October 15 and 22 – 2pm matinées

When the large Weston family reunites after their father unexpectedly disappears, their Oklahoma homestead explodes in a maelstrom of repressed truths and unsettling secrets. A vitriolic matriarch, a toxic family history, generations of scandal and backstabbing, all contribute to making this a heart-pounding and compulsively watchable piece of theatre. At once sensationally entertaining and deeply moving, this Pulitzer Prize and Tony award-winning play was also adapted into an Academy Award nominated film starring Meryl Streep and Julia Roberts. Join the Borelians for their once-in-a-lifetime undertaking of this immensely ambitious and challenging modern masterpiece.

Operation Daddy: Here Come the War Brides
An original Musical by Liz Auston
Director/Choreographer: Liz Auston
Music Director: Alissa Smith
Producers: Liz Auston and Judy Anderson

Performances: November 17, 18, 19, 24, 25, 26 at 8pm
Matinées November 19 and 26 at 2pm

This WWII-era musical is both fun and historically significant — based on true experiences of Canada’s War Brides as recounted to the show’s writer, Liz Auston. The show focuses on the lives of three fictional women who have but one thing in common: they fall for a Canadian Serviceman during WWII and eventually find themselves bound for Canada to reunite with a spouse they barely had time to know. But will the fairy-tale beginnings work out in the end, as they hope?
Presented by SCS Musicals and Port Perry Town Hall Players

 

Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike
Written by Christopher Durang
Produced by Kyle Brough and Helen Coughlin
Directed by John Lunman
Presented by The Borelians Community Theatre and Port Perry Town Hall Players

Performances: February 16, 17, 18, 23, 24, 25 – 8pm
February 18 and 25 – 2pm matinées

A middle-aged brother and sister, who opted to stay home to care for their aging parents instead of pursuing careers, are visited by their worldly actress sister and her 20 year-old, (sometimes fully clothed) boy-toy. Through hilarious bickering and pointed insults, the siblings rehash hard-feelings and paranoid insecurities while deciding the fate of their parent’s cherry orchard. This hilariously wild comedy written by one of America’s premier playwrights ran for several years on Broadway and won the 2013 Tony Award for Best Play. It has been described a “Chekhov in a blender”, and is unlike any play you have ever seen before.

Neil Young is an iconic Canadian singer-songwriter and musician who began performing in a group covering Shadows instrumentals in Canada in 1960, before moving to California in 1966, where he co-founded the band Buffalo Springfield, and later joined Crosby, Stills & Nash in 1969. He released his first album in 1968 and has since forged a successful and acclaimed solo career, spanning over 45 years and 35 studio albums, with a continuous and uncompromising exploration of musical styles. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame website describes Young as “one of rock and roll’s greatest songwriters and performers”. Young’s music is characterized by his distinctive guitar work, deeply personal lyrics and characteristic alto or high tenor singing voice. While Young has experimented with differing music styles throughout a varied career, including electronic music, most of his best known work is either acoustic folk-rock and country rock or electric, amplified hard rock (most often in collaboration with the band Crazy Horse). Musical styles such as alternative rock and grunge also adopted elements from Young. His influence has caused some to dub him the “Godfather of Grunge”.
