Wingfield's Folly / August 29 ‒ 30
Tickets are $37.00. Member discounts in effect. Public sale starts April 18.
by Dan Needles
starring Rod Beattie
directed by Douglas Beattie
August 29 at 7:30pm and August 30 at 2:30pm.
Third in the popular series of one-man stage plays which has delighted audiences across Canada for over 25 years. In this episode, stockbroker-turned-farmer Walt Wingfield pinpoints the source of his economic woes and faces his most profound crisis to date. Once again the residents of R.R. #1 Larkspur grab a good seat and take bets on what Walt will lose first - his heart or his mind.
Rod/Walt is a crowd pleaser; to use an abysmal cliche he is a ray of sunshine...just as engaging the third time round. - Monday Magazine
With gestures and a grab bag of different voices any impressionist would kill for, the actor is able to conjure up imaginary characters with a few deft strokes - Victoria Times Colonist
A sure-fire hit...equally good, amusing and excellent theatre...Rod Beattie is flawless in his portrayal of Walt and all the other people of Persepone Township - The Oak Bay Star
Legends on Tour / October 4
Class of '59 / October 24
Tickets are $45.00 - October 24 at 8pm
CLASS OF ’59
GET READY TO ROCK with BUDDY HOLLY, ELVIS, JERRY LEE LEWIS and the “CLASS OF ‘59”… The greatest all-star rock’n’roll jam-session ever is coming to town.
Imagine Buddy Holly on guitar, Jerry Lee Lewis on piano, the Big Bopper on string bass together with Young Elvis, Bill Haley, The Everly Brothers and Brenda Lee dropping by to participate. Experience the early years of Rock’n’Roll… when the music was raw, pure and simple and played the way it’s supposed to be played. More Info at www.Classof59.info .
Million Dollar Quartet and Buddy Holly Story headliners provide rock’n’roll excellence...
Lance Lipinsky from the world-famous “Million Dollar Quartet” and Jeff Giles from the internationally acclaimed “Buddy Holly Story”, have joined forces to present a not to be missed “Oldies” concert experience... The Class of ‘59.
Being two of the very best tribute artists in the world, they have to accept being able to swallow large doses of their egos. When they take on the persona of well-known celebrities, they must fade into the background in order to make their character believable on both a visual and vocal level.
But every now and then there's a tribute performer that's so good people can't help but notice the person behind the persona - lurking somewhere beyond the make-up, costumes and over-the-top hair styles.
Twenty seven-year old Lance Lipinsky is one of those lurkers... and for him to come out from behind his character is really saying something because Lipinsky takes on one of the wilder entertainers out there - as the piano Rock’n’Roll pioneer and wild man Jerry Lee Lewis.
With so many tribute artists, audience members leave the theatre saying things like "he really sounded like so and so" or "he was off on his take of so and so." With Lipinsky, everyone in the audience is wondering and wanting to know "Jerry Lee Lewis or not... who is that guy?"
And Giles is no slouch either, as he has performed the starring role in no less than7 different productions of “The Buddy Holly Story” including the prestigious Charlottetown Festival. As Holly, giles will be performing all of Buddy's huge hits including… “Maybe Baby”, “That'll Be The Day”, “Peggy Sue”, “Everyday” and “Oh Boy.”
Buddy Holly and The Killer… will be playing guitar and piano, respectively, in the all-star Legends Band including “Big Bopper” on string bass plus guest performers… Young Elvis, Bill Haley, Brenda Lee and the Everly Brothers. Don’t miss Class of ’59… it’s a fabulous “oldies” rock’n’roll show on tour in western Canada during the fall of 2015.
