Sixteen-year-old Jacob Mercer stands on a railway platform in Bay Roberts, Newfoundland in 1924. Jacob has had a violent fight with his father, Esau, and has decided to take the next train out of town. Six years earlier, Esau Mercer returned from the Great War a damaged man, never able to speak of his time in the trenches. When Esau arrives at the station in an attempt to stop Jacob from leaving, the boy seizes the opportunity to help his father heal himself. Jacob agrees to stay – if his father will speak about the War. Neither of them are prepared for what happens when Esau finally gives his devastating and unsparing account of what happened on the day that the Newfoundland Regiment was wiped out. This quintessential Canadian Post-war drama comes from one of Canada's most celebrated playwrights.

THE LIVERPOOL 4

Performance: Saturday, October 27 - 8pm

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.

Ultimate Artists Live is presenting The British Invasion - tributes to 3 of the greatest rock bands to come out of Great Britain. Shows include The Liverpool 4 (The Beatles) on June 9th, Floydium (Pink Floyd) on June 23rd, and ZED (Led Zeppelin) on November 10th.

THE LED ZEPPELIN SHOW - FEATURING ZED

Performance: Saturday November 10 - 8pm

Presented by Ultimate Artists Live

Led Zeppelin were an English rock band formed in London in 1968. The band's heavy, guitar-driven sound, rooted in blues and psychedelia on their early albums, has earned them recognition as one of the progenitors of heavy metal, though their unique style drew from a wide variety of influences, including folk music.

Although the group was initially unpopular with critics, they achieved significant commercial success with albums such as Led Zeppelin(1969), Led Zeppelin II(1969), Led Zeppelin III(1970), their untitled fourth album (1971), Houses of the Holy(1973), and Physical Graffiti(1975). Their fourth album, which features the track "Stairway to Heaven", is among the most popular and influential works in rock music, and it helped to secure the group's popularity.They are one of the best-selling music artists in the history of audio recording; various sources estimate the group's record sales at close to 300 million units worldwide.

The musicians in ZED provide the closest tribute to Led Zeppelin with their attention to detail.

Directed by Helen Coughlin
Produced by Kyle Brough

Performance:
February 14, 15, 16, 21, 22, 23 (8pm)
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.

Adults: $24
Students (18 and under): $12 with valid student ID

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

Producers: Liz Auston and Joanna Thornton
Director: Kathy Knight
Music Director: Alissa Smith
Choreographer:
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 jkeep 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)
