    Something Old, New, Borrowed & Blue #4

    The Madawaska Valley Public Library in Barry's Bay presents its fourth show involving some very old local history about the village of Barry's Bay, some new things happening at the library, some of the hottest books borrowed from the library this month, and last but not least, the tale of Rumplestilizkin, taken from Andrew Lang's Blue Fairytale Book.

    Moments of War

    Moments of War

    The Opeongo Readers' Theatre presents this Remembrance Day show based on twelve unique moments, all drawn from the First World War.  From those first two shots fired in Sarajevo to Lawrence of Arabia's ultimate revenge, it's a show meant to look at the stuff that utterly changes a warrior's soul, as much as it's meant it to honour Canada's many war dead.

    Shiver Me Timbers!

    The Opeongo Readers' Theatre presents its annual Halloween show with Jeff Bowman, Cathy Chapeskie, Brian and Carol Peterson, and Lynn Stewart; all serving up as an appetizer, five horrible bits of poetry, quickly followed by a grotesque main course -- three short stories by H.P. Lovecraft, Ambrose Bierce and Edgar Allan Poe. Enough to make your skin crawl!

I grew up in Barry’s Bay and listening to his podcast sure brings me back home. Whenever I’m feeling homesick I play a few episodes.
