The Vagina Monologues

The LSPU Hall

V-Day St. John's 2014 is proud to present a one-night only performance of The Vagina Monologues, benefitting the V-Day Organization, and local beneficiaries Marguerite's Place and Newfoundland Labrador Sexual Assault and Crisis Prevention Centre. This year's production is brought to you by a group of Vagina Monologue alums, feminist activists, students, theatre aficionados, and everything in between.

V-Day is a global activist movement to end violence against women and girls that raises funds and awareness through benefit productions of Playwright/Founder Eve Ensler’s award winning play The Vagina Monologues and other artistic works. Hailed by The New York Times as "funny" and "poignant" and by the Daily News as "intelligent" and "courageous," The Vagina Monologues, which was first performed off-Broadway by Ms. Ensler, dives into the mystery, humor, pain, power, wisdom, outrage and excitement buried in women’s experiences.

Oil and Water is based on the true story of Lanier Phillips, a young African American officer, who in 1942 was one of 46 men who survived the wreck of the naval ship Truxtun off St. Lawrence on the isolated south coast of Newfoundland. Taken to shore, Phillips was cared for with great generosity and humanity by the people of the community. As the story goes his skin was scrubbed raw by a local woman, Violet Pike, who was mystified as to why the black oil of the wreck would not come off. Growing up in such an isolated area, Mrs. Pike had never seen a person of colour before. As a son of the racially segregated south, Phillips was blown away by the apparent absence of racism. His encounter with the residents of St. Lawrence had a massive and lasting effect on him, spurring him on to be a well-known civil rights activist in the US. He continued to have a relationship with the people of St. Lawrence up until his death just last year.

Oil and Water is a large-scale choral work about race, community, and bicultural harmony. The play unfolds in three distinct stories: Lanier and his fellow sailors onboard the ill fated ship, as they struggle to reach shore following the Truxtun’s wreck; the people of St. Lawrence, wrestling with their own emerging problem of industrial lung didease, and their rescue and salvage during the unfolding disaster; and finally, Lanier, many years later, faced with an increasingly restless daughter, and his attempts to foster tolerance and peace within her during the Boston school race riots. Over the course of the play, these strands begin to dovetail and weave to collectively tell a story of transformation, loss, and reconciliation. Jillian Keiley’s direction sees all three stories sharing a multi-defined space dominated by seasoned wooden planks, metal washtubs, a ten-foot high steel ship’s ladder on rocking horse legs, and flying water. The cast-generated music is an a capella blend of Newfoundland tunes and the tight harmonies of the American deep south gospel tradition, devised by Toronto based composer and multi-instrumentalist Andrew Craig, and directed by internationally celebrated Newfoundland choral conductor Kellie Walsh.

Edge Island Festival of Choirs & Composers
Edge Island Festival of Choirs & Composers

Edge Island Festival of Choirs & Composers

March 17 - 22, 2014

Newfoundland and Labrador choral artists have joined to present a “festival with a twist” in the province’s capital next week. Seen by many as advanced choral practitioners, Lady Cove Women’s Choir, Newman Sound Men’s Choir, Shallaway-Newfoundland and Labrador Youth in Chorus, and Innismara Vocal Ensemble have fused their talents to create Edge Island Festival of Choirs & Composers. The innovation on traditional choral traditions will highlight composers and choirs by demonstrating their true value to the communities in which we live.

“Community engagement is an underlying objective for Edge Island Festival. We want to excite fellow citizens about the potential which arises from partnerships with choirs,” said Kellie Walsh, Edge Island Festival organizer. “When people, passion and musicianship converge, humanity reaps the benefits.” Walsh said the festival will promote, encourage, support and inspire the creation of new choral art.

What makes Edge Island Festival unique as compared to other choral festivals is the combination of young and mature musicians, celebration of original compositions focusing on the culture of our place, and community engagement. The March 17-22 festival agenda is robust and characterized by a series of workshops with children and composition students at Memorial University, a pub night at The Crow’s Nest on March 19, and exciting community conducting at public locations in the St. John’s area. The event concludes with a gala concert on March 22 at Cochrane Street United Church.

Headlining the event are guest composers:
•Stephen Chatman – Juno winner, one of Canada’s most celebrated composers, and head of composition at the University of British Columbia
•Kathleen Allan – Canadian composer currently finishing a master’s of music at Yale University
•Jason Noble – Canadian composer currently working on a doctor in musical arts in composition at McGill University’s Schulich School of Music

“On this, the most easterly point in North America, where rugged coastlines meet our bountiful ocean, Edge Island Festival will stir your souls and give you a reason to celebrate this place we call home,” said Jennifer Babstock, chorister and festival organizer.

“With the addition of the very talented Fergus O’Byrne as host of our pub night, the MUN School of Music, and so many others who have helped us bring this festival of choirs, composers and community together, participants and concert-goers can expect fun all around,” noted Jennifer Hart, artistic director of Newman Sound.

This project is being made possible by the generous assistance of the new Bruneau Centre for Excellence in Choral Music at Memorial University.

The LSPU Hall

Blue Box
Written and performed by Carmen Aguirre
A nightswimming theatre production
Directed by Brian Quirt
Production Design by Itai Erdal

Blue Box weaves together two stories: one from Carmen’s underground life in the 1980s Chilean resistance movement fighting the Pinochet dictatorship; the other of a passionate and complicated relationship with a charismatic Chicano actor, each exploring how to get what we want when no one wants us to get it. Funny, sexual, moving and deeply political, Blue Box reveals a woman committed to a cause to which she would have sacrificed her life, and committed to a man who refused to sacrifice anything for anyone

ZEKE MOORES: DISPOSE

The Rooms

Organized in partnership with The Art Gallery of Windsor
With support of Ontario Arts Council

Zeke Moores is inspired by what society throws away. His sculptures explore the transient nature of contemporary culture, valuing crumpled cardboard boxes, street barriers, milk crates and moving blankets. Moores reclaims these discarded and forgotten objects as the cultural artifacts of our time, recreating them in bronze and aluminum to highlight their beauty and potential. Moores was raised in Conception Bay South, NL. He has lived in Halifax, New Jersey, Toronto and Windsor, where he has resided for the past ten years. In 2011 Moores was a finalist for the Sobey Art Award, Canada’s pre-eminent prize for contemporary art.

John Fogerty

Mile One Centre

An evening with John Fogerty performing the songs of Creedence Clearwater Revival – 1969

As part of his coast-to-coast Canadian tour, legendary musician, John Fogerty will perform at Mile One Centre on Saturday, November 8th, 2014 at 8 p.m.

This tour celebrates 1969 – the extraordinary year in which Fogerty wrote and produced three seminal albums with Creedence Clearwater Revival: BAYOU COUNTRY, GREEN RIVER, and WILLY AND THE POOR BOYS.

Fogerty is a true American treasure, one of popular music’s all-time greatest singers, guitar players, and songwriters. As leader of CCR, Fogerty forged a distinctive, groundbreaking sound all his own, all united by his uniquely evocative lyrical perspective.

After Creedence Clearwater Revival called it quits in 1972, Fogerty embarked on what would prove to be an equally impressive solo career.

In 2013, Fogerty released Wrote a Song for Everyone, a testament to the fact that the songs written by John Fogerty over the past forty-five years continue to speak in a powerful way to generations of music makers and music lovers.

For more information on John Fogerty, visit: johnfogerty.com

TICKETS ON SALE FRIDAY, MAY 23RD AT 12 NOON Tickets are $20.00, $69.50, $89.50 and $124.50 (including tax plus service charge) and will be available at the Mile One Centre box office, by phone at (709)576-7657 and online at www.mileonecentre.com

UPDATE!

Due to overwhelming demand, a second John Fogerty show has been added at Mile One Centre on Friday, November 7 at 8 p.m.

Chris Hadfield

Mile One Centre

“Good morning, Earth!” That is how Colonel Chris Hadfield--writing on Twitter--woke up the world every day while living for five months aboard the International Space Station. Through his 21-years as an astronaut and three spaceflights, Colonel Hadfield has become a worldwide sensation, harnessing the power of social media to make outer space accessible to millions and infusing a sense of wonder into our collective consciousness not felt since humanity first walked on the Moon.

Through an audio/visual celebration of his life, Chris invites you to share the most glorious moments of his life on earth and beyond. He will sing, dance, and talk his way from his childhood to now in a way only he can do it-with a twinkle in his eyes of worlds seen and conquered. His vivid and refreshing insights will teach you how to think like an astronaut, and will change, completely, the way you view life on Earth-especially your own.

Don’t miss this evening with Chris Hadfield at Mile One Centre, Monday, November 17th at 7:30pm.

