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!

Directed by Judy Snow

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.

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.

Sometimes, when you got it, you just got it. And Jason Cyrus, well, he's definitely got it. 
He has been called "the most electrifying hypnotist on the planet" and his show has been referred as "the most entertaining hypnosis show you'll ever see.".


But how did a kid from small town New Brunswick come to be one of the best hypnotists in the world? Let's go back a bit. Cyrus notes that "even as a young child, I always loved magic. I loved the power of the mind and the control that people can have over it." His father would often bring him to see hypnotists and magicians, leaving him impressed with what they could do, and fascinated with the world of magic. He began putting on his own magic acts, and was entertaining people from a very young age. Even as a kid, he was always a huge hit at parties.


Like many Canadian children, he was also involved in hockey, and he possessed enough talent 
to make a Junior A hockey team in Ontario. One night at a private party, he saw a hypnotist perform and he just knew it was something he wanted to do. Subsequently, all his free time was soon taken up either learning all about hypnosis or playing hockey.


Cyrus has become one of the most popular hypnotists in the world. His live shows leave audiences amazed and with sore sides from laughing so much. Cyrus notes that his show "is not a typical hypnosis show. It's very theatrical, enthusiastic, mystical and magical. There is non-stop laughter." And not only that, but Cyrus says that the whole show is also very educational. It gives people "an understanding of what hypnotism is, and makes them aware of what a hypnotize person looks like."

 

His isn't a hypnotism show where participants are made to do embarrassing or degrading things while on stage. As Cyrus says, the whole show is "very family friendly, and no volunteer is left being disrespected." As a result, people are often clamoring to be on the stage at Cyrus's live shows. And if you think you can't be hypnotized, think again, as Cyrus notes, "if you wake up in the morning and go to sleep at night, you can be hypnotized." It's all a matter of trust.

British comedian James Mullinger has taken Canada by storm. Sold out shows across the country, appearances on CBC's The Debaters, movies, TV shows, festivals, awards, magazines, stand up specials - since moving to the Maritimes three years ago he's done it all.


But he's putting movies and TV shows aside to go out and do what he loves most. Live stand up comedy. For all of Spring 2018 James is on the road again!

More Details

In April 2016, James sold out New Brunswick’s biggest indoor venue Harbour Station with his uniquely hilarious stand up show. This record breaking show was documented for a CBC documentary film 'City On Fire'  which has aired across Canada to rave reviews and high ratings. The stand up special of the show itself was picked up by Hulu and Amazon Prime so his tales of life in Atlantic Canada are now being enjoyed by (or confusing!) people in Germany, Japan and America. Read more about it here.

 

Since then James has toured extensively to packed houses across Canada and England and written and produced a big screen feature film starring actors from Downton Abbey and Twilight about his early years in stand up, which was described as "unmissable" by GQ Magazine and "essential viewing. A funny, realistic look at what it takes to become a stand up comedian," by the Montreal Times.

 

James is one of the Maritimes' biggest cheerleader. He loves it here and spends his time promoting it across the world and raising money for local charities and non-profits. James has raised more than $100,000 for East Coast charities. He has also become one of Canada's top comics, being nominated for both a Just For Laughs comedy award and a Canadian Comedy Award for Best Live Show.

 

He also launched his own international magazine The Maritime Edit  to share his love of Canada’s East Coast with the rest of the world.

 

This is only his second ever show in Yarmouth, Nova Scotia. Book now for this show, last time it sold out and it will again!

Reminiscences: A Retrospective on Yarmouth’s African Nova Scotian Community is a community-based exhibit of oil and mixed media paintings and photographs put together through the efforts of four people to celebrate the history and contributions of Yarmouth’s African Nova Scotian community.

This project brings to light, through a visual portrayal, the contributions made by African Nova Scotians to the community of Yarmouth. This community-based exhibition has been developed by Tootsie Emin, a well-known Yarmouth artist, in consultation with: Sharon Robart-Johnson, Black Loyalist descendant and author of Africa’s Children: A History Of Blacks In Yarmouth, Nova Scotia, the only book written that focuses on Yarmouth’s black history from slavery to the then present day (2009); Eric Charles Smith, Black Loyalist descendant, retired civil servant, and community volunteer; and local businessman Ernest Bruce Johnson, Black Loyalist descendant and the first African Nova Scotian to graduate from the Dalhousie School of Pharmacy (1974). Yarmouth Town and County have been enriched by the contributions of many members of the Yarmouth African Nova Scotian community. The presenters deeply regret that they were unable to include everyone in this show.

