Confessions of a Redheaded Coffee Shop Girl

Johannes Linstead

Rebecca Perry is a tour de force in her one-woman musical "Confessions of a Redheaded Coffeeshop Girl". She is Joanie Little: feisty redhead and anthropology graduate who is stuck working as a barista.  Eager to use her actual skills, Joanie starts reporting her findings on the creatures (humans) of her "Coffeeshop Jungle" as though she were Jane Goodall herself, bushwhacking through the African jungle to study the chimpanzees! Hilarity ensues -- bosses are angered -- the local news has a heyday!  "She's got tons of charm, confidence and is totally bright on-stage Perry is a 4 star performer“ Winnipeg Free Press

Acting Anyone? Rebecca Perry will be giving a workshop with the Deep River Players on the morning of October 1. For more information, call Phyllis Heeney 584-2970

Saturday October 1 at 7:30 pm at Child'sAuditorium

Eh440

Fortunate Ones

Using just their voices, this Toronto-based singing group has wowed audiences across the USA, Canada, and Europe. Five people from five very different backgrounds and musical genres started harmonizing together in 2012. Joe Oliva's a low bass singer, Luke Templeton's an urban beatboxer, Janet Turner identifies as a country/pop singer, Stacey Kay's soul/pop, and Jake Stern likes contemporary vocal/pop music. Together they form "an unforgettable combination of crazy beatboxing, sassy rapping, killer harmonies, and fresh, urban, RnB-influenced compositions".

An East Coast Family Christmas

With The Ennis Sisters

Jim Whitter

Get into the spirit of the season with a wonderful holiday concert with the Ennis Sisters! With their buttery harmonies, and voices as powerful as the Atlantic, it’s in their bones to sing. Two of the Ennis Sisters entertained THEOP patrons in 2014 and now they are back with their sister Teresa for a taste of Newfoundland Christmas! Original and traditional Christmas songs.

From Weimar to Vaudeville

Featuring Tom Allen

Ballet Jorgen

Tom Allen of CBC fame (currently hosting ‘Shift’) has written this chamber musical that includes storytelling, music and song. As America emerges from the Great Depression and Germany descends into darkness and chaos, two musical princes, one rich, one poor, reach to each other across hardship and time as the world tilts again toward war. It features music by Richard Strauss, Charlie Chaplin, Kurt Weill, Fletcher Henderson, Mozart, Brahms, and stunning original songs by the cast: Patricia O’Callaghan, Bryce Kulak, Kevin Fox, Lori Gemmell, Peter Gemmell and Tom Allen.

EXTRA!! Tom Allen - storyteller, broadcaster, author and musician -- will be hosting a special event on Saturday afternoon, January 27 at 3:30 pm when he will be discussing music history and how it affects the music of today. He’s a great speaker and will undoubtedly include some entertaining anecdotes about composers.

Double Double Duo

Quartette

Two-time Canadian Accordion Champion Michael Bridge and clarinetist Kornel Wolak bring comedy, virtuosity, and musical sensitivity to a broad repertoire – and we do mean BROAD! We couldn’t believe what an amazing variety of sounds a digital accordion can create when we saw them showcase. They play orchestral works, jazz tunes, pop and world music – with an incredible full sound from just two instruments. Such fun guys too!

Seniors’ Luncheon: This duo will be performing at the Meals to Wheels Luncheon in the Long Term Care Center the day of the concert. Michael will be bringing his acoustic accordion for that smaller space! Do sign up early!
