Thursday April 6, 2017, at 8 pm, $10.
The Amy Project is a musical and storied journey outlining the short but tragic life of Amy Winehouse, the late British soul, blues and jazz singer. The show is performed live, raw and acoustically (with no backing tracks) by four talented performers: Marni Shuster as the voice of Amy,  Anthony Caradonna guitar/vocals, Ian Taylor bass/vocals, and Bob DiSalle drums/vocals. Amy Winehouse was nominated for 63 World Music Awards and won 25 times for her songs and recordings before her death in 2011 at the age of only 27. The Amy Project performance will cover most of the songs from her two main albums Frank and Back to Black, plus many more of her other recordings, and some unreleased covers and collaborations. This is not a tribute act but a respectful celebration of a talented and influential artist’s short body of work.

71st Annual Sears Ontario Drama Festival

The prime purpose of the Festival is to provide a showcase for participants to demonstrate their unique drama work. It brings together students, teachers, theatre professionals, and community members to view, discuss, critique and enjoy each other's creative efforts, under the guidance of experienced adjudicators. Fostering respect, excitement, understanding and artistic development are some of its major aims as well as inspiring team work, problem solving, literacy and entrepreneurship. It also encourages current and future audiences to become positively involved with the art form.

High school drama groups must first qualify at a district area festival. Each district, organized by geographical location, has from six to thirty entries depending upon the school population of the area.  District finalists are then invited to one of six regional festivals, each running between three and six nights.  Two Outstanding Productions from each region are invited to perform at the Provincial Showcase. The Ontario Showcase will be held at the Chatham Cultural Centre from May 10 to 13, 2017.

Artist GYM: Text Analysis [Theatre Aquarius]

Text Analysis with Amos Crawley

About the Workshop

Nerves. Feeling self-conscious. Feeling like you can't be consistent in an audition room with your best work. These are universals for most actors regardless of experience level. I believe that the road to consistency and the ability to relax into the work has its roots in the early stages of text analysis that tend to be skipped over in a rush to get to performance. For a richer and more complex understanding of a scene, we need to root around a bit. This GYM will be a discussion of how to spend more time with your scene or monologue before getting it on its feet. Some work will be theoretical but please feel free to bring in a piece which you may be interested in exploring.

About the Instructor

Amos Crawley has been a professional actor since he was 4 years old. He has over 150 film, television, radio and theatre credits. He trained in New York City under CC Courtney, Richard Pinter and others and has worked across Canada, in the US and in the UK. Recent credits include Murdoch Mysteries, Covert Affairs and The Firm. He is currently playing the lead role of Jack on Treehouse TV's Trucktown and can be seen as Henderson in the feature Meza.

Theatre Aquarius’ GYM is a program developed for professional performing artists, emerging artists, theatre students, and anyone interested in pursuing a career in the performing arts. Our mission is to support artists by providing monthly mentorship and training led by skilled instructors and experienced working professionals. Every month, workshops, panels, and keynote speakers will be offered as part of our program. Our focus is to provide a creative space that is accessible and affordable to all artists in the community.

But just when he has lost everything, it seems he may have found his humanity. A play with ambitions of power, sword fighting, classic speeches, dark humour, disastrous romances, and familial love, it’s sure to have something for everyone. Whether you are a Shakespearean scholar, or looking for an exciting night of theatre and storytelling, here is King Lear!