All are welcome to attend the Reminiscences show opening on February 10, 2018 at 2 pm in the Community Room at the Art Galley of Nova Scotia – Western Branch, located at 341 Main Street, Yarmouth. Light refreshments will be served.

MEASHA BRUEGGERGOSMAN “Home For The Holidays”

Date

Occurs Saturday, December 16, 2017 until Saturday, December 16, 2017

Noted by the San Francisco Chronicle as “a singer of rare gifts and artistic intensity”  and by the Miami Herald for possessing “a superb voice capable of just about everything”,  Canadian Soprano Measha Brueggergosman has emerged as one of the most significant  performers and vibrant personalities of the day. She is critically acclaimed by the international  press as much for her innate musicianship and voluptuous voice as for a sovereign stage presence far beyond her years.  Ms. Brueggergosman has been honoured to participate in a number of very special events,  including the gala re-openings of Roy Thomson Hall and the University of Michigan’s Hill Auditorium, Canada Day celebrations from Parliament Hill in Ottawa, and the opening ceremonies of the XVI International Aids Conference in Toronto – her performance presented under the  auspices of MAC Cosmetics – sharing the stage with Bill Gates and President Bill Clinton. 

She has performed at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland during two consecutive years, and has given a royal command performance for Queen Elizabeth II. She has also sung for  the Prince of Wales, Queen Margrethe II of Denmark, Queen Sonja of Norway, President Tarja Halonen of Finland, her Excellency the Right Honourable Michaelle Jean, and numerous other leaders of Canada, as well as for Nelson Mandela and Kofi Annan.

J.P.CORMIER Celebrates Christmas

Date

Occurs Friday, December 1, 2017 until Friday, December 1, 2017

J.P. Cormier is a man with many musical talents. He is a skilled songwriter, a gifted singer, and an extraordinary musician who has accomplished success with more than one instrument. 


During his long career, he has won many competitions, including the Canadian Open Guitar Championship, the Southern U.S. Fiddle Championship, and the Southern U.S. Banjo Championship. He has also worked with a number of big-name artists and appeared on the ever-popular Grand Ol' Opry over two dozen times. 
His debut album, “Out of the Blue”, was released when he was only 16 years old.


Cormier was born in London, Ontario, Canada. When most kids were just starting kindergarten, he was already showing a strong interest in music. 
Soon that interest proved to be an impressive natural talent. He taught himself to play the guitar. It would only be the first of many string instruments he would master in the coming years. 


Not long after Cormier's ninth birthday, he won his first guitar competition, holding his own against musicians of all ages. He landed his first steady professional job when he was only 14. It was a weekly bluegrass television show called Up Home Tonight. Two years later came the release of a debut album filled with instrumental bluegrass music that showcased his guitar skills. 


After some time appearing at a number of festivals, Cormier became the mandolin player for the famous bluegrass-gospel group the Sullivan Family. 
He spent a number of years afterward touring with the group, and with other major artists. 


In 1997, Cormier, all grown-up, finally finished a sophomore offering, Another Morning, for his fans. 


The award-winning recording was followed by a third full-length album, Heart & Soul. Along the way to making a name for himself, Cormier has performed with countless artists, the list reading something like a who's who in music, including Alan Jackson, Marty Stuart, Bill Monroe, Waylon Jennings, Travis Tritt, Vince Gill, Kitty Wells, and many others. 


If his musical career had crashed to an end with the start of the new millennium, Cormier would still have touched enough parts of the music world to ensure that his legacy lasted long after

“Appreciating the art of Maud Lewis" with Alan Deacon

Expert on Maud Lewis coming to Yarmouth

Maud Lewis expert Alan Deacon will be giving a special talk titled “Appreciating the art of Maud Lewis” at the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia, Yarmouth in the Community Room. Deacon not only has the largest private Maud Lewis collection in Canada (spans three decades of her work), he also authenticates her paintings for all the major Canadian art auction houses. In 2011 and 2013 Deacon gave a talk at the Mayberry Gallery in Toronto for their two successful Maud Lewis exhibitions. He says, “It’s rather like being a detective! Authentic Mauds always have certain nuances in the work. I think that’s how I became an authority–by studying and looking at them closely.” This talk is sure to be informative and entertaining! Everyone is invited! Alan Deacon, would be willing to see any Maud Lewis paintings people care to bring along. He is willing to offer a verbal authentication and appraisal of Maud Lewis items. 

 

For more information please call Art Gallery of Nova Scotia Yarmouth 902 749 2248.
