Coming in February 2019… Palmer Park


A new play about Port Perry
by Graeme Powell

Presented by Borelians Community Theatre
Directed by Helen Coughlin
Produced by Kyle Brough


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.

GALA NIGHT:  Purchase your ticket for Friday February 15th and join us for a very special evening.  Arrive at 7pm to enjoy delicious desserts, finger foods and free drinks in the patron’s lounge along with live music before the show.  After the show, stick around for a public adjudication from ACT-CO and experience community theatre like never before!

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

Coming in February 2019… John Primer and 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.
