A traditional favourite, the Barra MacNeils’ An East Coast Christmas is a treat for the whole family. The five siblings are known for their brilliant instrumentals, ringing harmonies and delightful flair for story-telling. Their unique seasonal show is crafted each year to bring a special Celtic spin on traditional favourites and original east coast treasures with songs, stories and dance.
Their stunning rendition of O Holy Night is just one of the many highlights that brings audiences to their feet. Fans can also look forward to gems like Ave Maria, Christmas in Killarney, and Auld Lang Syne among an array of originals and seasonal delights.
Fresh off their On The Bright Side tour, highlighting the release of their latest studio album, the group has been winning over new audiences with their sparkling repertoire, vocals, instrumental prowess and vibrant showmanship. Hailing from Sydney Mines, Cape Breton Island, they are deeply rooted in Celtic music, culture, dance, language and history. Their numerous critically acclaimed recordings have included their own original songs as well as tried and true standards, both instrumental and vocal.

The Night Before the Night

Popalopalots Night Before Night Before Night Before Night Before Christmas Spectacular
ANBC
December 21, 2018 8:00 pm – 10:00 pm at The Guild
The Popalopalots (PEI’s favorite improv group) will be taking the stage the Night Before Night Before Night Before Night Before Christmas (December 21), bringing laughs and an all-around good time with them…All while making everything up on the spot!

Just like a classic episode of ‘Whose Line is it Anyway?’ the audience members play a pivotal role at a Popalopots show, where they bring suggestions to life with stories, characters, and jokes that either knock it out of the park or, at times, fall flat on their face. Either way, you’ll be in for a night of unforgettable laughs.

SNOW WHITE

The Queen has always been the “fairest in the land”. Her Magic Mirror tells her so! But when the Queen hears that Snow White has surpassed her, she’s willing to do whatever it takes to get rid of her… forever! Fortunately, Snow White escapes into the Deep Dark Woods, where she chances on a tiny cottage. Little does she know that the Seven Dwarves living there will help save her! The classic story of our heroine, as she encounters hapless Huntsmen, bad apples, and little men with big hearts and short tempers, comes to life as DuffleBag helps Snow White towards her “happily ever after”!

(Suitable for younger ages.)

Singing Noel

Joey Kitson is one of Atlantic Canada’s favourite singers. The versatile vocalist is equally at home singing Celtic ballads, soulful rhythm and blues, big band jazz, or mannered musical theatre. As the charismatic frontman for the band Rawlins Cross, Joey has toured through North America, Chile, and Europe, collected numerous music industry awards and helped sell truckloads of albums. He also has sung with the great Doug “Dr. Music” Riley, finding yet another outlet for his impressive musical sensibility.

Over the past decade, Kitson has also maintained another career, performing musical theatre at Confederation Centre. He has appeared many times on the storied stage, beginning with a production of Bye, Bye Birdie while still a high school student. His other stage credits include Jesus Christ Superstar, British Invasion, A Matter of Heart, the blockbuster Canada ROCKS! and the timeless Anne Of Green Gables–The Musical™.

Sing Noel at the Homburg Theatre on December 16th at 3 PM.