TICKETS GO ON SALE THIS FRIDAY, AUGUST 8TH AT 12 NOON

The new album was recorded in Montreal and Vancouver with Sarah's longtime collaborator/producer, Pierre Marchand as well as Bob Rock and Vincent Jones.

Sarah McLachlan is one of the most celebrated singer songwriters in entertainment with over 40 million albums sold worldwide. She is an eight-time Juno Award winner and a three-time Grammy Award winner. McLachlan's landmark fifth album, the 10x-platinum SURFACING, contained two Grammy Award-winning tracks: "Building a Mystery" and "Last Dance." In addition to her personal artistic efforts, she founded the Lilith Fair tour showcasing female musicians, which raised over $7 million for local and national charities over its 3 years and in 2002 founded her non-profit organization the Sarah McLachlan School of Music. The school provides free afterschool music education for at-risk and underserved kids who otherwise would have no access to music programming.

Denis Parker and the Modern Saints
Denis Parker and the Modern Saints

Denis Parker and the Modern Saints

The Rockhouse

Fifteen years since the release of Snowman Blues, Denis Parker returns with a new electric blues album.

The new album DENIS PARKER AND THE MODERN SAINTS is a hard rocking, “live off the floor”, electric blues album featuring new material and an electric remake of the Parker classic, “8 Ball Run”. Opening the show will be the young blues rising stars, Joseph Coffin and Nick Earle for an acoustic set.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

THE SHORT VERSION….

Who: Denis Parker and the Modern Saints ( John Clarke, Mick Davis, Elliot Dicks)

What: First CD Release of new Parker material in nearly 15 years. All electric band with John Clarke on guitar and lap steel and Novaks Mick Davis and Elliot Dicks as rhythm section.

When: Saturday, November 22, 9:00 p.m.

Where: The Rockhouse (George Street)

Cost: $10 on the door and CDs at special launch rate of $10

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

THE REST OF THE STORY…

Since retiring as the Executive Director of MusicNl, Denis has found time to record songs that have been on the back burner for some time. This project started out as a demo recording session and quickly developed into a full length album. Coincidentally, Denis’s first two albums by Panama Limited Jug Band which he recorded at London’s Abbey Road Studios for EMI/ Harvest in the late sixties have been just been remastered and released.

FAST FACTS...

The local Parker favourite, "8 Ball Run” is rerecorded on the album and was actually written about playing pool, not cocaine, as it is often (mis)understood to represent.

The cut “Shady Lane” a Leroy Carr classic, was recorded unknowingly as the band was warming up on the first evening in the studio.

The album was recorded almost entirely “live off the floor” in about 15 hours, with very few edits or overdubs.

CBC Christmas Carol

CBC Christmas Carol

Gower Street United Church

Few events hosted by CBC Radio are as eagerly anticipated or as warmly received as the readings of A Christmas Carol. The readings bring together the pleasure of hearing a good story, the joy of music of the season, and the inspired energy of those who want to make their community a better place.

Since 1990 the Christmas Carol has benefitted shelters, food banks, libraries and hospitals across Canada, and brought joy to the communities that support them. Proceeds raised range from $400 in small communities to over $8,000 at big city productions and they all add up! Across Canada an average of 20,000 people attend the Christmas Carol readings each year and together raise over 200,000 every holiday season! Congratulations on helping make a difference in your communities.

Do you like listening to stories and recitations?
Would you like to learn more about storytelling?
Are you a storyteller at heart, looking for an audience?

Anyone interested in cultivating the traditional art of Newfoundland storytelling is invited to an informal gathering of storytellers and lovers of a good story. Every kind of story or recitation can be told as long as it’s by word of mouth, rather than being read aloud. We welcome storytellers of all kinds, whether you are a professional or a first-timer. Whether you are there to listen, to tell or to gather up your courage to tell a story, we’d love to see you.

The St. John’s Storytelling Circle runs from 7:30-9:30 at the Crow's Nest Officers' Club, with opportunities for new storytellers to spin a yarn. The Crow’s Nest is located off the public stairs at the east side of the War Memorial on Duckworth Street, St. John’s, Newfoundland, Canada.

The Storytelling Circle and other Festival events are cell phone-free zones and absolutely NO recording is permitted without the PRIOR permission of the teller and the organizers. Admission: $3.

Mummers Parade
Mummers Parade

Mummers Parade

Downtown St. John's

The Mummers Parade needs you…and in disguise. The more mummers the merrier! What’s made past Parades so great was you! So shake out those long johns and borrow your Aunt’s size 42 bra. We’re calling all mummers to the Mummers Parade. You don’t see too many mummers parading the streets of St. John’s these days…until now!

The parade starts at Bishop Field Elementary. Mummers weave through the Georgestown neighbourhood and end at Bannerman Park for a Scuff ‘n Scoff with music, fruitcake, syrup and dancing.

We hope for more mummers than spectators in what might be the most exuberant, participant oriented parade in the province. Bring your music makers, disguises, hobby horses, wren sticks, and dancing feet.

At the Mummers Parade, foolish is the new normal–tea cozies look best on people’s heads and bras are best worn on the outside of your clothes. For this one day, everyone’s a mummer with the freedom to act out in fun and surprising ways.

This is an afternoon, community event and everyone is welcome. We do have some rules which must be followed:

This is a walking parade. Motorized vehicles are not allowed.
This is a non-commercial event. Advertising, promotions, and give-aways are not permitted. Mummers are experts at the art of disguise so there’s no need to reveal who you are.

Hey Rosetta!
Hey Rosetta!

Hey Rosetta!

Mile One Centre

Hey Rosetta! returns home to St. John's for their annual holiday show at Mile One Centre on Friday, Dec. 19 with special guest Basia Bulat.

Hey Rosetta! is a band that connects in an almost intangible, unexplainable way. Baker’s haunting and distinctive voice and his writing, with a lyrical sensibility that defines the band as one of the most poetic Canada exports; the rolling indie-rock precision meeting hooky pop sensibilities, off set by the delicate touch of cello, violin (and now french horn), that cuts through the most cramped club or across any vast open air festival stage they have played around the world, several times over. The band's highly anticipated new album Second Sight is due out Oct. 21 (Sonic Records/Warner).

TICKETS GO ON SALE THIS FRIDAY, OCTOBER 17th AT 12 NOON

Tickets are $40, $35 and $30 (including tax plus service fees) and go on sale this Friday, October 17th at 12 noon. Tickets available at the Mile One Centre box office, by phone at 576-7657 and online at www.mileonecentre.com.

Moores was raised in Conception Bay South, NL. He has lived in Halifax, New Jersey, Toronto and Windsor, where he has resided for the past ten years. In 2011 Moores was a finalist for the Sobey Art Award, Canada’s pre-eminent prize for contemporary art.

Steve Dawson

LSPU Hall

"Rattlesnake Cage” is the 6th solo album from Juno Award-winning artist Steve Dawson. It is unique in that it is a solo instrumental guitar album utilizing slide guitar, Weissenborn Hawaiian guitar, and acoustic 12-string. Steve’s new original compositions touch on blues, bluegrass, improvisation, and the “Amercian Primitive” school of guitar pioneered by the likes of John Fahey and Leo Kottke. Shades of Mississippi John Hurt and Reverend Gary Davis colour the music, but Steve’s voice on the guitar shines through like never before. “Rattlesnake Cage” is an album of one microphone simplicity. Steve will be accompanied by Keith Lowe on bass for this "one night only” show. This is a MUST see for guitarists and fans of acoustic guitar.

5th String Entertainment presents
TOBY KEITH
"Hammer Down Tour"

From his first No. 1 smash "Should've Been A Cowboy" to his latest release Drinks After Work, Toby Keith has been one of the most consistent self-directed hit makers of his era. 5th String Entertainment is proud to bring Toby Keith to Mile One Centre on Friday, May 9th and now on May 10th at 7:30 pm as a part of his "Hammer Down Tour".

His albums have sold more than 38 million copies, ranking him among the top-selling all-genre artists on Billboard's Top 200 Artists of the Decade, but the core of Toby's unparalleled success is his songwriting, which has powered an astounding succession of hit songs. Toby has received the honor of Songwriter/Artist of the Decade by the Nashville Songwriters Association International, he is a three-time BMI Country Songwriter/Artist of the Year and was named the American Country Awards' Artist of the Decade.

But Toby's most rewarding experiences, as exhibited in his continual devotion to them, come from giving back. Whether it's helping sick children and their families in his native Oklahoma through the Toby Keith Foundation or supporting US and Canadian Troops including USO Tours throughout the world, Keith has never lost touch with the most important things in life.

