Well, 2013 has been an awesome year for us so far! Our fundraiser at The Levee was by far our MOST successful yet! So many lovely faces, so many talented bands, lots of sweet baked treats, pizza graciously donated by Stoggers Pizza, and just a really fun night. We would like to give a shout out to the wonderful Gene Browne and all of the staff of The Levee (our favourite bar! Such supporters of the arts). Also thanks to James Richard at 8 Limb Muay Thai for donating three memberships worth almost $900 to Engine Productions for the fundraiser! So many thanks! Also to Carolyn Ferrie for the donation of beautiful handmade scarves! As always, extra love to all of the musicians who performed: Avalon Stanley, The Corroborators, A Tribute to Dr. Dog (Evan Mercer, Tristan, Brad Mercer, Leon white & Nick Giles) and The Beer Patrice.
SO MANY THANKS AND GRATITUDE to everyone who gave donations or came out. Couldn’t have done it without you, and for that we send love, thanks, and we can’t wait to share more theatre with you!
Speaking of which, just a quick update since there is lots of wonderful theatre action happening right now in St. John’s!
–TaDa presents CHICAGO! opens TONIGHT at the Arts and Culture Centre and features so many talented dancers, singers and performers, such as Lynn from Lynn Panting Dance!
-Our friends at GraveYard Shift Productions are opening Someone Who’ll Watch Over Me at the Barbara Barrett Theatre on April 17 (book tickets now), and features EP’s favourite Ross Moore (Philip from The Shape of Things, Short & Queer I).
–Lawnya Vawnya: An Exposition of Independent Art and Culture also gets on the go April 17-21 and has SO MANY GOOD BANDS and events! I love this festival and think it is a wonderful and needed addition to this city and really blows me away with the talent.
