A Busy Fall at CentreStage!

Now that The Lighthouse is about to open, CentreStage is down to 4 shows at some “stage” of production!

Remembering Wartime Through Music and Theatre is on stage at the Kings Courthouse Museum on November 7th and 8th. Call 902-678-8040 for reservations. CentreStage is doing this in partnership with the The Kings Historical Society.

Our Christmas show, The Farndale Avenue Housing Estate Townswomen’s Guild Dramatic Society’s Production of A Christmas Carol, is sure to bring a chuckle. Not sure if Charles Dickens will recognize his classic!

If anyone is looking at hosting a staff Christmas function this could be it! If interested, contact George Henry at 902-678-7947 or nandghenry@eastlink.ca.

Sex Please, We’re Sixty is in rehearsal for January.

Why not consider gift certificates for Christmas gifts (no dusting)! They can be purchased at Chisholms in Kentville, Rick’s Frame It in New Minas or at the Box Office before play performances Friday and Saturday nights.

A Murder is Announced is in the process of completing its cast. This play is based on an Agatha Christie novel featuring Miss Marple.

See you at CentreStage!

Opening this Weekend: The Lighthouse

The Lighthouse is the focus of this play and serves as a beacon not only in the lives of the close-knit family who live within it, but to the surrounding community as well. Set during the Second World War, some family members are engaged in the fighting while others, including the lighthouse keeper, who is also the mayor of the community, are trying to resurrect an industry for those who return. An enduring tale of fortitude and strength in the face of the heartaches that war can bring.

This drama is written and directed by Nova Scotian playwright Allen Hume .

Cast Members (in order of appearance): Ray Baltzer, Sherry Bishop, Tracy Churchill, Candy O'Brien, Mike Butler, Mike Holland and Wil Lang.

The Lighthouse plays on October 24, 25, 26m, November 1m & evening, November 2m.

Suitable for all ages.

Neighbours Helping Neighbours

CentreStage is pleased to be able to help out the Royal Canadian Legion, Kentville branch. During the run of The Lighthouse one half of the proceeds from the draw will go towards their new roof. Kings County Home Hardware has donated a lighthouse towards this goal. Please buy a ticket or 2 and you will be helping both these neighbours on River Street.

The winner of the leaf blower is Lynn Troop! Congratulations, just in time! Thanks to Kings County Home Hardware for their continuing support of CentreStage.

REMEMBERING: Wartime Through Music and Theatre
