MR. NEW YEAR'S EVE: A Night With Guy Lombardo

BY DAVID SCOTT

For forty-eight consecutive years Guy Lombardo was North America’s “Mr. New Year’s Eve”. Despite disapproval from his father and Canadian radio stations alike, Lombardo and His Royal Canadians blazed a path from Huron County to the Big Apple the likes of which has never been seen before or since.

THE BERLIN BLUES

BY DREW HAYDEN TAYLOR

Two German developers arrive unannounced on the sleepy, fictional Otter Lake reserve. They have with them international investors, $164 million dollars and blueprints for a “Native Theme Park”. Full of absurd gags and indelible, larger-than-life characters, The Berlin Blues is a slap down drag’em out cultural appropriation comedy of the highest (and lowest) order.

August 9 to September 23 | WORLD PREMIERE

THE PIGEON KING

BY THE COMPANY

Arlan Galbraith a long time pigeon breeder, claimed to have access to lucrative pigeon racing markets in Saudi Arabia and throughout the Middle East. Galbraith began approaching local farmers and neighbours asking them to invest in a piece of the royal action by selling contracts with guaranteed profits for buyers of his breeding pairs, promising to personally buy back all of the chicks. A country parable for our times, reminding us that what takes flight, always comes home to roost.

August 16 to September 16 | WORLD PREMIERE

IPPERWASH

BY FALEN JOHNSON & JESSICA CARMICHAEL

The history of the Kettle and Stony Point people goes back to time immemorial. The land along the shores of Lake Huron is home to hundreds of traditional medicines, as well ceremonial spaces, and burial grounds. After the war of 1812 the Chippewa’s of Kettle and Stony Point were granted, by the crown, lands along Lake Huron for their service. By 1929 much of the beachfront property of Kettle and Stony Point was sold by the Indian Agent without permission from the community. In 1942, under the War Measures Act, the Department of National Defence expropriated 2400 acres of the Stony Point people’s territory. Families were moved to nearby Kettle Point. This move allowed for the creation of Camp Ipperwash, a training base for Canadian soldiers that was promised to return to the people of Stony Point after World War II. It took over 70 years for that promise to be fulfilled. Now that the land has been returned, the process of decontamination and healing has begun. Co-written by Falen Johnson (Mohawk/Tuscarora) and Jessica Carmichael (Abenaki), Ipperwash tells the story of resistance, resilience, and reclamation.