Mezzotint Workshop
Mezzotint workshop

Mezzotint Workshop

St. Michael's Printshop

Join visiting artist Kelsey Stephenson for this rare workshop in mezzotint. Mezzotint is a technique used to create rich tonal values on a printing plate. We will be working with pre-rocked plates (rocking imparts a tooth to the plate which holds ink, the more of the tooth you scrape away the less ink it will hold). Kelsey will demonstrate plate preparation, image creation and printing techniques.

This workshop is best suited to participants who have some basic etching experience, but beginners are welcome. We rarely have workshops in mezzotint, so this one is going to fill up fast!

To register for all workshops: Call 754-2931 or email mike@stmichaelsprintshop.com.

The Rooms

Carnivorous plants are colourful, lively, and sneaky at trapping and digesting insects and small organisms for the nutrients they provide. They fascinate many of us, especially kids. Gotcha! is a highly interactive, immersive exhibition focusing on the province’s diversity of curious carnivorous plants – from the pitcher plant to the bladderwort. It is aimed at kids aged five to nine but will be enjoyed by all ages.

Pink Days In Bloom are popping up all over Atlantic Canada and beyond in support of the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation - Atlantic Region. Pink Days In Bloom brings the beauty of flowers to the forefront of raising funds for innovative breast cancer research and community programs.
This unique FUNdRaiser was the brainchild of Linda Ryan, a breast cancer "Thriver" from Mount Pearl. Linda enjoys gardening and finds her time in the garden to be healing. So while on medical leave from work undergoing treatment for breast cancer, Linda focused her energy on building a gardening fundraiser. Working with Pat Puddester and the staff of Pat's Plants and Gardens, along with a group of dedicated volunteers, the first ever Pink Days In Bloom was held in 2011 in Newfoundland and Labrador. Since that first Pink Days In Bloom, featuring fun, flora, friendship and fundraising, it has grown to over 20 events across the island and is now popping up all over Atlantic Canada and beyond!

St. Michael’s Printshop Celebrates 40th Anniversary With Commissioned Prints

St. Michael's Printshop

St. Michael’s Printshop's (SMP) 40th anniversary offers an opportunity to celebrate SMP's cultural impact and influence on the artistic community over the past four decades. SMP has planned a schedule of events where the community at large can join in the celebration.

The keystone event marking this auspicious year is the commissioning of a set of commemorative prints. SMP is collaborating with artists chosen for their close affiliation with SMP to create this body of work. The roster of artists includes John Hartman (ON), Scott W. Goudie (NL), Christine Koch (NL), Tom Hammick (UK), and Veselina Tomova (NL). Both John Hartman and Scott W. Goudie’s pieces have been unveiled earlier this year – to resounding applause – and the third is soon to be released by Newfoundland’s own Christine Koch. Her piece, On the Glacier (Torngats), part of a limited edition, will be launched on Thursday, June 19th at the Christina Parker Gallery. Find out more here.

We invite everyone to join us in our celebration of community, people, and place. Looking forward, the future for SMP is bright; and will continue, as it always has, to focus on providing artists and the community a highly professional space in which to create some of this province’s finest works of art.

Opera On The Avalon
Opera On The Avalon

Opera On The Avalon

May 19 to June 22, 2014

The 2014 festival runs from May 19 to June 22 and will include a concert of Opera's Greatest hits, debuts by major artists such as Naomi Johns and Brittany Robinson, and the combination of standard and adventurous programming that OOTA is renowned for.

Opera on the Avalon is an exciting performance program for young, gifted classical singers and pianists. Led by Artistic Director Cheryl Hickman, the program offers promising young performers an opportunity to immerse themselves in an intensive program of opera and song repertoire with distinguished faculty. Each year, the festival runs for five weeks and brings in approximately 75 emerging artists and 10 guest artists.

This season's schedule includes two fully produced, costumed and staged operas with a full orchestra: Puccini's La bohème, conducted by Judith Yan (June 12-15) and Britten's A Midsummer Night's Dream, conducted by Vlad Iftinca (June 19-21). OOTA will also present Opera's Greatest Hits with Orchestra, conducted by Judith Yan (May 30). Additional performances include three aria recitals and other open air concerts.

Award winning directors Michael Cavanagh and Tom Diamond will direct the productions. In the past, a hallmark of the festival has been a wide variety of lectures and enrichment events, as well as collaborations with organizations such as Memorial University's School of Music and The Garrick theatre in Bonavista. These will continue in 2014.

Distinguished faculty for 2014 include William McGraw, Judith Yan, Brian Zeger, Mark Morash, Michael Cavanagh, Cheryl Hickman, Jenna Douglas, Joan Patenaude-Yarnell, Vlad Iftinca, composer Ben Moore and Tom Diamond.

The festival's Opera Greatest Hits with Orchestra Gala will take place on Friday, May 30, 8:00 p.m. at Cochrane Street United Church. The selection of hits to be performed by opera's rising stars include Rossini's Barber of Seville, Mozart's Die Zauberflöte, Verdi's La Traviata, Puccini's La bohème and Britten's A Midsummer Night's Dream.

The event will feature newly announced singers including Canadian baritone Cameron McPhail and soprano Ashley Kerr from the United States.

COMPANY PREMIERES FOR 2014

La bohème - Giacomo Puccini - June 12-15

Puccini's masterpiece about an aspiring poet and a fragile seamstress who experience passionate love and poignant tragedy in 19th century Paris features two superb alternating casts in a new production. One cast features Naomi Johns as Mimi opposite Anthony Kalil as Rodolfo. A recipient of the Joan Sutherland and Richard Bonynge Bel Canto prize, Johns will make her Opera on the Avalon debut in the 2014 season. This performance will mark her role debut as Mimi. Kalil, who played the role of Alfredo in last year's production of La Traviata, returns as Rodolfo.

A recent winner of the Richard Tucker Career Grant Award, Kalil made his debut at the Metropolitan Opera in 2013. 2014 George London Award Winner Cameron McPhail, who was most recently seen as Schaunard in the Canadian Opera Company's production of La bohème, returns as Marcello. He is joined by his real life wife Catherine Affleck, in her role debut as the fiery Musetta.

This opulent Opera on the Avalon production will be directed by renowned director Michael Cavanagh and will feature lighting by Robert Gauthier and costumes from Malibar. Cavanagh's direction has been praised by the Globe and Mail as "outstanding, from the intoxicated mayhem in the banquet scene to the little touches of humour that brightened and humanized the opera all evening." Joining the singers is critically acclaimed conductor Judith Yan from the Guelph Symphony Orchestra who leads the Opera on the Avalon Orchestra and Chorus.

The production of La bohème features two exciting sets of singers, including Anthony Kalil and Naomi Johns led by Maestro Judith Yan, Jeremy Blossey and 2013 returning artist Tasha Koontz. All performances feature the Opera on the Avalon Orchestra, Chorus and Children's Chorus and take place in the Holy Heart Theatre in St. John's. An additional performance of La bohéme will travel to the Garrick Theatre in Bonavista.

La bohème is on stage for three performances, Thursday, June 12 to Saturday, June 14, 2014:

Thursday, June 12 - 8:00 p.m.
Friday, June 13 - 8:00 p.m.
Saturday, June 14 - 8:00 p.m.

All performances will be held at the Holy Heart Theatre, 55 Bonaventure Avenue, St. John's, NL. The performance of La bohème at The Garrick Theatre in Bonavista will take place on Sunday, June 15.

A Midsummer Night's Dream - Benjamin Britten - June 19-21

What happens at night when the lights go out? Delicious and dark, entertaining and erotic, A Midsummer Night's Dream is an intoxicating blend of mortals, mechanicals and faeries, all thrown together in one place at one time. Britten's setting of Shakespeare's most beloved comedy has everything from gorgeous shimmering string melodies to a hilarious parody of bel-canto opera. Newfoundland's own Jacob Bradbury makes his role debut as Puck. Bradbury will be attending the Actor's Studio in New York City in the fall. Sebastian Haboczki, who was last seen as Alfredo in our 2013 production of La Traviata returns for his role debut as Lysander. Hailed by the South Florida Classical Review for her "luminous tones and lush voice", soprano Brittany Robinson makes her debut in the role of Titania with Opera on the Avalon.

This 20th century masterpiece features two casts under the baton of Vlad Iftinca from the Metropolitan Opera in a new production directed by Tom Diamond. Diamond has a long and impressive résumé that includes nine productions with the Canadian Opera Company and five with Pacific Opera Victoria. Currently Resident Director and Dramaturg at Tapestry New Opera Works, Diamond is perhaps most often recognized for his participation in both seasons of the Gemini Award-winning television series Bathroom Divas.

