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.

GREAT LAKE SWIMMERS
Sep 27 @ 7:30 pm

Great Lake Swimmers is a beloved indie folk act in Canada and beyond. The CBC has called them “a national treasure” and their music has taken them around the world, sharing a sound that is at once familiar and distinct, using the tools of folk music as the starting point to delve deeper.

Great Lake Swimmers have twice been nominated for Juno Awards, have been shortlisted for the prestigious Polaris Prize, and won a Canadian Indie Award for Favourite Folk/Roots Artist/Group. They have shared the stage as support for such musical luminaries as Robert Plant, Feist, and Calexico, and have appeared as headliners for many of Canada’s major Folk Music festivals. Their relentless touring schedule and countless live shows have helped them develop devoted fan bases across Canada, the US, Europe, the UK and many points beyond. Mojo dubbed them “Ambient Zen Americana” and Exclaim has described them as a “cherished blend of folk and orchestral indie pop.”

A HARD DAY’S NIGHT
Sep 28 @ 7:30 pm
Celebrate the 50th Anniversary of release ofThe Beatles Abbey Road with the Greatest Jukebox Movie Ever Made, Re-Mastered

A Hard Day’s Night captures the biggest band in the world at the height of Beatlemania. Directed by Richard Lester and originally released in 1964, the film follows the Beatles over a 36-hour period that sees them traveling by train, hiding out from fans in a hotel room, losing Paul McCartney‘s grandfather multiple times and, finally, arriving just in the nick of time for their TV performance. It blends elements of documentary with concert film, in addition to plenty of just-for-fun scenes, like the band responding to fan mail, chasing down Paul’s grandfather at a casino and goofing off during rehearsals for their TV concert.

The undeniable heart of A Hard Day’s Night, though, is the music. Serving both as a soundtrack and a means of propelling the plot forward, almost all the hits from the titular album appear in the film. The title track plays as the band run from a horde of fans in the opening scene, while an impromptu performance of “I Should Have Known Better” provides a tender moment on the band’s train ride.

Over time, the film has revealed itself to be rather like the enigmatic opening chord to “A Hard Day’s Night” itself — it’s tough to pin it down exactly, but the second you hear it, you’re flooded with nostalgia, intrigue and pure joy.

 

Tickets: $11 Adult, $10 with Film Buff Card, $8 Youth.

All prices include HST.

Doors open 45 minutes before showtime. General admission seating, tickets at the door.

THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW
Oct 26 @ 9:00 pm

Let’s do the Time Warp Again

Campy, brilliant and utterly bonkers, it’s no wonder this is a cult classic and a much loved favourite. The only way to watch this is to sing along as enthusiastically and loudly as possible and if you don’t wake up the neighbours and had a knock at the door from the police, you’ve failed.

It’s quite hard to describe the plot past “Brad and Janet’s car breaks down and they find themselves in a house” because that’s when all hell breaks loose. Singing, dancing, Meat Loaf and a man in very tight golden underwear is just a small part of the madness and it’s very, very fun.

It’s not a movie, it’s an EXPERIENCE. First time experiencing The Rocky Horror Picture Show? Click here for some tips!

RAWLINS CROSS
Nov 9 @ 7:30 pm

Rawlins Cross 30th Anniversary “Flying Colours” Tour

Celebrating its 30th anniversary, Rawlins Cross is approaching legendary status as one of Canada’s most accomplished and beloved Celtic music groups. With the upcoming release of its 10th studio recording, “Flying Colours”, Rawlins Cross continues to capture the hearts and imaginations of a dedicated global fan-base developed over an acclaimed career.

The band was formed in St. John’s, Newfoundland in the late 1980s by songwriting brothers Dave Panting (guitar and mandolin), Geoff Panting (keyboards and accordion) and Ian McKinnon (highland pipes, tin whistle and bodhran). With the solid rhythm section of Halifax bassist and Chapman Stick player Brian Bourne and Ontario-based drummer Howie Southwood, Rawlins Cross enlisted PEI singer Joey Kitson to complete its signature sound.

Since the beginning, Rawlins Cross has been at the vanguard of the fusion of Celtic traditional music with the rhythms of Rock, Pop and Worldbeat music. Equally at ease with a soulful Highland Air (MacPherson’s Lament) or a raucous party song (Colleen, Wild Rose, Reel ‘n’ Roll), Rawlins Cross never fails to electrify its faithful fans. Over the years, Rawlins Cross has always been a “fan favourite” on the North American and European music festival circuit and regularly plays to sold-out concert halls across Canada.

30 years and 9 albums later, Rawlins Cross continues to maintain a steady course with their 10th studio recording “Flying Colours” (November 2019). “Flying Colours” will prove to be another significant mile marker in the band’s storied career – an eclectic mix of the old world and the new.
