A new comedy by Graeme Powell

Directed by Helen Coughlin
Produced by Kyle Brough

Performance:
February 14, 15, 16, 21, 22, 23 (8pm)
February 16, 23 (2pm matinees)

It’s been a long time since Kathryn De Lancie has set foot in Port Perry. Her decades spent in Hollywood have been a whirlwind of leading roles and rave reviews; but even with all the fame and adoration, try as she may, Kathryn has never been able to fully forget her rural roots.

Now here she is, on location, in Port Perry, and the town is vibrating with excitement. Everywhere you go, the only thing being talked about is how Hollywood has come to town with lights and cameras and the hometown girl who followed her dreams. Will local folk catch a glimpse of the town’s prodigal daughter, or will Kathryn manage to hide from her past, the same way she has for years?

This world premier comedy from Port Perry’s own playwright, Graeme Powell, is a fresh look at what makes small towns such fantastic places to live. Mixing huge laughs with local history, familiar names, and instantly recognizable characters, Palmer Park reminds us that there is as feeling in our hearts which we all have in common… home.

Tickets:
Adults: $24
Students (18 and under): $12 with valid student ID
Groups: $20 for 6 or more Adults for the same performance

JOHN PRIMER & THE REAL DEAL BLUES BAND
Performance: Thursday, February 28th – 8 pm
Presented by Music by the Bay

You can’t paint the blues without the Primer

As the bandleader and lead guitarist for Muddy Waters, Willie Dixon, Magic Slim & The Teardrops, John Primer’s virtuosity as a blues musician was forged by legends. John started playing on Maxwell Street, the birthplace of Chicago blues and soon became the house bandleader at the infamous Theresa’s Lounge for seven years alongside Sammy Lawhorn, Junior Wells, James Cotton and others.

John Primer has undisputedly helped build the sound and style of Chicago blues as we know it today. The echoes of tradition bellowing from the birthplaces he played such as: Maxwell Street, Theresa’s, Checkerboard and Rosa’s Lounges, pulse from every chord in his fingers today. Having played or recorded with a who’s who of blues greats including Gary Clark Jr., Derek Trucks, Johnny Winter, and Buddy Guy to name a few, John Primer’s personal accolades, including Lifetime Achievement Awards, reflect his countless contributions to the history of the blues.

There are very few blues fans, critics or musicians who will deny the fact that John Primer is the real deal and a Chicago Blues Living Legend.

Coming April 2019… Dynamite Dames!

DYNAMITE DAMES

Book by Liz Auston and Conrad Boyce
Director: Kathy Knight
Music Director: Alissa Smith
Choreographer:
Presented by SCS Musicals/Scugog Choral Society

PERFORMANCES:
Evenings: April 4, 5, 6, 11, 12 at 8pm
Matinees: April 6, 7, 13 at 2pm

 

The divas are back! Dynamite Dames is the creation of local playwrights Liz Auston and Conrad Boyce, originally performed in 2004 and one of SCS’s most-requested musicals. Get ready for 2 hours of dynamite performances as the divas and show-stopping hits jkeep on coming! At its heart Dynamite Dames celebrates the spirit of women. For years Jane has lovingly dedicated herself to the wants and needs of a wonderful husband and two nearly-grown kids. A promising performer in a past-life, her only singing engagements in recent years were those during tub time when the kids were little and her dramatic repertoire rests solidly with “Good Night Moon”. When a local theatre troupe shockingly earns first-dibs at staging a huge Broadway mega-hit — with lots of great roles for women — Jane musters the courage to squelch self-doubt and audition for the show. But Jane is not alone in wanting to shake free of a familiar role, as she is joined by a multitude of over-qualified, talented women who seem to share in a similar dream.

Dames Night – Friday April 5th at 7pm – Come as your favourite Broadway Diva (or Divo) and join us for delicious eats and light beverages before the curtain rises. After the show, stick around to meet the cast and chat with the creators of Dynamite Dames as well as members of the original 2004 cast… a fun night! (Licensed event, ages 19 years of age and over)

Ticket Pricing
Adults: $28
Students (18 and under): $22 with valid student ID