A Midsummer Night's Dream is on stage for three performances, Thursday, June 19 to Saturday, June 22, 2014:

Thursday, June 20 - 8:00 p.m.
Friday, June 21 - 8:00 p.m.
Saturday, June 22 - 8:00 p.m.

All performances will be held at the Holy Heart Theatre, 55 Bonaventure Avenue, St. John's, NL.

PAM HALL: HOUSEWORK

PAM HALL: HOUSEWORK

The Rooms

Newfoundland artist Pam Hall’s creative and social engagement with community is a long-standing and significant part of her artistic practice. She invites members of the non-art community to be creative collaborators – among these, a medical school, a fish processing plant and a small rural parish hall. The house – with all of its physical, emotional, cultural, social and gendered connotations – is the broad theme of this exhibition. The works displayed and those performed create the union of Hall’s solitary and collaborative practices with the active reception of the gallery audience.

Saturday, May 31 – Sunday, September 21, 2014
Location: The Rooms, St. John’s, NL

American artist Rockwell Kent (1882 – 1971) visited St. John’s and the Burin peninsula in 1910 and lived in Brigus in 1914-15.

From Stage to Stage 2: Newfoundland Recitations Now and Then….Again!
From Stage to Stage 2: Newfoundland Recitations Now and Then….Again!

From Stage to Stage 2: Newfoundland Recitations Now and Then….Again!

The LSPU Hall

The recitation has long been a staple form of amusement in Newfoundland and Labrador culture. Whether to deliver a story in a memorable fashion, delight listeners at a kitchen party, pass the time in a fishing stage, or to “say your piece” at a community concert, we have always been very adept at using the spoken word as entertainment.

In recent years some clever folks have been working to keep the form alive by putting their observations and experiences into recitation form. Some of the finest among them are Dave Paddon, Dave Penney, Hubert Furey and Harry Ingram. Whether being sentimental for days gone by, making light of everyday occurrences, paying tribute to those who have gone before, or by simply trying to make us laugh ourselves silly, these fellows are enjoying keeping the tradition going.

At this event they take the recitation out of the fishing stage to the stage of the LSPU hall, shining a spotlight on one of our most treasured traditions.

Last year’s event was a sold-out success proving that the Newfoundland recitation is firmly entrenched in the funny bone of the people of this province.

Opera On The Avalon
Opera On The Avalon

Opera On The Avalon

May 19 to June 22, 2014

The 2014 festival runs from May 19 to June 22 and will include a concert of Opera's Greatest hits, debuts by major artists such as Naomi Johns and Brittany Robinson, and the combination of standard and adventurous programming that OOTA is renowned for.

Opera on the Avalon is an exciting performance program for young, gifted classical singers and pianists. Led by Artistic Director Cheryl Hickman, the program offers promising young performers an opportunity to immerse themselves in an intensive program of opera and song repertoire with distinguished faculty. Each year, the festival runs for five weeks and brings in approximately 75 emerging artists and 10 guest artists.

This season's schedule includes two fully produced, costumed and staged operas with a full orchestra: Puccini's La bohème, conducted by Judith Yan (June 12-15) and Britten's A Midsummer Night's Dream, conducted by Vlad Iftinca (June 19-21). OOTA will also present Opera's Greatest Hits with Orchestra, conducted by Judith Yan (May 30). Additional performances include three aria recitals and other open air concerts.

Award winning directors Michael Cavanagh and Tom Diamond will direct the productions. In the past, a hallmark of the festival has been a wide variety of lectures and enrichment events, as well as collaborations with organizations such as Memorial University's School of Music and The Garrick theatre in Bonavista. These will continue in 2014.

Distinguished faculty for 2014 include William McGraw, Judith Yan, Brian Zeger, Mark Morash, Michael Cavanagh, Cheryl Hickman, Jenna Douglas, Joan Patenaude-Yarnell, Vlad Iftinca, composer Ben Moore and Tom Diamond.

The festival's Opera Greatest Hits with Orchestra Gala will take place on Friday, May 30, 8:00 p.m. at Cochrane Street United Church. The selection of hits to be performed by opera's rising stars include Rossini's Barber of Seville, Mozart's Die Zauberflöte, Verdi's La Traviata, Puccini's La bohème and Britten's A Midsummer Night's Dream.

The event will feature newly announced singers including Canadian baritone Cameron McPhail and soprano Ashley Kerr from the United States.

COMPANY PREMIERES FOR 2014

La bohème - Giacomo Puccini - June 12-15

Puccini's masterpiece about an aspiring poet and a fragile seamstress who experience passionate love and poignant tragedy in 19th century Paris features two superb alternating casts in a new production. One cast features Naomi Johns as Mimi opposite Anthony Kalil as Rodolfo. A recipient of the Joan Sutherland and Richard Bonynge Bel Canto prize, Johns will make her Opera on the Avalon debut in the 2014 season. This performance will mark her role debut as Mimi. Kalil, who played the role of Alfredo in last year's production of La Traviata, returns as Rodolfo.

A recent winner of the Richard Tucker Career Grant Award, Kalil made his debut at the Metropolitan Opera in 2013. 2014 George London Award Winner Cameron McPhail, who was most recently seen as Schaunard in the Canadian Opera Company's production of La bohème, returns as Marcello. He is joined by his real life wife Catherine Affleck, in her role debut as the fiery Musetta.

This opulent Opera on the Avalon production will be directed by renowned director Michael Cavanagh and will feature lighting by Robert Gauthier and costumes from Malibar. Cavanagh's direction has been praised by the Globe and Mail as "outstanding, from the intoxicated mayhem in the banquet scene to the little touches of humour that brightened and humanized the opera all evening." Joining the singers is critically acclaimed conductor Judith Yan from the Guelph Symphony Orchestra who leads the Opera on the Avalon Orchestra and Chorus.

The production of La bohème features two exciting sets of singers, including Anthony Kalil and Naomi Johns led by Maestro Judith Yan, Jeremy Blossey and 2013 returning artist Tasha Koontz. All performances feature the Opera on the Avalon Orchestra, Chorus and Children's Chorus and take place in the Holy Heart Theatre in St. John's. An additional performance of La bohéme will travel to the Garrick Theatre in Bonavista.

La bohème is on stage for three performances, Thursday, June 12 to Saturday, June 14, 2014:

Thursday, June 12 - 8:00 p.m.
Friday, June 13 - 8:00 p.m.
Saturday, June 14 - 8:00 p.m.

All performances will be held at the Holy Heart Theatre, 55 Bonaventure Avenue, St. John's, NL. The performance of La bohème at The Garrick Theatre in Bonavista will take place on Sunday, June 15.

A Midsummer Night's Dream - Benjamin Britten - June 19-21

What happens at night when the lights go out? Delicious and dark, entertaining and erotic, A Midsummer Night's Dream is an intoxicating blend of mortals, mechanicals and faeries, all thrown together in one place at one time. Britten's setting of Shakespeare's most beloved comedy has everything from gorgeous shimmering string melodies to a hilarious parody of bel-canto opera. Newfoundland's own Jacob Bradbury makes his role debut as Puck. Bradbury will be attending the Actor's Studio in New York City in the fall. Sebastian Haboczki, who was last seen as Alfredo in our 2013 production of La Traviata returns for his role debut as Lysander. Hailed by the South Florida Classical Review for her "luminous tones and lush voice", soprano Brittany Robinson makes her debut in the role of Titania with Opera on the Avalon.

This 20th century masterpiece features two casts under the baton of Vlad Iftinca from the Metropolitan Opera in a new production directed by Tom Diamond. Diamond has a long and impressive résumé that includes nine productions with the Canadian Opera Company and five with Pacific Opera Victoria. Currently Resident Director and Dramaturg at Tapestry New Opera Works, Diamond is perhaps most often recognized for his participation in both seasons of the Gemini Award-winning television series Bathroom Divas.

A Midsummer Night's Dream is on stage for three performances, Thursday, June 19 to Saturday, June 22, 2014:

Thursday, June 20 - 8:00 p.m.
Friday, June 21 - 8:00 p.m.
Saturday, June 22 - 8:00 p.m.

All performances will be held at the Holy Heart Theatre, 55 Bonaventure Avenue, St. John's, NL.

SPECIAL EVENTS

A Masked Ball - May 23

Opera on the Avalon celebrates the opening of its 6th season on May 23,
2014 with a gala fundraiser like none other sponsored by BMW. Opera on the Avalon's 2014 Opera Ball 2014: A Midsummer Night's Dream will be created by event designer Jonathan Connors from Elite Production and will reflect the celestial and devilish themes of one of the season's productions - the 20th century masterpiece A Midsummer Night's Dream.

