Fun, Folk, Shantys and Shenanigans!

Join us in our Upper Performance Centre on Wednesday August 14th, 2024, for an incredible evening of great music, laughs, snacks and more as CentreStage Theatre presents the music of Maurice LeClair & Ray Balcom, followed by a music performance by celebrated performer Chris Ricketts!


Ray Balcom and Maurice LeClair sing Shanties, Folk songs, Songs of the Sea and much more.  They have sung all over Nova Scotia including the Fundy Shanty Festival in New Brunswick last summer. Maurice and Ray are coming to us from Annapolis Royal and they’re delighted to play in our Upper Performance Centre for the first time ever!

Their group is called LIVIN THE DREAM, because that is what they are doing!

Internationally acclaimed 21st century shanty singer, Chris Ricketts returns with an album of shanties and self penned songs called ‘Songs In The Key Of Sea ‘. Widely loved, this album re-booted Chris’ love of performing and writing. As well as performing within the UK, Chris has appeared at top folk and shanty festivals in Germany, Poland, Canada, and France.

Chris mastered his craft working cruise ships after being a semi-finalist in the BBC Radio 2 young folk awards. Now a touring musician and teacher in secondary schools Chris’ passion for performing allows him to travel the world with his self-penned songs and versions of traditional shanties.

Quick-witted comedy, a unique delivery of sea songs and clever songwriting, this live show will not fail to satisfy an audience.

We hope to see you on August 14th, at the ‘Little Theatre with the Big Heart.’
