The Door You Came In

Thursday February 23, 2017 – 8:00 PM

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.

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.

damned be this transmigration

Presented by Public Energy
Friday March 3, 2017 – 12:30 PM
Friday March 3, 2017 – 8:00 PM
Saturday March 4, 2017 – 8:00 PM

Public Energy is proud to present the full-length premiere of a play featuring music created by some of the city’s most talented theatre artists. Writer/actor Kate Story’s damned be this transmigration has already had a successful run in workshop form at the intimate Theatre On King. Now ready for its prime-time debut, the work will be seen with a new set – and dance numbers – created especially for the expansive Market Hall stage.

Based on beloved characters created by New Yorker Don Marquis, damned be this transmigration is a dancing, singing roller coaster ride of a play with text from Marquis’s famous newspaper column and music from the swinging twenties, alongside original compositions. We follow Marquis, played by Brad Brackenridge, banging out his column on a vintage typewriter, while his literary creations – Archy the literary cockroach, played by Ryan Kerr, and a morally-careless alley cat named Mehitabel, played by Kate Story – alternately distract him from his work and give his life purpose.

It’s a hot shot of entertainment amidst Marquis’s pointed social commentary – relevant to this day and age – and we get a glimpse into the raucous and often tragic life of Marquis himself. This is New York on the cusp of Dorothy Parker and James Thurber, arguably a New York at its literary zenith.

bare: a pop opera follows the story of a group of senior students as they navigate their final year at their Catholic high school, St Cecilia’s. Like typical teenagers they experiment and party their way through school, all the while trying to overcome the pressures of their parents, their church, and their peers. Coming of age brings with it many obstacles, and the students will have to decide on what—or who—they will place their faith in.

Against The Wind – Canada’s Bob Seger Experience

Presented by Rock-N Entertainment

Friday March 31, 2017 – 8:00 PM

The launch of ATW in 2015 marks 35 years since Bob Seger’s, award-winning album and hit single, “Against The Wind ” was destined to become etched into the public’s minds and hearts.

ATW sets the stage for memories and new experiences. This band is dedicated to honouring Bob Seger, paying homage to the undeniable motto – “Rock and Roll Never Forgets”. ATW’s song-list includes selections from Seger albums that are obvious mega hits throughout the 60, 70’s and beyond.

“You just can’t shake a memory that feels so good, so right” – that’s why booking ATW makes total sense in a time when, “the feel good”, factor is what the audiences are yearning to feel and re-experience, a guaranteed recipe for success.

Concert, corporate and private events are prime venues for ATW and what they bring to audiences.

Bring this power-house to today, to your audience now!

“It’s Your World”, “In Your Time”, it’s that simple and extraordinary – It’s ATW.

Jethro Tull’s Martin Barre Band

Presented by Market Hall Performing Arts Centre

Tuesday April 11, 2017 – 8:00 PM

For the past five years Martin has toured the world with his own band to play the “classic” music from the Jethro Tull catalogue, and also many new tracks written by Martin from his albums AWAY WITH WORDS and ORDER OF PLAY, plus his latest album, BACK TO STEEL.

For 43 years Martin Barre was the renowned guitarist of Jethro Tull, and his role in the band cannot be overestimated. Bruce Eder wrote on allmusic.com, “His playing has provided much of the energy that allows the band to soar on record and in concert.” His unique sound and style contributed enormously to their success, which includes several chart topping albums, eleven gold and five platinum albums, a Grammy Award for CREST OF A KNAVE in 1988, and album sales exceeding 60 million units. Tull continues to be played worldwide, representing an important part of classic rock history.

Martin’s guitar playing has earned him respect and recognition; he’s been voted among the best ever in the USA and in the UK for his playing on “Aqualung.” Beyond numerous Jethro Tull albums, Martin has plied those award-winning chops with many other distinguished artists, including Paul McCartney, Phil Collins, Gary Moore, Joe Bonamassa and Chris Thompson. He has shared a stage with such legends as Jimi Hendrix, Fleetwood Mac, Pink Floyd and Led Zeppelin.

Redoubtable drummer George Lindsay, alongside super songwriter and bass player Alan Thomson form the core of Martin’s accomplished band, with vocals performed by the talented and distinctive Dan Crisp. All members are committed to giving the Tull fans and a broader audience the chance to hear tracks not performed for many years with a few surprises along the way.

Harpoonist & The Axe Murderer

Special guest opener: Ryan McNally

Presented by Market Hall Performing Arts Centre

Friday April 14, 2017 – 8:00 PM

With a name like the Harpoonist and the Axe Murderer, you might be forgiven for thinking that the Vancouver-­-based duo is some sort of concept group, based on a hypothetical love story between Captain Ahab and Lizzie Borden.’ – Chris Oke, Yukon News

In reality, Shawn ‘The Harpoonist’ Hall and Matthew ‘The Axe Murderer’ Rogers evoke much more than just grisly nautical imagery. Armed with an arsenal of harmonicas, a mess of foot percussion, and a road-worn Telecaster, the duo kick out raw and primal blues in the tradition of a ‘decades-deep blues style’ (Scott Brown, What’s up Yukon), while infusing the genre with a jolt of renewed energy.

The Best Of British Pop

Presented by Peterborough Pop Ensemble
Saturday April 22, 2017 – 7:30 PM

Emerging in the 1950s, British popular music was influenced greatly by North American musical styles but, by the 60’s, the unique sound of British artists headed across “the pond” resulting in a renaissance of musical freedom and creativity.  The national appeal of UK artists such as The Hollies, Herman’s Hermits, Elton John, Rod Stewart, The Rolling Stones and the Beatles soon gave way to a phenomenal international success which continues to this day.  Come celebrate the revolution with the members of the Peterborough Pop Ensemble on Saturday, April 22, 2017 as they present “The Best of British Pop”.  Showtime is 7:30 p.m. at the historic Market Hall Performing Arts Centre in Peterborough, ON.

Tomson Highway presents Songs in the Key of Cree

Thursday May 11, 2017 – 8:00 PM

Presented by Public Energy

Songs in the Key of Cree is a compilation of songs written over the past thirty years by Cree-Canadian playwright/songwriter/pianist Tomson Highway. The songs in the show are taken from five of his musicals over the years, in order: “Rose,” “The Incredible Adventures of Mary Jane Mosquito,” “The (Post) Mistress,” “The Sage, the Dancer, and the Fool” and a new work in progress as yet to be named. What makes the songs unique is their Cree lyrics. Cree is the most spoken Native language in Canada today. “Winnipeg, Manitoba, Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Chicoutimi, Quebec, Ottawa…” that’s all Cree, a very rhythmic language that lends itself very naturally to music and music-making. And the style of the music is “cabaret.” Think Cole Porter and Kurt Weill (two of Tomson’s biggest influences)…with Cree lyrics.  Many songs will be sung in English, and some in French. Mr. Highway is tri-lingual in Cree — his mother tongue — French, and English. Songs in the Key of Cree is touring Europe in spring, 2017, with additional stops in Peterborough and Koerner Hall in Toronto.

Featuring:

Tomson Highway – pianist, songwriter, author and living legend
Patricia Cano – extraordinary Peruvian-Canadian cabaret singer
Marcus Ali – the amazing Toronto jazz saxophonist
