JM Drama Presents

The ACTOne Play Festival

The ACTOne Play Festival features features first-time productions of one-act plays by local writers!

This year’s line-up:

Hamburger by Ciarán Myers

An Aries and a Libra clock in for work. One offers the other 80 minced cows between two pieces of a dinner role. Should we find it surprising that no one gets laid?

 

River of Light by Jessie Skinner

Toronto, 1955. Vera, an intelligent and optimistic young woman, and Arthur, a young man in the middle of a self-inflicted downward spiral, have been set up on a blind date by Pauline, a mutual acquaintance. Through misunderstandings and disagreements they attempt to find common ground if only for a fleeting moment.

Transitions by Patty Yack

The relationship of two neighbours undergoes a major transition. After knowing each other for many years, the man reveals a well-kept and carefully guarded secret which takes the woman by complete surprise.

Please also join us for the ACTOne Staged Readings, which will take place on Saturday June 10 at 2 pm!

 


June 8 – 10, 7:30 pm

Tickets are $20, $15 for students/seniors.

Call 519-578-1570 or Buy Tickets Online.

Graham Chittenden with Amish Patel

Kitchener-Waterloo Comedy Festival, The Registry Theatre and GrandWave Entertainment

present

Stand-Up @ The Registry

with Graham Chittenden and featuring Amish Patel

Our last humpday hilarity for the season!

 

Headliner Graham Chittenden

Graham is a familiar face at the Just for Laughs festival, as well as on Just for Laughs tours, coast to coast in Canada and as far away as Bermuda. He has also shared the stage on the theatre tours of Howie Mandel, John Pinette, Brent Butt, Bob Saget and more.
Graham has his own award-nominated special on The Comedy Network, has hosted talk shows on MTV and The Comedy Network, and written for shows such as CBC’s Mr. D and Still Standing. You may also recognize his voice from CBC Radio’s acclaimed comedy show, The Debaters.
Fresh and clean…but still relentlessly funny, Graham Chittenden is one of Canada’s most exciting comedic performers. Much beloved in KW, Graham has consistently sold out venues for the KW Comedy Festival.
An animal lover, Graham donates his time to the SPCA, and can’t bring any more dogs home because he’s reached the city maximum.

 

 

Amish Patel

Going back and forth as the first brown guy in Canada and the only Canadian in India, Amish’s life began as a classic fish out of two waters tale. From a young age he gained perspectives on both cultures and learned to deal with discrimination and xenophobia the best way possible, through humour. That’s right, Amish loved comedy from day one but he still got an Aerospace Engineering degree. Why? Why did Robert DeNiro become a cab driver before shooting Taxi Driver? A little something called commitment.
After literally becoming a rocket scientist, Amish made up for lost time in comedy by writing and producing his own sketch comedy show called Fade to Brown. He produced sold out shows with crowds of over seven hundred people, gained tons of median attention from NOW Magazine to the CBC and acquired the funding to executive produce a sketch comedy show for Rogers Television. After Fade to Brown, Amish focused his attention on stand-up comedy and his online presence.  Building a loyal online following and racking up hundreds of thousands of views on his comedy videos and becoming the host of Second City’s Diversity night.
Not bad for a guy who used to work on jet engines.

The Door You Came In: Song and Stories from The Danger Tree

The Door You Came In: Song and Stories from The Danger Tree

The Door You Came In

Song and Stories from The Danger Tree

Created and performed by David Macfarlane and Douglas Cameron

 

A writer visits his dying mother. He brings a book that he’d written twenty-five years ago to read to her. It’s about her family. But it’s also about the terrible battle – Beaumont Hamel – that sits at the heart of both Newfoundland’s and her family’s history. So begins The Door You Came In — a two-man performance based on David Macfarlane’s acclaimed memoir, The Danger Tree.

The Door You Came In isn’t quite a play and it isn’t quite a concert. It’s a musical story – sometimes funny, sometimes tragic – that tells the tales of family, and memory, and war.

 


 

Tuesday June 20, 8 pm

Tickets: $30 + HST General, $50 + HST VIP
