JEFF HENNESSY & The Sundries / HARVEY MARCOTTE – Double Bill
Aug 29 @ 7:30 pm

Join us for a double-bill with two extraordinary of the region’s finest folk-roots-country singer-songwriters and multi-instrumentalists. Jeff Hennessy and Harvey Marcotte will each take the stage with an incredibly talented roster of musicians, performing their own music separately, and plus a few tunes together for one rollicking show.

JEFF HENNESSY, is a singer-songwriter, singer, and multi-instrumentalist based in Wolfville, launched his first CD right here in Annapolis Royal some 20 years ago, and has maintained deep connections in the community. He’s performed on the King’s stage twice in the last year alone, and with this concert he’ll be joined by his band THE SUNDRIES. They’re all professional musicians who have united in their collective love of country music to create a band that not only showcases high level musicianship but also creates a sound that will get everybody moving – a high energy night of old country, new country, and “countryish” other songs. Amazing musicians and a really fun show – super cool country music!

He`s played professionally since the tender age of 15.  Performing the Acadian band Blou, he traveled to France, South America, and several Canadien festivals.

KINKY BOOTS – Broadway Musical
Aug 31 @ 7:00 pm

KINKY BOOTS The Broadway Musical in HD

Filmed at the Adelphi Theatre in London, Kinky Boots the Tony, Grammy & Olivier Award-winning musical from pop icon Cyndi Lauper and legendary playwright Harvey Fierstein, directed and choreography by Tony Award-winner Jerry Mitchell and based on the film written by Geoff Deane and Tim Firth, hits the big screen.

Inspired by true events, this huge-hearted hit tells the story of two people with nothing in common – or so they think. Charlie (played by Olivier Award nominee Killian Donnelly) is a factory owner struggling to save his family business, and Lola (played by Matt Henry, who won an Olivier Award for the role) is a fabulous entertainer with a wildly exciting idea. With a little compassion and a lot of understanding, this unexpected pair learn to embrace their differences and create a line of sturdy stilettos unlike any the world has ever seen! But in the end, their most sensational achievement is their friendship.

Runtime: 2 hours 25 minutes

COIG
Sep 15 @ 7:30 pm

When the creative juices are flowing, there’s no holding back the talented quartet that makes up the Celtic supergroup Còig: Fiddler Chrissy Crowley, multi-instrumentalist Darren McMullen, piano player Jason Roach and Rachel Davis on fiddle, viola, vocals.

Còig’s music is a unique combination of influences that could only come from these four players. It’s traditional for sure, but it’s performed in a lot of non-traditional ways. “We all come from sort of a traditional background, but then we have different influences that we’re interested in,” explains fiddler and singer Rachel Davis. “Jason has a jazz degree, and listens to a lot of different music. Chrissy likes to dive into a lot of world music, Darren comes from a kind of Irish theme from playing around. More of the traditional Cape Breton music is really what I love, plus all the folk songs, so it’s an interesting mix.”

That leads to the other magic ingredient in Còig. It’s a band of fast friends, people that grew up together, played together, and knew each other way before they ever considered being in a band together. The best in trad music, in a non-traditional way. That’s Còig.

Darren McMullen – guitar, mandolin, mandola, banjo, bouzouki, whistles, flute, vocals
Rachel Davis – fiddle, viola, vocals
Jason Roach – piano
Chrissy Crowley – fiddle

XARA CHORAL THEATRE: RINGS THROUGH WATER
Sep 21 @ 7:30 pm

Rings Through Water is new creation that uses ethereal choral singing, contemporary and traditional Indigenous dance, along with powerful text and theatrical presentation, to tell three short stories about water.  

It’s a collaboration between five artists – three Indigenous and two Settlers. Their desire to overcome their own embodied prejudices, privilege, and pain is central to their artistic process and to the beautiful narratives of this show.

Depending on its form, water has the capacity to amplify sound, distort it, or mute it; how do we do the same as we navigate our relationship with this precious resource and one another? Together they speak for water, lift up the voices of its protectors, and amplify the voices of the missing and murdered  Indigenous women who have met their end in it. They also offer a reconciliation-based model for Indigenous and Settler collaboration.

  • Deantha Edmunds, Inuk poet & soprano
  • Lisa Nasson, Mi’kmaq dramaturge
  • Sarain Fox, Anishinaabe choreographer
  • Christina Murray, Settler choral conductor
  • Jennifer Trites, Settler composer

ELAPULTIEK
Oct 6 @ 7:30 pm

Elapultiek (ehl-ah-bool-dee-egg) – “we are looking towards” – marks the first time Two Planks and a Passion Theatre has commissioned an Indigenous playwright from Nova Scotia to create a new work for the company. The show was a huge success as an outdoor performance last Summer. Now, Elapultiek begins its journey as a touring indoor production.

Because the play was designed to be performed “in the round”, King’s Theatre offers a special opportunity for a limited number of patrons to purchase seats on the stage. These are available on a first come first served basis.

 

 


ABOUT THE PLAY

In the time of Idle No More, a young Mi’kmaw drum singer and a Euro-Nova Scotian biologist meet at dusk each day to count a population of endangered Chimney Swifts. As the relationship deepens over time, they struggle with their differing views of the world. Each ‘count night’ reveals a deeper complexity of connection to land, history, and ecology, and of reconciliation on a personal level.

Playwright and performer Shalan Joudry is an oral storyteller, hand-drum singer and poet from the traditional district of Kespukwitk (southwest Nova Scotia). Following years of raising children, performing, writing, and ecology work, Shalan now lives and works in her community of Bear River First Nation, sharing messages of reconnecting to both land and culture.
