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™.

An Improvised Christmas Carol
December 6, 2018 8:00 pm – 10:00 pm at The Guild
ACT’s latest production sees The Island Improv Company present Charles Dickens’ classic A Christmas Carol, with a comedic twist: the audience is Dickens’ co-writer.
Ebeneezer Scrooge (Noah Nazim) is still a miser who becomes a better person after meeting three ghosts, but key details are changed based on audience suggestions.
It’s a fun, hilarious, and sincere blast of Christmas cheer that is different every night.
Starring Noah Nazim, Johnny Novak, Nadine Salami, Nason Scribner, Darlene Lund, Stacy Dunn, Sophie MacInnis, Sophia Ball and John Mazerolle.
