The Gravitational Pull at Studio Theatre Perth

 

In this play, with the quirky title “The Gravitational Pull of Bernice Trimble”, there are no murderers wielding weapons, no characters rushing in and out through multiple doors, and no one bursting into song every other line. There may be those of you reading this who say-“Thank goodness!” Not a velvet cape or feather boa in sight! The play is set in present day-it could take place in your own mother’s kitchen.

In this play you will hopefully come face to face with yourself as you relate to one of the adult siblings, or perhaps to their mother. If we have done our job well, you will feel right at home with an occasional family outburst. You may fit comfortably somewhere in the sibling birth order scenario. You will have ample opportunity to enjoy quick wit and gentle humor- and the characters will have to pause while you laugh after many of the lines.

In this play you will be transported from the present to the past and back again. Iris, Bernice’s middle child, tell us, “Sometimes, the only way out is to go in. Can’t make things up. Can’t wish. Can’t hope. One must tell it like it is. That’s what I’ll do.” Iris is your guide. The play challenges Iris, her sister Sarah and her brother Peter to accept each other’s differences and to honor the wishes of loved ones. There will be times when you will be feeling a tug at your heart strings. There will be moments of déjà vu. You will experience the celebration of a mother’s love for her children, and her children’s love for her. This play will take you to where all of us could be one day, and it will do so with love and grace.

The Gravitational Pull of Bernice Trimble premieres at the Studio Theatre on Thursday, January 17th for seven shows, Jan. 17, 18, 19, 25 and 26 at 7:30 pm and Jan. 20 and 27 at 2 pm.  Advance tickets are $24 and are available exclusively at Tickets Please in the Matheson House Museum Visitor Centre, 11 Gore St. E (613 485-6434; ticketsplease.ca). Tickets are $24 at the Studio Theatre box office on show days, available 1 hour before opening.  Attend opening night and save $5!   Rush tickets for students with ID are just $ 10 at the door.

Merry Christmas!

 

Many people in Canada and the United States celebrate Christmas Day on December 25. The day celebrates Jesus Christ’s birth.

People celebrate Christmas Day in many ways. It is often combined with customs from pre-Christian winter celebrations. Many people decorate their homes, visit family or friends and exchange gifts. In the days or even weeks before Christmas Day, many people decorate their homes and gardens with lights, Christmas trees and much more.

It is common to organize a special meal, often consisting of turkey and a lot of other festive foods, for family or friends and exchange gifts with them. Children, in particular, often receive a lot of gifts from their parents and other relatives and the mythical figure Santa Claus.

The original meaning of Christmas is a special church service, or mass, to celebrate the birth of Christ. The story of the Nativity, or the events surrounding the birth of Jesus, are particularly important in religious celebrations of Christmas. However, many traditions that are around today have their roots in pre-Christian winter festivals. These include the importance of candles and decorations made from evergreen bushes and tree, symbolizing everlasting light and life.

Popular modern customs of the holiday include gift giving, completing an Advent calendar or Advent wreath, Christmas music and caroling, lighting a Christingle, viewing a Nativity play, an exchange of Christmas cards, church services, a special meal, pulling Christmas crackers and the display of various Christmas decorations, including Christmas trees, Christmas lights, nativity scenes, garlands, wreaths, mistletoe, and holly. In addition, several closely related and often interchangeable figures, known as Santa Claus, Father Christmas, Saint Nicholas, and Christkind, are associated with bringing gifts to children during the Christmas season and have their own body of traditions and lore.

National Day of Remembrance & Action on Violence Against Women Vigil

 

 

Join the Lanark County Interval House on December 6th, 2018 for the National Day of Remembrance & Action on Violence Against Women Vigil in Perth.

On December 6, 1989, 13 female students and a female administrator at l’École Polytechnique de Montréal were murdered by Marc Lépine in the name of “fighting feminism”. The event shocked our nation and led Parliament to designate December 6 as a national day of remembrance.

The National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence against Women is about remembering victims, as well as a time to take action. We each have the responsibility to stand up against misogyny, sexism, and hate in our community, country and around the world.

Please join Lanark County Interval House on December 6th at the Women’s Monument in Perth to remember those lives lost due to gender-based violence. We also invite you to use the time to reflect on how you can take concrete action to eliminate all forms of violence against women and girls in Lanark County and beyond.

All genders welcome and encouraged to attend. You may choose to wear purple as a sign of solidarity with all those who who have experience violence at the hands of men and advocate for a world from from gender-based violence.

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.

