Performances: July 21, 22, 23 at 8pm
and a matinee July 23 at 2pm.

A Theatre 3X60 production
Directed by Joan Etienne
Production Design by Carey Nicholson

This witty satire pokes fun at 19th century playwrights and theatre conventions. Two theatre collaborators, writing a new libretto, set out to solve the problem of losing their young composer when he accidently overhears a romantic exchange between his fiancé and a ‘has-been’ leading actor. What ensues is a fast- paced, hilarious series of antics and twists contrived by one of the collaborators to conceal the truth, soothe the fragile ego of the young composer, and save their libretto.

The Neil Young Show 220x220NEIL YOUNG TRIBUTE SHOW

Performance: Saturday Nov. 5, 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”.
