Watermark Theatre is thrilled to announce a spring concert, Dreamin’ of Spring, featuring two dynamic east coast artists. Meaghan Blanchard (PEI) and Gabrielle Papillon (NS). Meaghan Blanchard and Gabrielle Papillon came together in 2017 as part of a Music PEI songwriting project. Their pairing created a magic that the two felt so strongly about, they created a songwriting duo that continues on. They will each perform solo sets and then sing a couple of their co-written songs.
Watermark Theatre will partner with sponsor North Rustico Home Hardware Building Centre to present Dreamin’ of Spring on Friday, March 16, 2018.
Desserts will be served at intermission; provided by creative North Rustico caterers, The Yellow House!
“When you come to your knees / when you hold what you need / you will know what to keep,” sings Gabrielle Papillon near the end of her sixth, most adventurous album. Hear it as a promise, hear it as a mantra, hear it as a weary warning from someone who’s been there—the sweeping and heart-piercing “Keep the Fire” album is packed full of thoughts like this: wise and poignant, empathetic and understanding, open to interpretation. Papillon’s music, too, is now open to interpretation—though it remains confidently, almost nonchalantly rooted in folk strumming and gentle vocal phrasings, on Keep the Fire she has embraced her pop leanings and pushed them to the forefront. Gabrielle’s awards include 2015 Music Nova Scotia Recording of the Year.

Fall in Love with the Swinging Sounds of the Valentine’s Cabaret
With love in the air, Sobeys Live @ the Centre serves up the ever popular Valentine’s Cabaret next week, sponsored by Charm Diamond Centres.
Vocalists Catherine O’Brien and Joey Kitson come together with a trio of Don Fraser on piano, Deryl Gallant on upright bass, and Alan White on drums for this must-see February 14 tradition. The musical union sets the scene for a memorable night of romance, humour, and classic love songs.
“The Valentine’s Cabaret is a night like no other, one accented by the swinging sounds from another era that is sure to entertain, surprise, and romance,” offers Fraser, director of the Centre’s Choral Music Programme. “February 14 is an evening out at The Mack where you will hear a varied selection of classics from the American Songbook,”
The jazz trio will back Kitson and O’Brien across two rollicking sets of ballads, blues tunes, and pop standards, including ‘My Funny Valentine’, ‘Time after Time’, ‘Skylark’, and ‘Have I told you lately that I Love you.’ Other standouts include ‘You’d be so nice to come home to’ and ‘Fly me to the Moon’
Showtime is 7:30 p.m. at The Mack and tickets are moving fast! Contact the Centre’s box office at (902) 566-1267, toll free at 1-800-565-0278, or online at confederationcentre.com.

The Harbourfront Players are back at the Harbourfront Theatre! You loved Bedtime Stories and Lights, Camera, Island!, and now the Players return with Maggie’s Getting Married by Norm Foster.
The Duncan family asks you to save the date because their daughter Maggie is getting married!
Or is she? It’s normal for people to have cold feet just before a wedding, but at the post-rehearsal reception, one person – who shouldn’t – recalls the groom as having warm feet. It’s a delightful comedy about love, family, and marriage from Canada’s most-produced playwright Norm Foster (Bedtime Stories, Looking, Love List, Mending Fences, etc.).
