Happy Days - A New Musical

Written by Garry Marshall, Music by Paul Williams

Goodbye gray skies, hello blue! Happy days are here again with Richie, Potsie, Ralph Malph and the unforgettable "king of cool" Arthur "The Fonz" Fonzarelli. Based on the hit Paramount Pictures television series, Happy Days, A New Musical reintroduces one of America's best loved families, the Cunninghams -- yes, Howard, Marion and Joanie are here too -- to a whole new generation of kids and parents.

The famed drive-in malt shop and number one hangout, Arnold's, is in danger of demolition. So the gang teams up to save it with a dance contest and a TV-worthy wrestling match. Even Pinky Tuscadero, Fonzie's childhood sweetheart, returns to help and -- lo and behold! -- they rekindle their old flame.

Happy Days, A New Musical, with amazing music from Oscar-winner Paul Williams and a book by the TV series original creator Garry Marshall, is perfect for the Lindsay Little Theatre to perform. Return to the days of 1959 Milwaukee complete with varsity sweaters, hula hoops and jukebox sock-hoppin' fun. This perfectly family friendly musical will have you rockin' and rollin' all week long!

The 2015 ROAD SHOW RETURNS TO ONTARIO
HITTING 12 CITIES IN 13 DAYS
Hosted by Canadian Sweetheart Debra DiGiovanni and featuring some of the funniest and brightest comics in comedy – Alonzo Bodden, Mark Forward and Gina Yashere
Montreal, February 9, 2015 – Once again, Just For Laughs brings more of its funniest alumni to a town near you with the Just For Laughs Road Show! Now in its 12th year touring across Ontario every spring, the Just For Laughs Road Show features four of the best stand-ups straight from the world’s largest and most prestigious comedy Festival including Canadian sweetheart and Match Game persona Debra DiGiovanni, Last Comic Standing winner Alonzo Bodden, Canadian Comedy Award winner Mark Forward and British star Gina Yashere.
Debra DiGiovanni, a Toronto native and recent Los Angeles transplant, is currently a featured panelist on The Comedy Network’s Match Game and a frequent guest on CBC’s wildly popular radio program The Debaters, the latter of which earned her a Canadian Comedy Award nomination for writing on the show. This Just For Laughs veteran was a regular contributor to MuchMusic’s Video On Trial series; a finalist on NBC’s Last Comic Standing; has two Comedy Now! specials; released her first American special, Single Awkward Female, on Showtime in the last year and recently made her acting debut in the independent comedy Unlucky. Did we mention that she is not only a Gemini Award winner, but also three-time Canadian Comedy Award winner for Best Female Comic?!
Alonzo Bodden is an international headliner who has performed worldwide including Just For Laughs in Montreal; Just For Laughs Sydney; Ireland’s Kilkenny Comedy fest; Brighton Beach in the UK; and he’s entertained the troops everywhere from Iraq to Greenland. Introduced to America on NBCʼs Last Comic Standing, Alonzo was runner up on Season 2 and came back to win it all on Last Comic Standing Season 3, “The Best of the Best.” Since then he's done a one-hour comedy special, Who's Paying Attention? that premiered on Showtime, was a regular on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and a favorite guest on Adam Corollaʼs radio show and podcast. While his movie career has consisted mainly of playing security guards, he’s protected the best: Steve Martin and Queen Latifah in Bringing Down The House and Leslie Nielsen in Scary Movie 4. He’s hosted 101 Cars You Must Drive on Speed Channel and America’s Worst Driver on The Travel Channel, along with Inside the Vault for ITV.
Mark Forward is a winner! In 2006, he made his first appearance at the prestigious Just For Laughs Festival, where he won the Homegrown Comic Competition. He also won the Canadian Comedy Award for Best New Comer. In 2008, Mark won his second Canadian Comedy Award for Best Writing on a Series (The Jon Dore Television Show) and in 2012 he won his third Canadian Comedy Award, this time for Best Taped Live Performance (The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson). Mark can currently be seen as Mr. Leung on CBC’s Mr. D and is also a staff writer on the show. In 2014, Mark was featured for a 2nd time on the The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson.
Gina Yashere has been a stand-up and TV star in the UK for several years, with appearances on iconic TV shows such as Live At The Apollo, Chelsea Lately, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Live at Gotham to name but a few. She broke onto the American comedy scene with her appearances on Last Comic Standing, where she made it to the final 10. She is also known in the US for her regular, hilarious appearances on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, as Madame Yashere - The Surly Psychic.