Always a highlight of the City's cultural and philanthropic season, Opera Ball is an extraordinary event that brings together local and national corporate, political, civic and philanthropic leaders. The proceeds from this celebrated signature fundraising event will go to support the commission of our new opera "Ours", which will commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Battle of Beaumont Hamel.

Opera Ball 2014: A Midsummer Night's Dream begins with a heavenly pre-performance cocktail reception at the Sheraton Hotel at 6:30, created to mirror A Midsummer Night's Dream. An indulgent dinner created by acclaimed chef Rory McPherson of Oppidan follows at 7 p.m. At 9 p.m.
the curtain rises on the gala opening night performance of some of opera's most treasured hits. After the performances, guests will experience decadent cocktails, desserts and dancing in an atmosphere dramatically transformed into an exotic sanctuary full of diabolical surprises.

Manière Noire Stone Lithography
Manière Noire Stone Lithography

Manière Noire Stone Lithography

St. Michael's Printshop

Join visiting artist Stephanie de Couto Costa (Montreal) for this intermediate lithography workshop. Manière noire is a reductive lithographic technique where the image is drawn into a solid black background, revealing tones and whites by scratching and scraping away areas (similar to mezzotint) . Stephanie will walk you through the process from establishing the flat ink field, through drawing techniques and printing the image.

This workshop is best suited to those who have completed a basic lithography workshop in the past, but beginners are welcome.

Stéphanie De Couto Costa is an emerging artist born in Montreal. She received her BFA from Université du Québec à Montréal in 2010. Since then, she has participated in a number of exhibitions and residencies and actively participated in the development of the Print Media based project throughout the city of Montreal by sitting as Vice President of Graff Studio's board of directors in 2013. She is currently pursuing a MFA in Print Media at Concordia University. Her work, being at the intersection of print, collage and sculpture, explores the transformative and ritualistic properties of these three media, showcasing their potential for a poetic yet encoded communication.

To register for all workshops: Call 754-2931 or email mike@stmichaelsprintshop.com.

The Trust Walks Through the Events of the Great Fire of 1892
The Newfoundland and Labrador Historic Trust

The Trust Walks Through the Events of the Great Fire of 1892

The Newfoundland and Labrador Historic Trust

The Newfoundland and Labrador Historic Trust (“The Trust”) is accompanying the launch of the latest version of its Walk St. John’s app with a real-time history lesson. On Tuesday, July 8, the Trust will live-tweet the events of the Great Fire of 1892 from its account @NLHistoricTrust using #GreatFire1892.

The Walk St. John’s app allows users to experience the alluring streetscapes and heritage architecture of the city, which stand as a testament to the resilience and perseverance of its citizens who rebuilt time and again over the ashes of its past structures.

The app, created with the assistance of local developers TPLED Technology Inc., was initially released for iPhone and iPad in 2012. It allows users to select from several round-trip historic walking tours which guide them through the streets of St. John’s. The new version of the app includes a fifth tour tracing the path of the Great Fire of 1892 and is now also available for Android devices.

“The Great Fire dramatically altered the City of St. John’s,” said Robyn Pike, President of the Newfoundland and Labrador Historic Trust. “Using the app to explore the path of the fire and following #GreatFire1892 on July 8 will introduce you to the places and people that were forever changed by the events of that day.”

The information used to compile the fifth walking tour was collected by a student researcher employed by the Trust in 2013. A founding member of the Trust, Shane O’Dea, provided a voiceover to highlight points of interest along the Great Fire tour.

The Walk St. John’s app is available for free download for iPhone and iPad in the iTunes Store at: http://bit.ly/1n7uwoa and for Android in the Google Play Store at: http://bit.ly/1j8gDGx.

The Newfoundland Historic and Labrador Trust, established in 1966, is a membership-driven, non-profit organization dedicated to the preservation of all forms of architecture reflecting the culture and heritage of Newfoundland and Labrador.

You will long remember Dustabella Durdle’s first winter here, Peter Easton and his band of pirates, the Minister consoling his parishioners at St. Paul’s Church, the raucous mischief of the old travelling court, the heart wrenching stories of hardship and privation, and above all the strength, courage and humour of our people. And you will surely sing the Ode to Newfoundland as you bid farewell to a great and grand recreation of our cherished past. For 21 years, the Trinity Pageant has been hailed by all who see it as a moving and joyous tribute to our beloved New Founde Lande.

Harry Hibbs Returns!
Harry Hibbs Returns!

Harry Hibbs Returns!

Rising Tide Theatre

By Ben Pittman
Directed by Donna Butt
Commissioned by Rising Tide Theatre

He was known as Newfoundland's favourite son, a shy fellow who became a musical hero to the thousands of homesick Newfoundlanders who migrated to Ontario in the 60's and 70's looking for work. A replanted Bell Islander who left his hometown at 17 to provide for his family Harry was truly one of them. With his button accordion and a great band, Harry brought the audiences to their feet dancing and singing along to the old tunes that reminded them of home. Newfoundland clubs were a feature of Ontario then and Harry filled them. His popularity soared, he hosted a TV show from the Caribou Club, he sold Gold Records and brought joy to thousands. Along the way there were great highs and sad lows but always there was that smile, that wink, that celebrity who was just one of the folks. Harry died before his last tour to Newfoundland. With this show his times and his music live again. A fabulous cast led by Michael Power as Harry, with a band led by Bryan Hennessey.

Lori Doody Artist Talk

St. Michael's Printshop

Lori Doody is going to be giving a talk at SMP on Sat., July 12th in conjunction with the sound symposium!

Lori Doody was born in St. John's, Newfoundland in 1976. She graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts with a major in printmaking from Sir Wilfred Grenfell College, Corner Brook, Newfoundland in 1998. Later that year she received the Don Wright Scholarship to work at St. Michael's Printshop in St. John's. In 2001 she began a three year job as technical assistant at St. Michael's and worked with dozens of other artists during their residencies at the Printshop.

Doody has participated in artist residencies in Dublin, Ireland and in Corner Brook, Newfoundland. In 2005 she was named "Emerging Artist of the Year" by the Newfoundland and Labrador Arts Council. Her work is represented by the Emma Butler Gallery. She lives and works in St. John's.

Lori Doody's prints take as their subjects items of clothing or wildlife in the urban environment (starlings, crows). Her preferred medium is copper-plate etching, though she has worked in print techniques. The works are generally small and often involve repeated motifs and appliquéd forms cut from Japanese paper.

Terese's Creed is a tribute to the women of Newfoundland and Labrador who, through hard work, humour and indomitable spirit, survived the good times and the bad in small outports in the early 1960's. Find Terese, played by our Artistic Director, at her old wringer washer and eavesdrop as she talks to herself about her fisherman husband, her kids and a time passed but much missed. She'll make you laugh and she'll make you cry - she might even make you wring out the laundry.

February

Rising Tide Theatre

By Lisa Moore
Adapted by Lisa from her novel, February, published by Anansi
Adaptation developed in partnership with Winterset at the Summer Literary Festival
Directed by Donna Butt

February tells the story of Helen O’Mara, whose husband died on the oil rig Ocean Ranger, a disaster that claimed the lives of all 84 souls and left a province shocked and saddened. The show, set in the present, shifts back and forth in time following the path of memory and watching as Helen and her son John discover the demanding, rewarding and uplifting power of opening oneself up again to love. Beautifully written, February will touch your heart with its honesty and joy as it knits together treasured memories and new beginnings, as Helen and her son find happiness once more. Lisa is an acclaimed Author whose works have been finalists for the Scotia Bank Giller Prize, winner of the Commonwealth Prize of Canada and National Best Sellers. February recently won the CBC’s Canada Reads.

Brianna Gosse “AERA” CD Release

Fat Cat Blues Bar

Brianna Gosse “AERA” CD Release at the Fat Cat July 17th, 2014

Just barely started in her professional music career, Brianna Gosse has been piling up credentials like a house on fire. Somewhere between talent shows, industry showcases, and various high profile gigs she has managed to record a debut album that has the feel of a greatest hits package from a veteran artist that has had a career full of hits in R & B, pop and jazz. Masterfully produced by Chris Kirby, AERA sails through light summery jazz, car radio pop rock and then careens into the heavy with electric guitars set on stun and soaring vocals that leave you wide eyed and a little unsettled.

