Love, Loss and what i wore
October 5th, 7:30pm

Tickets $15.00 each (Service Charges may apply)

A Fundraiser for Breast Cancer Research:

Love, Loss and What I Wore, is organized as a series of monologues and uses clothing and accessories and the memories they trigger to tell funny and often poignant stories that all women and their significant others can relate to. Like a long heart to heart with your best friend over coffee, the conversation meanders from a bittersweet story of a stepmother wearing the same style bathrobe as their deceased mom, to a couple’s musings of what they wore on their wedding day, to a rant about loathing the need to carry a purse, with odes to black clothing, cowboy boots and outfits that made mothers cringe.

Produced and Directed by Sharon Mood.


Sarah Fells, Martha Muise, Jean Vallillee, Karen Crossley, Heather d’Entremont and Sharon Mood

William Worthington III and his wife are both going to be away for the weekend from their two hundred acre Massachusetts estate with its sixteen bedroom mansion, he to Delaware to shoot ducks with the DuPonts and she to her mother's in Boston. Both have, in fact, arranged trysts with their respective lovers in the estate's beach cottage. Inevitably their paths cross and divorce is in the air. Neither is willing to give up the world famous Worthington necklace, so each devises a plan to steal it. True to the laws of farce, both simulated burglaries are scheduled for same night. Fun filled chaos ensues: mistaken identities, unlikely romantic liaisons, a bumbling private detective, a fake necklace, one very determined nymphomaniac and two scantily clad pseudo nuns sharing a single skirt. "Where did they come from?" Confusion is piled on confusion until the mystery of who has the real necklace and who has the fake is revealed in a surprise ending.

a tribute to hank williams & the drifting cowboys: feat ryan cook
October 26th, 7:30pm

Tickets $25.00  (Service Charges may apply)

Nova Scotia singer-songwriter Ryan Cook and his band The Drifting Cowboys are set to tour their acclaimed Hank Williams tribute show throughout the Atlantic provinces in the coming months. Cook performs over 20 of the country music icon’s best-known songs and will take it to stages in New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, and Newfoundland & Labrador over the months of July, August, October, and November 2018.

“As far as I can tell, Hank Williams’s songbook is the most meaningful part of Country Music history, and I love being able to share his unique spirit whenever the opportunity presents itself,” says Cook. “I’ve performed over 50 shows as Hank Williams and it’s always been the most fun I’ve ever had on stage. I am looking forward to sharing these special songs in communities throughout the region over the next few months”.

Cook has been performing as Williams for nearly a decade, beginning in 2009 with several sold-out weeks starring in the Maynard Collins play The Show He Never Gavein Sackville, NB. In that time, he has performed on iconic stages graced by the man himself, including Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium and Ernest Tubb’s Midnite Jamboree, and has thoroughly studied his life and times through biographies, museum exhibits, and more.

All of Cook’s tour dates have benefitted from the support of Yarmouth Nissan, which has generously provided him with a 2018 Nissan Titan pickup truck for his touring schedule.

It is 6pm and the Douglas family is busily preparing to be invaded by their quirky relatives for their annual Christmas Eve dinner. After robbing a neighborhood liquor store, high strung and irritable Tony, and his dim-witted side-kick Vinny, find themselves in need of a place to briefly hide out. Using a ruse to gain entrance into the Douglas home, they suddenly find themselves in charge of an ever-growing list of family members that they are forced to hold hostage. From smart-alack teenagers, to nosy neighbors, and bickering adults - the laughs (like the flow of people) are non-stop and we soon wonder who is holding who hostage?!

With outrageous characters, laugh-a-minute-dialogue, and a surprise, heart-felt ending – The holidays have never been so funny!
