Muses and Mysteries

10-Muses and Mysteries


If you have not heard (the word is out) about the Studio Theatre’s October 13–23 presentation of two 1-act plays, best sit up and take notice!

First, Whistler’s Mother, is a jolly construction about how the iconic painting may have been conceived. Quite possibly, the real events that preceded the artists portrait of his mom were less hilarious than is our play. Whereas “Mom” in the painting is spinning one disapproval after another under her Victorian bonnet, our Anna Whistler is both warm and amusing. You will leave the theatre chuckling.

Along with the play about Whistler is a thriller that will leave you holding your breath, and even feeling perhaps a wee bit spooked. The Attic is an eerie mystery about secrets and lies discovered in a dusty attic. The night air may hum with nervous laughter and discussion as people walk to their cars, reviewing what they’ve just seen.

Merry Christmas! :-)


Many Canadians have a day off work on December 25 and many spend the day with close relatives or friends. It is customary to exchange gifts, enjoy a special festive meal and, perhaps, attend a special church service.

In some Canadian families and in the United States, a mythical figure called Santa Claus brings gifts. He travels on a sleigh pulled by reindeer, enters homes via the chimney and leaves presents and candy in Christmas stockings or in a pile under the Christmas tree. In other families, individual members exchange carefully selected gifts. Popular gifts are toys, games and candy for children and clothes, music, alcohol and practical or luxury items for adults. Canadians may open their presents on Christmas Eve after a special church service or during the morning or after lunch on Christmas Day.

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.

presented by
Studio Theatre Perth
our movies keep getting better and better

In MAUDIE, arthritic Maud Dowley (Sally Hawkins)– who’s living in Nova Scotia with her selfish aunt — is shocked to learn that her money-loving brother has sold their family home. She answers an ad to become a housekeeper for a local fish peddler, Everett Lewis (Ethan Hawke), and, after a rocky start, she starts to fit in. He lets her paint flowers and birds on the walls of his small home (where she also now lives). A customer sees the paintings and, later, asks to buy some postcards that Maud has made. This eventually leads to widespread success; even Vice President Richard Nixon buys one of Maud’s painting in the 1950s. Maud and Everett eventually decide to marry, but the extra attention being paid to Maud because of her art rankles the inarticulate Everett, causing tension in the house. But despite the many challenges they face, they discover that happiness is within their reach.