Brianna will be launching “AERA” at the Fat Cat with opening artist Bleu and backing band Chris Kirby and the Marquee on July 17th at 10:00 pm. All cd and show information can be found at briannagosse.com

The Modern Saints is the latest electric project from renowned St. John’s blues man Denis Parker. After years of acoustic performance with very few electric outbursts in between, this collaboration started as a casual jam with sideman JC Clarke, and Mick Davis and Elliot Dicks of St. John’s premier rock outfit, The Novaks. Based on a common love of guitars and raw, jam style blues, it’s a bit of a wild ride and not for the faint of heart.

Harry Hibbs Returns!
Harry Hibbs Returns!

Harry Hibbs Returns!

Rising Tide Theatre

By Ben Pittman
Directed by Donna Butt
Commissioned by Rising Tide Theatre

He was known as Newfoundland's favourite son, a shy fellow who became a musical hero to the thousands of homesick Newfoundlanders who migrated to Ontario in the 60's and 70's looking for work. A replanted Bell Islander who left his hometown at 17 to provide for his family Harry was truly one of them. With his button accordion and a great band, Harry brought the audiences to their feet dancing and singing along to the old tunes that reminded them of home. Newfoundland clubs were a feature of Ontario then and Harry filled them. His popularity soared, he hosted a TV show from the Caribou Club, he sold Gold Records and brought joy to thousands. Along the way there were great highs and sad lows but always there was that smile, that wink, that celebrity who was just one of the folks. Harry died before his last tour to Newfoundland. With this show his times and his music live again. A fabulous cast led by Michael Power as Harry, with a band led by Bryan Hennessey.

February

Rising Tide Theatre

By Lisa Moore
Adapted by Lisa from her novel, February, published by Anansi
Adaptation developed in partnership with Winterset at the Summer Literary Festival
Directed by Donna Butt

February tells the story of Helen O’Mara, whose husband died on the oil rig Ocean Ranger, a disaster that claimed the lives of all 84 souls and left a province shocked and saddened. The show, set in the present, shifts back and forth in time following the path of memory and watching as Helen and her son John discover the demanding, rewarding and uplifting power of opening oneself up again to love. Beautifully written, February will touch your heart with its honesty and joy as it knits together treasured memories and new beginnings, as Helen and her son find happiness once more. Lisa is an acclaimed Author whose works have been finalists for the Scotia Bank Giller Prize, winner of the Commonwealth Prize of Canada and National Best Sellers. February recently won the CBC’s Canada Reads.

The French Occupation
The French Occupation

The French Occupation

Rising Tide Theatre

By Paul Rowe
Directed by Donna Butt
Developed by Rising Tide Theatre in partnership with the Trinity Historical Society

This unique and powerful experience takes place in the historical Lester Garland House, next to the theatre. Based on the happenings in 1762 when Trinity surrendered to the French for 10 days. This interpretative play captures both the era itself and the colourful, often times larger than life characters that made those 10 days what they were. It’s quite a mix with merchants, Frenchmen, and servants all caught up in the rather unusual “occupation”.

Adam Martin (vocals) and Adam Hefferman (guitars, vocals) met while working a graveyard shift and started writing hip hop hooks into the wee hours of the morning. They then recruited Robbie Brett (synthesizers), Keith Harding (trap set) and Whitney Rowe (percussion), who formed an integral backbone to the band. Hear/Say has since become more than a hip hop band; they’ve become a family, whose dynamic and energetic stage performances have gained them devoted fans and rising momentum in Canada’s east coast music scene. Hear/Say were awarded a 2012 demo recording grant from MusicNL, which allowed them to record their debut EP, released in spring 2014, titled Make a Friend.

By Ed Riche
Directed by Charlie Tomlinson
Commissioned by Rising Tide Theatre

It was a one night stand. At a conference. Far away. A long time ago. What’s the risk in that? None presumably, until a few years later the two culprits and their spouses find themselves at the same Bed & Breakfast in Trinity at the same time! The Pillow Trade is a fast paced comic romp about the chances we take in love and life! Written by one of Newfoundland’s most renowned film and theatre writers, The Pillow Trade is a must see.

Terese's Creed is a tribute to the women of Newfoundland and Labrador who, through hard work, humour and indomitable spirit, survived the good times and the bad in small outports in the early 1960's. Find Terese, played by our Artistic Director, at her old wringer washer and eavesdrop as she talks to herself about her fisherman husband, her kids and a time passed but much missed. She'll make you laugh and she'll make you cry - she might even make you wring out the laundry.

The Naming Of Port Rexton
The Naming Of Port Rexton

The Naming Of Port Rexton

Rising Tide Theatre

By Grant Tilly
Directed by Keith Pike
Developed with Rising Tide Theatre
Premiere production

It’s 1910 and the town of Ship Cove, NL needs a new name. When it’s decided that the name will be derived based on the first child born to either the Randell or Rex families, a baby race ensues as each family vies to have the town named either “Port Randell” or “Port Rexton”. Based (loosely!) on true events, this new musical comedy features an all original score with soaring melodies. It’s a family play about getting in the “family way”! A full scale musical with a large cast, beautiful voices and clever mischief.

The French Occupation

The French Occupation

Rising Tide Theatre

By Paul Rowe
Directed by Donna Butt
Developed by Rising Tide Theatre in partnership with the Trinity Historical Society

This unique and powerful experience takes place in the historical Lester Garland House, next to the theatre. Based on the happenings in 1762 when Trinity surrendered to the French for 10 days. This interpretative play captures both the era itself and the colourful, often times larger than life characters that made those 10 days what they were. It’s quite a mix with merchants, Frenchmen, and servants all caught up in the rather unusual “occupation”.

Harry Hibbs Returns!
Harry Hibbs Returns!

Harry Hibbs Returns!

Rising Tide Theatre

By Ben Pittman
Directed by Donna Butt
Commissioned by Rising Tide Theatre

He was known as Newfoundland's favourite son, a shy fellow who became a musical hero to the thousands of homesick Newfoundlanders who migrated to Ontario in the 60's and 70's looking for work. A replanted Bell Islander who left his hometown at 17 to provide for his family Harry was truly one of them. With his button accordion and a great band, Harry brought the audiences to their feet dancing and singing along to the old tunes that reminded them of home. Newfoundland clubs were a feature of Ontario then and Harry filled them. His popularity soared, he hosted a TV show from the Caribou Club, he sold Gold Records and brought joy to thousands. Along the way there were great highs and sad lows but always there was that smile, that wink, that celebrity who was just one of the folks. Harry died before his last tour to Newfoundland. With this show his times and his music live again. A fabulous cast led by Michael Power as Harry, with a band led by Bryan Hennessey.

Tickets by phone at 1-888-311-9090, online here and at all Ticketpro Point of Sale Outlets in Atlantic Canada.

• Are we in the midst of a major paradigm shift in science?
• Is there an ultimate reality?
• Does consciousness conceive, govern, construct and become the physical universe?
• Is the universe becoming self aware in the human nervous system?
• Is the next stage of human development conscious evolution?
• Do we have the ability to influence the future evolution of the cosmos?
• How does our understanding of consciousness as pure potentiality enhance our capacity for intuition, creativity, conscious choice making, healing, and the awakening of dormant potentials such as non local communication and non local sensory experience?
• How does our understanding of consciousness also enhance our capacity for total well being (physical, emotional, spiritual, social, community, financial and ecological)?
Deepak will address these questions as well as practical ways to experience higher consciousness, transformation and healing.

DEEPAK CHOPRA is the author of more seventy books translated into over thirty-five languages, including twenty-one New York Times bestsellers in both the fiction and nonfiction categories. Deepak is the Founder of The Chopra Foundation, Co-Founder and Chairman of the Board of The Chopra Center for Wellbeing, and serves as an Adjunct Professor at Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University, and an Adjunct Professor at Columbia Business School, Columbia University.

Directed by Charlie Tomlinson

This story captures all the power, laughter, joy and stubborn resilience of those who populated the outports of yesteryear, back before they were “drove out” from their homes by the fishing grounds to so called growth centres. On All Souls night they all come alive again and relive the time in the golden age of the Newfoundland outport. You will get to know them all and the community they built. Al Pittman was a brilliant playwright and poet and you hear it in the power of his words. We are delighted to respond to your many requests to bring West Moon back to the Trinity stage.

Terese's Creed

Terese's Creed

Rising Tide Theatre

By Michael Cook

Terese's Creed is a tribute to the women of Newfoundland and Labrador who, through hard work, humour and indomitable spirit, survived the good times and the bad in small outports in the early 1960's. Find Terese, played by our Artistic Director, at her old wringer washer and eavesdrop as she talks to herself about her fisherman husband, her kids and a time passed but much missed. She'll make you laugh and she'll make you cry - she might even make you wring out the laundry.

