Derek Edwards - Baloney and Wine / February 27
Derek Edwards - Baloney and Wine is an uproarious romp through the increasingly strange quirks of our daily routines. It's relentless and brazen, a tightly woven running commentary about human nature ... “the thinking man's coffee break.” In an ever more chaotic world, Edwards remains an inimitable constant, the hilarious voice of reason. As he says, "28 years in, it's AAALLLL starting to click!"
Derek Edwards’ new 90-minute stand-up comedy show ... a richly textured and enthralling 'cut above,’ delivered with pace and authority. It sizzles - it pops; it's Baloney and Wine.

Lindsay’s Academy Theatre looking to community for support.... Please cut and paste link below into your browser.
The Academy Theatre in Lindsay is hoping a number of local fundraising productions will help keep the lights on. The theatre has faced a bleak future before and as Steve Guthrie reports, the board is hoping the community will once again get behind them.
Ron Cork, Board President
‘What we need is 50 thousand dollars in operating funding”
President and CEO of the Academy Theatre board Ron Cork went to the City of Kawartha Lakes in June for the loan of that 50 thousand dollars in operating funds. He didn’t get it.
“We’ve been very, very grateful for the significant support from the Lindsay Chest Fund. But that’s capitol support. That enabled us to completely redecorate the interior of the theatre this summer. And we are very grateful for that. But it doesn’t pay salaries, it doesn’t pay the hydro bill and all those costs attendant to the continuing operation of the theatre.”
To keep the lights on, the theatre has had to lay off staff, though some are now back at reduced hours.
“We need the continued support of the community, directly, by buying memberships, by donations, and by coming to shows at the theatre.”
The next show is a home grown variety show called ‘Seniors Got Talent”
“A great delight was the audition day when we had just put an announcement in the paper inviting people to respond, and the range of people that came out, probably reflecting their love of this theatre and their willingness to support the cause and just was so heartening. And from those, we selected a group that we thought would have a nice composition of show, we had a great rehearsal yesterday and they are keen.”
‘The Seniors Got Talent’ show is this Friday, October 2, at the Academy Theatre here in Lindsay. There are two shows, at 12 and 7 pm. The next big fundraising show is Mary Poppins, which has several days in early November. Organizers hope the community comes out to support the Academy Theatre. Steve Guthrie, CHEX Newswatch, Lindsay.
