Now Playing… Footloose: The Musical

Footloose thumbnail 220 x 220FOOTLOOSE

Performances: May 18, 19, 20, 25, 26, 27 at 8pm
Matinees on May 20 and 28 at 2pm

Presented by GHF Productions
Stage Adaptation by DEAN PITCHFORD and WALTER BOBBIE

Music by TOM SNOW Lyrics by DEAN PITCHFORD
Additional Music by ERIC CARMEN, SAMMY HAGAR, KENNY LOGGINS and JIM STEINMAN

One of the most explosive movie musicals in recent memory bursts onto the live stage with exhilarating results. When Ren and his mother move from Chicago to a small farming town, Ren is prepared for the inevitable adjustment period at his new high school. What he isn’t prepared for are the rigorous local edicts, including a ban on dancing instituted by the local preacher, determined to exercise the control over the town’s youth that he cannot command in his own home. When the reverend’s rebellious daughter sets her sights on Ren, her roughneck boyfriend tries to sabotage Ren’s reputation, with many of the locals eager to believe the worst about the new kid. The heartfelt story that emerges is of a
father longing for the son he lost and of a young man aching for the father who walked out on him. To the rockin’ rhythm of its Oscar and Tony-nominated top 40 score (the soundtrack album reached number one on the Billboard charts and has sold over 15 million copies) and augmented with dynamic new songs for the stage musical, FOOTLOOSE celebrates the wisdom of listening to young people, guiding them with a warm heart and an open mind.

Presented through special arrangement with R & H Theatricals: www.rnh.com

Adults – $26,
Students (18 and under) – $21

Coming Soon… Salt-Water Moon

SALT-WATER MOON
By David French

Performances: July 11, 12, 20, 21, 22 – 8pm
Matinees July 8, 15 – 2pm

Presented by Theatre 3×60

The First World War is over and every day, the villages of Newfoundland are abandoned for a new life in the big city. Under the light of the moon, two former lovers meet to confront their past choices and contemplate a possible future. Salt-Water Moon is the story of a young man, Jacob Mercer, returning to Colley’s Point to win the heart of Mary Snow. Truly romantic, it is a glimpse of Eden caught in the moonlight over Newfoundland and Labrador. Salt-Water Moon is one of the Mercer Plays (along with Leaving Home, Of The Fields, Lately, 1949, and Soldier’s Heart) and is a Dora Mavor Moore Award winner. It is the gentlest play in the cycle, and answers many of the questions audiences for Leaving Home and Of the Fields, Lately may have had about the relationship of Mary and Jacob. It is considered by many to be the best of the Mercer Plays and, perhaps, of the entire David French canon. Direction by Carey Nicholson

Tickets: Adults – $30, Seniors and Students – $27, Groups of 10 – $25 each, EyeGo – $5

By Stephen Massicotte

Matinee: July 22 – 2pm

Presented by Theatre 3×60

Mary’s Wedding by Stephen Massicotte is a moving, lyrical play that illuminates the relationship between a young farmer and a recent English immigrant to Canada in the early part of the 20th century. It begins on the evening before Mary’s wedding in 1920, and tracks back to show her first meeting with Charlie, their growing attraction, and his departure for the war. Mary’s Wedding shows how memory informs the present, and how it becomes a means of survival.

Mary’s Wedding won the Alberta Playwriting Competition in 2000, and has since been produced many times in theatres across Canada, including the National Arts Centre, and in the United States, England, and Scotland. Direction by Carey Nicholson.
