In the Roxy’s Griffin Gallery – Artist Louise Moore

 

Louise Moore

The Roxy Theatre – Griffin Gallery 

June 1 to August 31, 2017

 

Louise Moore is a local painter and writer. Her work usually focuses on children and their place in the world. She is interested in children’s feelings of aloneness and relationship to their environment. Vintage photographs and childhood memories inspire her work, particularly memories related to the culture and ritual of her childhood exposure to Catholicism in rural Québec. Louise is also inspired by the local landscape which is similar in many ways to the Portneuf area on the Saint-Lawrence, west of Québec city.

Louise Moore’s work has been shown in Montreal and Toronto and can be found in private collections. Her portrait of Tom Thomson as a child titled The Shape of Things to Come is in the permanent collection of the Tom Thomson Art Gallery. Her historical rendition of the Children’s Aid Society of the County of Grey is on display in the lobby of the Child and Family Services of Grey Bruce building in Owen Sound. Louise Moore’s work can also be seen at the Southampton Art Gallery in Southampton ON.

 

The Griffin Gallery is open to the public during box office hours.

The Miracle Worker

The Miracle Worker,
Directed by Corry Lapointe
By William Gibson
Samuel French, Inc

This classic tells the story of Annie Sullivan and her student, blind and mute Helen Keller, dramatizing the volatile relationship between the lonely teacher and her charge. Trapped in a secret, silent world, unable to communicate, Helen is violent and spoiled. Only Annie realizes that there is a mind and spirit waiting to be rescued from the dark, tortured silence. With scenes of intense physical and emotional dynamism, Annie’s success with Helen finally comes with the utterance of a single word: water.

The Door You Came In

Created and performed by

David Macfarlane and Douglas Cameron

 

A writer visits his dying mother.   He brings a book that he’d written twenty-five years ago to read to her.  It’s about her family.   But it’s also about the terrible battle – Beaumont Hamel – that sits at the heart of both Newfoundland’s and her family’s history.   So begins The Door You Came In — a two-man performance based on David Macfarlane’s acclaimed memoir, The Danger Tree.

 

The songs and the music of The Door You Came In are Douglas Cameron’s department.  A seasoned, Juno-nominated singer and performer, Cameron plays banjola, mandolin, ukulele, and accordion.  His engaging, foot-tapping performance combines popular t­unes of the day (“Pack Up Your Troubles,” and “If You Were the Only Girl in the World”) with original compositions.  Macfarlane’s narrative weaves seamlessly throughout the music.

 

The Door You Came In isn’t quite a play and it isn’t quite a concert.  It’s a musical story – sometimes funny, sometimes tragic – that tells the tales of family, and memory, and war.

Monty Python’s Spamalot

57th Annual Owen Sound Little Theatre Playbill

Directed by Kathleen Cassidy
Book & Lyrics by Eric Idle
Music by John du Prez & Eric Idle
Based on the film Monty Python and the Holy Grail
Nov. 9-11, 15-18, 21-25, 2017

England 932 A.D. A Kingdom divided. To the West the Anglo-Saxons, to the East the French. Above nothing but Celts and some people from Scotland. Lovingly ripped off from the comedy film classic Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Spamalot won the 2005 Tony for Best Musical for its tale of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table. Featuring flying cows, killer rabbits, taunting Frenchmen, and show-stopping musical numbers like Always Look on the Bright Side of Life, Spamalot raises silliness to an art form.

By Lillian Hellman
Dramatists Play Service
Feb. 1-3, 7-10, 2018

A drama set in an all-girls New England boarding school run by two women, Karen and Martha, this play shows the power words hold after a malicious young girl starts a rumor about the women that quickly turns to scandal. As the girl watches what she started grow out of control, she sticks by her story, a move that precipitates tragedy for Karen and Martha. The Children’s Hour is an incredible story of intolerance, injustice, life and loss.