Town of Perth – July ongoing events 2018

Happy Canada Day!

On July 1, 1867, Canada became a self-governing dominion of Great Britain and a federation of four provinces: Nova Scotia; New Brunswick; Ontario; and Quebec. The anniversary of this date was called Dominion Day until 1982. Since 1983, July 1 has been officially known as Canada Day.

In many towns and cities, municipal governments organize a range of events, often outdoors. These include pancake breakfasts, parades, concerts, carnivals, festivals, firework displays and citizenship ceremonies for new Canadian citizens. The celebrations often have a patriotic mood. Canada’s national flag is widely displayed and a lot of people paint their faces red and white, which are Canada’s national colors. The celebrations in Ottawa, which is Canada’s capital city, are particularly exuberant.

History

On July 1, 1867, the British North Americas Act created the Dominion of Canada as a federation of four provinces. This event is known as the confederation of Canada. The four original provinces were created from the former British colonies of Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and the Province of Canada, which was divided into the provinces of Quebec and Ontario. Canada’s boundaries have been extended since 1867. The country now consists of 10 provinces and three territories.

As the anniversary of Confederation, Dominion Day, and later Canada Day, was the date set for a number of important events, such as the first national radio network hookup by the Canadian National Railway (1927); the inauguration of the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation’s cross-country television broadcast, with Governor General Vincent Massey’s Dominion Day speech from Parliament Hill (1958); the flooding of the Saint Lawrence Seaway (1958); the first colour television transmission in Canada (1966); the inauguration of the Order of Canada (1967); and the establishment of “O Canada” as the country’s national anthem (1980). Other events fell on the same day coincidentally, such as the first day of the Battle of the Somme in 1916—shortly after which Newfoundland recognized July 1 as Memorial Day to commemorate the Newfoundland Regiment’s heavy losses during the battle—and the enactment of the Chinese Immigration Act in 1923—leading Chinese-Canadians to refer to July 1 as Humiliation Day and boycott Dominion Day celebrations until the act was repealed in 1947.

Symbol

Canada’s national flag is seen on Canada Day. This consists of two vertical red rectangles separated by a white square. The white square contains a red image of a maple leaf. Canada’s national colors are red and white and are used in many ways on Canada Day. Some people wear red and white clothing and others paint their faces in these colors.

Barndoor Theatre Presents : Box and Cox, Complete !

 

BarnDoor Theatre Presents “Box and Cox, Complete!” from July 6th – 8th & 19th-22nd, 2018 at the Full Circle Theatre in Perth.

Called “the best farce of the 19th century” F.C. Burnand’s BOX AND COX is a 50 minute romp. Mrs. Bouncer has rented a room to both Box and Cox — without either knowing of the other! When they finally meet, the fur flies — until they find they are long-lost brothers.

J.S. Coyne’s BOX AND COX, MARRIED AND SETTLED is a sequel that is seldom seen, although just as funny. Two years later, B and C are back, each now with a wife. Fanny and Sophie were schoolmates — who can’t stand each other. More fun ensues.

Men on the Tay Concert

 

 

The Men of the Tay Concert will be taking place on June 4th, 2018 at the St. James Anglican Church in Perth.

The Men of the Tay was formed in the winter of 2000. A group of 12 men met each week to simply sing and enjoy each other’s company. It was a wonderful time spent together gathered around a piano in the living room, with borrowed music and a few harmonic attempts. It was in the fall of 2002 that the idea of doing something more began and soon the chorus began to grow and expand and actually emerged to perform for the general public.

Now approaching 36 members, it has remained true to its ideals … to come together and sing. Concerts and performances are secondary to the opportunity to work together, to learn about music and to enjoy each other’s company.The chorus attempts to obtain the best music published for the male chorus at its level. It has a wide range of music: from Broadway, to Folk Songs, to Church and even comedy numbers. The chorus could be singing Doo-Wop and then turn around and work in Latin. It is all part of the experience of being a member.

The Men of the Tay meets each Monday from the second or third week of September to the second week of June. The rehearsals start at 7:00 PM and end promptly at 9:00 PM.

Rehearsals are held in the sanctuary at St. James the Apostle (Anglican) Church, 12 Harvey Street Perth, Ontario K7H 1W4. Both choirs normally recess from the end of their Christmas Concert through to the last week of January. The return date flexes a bit depending on the availability of the music, rehearsal space and other membership / music concerns.

Charley’s Aunt by Brandon Thomas

 

 

BarnDoor Productions Presents: Charley’s Aunt starting on June 8th, 2018 at the Full Circle Theatre in Perth.

