LETTICE AND LOVAGE
by Peter Shaffer

Performances October 12, 13, 14, 19, 20, 21 at 8pm
Matinees October 14 and 21 at 2pm

Presented by Borelians Community Theatre

From the playwright who brought us Equus and Amadeus, comes an uproarious comedy that can only be described as, “Extremely British”! Originally written for the incomparable Maggie Smith (who won the Tony award for her performance in 1990), this hilarious satire is centred on a flamboyant countryside tour guide who loves to dramatically embellish upon British history. Her life is forever changed in an instant when she meets her surprising counterpart: a fact-obsessed, London-based official who is in desperate need of distraction.

Friday October 13th is also the show’s GALA PREMIER CELEBRATION. Before the show, starting at 7pm, there will be free wine; free desserts, and after the show you are invited to tour the stage and meet the cast and crew. This is a great opportunity to experience local theatre like never before!

When Fairy Bon-Bon and the Demon Diablo clash, selfish Prince Pierre is transformed into a terrible Beast. To break the curse Pierre must fall in love before the last petal on a magical rose falls. But who could ever love such a monster? Enter feisty Belle Baguette from the nearby village. When she stands up to the Beast their affection for each other grows but will the Beast be able to melt Belle’s heart before it’s too late? A zany cast of characters become part of the story with much hilarity, sharp witted humour and help from the audience. With music straight out of today’s pop charts, song sheets and Broadway show-stoppers, this telling of Beauty and The Beast has laughter and music in spades — great entertainment for all ages!

After Mary, a young nun, burns down the residential school she teaches at, her path from faith to disillusionment plays out before her eyes.

The Neil Young Show 220x220NEIL YOUNG TRIBUTE SHOW

Performance: Saturday Nov. 11, 8pm

Presented by Ultimate Artists Live

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”.