Marty Stuart & His Fabulous Superlatives

May 7 @ 7:00PM

Please visit www.kawarthatickets.ca for the presale tickets.

 

Tickets are $60.95

Marty Stuart is a five time GRAMMY-winner, platinum recording artist, Grand Ole Opry star, country music archivist, Southern culture historian, photographer, musician, songwriter, TV show host, charismatic force of nature, and country music fan. His latest musical oeuvre is ably supported by the coolest cats in Nashville - his backing band, The Fabulous Superlatives: guitarist Kenny Vaughan, drummer Harry Stinson, and bassist Paul Martin.

Since starting out singing gospel as a child, Marty Stuart has shown a showman’s zest for every conceivable flavor of country music. Not to mention, a missionary’s zeal for bringing the importance of the music and its themes home to longtime fans and newcomers alike. Musicologist Peter North cites, “Marty Stuart seems wrapped in his destiny at this point in time. Not only as country music’s most notable ambassador/caretaker, but as its main archetypical crusader. He has without question evolved into one of the most important roots musicians and visionaries in America.”

Marty’s newest chapter is Ghost Train (The Studio B Sessions) which includes such unmitigated country staples as the male-female duet "I Run to You," written and sung with Connie Smith), the chugging, bluesy—and spooky— fellow Mississippian Jimmie Rodgers-like train song "Ghost Train Four-Oh-Ten," and such steel guitar driven, hardcore heartbreak ballads such as "A World Without You," (another co-write with Connie) and "Drifting Apart."

As the Ghost Train project unfolded, Stuart notes, “I referred to the original blueprint of country music for the subject matter…those were my standards. I wrote about love, marriage, heartaches, trains, home, work (or the lack of), vagrancy, the law, jail, rivers, death, sin, redemption, drinking and goodhearted women. Those words and melodies are wrapped around rounders, ghosts, lovesick fools, the tortured soul of a grim executioner, a wino, a preacher, the working man, rocking and rolling country boys, weary tearstained travelers, gamblers, thugs, thieves, and the likes of me. The stories are staged from locations that vary from San Francisco to Texas, Heaven, Hell, a graveyard, hanging gallows, Nashville and on to Mississippi where all of those places somehow slowly morph into railroad tracks that disappear into the middle of nowhere. Now that’s my kind of story and a pretty honest reflection of the last few years of my life. It’s pure language from the Old Testament side of country music. And according to the newspaper I read this morning, all of the above mentioned are alive and well…still valid.”Marty Stuart is a five time GRAMMY-winner, platinum recording artist, Grand Ole Opry star, country music archivist, Southern culture historian, photographer, musician, songwriter, TV show host, charismatic force of nature, and country music fan.

Retro 50’s television comes alive at The Academy Theatre

 

Tickets are $40 plus taxes and service charges.  “Honeymooners, the Golden Age of Television” revisits the era that made Jackie Gleason and Art Carney stars of television. Told through the lens of the popular series, the Honeymooners, this production looks at their lasting friendship and the work they accomplished together.

The curmudgeonly Ralph Cramden and lovable Ed Norton bring out the laughs as the show is seen being shot in the New York television studio. Alternating between the studio and Jackie’s favourite bar, this funny yet touching script is written by Sharyl Hudson and directed by Peter Muir with musical direction by Bill Sewers. Starring Alex Ryker as Jackie Gleason and Dan Anderson as Art Carney, a cast of characters brings the story to life.

"There was little rehearsal. Gleason liked it that way...and there were no second takes. The show went out "live". The sets were painted cardboard (with the only set of apartment doors that opened "outwards" instead of "inwards). Nobody imagined this short run series of half-hour episodes would rerun continuously everywhere in the world on television for the next 50 years...."

Come see Jackie and Art set the early television world on fire with comedy, music and song with this unique production.

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

Class of '59

October 24 @ 8:00PM

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.LegendsofRocknRoll.com

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.
