If you thought you knew the story of 'The Princess and the Pea,' you're in for a walloping surprise! Did you know, for instance, that Princess Winifred swam the moat to reach Princess Dauntless the Drab? Or that Lady Larken's love for Sir Harry provided a very compelling reason that she reach the bridal altar post haste? Or, in fact, it wasn't a pea at all that caused the princess a sleepless night? Carried on a wave of wonderful songs, by turns hilarious and raucous, romantic and melodic, this rollicking spin on a familiar classic provides for some side-splitting shenanigans. Chances are, you'll never look at fairy tales quite the same way again.

TWELVE ANGRY MEN - HAMILTON FAMILY THEATRE
Aug 07, 2019 2:00 PM Aug 24, 2019 7:00 PM
Twelve Angry Men A Riveting Courtroom Drama
By Reginald Rose
Adapted by Sherman Sergel
The life of a young man hangs in the balance as one of the most gripping stories of all time unfolds on stage.

On a hot and humid summer day, twelve men sequestered in a room must decide whether an inner-city teen is guilty of the murder of his father, thereby sentencing the young defendant to death.

It looks like an open-and-shut case, but as the dozen men try to reach a unanimous decision, Juror #8 plants the seed of reasonable doubt, thereby preventing a quick verdict … much to the chagrin of his eleven colleagues. Tempers get short, arguments grow heated, and conflict threatens to derail the delicate judicial process as twelve angry men from all strata of society revisit the evidence, and confront each other's personal biases.

A testament to the complicated quest for justice, this profoundly relevant classic is at once clever, dramatic, and deeply compelling.

MOVIE MONDAY - A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM
Aug 26, 2019 6:30 PM Aug 26, 2019 8:20 PM
A Midsummer Night’s Dream (2017), not rated

The story takes place in present day Hollywood - a place where glamorous stars, commanding moguls, starving artists and vaulting pretenders all vie to get ahead. In the tradition of Baz Luhrmann's rapturous re-imagining of Romeo + Juliet, this modern vision breathes new life into a classic tale. Combined with a cast of established and emerging stars, as well as a pulsing original soundtrack, the film will appeal to ardent fans of the Bard as well as audiences discovering Shakespeare for the first time.
