About the Nutcracker

Clara is given an enchanted Nutcracker doll on Christmas Eve. As midnight strikes, she creeps downstairs to find a magical adventure awaiting her and her Nutcracker.

The magician Drosselmeyer transforms the drawing room for a battle between mice and toy soldiers. During the battle, Clara saves the Nutcracker’s life – so breaking a magical spell that turned him from a boy to a toy – and the Mouse King is defeated. In celebration, Drosselmeyer sweeps Clara and the Nutcracker off to the Kingdom of Sweets, where they meet the Sugar Plum Fairy and take part in a wonderful display of dances. The next morning, Clara’s adventures seem to have been more than just a dream.

Shelley Marshall’s HOLD MOMMY’S CIGARETTE
Mar 10 @ 2:00 pm

This is a stunning story of an unfiltered life, written and performed by Shelley Marshall of Bear River and directed by Linda Kash. It took 10 years for Hamilton-born Marshall to create the work, the worthwhile result of resilience, recovery, and reflection while exploring many the genres of performance; clown, stand-up, improv, buffoon, and play.

The response has been spectacular, touching people so deeply that audiences have lined up over a hour to share their own stories with her. It’s been described as raw and sweet, funny and heart-breaking all at once, an emotional romp from heart-wrenching to gut laughing. “She had you in the palm of your hand from the opening scene”, said one patron, while another said “Shelley Marshall was so brilliant! It really is very emotional to watch her story come to life. But the fact it could be so bloody funny as well?”

For five years, old Mommy’s Cigarette was been a sold-out success in theatres in Toronto and surrounding cities, receiving Gold in the category of “Best Theatre Production” in 2013, “Best New Discovery” by Now Magazine, and nominated “Best Female Stand Up” in Canada by the Canadian Comedy Awards. Marshall has hosted the popular, televised Hamilton Music Awards for the past four years.

In light of the national acclaim she has garnered, what makes Hold Mommy’s Cigarette such a success to Shelley personally is the attention it has contributed in raising mental health awareness. “I knew creating works of art that expressed my experience, my truth, and my understanding, were what would bring a joyful purpose to my life. I feel I not only have an opportunity, but an obligation, to convey a message that can help people heal.” Quickly blazing an uncharted trail, this comedic icon won’t be slowing down any time soon.

Marshall, who has recently settled in Bear River, Nova Scotia, invites you to come to her show with an open mind and promises you’ll leave with a full heart.

BIZET’S CARMEN – Met Opera
Mar 16 @ 2:00 pm

Mezzo-soprano Clémentine Margaine reprises her remarkable portrayal of opera’s ultimate seductress, a triumph in her 2017 debut performances, with impassioned tenors Yonghoon Lee and Roberto Alagna as her lover, Don José. Omer Meir Wellber and Louis Langrée share conducting duties for Sir Richard Eyre’s powerful production, a Met favorite since its 2009 premiere.

The opera takes place in and around Seville, a city that, by the time Carmen was written, had already served many operatic composers as an exotic setting conducive to erotic intrigues and turmoil (Rossini’s Il Barbiere di Siviglia and Verdi’s La Forza del Destino, among others). The hometown of Don Juan, the city also inspired Mozart with Don Giovanni, and Beethoven used Seville as the setting for a study of marital fidelity in Fidelio.

ALICE’S ADVENTURES IN WONDERLAND
Mar 29 @ 7:00 pm

We are delighted to welcome YOUNG COMPANY PRODUCTIONS back to the King’s Theatre stage with an original production of Lewis Carroll’s classic story, ALICE’S ADVENTURES IN WONDERLAND.

“Curiouser and curiouser”. And so begins Alice’s journey into Lewis Carroll’s Wonderland of entertaining encounters with a veritable host of bizarre creatures from a Dodo, Mock Turtle, dancing lobsters, and of course the White Rabbit and the March Hare. Young Company Productions is delighted to be back with a fresh and original adaptation of this well-loved and classic tale.

YCP has already brought forth the thought provoking and challenging ‘Mind-Shift’ presentation last spring, and on Canada Day the troupe had wowed audiences with their evocative production of ‘Shakespeare by The Shore’ at the Oqwa’titek Amphitheatre. Now they’re back and bigger than ever, rising to the challenge of bringing to life “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland”, this time on the main stage of Annapolis Royal’s King’s Theatre for three performances March 29, 30, and 31st.

Co-directors Linda Hulme-Leahy and Simon Bonnington are thrilled to be working with the cast of 29 keen and eager young thespians. And with their new adaptation, taken straight from Carroll‘s original text, they have free reign to craft the production for our local stage.

We very much hope you’ll enjoy the show. And if you don’t? “Off with their heads!”
