England, 1959. A free-spirited widow risks everything to open a bookshop in a conservative East Anglian coastal town. While bringing about a surprising cultural awakening, she earns the polite but ruthless opposition of a local grand dame and the support and affection of a reclusive book loving widower. Based on Penelope Fitzgerald’s acclaimed novel and starring Emily Mortimer, Patricia Clarkson and Bill Nighy.

Queen Milli of Galt

 

 

Did Edward VIII really marry a small-town Ontario schoolteacher in 1919?

There is a roadside graveyard near Galt, Ontario, part of what is now the municipality of Cambridge, on the Grand River near Waterloo. The cemetery is like hundreds of burial grounds in rural Ontario — hushed, historic, fascinating. But this particular site holds a clue, literally etched in stone, to a hundred-year-old mystery.

Inscribed on the monument of Millicent Milroy, a quiet local schoolteacher who died in 1984, are the words “Millicent Milroy, daughter of James and Helen Jane Milroy, Wife of Edward (VIII), Duke of Windsor, 1894 – 1972.”

“It is a historic fact that the Prince of Wales, Edward VIII, visited Galt in 1919, and that Millicent Milroy met him during his royal tour. That’s really where the evidence trail ends,” says Carolee. “But for more than 60 years, Millicent, a sober, upstanding community figure, repeated her story with such clear-eyed conviction that it can’t simply be dismissed. Queen Milli of Galt imagines her romance with the dashing Edward, and how their relationship may have unfolded.”

FRANKENSTEIN: It’s Alive….With Orchestra!

 

 

On Friday, October 19th, 2018 from 7:30-9:30 in the Mason Theatre at P&DCI. The 1931 Universal Studio’s “Frankenstein” starring Boris Karloff was produced without a musical background. American composer Michael Shapiro wrote a 70-minute score which will be performed under the dialogue of the film, by the RIDEAU LAKES ORCHESTRA. For modern day movie goers, Shapiro’s haunting music makes a significant impact by adding more emotion to an already dramatic film.

The Ontario premiere of FRANKENSTEIN: It’s Alive…..With Orchestra! Doors open at 6:45pm, tickets available only at the door, Adults $20, students 17 and under $12.

The Rideau Lakes Orchestra, formerly known as Symphonium, has a strong connection with Perth and its area, having performed at the Stewart Park Festival, St Paul’s Church and local high schools. Members of the orchestra hail from Perth and the Ottawa Valley. They are professional musicians, each with a wide range of experience performing in orchestras, military bands and chamber groups. Using both acoustic and electronic instruments, the RLO plays a repertoire as distinctive as its instrumentation. The RLO performed its very first concert at St. James Anglican Church on April 17, 2016.

In today’s Beirut, a civilian dispute blown out of proportion finds a Lebanese Christian, and a Palestinian refugee, facing off in court.