The Naming Of Port Rexton
The Naming Of Port Rexton

The Naming Of Port Rexton

Rising Tide Theatre

By Grant Tilly
Directed by Keith Pike
Developed with Rising Tide Theatre
Premiere production

It’s 1910 and the town of Ship Cove, NL needs a new name. When it’s decided that the name will be derived based on the first child born to either the Randell or Rex families, a baby race ensues as each family vies to have the town named either “Port Randell” or “Port Rexton”. Based (loosely!) on true events, this new musical comedy features an all original score with soaring melodies. It’s a family play about getting in the “family way”! A full scale musical with a large cast, beautiful voices and clever mischief.

Royal St. John’s Regatta

August 6, 2014 (weather permitting)

What probably began as a few fishermen competing to see who could row his dory the fastest has grown into the annual Royal St. John’s Regatta, North America’s oldest continuing sporting event. The Regatta began officially in 1825 and has run the first Wednesday in August ever since.

Regatta Day is probably the only Municipal Holiday in Canada that is dependent on the weather. If it is raining or too windy, the holiday is simply put off until the next suitable day.

Rising Tide Theatre

By Paul Rowe
Directed by Donna Butt
Developed by Rising Tide Theatre in partnership with the Trinity Historical Society

This unique and powerful experience takes place in the historical Lester Garland House, next to the theatre. Based on the happenings in 1762 when Trinity surrendered to the French for 10 days. This interpretative play captures both the era itself and the colourful, often times larger than life characters that made those 10 days what they were. It’s quite a mix with merchants, Frenchmen, and servants all caught up in the rather unusual “occupation”.

Harry Hibbs Returns!
Harry Hibbs Returns!

Harry Hibbs Returns!

Rising Tide Theatre

By Ben Pittman
Directed by Donna Butt
Commissioned by Rising Tide Theatre

He was known as Newfoundland's favourite son, a shy fellow who became a musical hero to the thousands of homesick Newfoundlanders who migrated to Ontario in the 60's and 70's looking for work. A replanted Bell Islander who left his hometown at 17 to provide for his family Harry was truly one of them. With his button accordion and a great band, Harry brought the audiences to their feet dancing and singing along to the old tunes that reminded them of home. Newfoundland clubs were a feature of Ontario then and Harry filled them. His popularity soared, he hosted a TV show from the Caribou Club, he sold Gold Records and brought joy to thousands. Along the way there were great highs and sad lows but always there was that smile, that wink, that celebrity who was just one of the folks. Harry died before his last tour to Newfoundland. With this show his times and his music live again. A fabulous cast led by Michael Power as Harry, with a band led by Bryan Hennessey.

Directed by Charlie Tomlinson
Commissioned by Rising Tide Theatre

It was a one night stand. At a conference. Far away. A long time ago. What’s the risk in that? None presumably, until a few years later the two culprits and their spouses find themselves at the same Bed & Breakfast in Trinity at the same time! The Pillow Trade is a fast paced comic romp about the chances we take in love and life! Written by one of Newfoundland’s most renowned film and theatre writers, The Pillow Trade is a must see.

FOLK MUSIC AT HISTORIC SITES

Parks Canada & The Newfoundland and Labrador Folk Arts Society

The Newfoundland and Labrador Folk Arts Society has partnered with Parks Canada to deliver a concert series in National Historic Sites across the province in the summer of 2014. The series launched on June 26th with a sold-out acoustic concert at Signal Hill National Historic Site featuring acclaimed Newfoundland musicians Katie Baggs and Amelia Curran.

“Parks Canada is proud to partner with the Newfoundland and Labrador Folk Arts Society in bringing this exceptional performance series to our national historic sites” said Glenn Keough, Manager of National Historic Sites and Visitor Experience in eastern Newfoundland.  “At national historic sites throughout the province, visitors will have the rare opportunity to combine visits to Canada’s most treasured historic places with unique concert experiences featuring some of Newfoundland and Labrador’s finest folk performers.”

“The Newfoundland and Labrador Folk Arts Society is excited to be exploring new venues for presenting our province’s exceptional talent” said Erin Whitney, Office Manager of the Newfoundland and Labrador Folk Arts Society. “The theatre at the Signal Hill Visitor Centre is a wonderful space for stripped-down acoustic concerts that bring performers and audiences closer together for an experience that is unmatched by noisy bars or large theatres. We are looking forward to the opportunity to present across the island at national historic sites.”

The Signal Hill Concert Series continues on July 10th with The Freels, a young and energetic force on the local traditional music scene. They are currently in the process of recording their first album.  Audiences will be treated to an evening of Newfoundland stories and recitations on July 24th featuring Dave Penny, Hubert Furey, and Harry Ingram. This group of accomplished storytellers, who are leading a resurgence in traditional recitation, recently enjoyed their second sold-out appearance at the LSPU Hall. On August 14th, The St. John's Song Circle takes the stage with traditional Newfoundland acapella songs.

Tickets for these shows are available at The Signal Hill Visitor Centre and O’Brien’s Music, 248 Water Street.

Tickets are $15 (cash only) and the shows start at 7:30 in the Signal Hill Visitor Centre.

Additional concerts are planned for Castle Hill (Placentia), The Ryan Premises (Bonavista) and L’Anse aux Meadows (Northern Peninsula). Details will be available at www.nlfolk.com and www.pc.gc.ca.

The French Occupation

The French Occupation

Rising Tide Theatre

By Paul Rowe
Directed by Donna Butt
Developed by Rising Tide Theatre in partnership with the Trinity Historical Society

This unique and powerful experience takes place in the historical Lester Garland House, next to the theatre. Based on the happenings in 1762 when Trinity surrendered to the French for 10 days. This interpretative play captures both the era itself and the colourful, often times larger than life characters that made those 10 days what they were. It’s quite a mix with merchants, Frenchmen, and servants all caught up in the rather unusual “occupation”.

The New Founde Lande Trinity Pageant

Rising Tide Theatre

The anchor event of our festival, the pageant takes you on a journey through the town of Trinity. The whole summer company will entertain you and enthral you every step of the way. You will meet an array of colourful characters as our past unfolds in story and song. You will long remember Dustabella Durdle’s first winter here, Peter Easton and his band of pirates, the Minister consoling his parishioners at St. Paul’s Church, the raucous mischief of the old travelling court, the heart wrenching stories of hardship and privation, and above all the strength, courage and humour of our people. And you will surely sing the Ode to Newfoundland as you bid farewell to a great and grand recreation of our cherished past. For 21 years, the Trinity Pageant has been hailed by all who see it as a moving and joyous tribute to our beloved New Founde Lande.

Showtime is 2pm on Wednesdays and Saturdays beginning outside the Trinity Visitor Centre. Please prepare for the possibility of inclement weather. As it is an outside walkabout, proper footwear is suggested, and we cannot guarantee that walkers and wheelchairs will always have an unobstructed view.

Tuckamore Festival

Chamber Music In Newfoundland

Welcome to the 14th season of the Tuckamore Festival! Since 2001, our goal has been to offer two weeks of inspired, powerful, and diverse concerts as well as numerous free-of-charge open rehearsals, masterclasses, lunchtime performances and children’s concerts.

Each year we try to introduce wonderful artists new to St John’s and offer something a bit different in terms of programming from previous years. In addition to our highly respected Young Artist Program for emerging string players and pianists, we’ve recently introduced a Young Composers Program under the mentorship of award-winning composer Andrew Staniland.

We’ve also been venturing downtown to the Rocket Room on Water Street for some fabulous late-night music. This year we’ re delighted to offer even more events at the Rocket – a cabaret concert with Patricia O’Callaghan and Robert Kortgaard and a jazz night with trumpeter Pat Boyle and Bill Brennan. New this season and also at the Rocket, are a couple of morning Musical Chat and Coffee sessions with entertaining and illuminating talks about some of the music on our evening series.

If hearing chamber music in the most intimate settings surrounded by stunning scenery if for you, then check out our concerts in Admiral’s Cove and Brigus. This year, we’ll also be venturing to English Harbour and Clarenville for a mini pre-Festival tour on August 2 and 3.

Of course the core of the festival each season is its outstanding evening concert series and this year is no exception. With guest artists like Jon Kimura Parker, the Cecilia String Quartet, Aaron Berofsky, Simon Fryer, Dov Scheindlin, Duo Concertante, and Vernon Regehr we know it’s going to be a wonderful, magical two weeks! Please join us!

Harry Hibbs Returns!
Harry Hibbs Returns!

Harry Hibbs Returns!

