Gananoque Ontario | September events 2017

Happy Labour day!

 

 

Labour Day (Labor Day in the United States) is an annual holiday to celebrate the achievements of workers. For most countries, Labour Day is synonymous with, or linked with, International Workers’ Day, which occurs on 1 May.
In Canada and the United States, Labour Day is celebrated on the first Monday of September and considered the unofficial end of summer, with summer vacations ending and students returning to school around then.

The form for the celebration of Labor Day was outlined in the first proposal for the holiday: A street parade to exhibit to the public “the strength and esprit de corps of the trade and labor organizations”, followed by a festival for the workers and their friends and families. This became the pattern for Labor Day celebrations. Speeches by prominent men and women were introduced later, as more emphasis was placed upon the civil significance of the holiday. Still later, by a resolution of the American Federation of Labor convention of 1909, the Sunday preceding Labor Day was adopted as Labor Sunday and dedicated to the spiritual and educational aspects of the Labor movement.

Labor Day is called the “unofficial end of summer” because it marks the end of the cultural summer season. Many take their two-week vacations during the two weeks ending Labor Day weekend. Many fall activities, such as school and sports begin about this time.

Gananoque’s Farmer’s Market

 

 

Willa Mamet + Paul Miller: two voices and a guitar, like you’re at the kitchen table with us. Folk, country, Americana, and grassy soul. All at the beautiful farmer’s market of this wonderful community. Come enjoy!

Hear what Patti LuPone calls “heartbreaking, ancient” – and what Vermont Public Radio’s Robert Resnik loves so much: “This music deserves to be preserved, and celebrated, and performed. Willa Mamet and Paul Miller have exactly what it takes to get the job done, and the pleasure is in the delivery – at their best, Willa Mamet and Paul Miller invite you into that Vermont kitchen when they first found musical magic so many years ago. Come listen to some fine music masterfully played and sung.” -Robert Resnik, Vermont Public Radio

The Birds and the bees

 

 

A romantic comedy with a bit of Buzz!

It’s nearly time for the last-ever annual Turkey Days Festival and the excitement in town is palpable. Sarah, a turkey farmer, has just left her husband and moved back home with her mother, a beekeeper. They live across the road from Earl, a farmer who’s been keeping busy with a long list of ladies ever since his divorce.

This raucously funny new comedy tackles sex, love, science, family, and the artificial insemination of turkeys.

FREE PLAYREADINGS

firehallcropThe 1000 Islands Playhouse is having a free reading of Siberian Summer on December 4 at 7:30pm and of Lore on December 6 at 7:30pm.

Siberian Summer is written by Playwrights’ Unit member Paul Van Dyck
Join us for the first public reading of works created in our Playwrights’ Unit, led by professional directors and performed by professional actors! 

Siberian Summer chronicles the adventures of three retired small-town Ontario women who decide to take a vacation on the Trans-Siberian Railway. Based on an actual trip the playwright took in 2008 with his mother and her friends, this whimsical comedy examines the often humorous and sometimes poignant cultural differences between nationalities and generations.

Lore is written by Playwrights’ Unit members Jodi Essery and Attila Clemann
Join us for the first public reading of works created in our Playwrights’ Unit, led by professional directors and performed by professional actors!

Lore is a duet. A young girl prays that her dead mother be returned to her. Instead, an emaciated 7-foot-tall Viking falls from the sky. Our young heroine must open herself up to an unexpected and uninvited stranger who does not speak her language, and lives by none of the rules of her everyday world. Together they will rage, defy, laugh, eat, struggle, become lost, fail, hold on, and step into a blizzard of not knowing in an effort to return the Viking from whence he came.

Come to the Firehall Theatre and enjoy the wit and culture of Siberian Summer and Lore.