Charley’s Aunt is the longest running farce in London history. It opened THREE YEARS before The Importance of Being Earnest and was still running after Earnest closed.

It’s a “chestnut” in the best sense of the word: always reliable, always warm, always familiar — and still very funny.

Jack and Charley want to ask their girls to tea to propose to them (oh, it’s very proper!) and use the excuse of Charley’s aunt coming to visit to make it right. But, when the venerable lady (“from Brazil, where the nuts come from!”) can’t come, the lads enlist the aid of their chum Babs to impersonate the aunt. Complications, needless to say, arise.

Stewart Park Festival

 

 

Mark your calendars for June 16th, 2018 for the Stewart Park Festival Kick-off to Summer Dance!

This year’s Kick-Off to Summer party, hosted by Stewart Park Festival, will be bigger than ever. So big, in fact, that it will take place on two different evenings.

On Saturday, June 16, the Festival will hold its annual Kick-Off to Summer Dance, this year featuring Big Bob Hammond & the Mississauga Delta Blues Band playing the best of the legendary Blues Brothers, the dynamic duo put together by comedy actors Dan Aykroyd and John Belushi as part of their musical sketch on Saturday Night Live.

Real life brothers Stan and Bob Hammond from Peterborough, Ontario, are steeped in the tradition of old Chicago and the tale of Jake and Elwood Blues the two brothers who set out on “a mission from God” to save the orphanage in which they grew up.

Tickets for the dance are $20 + $2.00 service fee in advance at Shadowfax, 67 Foster St. Perth, or by calling 1-800-518-2729 or $25 at the door.

For those coming from out-of-town for the dance be sure to book your room at the Best Western Plus Perth Parkside Inn & Spa where your special room rate will also include two free tickets to the dance.

And that’s not all! This year’s Kick-Off to Summer party will start with a Movie Night at the Crystal Palace in Perth on the Thursday prior to the dance (June 14). It will feature the original 1980 Blues Brothers movie playing on a giant screen, provided by the Together Smiths Falls, the organization responsible for Movies Under the Stars. There will be a canteen, complete with hot-dogs, popcorn and more, as well as a licenced bar hosted by local favourites Perth Brewery and Top Shelf Distillers.

The first 30 people through the door on Movie Night will receive a free Blues Brothers’ hat & glasses (to get them ready for the dance). Doors open at 8:00 pm, with the movie beginning at dusk. Movie Night is free for those with a dance ticket or $5.00 at the door.

Kick-Off to Summer is back! A party so big it takes 2 nights to get’er done.

Happy Father’s Day!

 

 

Father’s Day is an occasion to mark and celebrate the contribution that your own father has made to your life. Many people send or give cards or gifts to their fathers. It is a relatively modern holiday so different families have a range of traditions. Father’s Day is not a federal public holiday in Canada. It falls on a Sunday, which is a day off for many workers so many offices and stores are closed. However, some shopping precincts and stores, as well as restaurants, cafes and entertainment venues, may be particularly busy on Father’s Day.

There are some suggestions that the idea of Father’s Day may originate in pagan sun worship. Some branches of paganism see the Sun as the father of the universe. The June solstice occurs around the same time of year as Father’s Day so some people saw a link between the two.

The idea of a special day to honor fathers and celebrate fatherhood was introduced from the United States. A woman called Sonora Smart Dodd was inspired by the American Mother’s Day celebrations and planned a day to honor fathers early in the 20th century. The first Father’s Day was celebrated in Spokane, Washington on June 19, 1910.

In the United States, there are a range of events, which may have inspired the idea of Father’s Day. One of these was the start of the Mother’s Day tradition in the first decade of the 20th century. Another was a memorial service held in 1908 for a large group of men, many of them fathers, who were killed in a mining accident in Monongah, West Virginia in December 1907.

On Golden Pound

 

 

Heartwarming play On Golden Pond opens June 28 at Studio Theatre.

Some stories are timeless, because they’re founded on human truths that never change. They draw from the raw materials of our lives — love, family, longing, jealousy, fear of the future. And the older we get, the more we see ourselves in these wise, enduring narratives.

When the film On Golden Pond opened in theatres in 1981 — yes, 37 years ago — it struck a chord that still resonates across generations. On June 28th, our generation — whether we’re young, old, or somewhere in the middle — will once again be able to experience the heart and humour of On Golden Pond when the stage play opens at the Studio Theatre in Perth.