Rising Tide Theatre

By Ben Pittman
Directed by Donna Butt
Commissioned by Rising Tide Theatre

He was known as Newfoundland's favourite son, a shy fellow who became a musical hero to the thousands of homesick Newfoundlanders who migrated to Ontario in the 60's and 70's looking for work. A replanted Bell Islander who left his hometown at 17 to provide for his family Harry was truly one of them. With his button accordion and a great band, Harry brought the audiences to their feet dancing and singing along to the old tunes that reminded them of home. Newfoundland clubs were a feature of Ontario then and Harry filled them. His popularity soared, he hosted a TV show from the Caribou Club, he sold Gold Records and brought joy to thousands. Along the way there were great highs and sad lows but always there was that smile, that wink, that celebrity who was just one of the folks. Harry died before his last tour to Newfoundland. With this show his times and his music live again. A fabulous cast led by Michael Power as Harry, with a band led by Bryan Hennessey.

West Moon
West Moon

West Moon

Rising Tide Theatre

By Al Pittman, published by Breakwater Books
Directed by Charlie Tomlinson

This story captures all the power, laughter, joy and stubborn resilience of those who populated the outports of yesteryear, back before they were “drove out” from their homes by the fishing grounds to so called growth centres. On All Souls night they all come alive again and relive the time in the golden age of the Newfoundland outport. You will get to know them all and the community they built. Al Pittman was a brilliant playwright and poet and you hear it in the power of his words. We are delighted to respond to your many requests to bring West Moon back to the Trinity stage.

Harry Hibbs Returns!
Harry Hibbs Returns!

Harry Hibbs Returns!

Rising Tide Theatre

By Ben Pittman
Directed by Donna Butt
Commissioned by Rising Tide Theatre

He was known as Newfoundland's favourite son, a shy fellow who became a musical hero to the thousands of homesick Newfoundlanders who migrated to Ontario in the 60's and 70's looking for work. A replanted Bell Islander who left his hometown at 17 to provide for his family Harry was truly one of them. With his button accordion and a great band, Harry brought the audiences to their feet dancing and singing along to the old tunes that reminded them of home. Newfoundland clubs were a feature of Ontario then and Harry filled them. His popularity soared, he hosted a TV show from the Caribou Club, he sold Gold Records and brought joy to thousands. Along the way there were great highs and sad lows but always there was that smile, that wink, that celebrity who was just one of the folks. Harry died before his last tour to Newfoundland. With this show his times and his music live again. A fabulous cast led by Michael Power as Harry, with a band led by Bryan Hennessey.

It was a one night stand. At a conference. Far away. A long time ago. What’s the risk in that? None presumably, until a few years later the two culprits and their spouses find themselves at the same Bed & Breakfast in Trinity at the same time! The Pillow Trade is a fast paced comic romp about the chances we take in love and life! Written by one of Newfoundland’s most renowned film and theatre writers, The Pillow Trade is a must see.

The French Occupation
The French Occupation

The French Occupation

Rising Tide Theatre

By Paul Rowe
Directed by Donna Butt
Developed by Rising Tide Theatre in partnership with the Trinity Historical Society

This unique and powerful experience takes place in the historical Lester Garland House, next to the theatre. Based on the happenings in 1762 when Trinity surrendered to the French for 10 days. This interpretative play captures both the era itself and the colourful, often times larger than life characters that made those 10 days what they were. It’s quite a mix with merchants, Frenchmen, and servants all caught up in the rather unusual “occupation”.

Terese's Creed is a tribute to the women of Newfoundland and Labrador who, through hard work, humour and indomitable spirit, survived the good times and the bad in small outports in the early 1960's. Find Terese, played by our Artistic Director, at her old wringer washer and eavesdrop as she talks to herself about her fisherman husband, her kids and a time passed but much missed. She'll make you laugh and she'll make you cry - she might even make you wring out the laundry.

Farish received a diploma from the Montreal Museum School of Fine Arts and her BFA from Concordia University. She went on to study with a master printer in the French tradition of printmaking. Farish has shown extensively in Europe, Canada, the United States, Mexico and Asia with over forty solo exhibitions and her work can be seen in many collections.

The New Founde Lande Trinity Pageant

Rising Tide Theatre

The anchor event of our festival, the pageant takes you on a journey through the town of Trinity. The whole summer company will entertain you and enthral you every step of the way. You will meet an array of colourful characters as our past unfolds in story and song. You will long remember Dustabella Durdle’s first winter here, Peter Easton and his band of pirates, the Minister consoling his parishioners at St. Paul’s Church, the raucous mischief of the old travelling court, the heart wrenching stories of hardship and privation, and above all the strength, courage and humour of our people. And you will surely sing the Ode to Newfoundland as you bid farewell to a great and grand recreation of our cherished past. For 21 years, the Trinity Pageant has been hailed by all who see it as a moving and joyous tribute to our beloved New Founde Lande.

Showtime is 2pm on Wednesdays and Saturdays beginning outside the Trinity Visitor Centre. Please prepare for the possibility of inclement weather.

West Moon

Rising Tide Theatre

By Al Pittman, published by Breakwater Books
Directed by Charlie Tomlinson

This story captures all the power, laughter, joy and stubborn resilience of those who populated the outports of yesteryear, back before they were “drove out” from their homes by the fishing grounds to so called growth centres. On All Souls night they all come alive again and relive the time in the golden age of the Newfoundland outport. You will get to know them all and the community they built. Al Pittman was a brilliant playwright and poet and you hear it in the power of his words. We are delighted to respond to your many requests to bring West Moon back to the Trinity stage.

It was a one night stand. At a conference. Far away. A long time ago. What’s the risk in that? None presumably, until a few years later the two culprits and their spouses find themselves at the same Bed & Breakfast in Trinity at the same time! The Pillow Trade is a fast paced comic romp about the chances we take in love and life! Written by one of Newfoundland’s most renowned film and theatre writers, The Pillow Trade is a must see.

The French Occupation
The French Occupation

The French Occupation

Rising Tide Theatre

By Paul Rowe
Directed by Donna Butt
Developed by Rising Tide Theatre in partnership with the Trinity Historical Society

This unique and powerful experience takes place in the historical Lester Garland House, next to the theatre. Based on the happenings in 1762 when Trinity surrendered to the French for 10 days. This interpretative play captures both the era itself and the colourful, often times larger than life characters that made those 10 days what they were. It’s quite a mix with merchants, Frenchmen, and servants all caught up in the rather unusual “occupation”.

The house – with all of its physical, emotional, cultural, social and gendered connotations – is the broad theme of this exhibition. The works displayed and those performed create the union of Hall’s solitary and collaborative practices with the active reception of the gallery audience.

Kent Centennial 2014 Events - A Commemoration of Rockwell Kent in Newfoundland
Kent Centennial 2014 Events - A Commemoration of Rockwell Kent in Newfoundland

Kent Centennial 2014 Events - A Commemoration of Rockwell Kent in Newfoundland

The Rooms

2014 will mark one hundred years of “artists in residence” at Landfall, starting with the American artist, Rockwell Kent. The Landfall Trust, in partnership with The Rooms Provincial Art Gallery is planning an exciting slate of events and activities to commemorate his time here. Please join us in the summer of 2014 to share in the festivities!

Pointed North: Rockwell Kent in Newfoundland and Labrador Exhibition
Saturday, May 31 – Sunday, September 21, 2014
Location: The Rooms, St. John’s, NL

American artist Rockwell Kent (1882 – 1971) visited St. John’s and the Burin peninsula in 1910 and lived in Brigus in 1914-15. He returned to St. John’s in 1968, at the invitation of then Premier Joey Smallwood. Curated by Caroline Stone, this exhibition will have two sections. The first will be made up of prints, drawings and paintings, many with a connection to Kent’s time in Newfoundland. The second section of the exhibition will be made up of anything to do with Rockwell Kent that has a Newfoundland and Labrador provenance.

Documentary Screenings: Rockwell Kent, with Frederick Lewis
Sunday, June 8, 2014
1:00 – 5:00 PM
Location: The Rooms, St. John’s, NL.

Frederick Lewis, the creator of this powerful documentary, will be in attendance. The Washington Post called this two-part 170 minute labor of love, "a sweeping, detailed, visually rich portrait of a man who emerges as a complex, compelling and finally contradictory force of nature, a charismatic reflection of the eras in which he lived, from the radical political culture of the 1930s to the movement toward abstraction and expressionism that left his representational paintings behind." Shot on location in Alaska, Newfoundland, Ireland, Denmark, Russia, Greenland, Argentina and Chile (Cape Horn). Auditorium seating is limited to 120. Doors will open at 12:30 PM.
