The Anne Shirley Theatre Company is excited to present its lucky number 13th musical, “Sweeney Todd,” with music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim and book by Hugh Wheeler.

Sweeney Todd, a man convicted of no crime, who comes home to London to find that the life he once had is gone, stolen from him by Judge Turpin. He vows to take his revenge on the judge, and teams up with the maker of The Worst Pies in London, Mrs. Lovett, to make his plan take form. His attention soon turns from the evils of Judge Turpin to the evils of humanity.

Based on the urban legend of Sweeney Todd and the Christopher Bond book of the same name, Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street is one of Stephen Sondheim’s greatest pieces of work. It is a show about human nature and the blinding nature of vengeance.

Directed by: Dylan Billings & Lauren Bromberg
Musical Direction by: Justin Hiscox
Conducted by: Mark Hiscox

This show is rated PG13 for Mature Content and Violence.

Stories & Songs of Stompin’ Tom

Presented by Whiskey Jack
Friday, April 17, 2015 8:00pm

 

Stories and Songs of Stompin’ Tom, presented by one of Tom’s favourite back up bands, Whiskey Jack, will have the Market Hall Performing Arts Centre hopping and dancing on Friday, April 17th at 8:00 p.m. When Tom needed a band for a tour, at his private house parties or in the recording studio, he would often call Whiskey Jack to help him out. Their 25 years of working with Stompin’ Tom provides them with countless songs and stories that the Peterborough fans will relish. This is after all the town that gave Tom his “Stompin'” moniker.

Whiskey Jack has been touring and recording for 35 years and were best known for their years as regulars on the CBC’s Tommy Hunter Show. Besides Tom’s Peterborough Postman, expect to hear Bud the Spud, Tillsonburg, Sudbury Saturday Night,  Big Joe Mufferaw, The Ketchup Song and of course, be prepared to sing along on The Hockey Song.

Join us as we salute this great Canadian troubadour.

Wearable Art Show & Runway Challenge 2015

Presented by Public Energy
Saturday, April 25, 2015 8:00pm

With great music, a silent auction and extra special surprises, this fabulous evening celebrating the inventiveness and diversity of art making is a great night out. Artists and community groups create wearable works of art to strut, slide, shake and otherwise dance down the Market Hall catwalk, with stunning results. The Runway Challenge is the highlight of the night, in which six artists are invited to each make an outfit from materials sourced from six business partners. The catch is that the businesses have nothing to do with fashion or fabric!

The proceeds of this dynamic fundraiser support Public Energy’s passion for supporting risk-taking artists and electrifying the community with powerful dance, performance, and theatre.
