A new play about Port Perry
by Graeme Powell

Produced by Kyle Brough

February 16, 23 (2pm matinees)

It’s been a long time since Kathryn De Lancie has set foot in Port Perry. Her decades spent in Hollywood have been a whirlwind of leading roles and rave reviews; but even with all the fame and adoration, try as she may, Kathryn has never been able to fully forget her rural roots.
Now here she is, on location, in Port Perry, and the town is vibrating with excitement. Everywhere you go, the only thing being talked about is how Hollywood has come to town with lights and cameras and the hometown girl who followed her dreams. Will local folk catch a glimpse of the town’s prodigal daughter, or will Kathryn manage to hide from her past, the same way she has for years?
This world premier comedy from Port Perry’s own playwright, Graeme Powell, is a fresh look at what makes small towns such fantastic places to live. Mixing huge laughs with local history, familiar names, and instantly recognizable characters, Palmer Park reminds us that there is as feeling in our hearts which we all have in common... home.

GALA NIGHT: Purchase your ticket for Friday February 15th and join us for a very special evening. Arrive at 7pm to enjoy delicious desserts, finger foods and free drinks in the patron’s lounge along with live music before the show. After the show, stick around for a public adjudication from ACT-CO and experience community theatre like never before!

JOHN PRIMER & THE REAL DEAL BLUES BAND
Performance: Thursday, February 28th – 8 pm
Presented by Music by the Bay

You can’t paint the blues without the Primer

As the bandleader and lead guitarist for Muddy Waters, Willie Dixon, Magic Slim & The Teardrops, John Primer's virtuosity as a blues musician was forged by legends. John started playing on Maxwell Street, the birthplace of Chicago blues and soon became the house bandleader at the infamous Theresa's Lounge for seven years alongside Sammy Lawhorn, Junior Wells, James Cotton and others.

John Primer has undisputedly helped build the sound and style of Chicago blues as we know it today. The echoes of tradition bellowing from the birthplaces he played such as: Maxwell Street, Theresa's, Checkerboard and Rosa's Lounges, pulse from every chord in his fingers today. Having played or recorded with a who's who of blues greats including Gary Clark Jr., Derek Trucks, Johnny Winter, and Buddy Guy to name a few, John Primer's personal accolades, including Lifetime Achievement Awards, reflect his countless contributions to the history of the blues.

There are very few blues fans, critics or musicians who will deny the fact that John Primer is the real deal and a Chicago Blues Living Legend.

DYNAMITE DAMES

Book by Liz Auston and Conrad Boyce

Director: Kathy Knight
Music Director: Alissa Smith
Presented by SCS Musicals/Scugog Choral Society

PERFORMANCES:
Evenings: April 4, 5, 6, 11, 12 at 8pm
Matinees: April 6, 7, 13 at 2pm

The divas are back! Dynamite Dames is the creation of local playwrights Liz Auston and Conrad Boyce, originally performed in 2004 and one of SCS’s most-requested musicals. Get ready for 2 hours of dynamite performances as the divas and show-stopping hits just keep on coming! At its heart Dynamite Dames celebrates the spirit of women. For years Jane has lovingly dedicated herself to the wants and needs of a wonderful husband and two nearly-grown kids. A promising performer in a past-life, her only singing engagements in recent years were those during tub time when the kids were little and her dramatic repertoire rests solidly with "Good Night Moon". When a local theatre troupe shockingly earns first-dibs at staging a huge Broadway mega-hit -- with lots of great roles for women -- Jane musters the courage to squelch self-doubt and audition for the show. But Jane is not alone in wanting to shake free of a familiar role, as she is joined by a multitude of over-qualified, talented women who seem to share in a similar dream.

Dames Night – Friday April 5th at 7pm – Come as your favourite Broadway Diva (or Divo) and join us for delicious eats and light beverages before the curtain rises. After the show, stick around to meet the cast and chat with the creators of Dynamite Dames as well as members of the original 2004 cast… a fun night! (Licensed event, ages 19 years of age and over)

NEIL YOUNG TRIBUTE SHOW

Performance: Saturday Nov. 9 - 8pm

Presented by Ultimate Artists Live

Neil Young is an iconic Canadian singer-songwriter and musician who began performing in a group covering Shadows instrumentals in Canada in 1960, before moving to California in 1966, where he co-founded the band Buffalo Springfield, and later joined Crosby, Stills & Nash in 1969. He released his first album in 1968 and has since forged a successful and acclaimed solo career, spanning over 45 years and 35 studio albums, with a continuous and uncompromising exploration of musical styles. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame website describes Young as "one of rock and roll's greatest songwriters and performers". Young's music is characterized by his distinctive guitar work, deeply personal lyrics and characteristic alto or high tenor singing voice. While Young has experimented with differing music styles throughout a varied career, including electronic music, most of his best known work is either acoustic folk-rock and country rock or electric, amplified hard rock (most often in collaboration with the band Crazy Horse). Musical styles such as alternative rock and grunge also adopted elements from Young. His influence has caused some to dub him the "Godfather of Grunge".

THE BEATLES TRIBUTE SHOW

Performance: Saturday, December 14 - 8 pm

Presented by Ultimate Artists Live

The Beatles were an English rock band formed in Liverpool in 1960. With members John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr, they became widely regarded as the foremost and most influential music band. In 1963 their enormous popularity first emerged as "Beatlemania"; as the group's music grew in sophistication, led by primary songwriters Lennon and McCartney, the band were integral to pop music's evolution into an art form and to the development of the counterculture of the 1960s.
The Beatles built their reputation playing clubs in Liverpool and Hamburg. Manager Brian Epstein molded them into a professional act, and producer George Martin guided and developed their recordings, greatly expanding the group's popularity in the United Kingdom after their first hit, "Love Me Do", in late 1962. They acquired the nickname "the Fab Four" as Beatlemania grew in Britain over the next year, and by early 1964 became international stars, leading the "British Invasion" of the United States pop market.
Join Ultimate Artists Live and Liverpool 4 as they revisit those iconic years of early rock 'n' roll.
