HELD OVER! Shelley Marshall Presents: The Award Winning Production “Hold Mommy’s Cigarette”: April 18 & 19. All One Woman’s story of an unfiltered life, written and performed by Shelley Marshall, directed by Linda Kash. It seems appropriate that world renowned Comedienne, Marshall would open her autobiographical One Woman Show in the city where the story and star were born. It took 10 years for Marshall to create this Play and it is the rewarding result of resilience, recovery, and reflection while exploring many genres of performance including elements of clown, stand up, improv, buffoon, and play. Shelley Marshall takes her audience many places; “I take them on an adventure, both emotionally and visually. There is no denying that my story is tragic, but it’s my story and time and writing without shame has been my comedic relief. ‘Hold Mommy’s Cigarette’ is not an exploitation of what has happened in my life, but rather, an acceptance of where it may lead. It is a dark comedy, a vulnerable piece about life, mental illness and survival.” Marshall reveals with a smile. She invites you to come to her show with an open mind and promises you’ll leave with a full heart. *Mature Content* http://www.holdmommyscigarette.com Tickets available at http://www.thepearlcompany.ca or 524-0606.

CHECK THE REVIEW FOR DEATH AND THE MAIDEN:
Death and the Maiden: Written by Laurence Olivier Prize Winning playwright Ariel Dorfman. This is the fourth production that Nortesur has developed for the stage; chosen because it speaks passionately about current international events, it asks tough questions about forgiveness and the role of victims and perpetrators in transitory societies, and it is a local opportunity to see a truly amazing piece of theatre written by one of Latin America’s best contemporary playwrights. It is raw, provocative, and driven by a cast of characters that are all-too-human. Performed, and designed by emerging professional artists from across the golden horseshoe and the GTA, it is an entertaining, insightful, and extraordinarily powerful piece that delivers an evening of truly engaging theatre. Thurs.July 18@ 8:00pm, Fri.19@8:00pm, Sat.20@7:00pm, Tues.23@8:00pm, Wed.24@7:00pm, Thurs.25@8:00pm, Fri.26@7:00pm, Sat.27@8:00pm

Chloe Charles: Thursday, June 28 at 8:00. Tickets: $15 / $10 students/all artists. Poised, charismatic and quirky, Chloe Charles’ limber vocal talents combine the depth and intellectual prowess of a beat poet and the sound of a modern day, folk-infused soul songstress; a sort of chamber-soul music, with jazzy detours. She’s been compared to everyone from Amy Winehouse, Feist and Bjork to Etta James and Nina Simone. Chloe’s new EP, Little Green Bud, is an intriguing fusion of old, new, sophistication and edge with large amounts of depth and warmth tossed in. “She’s something onto herself, this one…” THE GLOBE & MAIL
“Her voice is striking; beautiful and atypical, rich and lush while possessing the sort of vocal anomalies that create interest rather than discord. …. Chloe Charles has the pipes to go far, and the performances on Little Green Bud indicate an artist who is very comfortable in her own shoes. Be certain that we’ll be hearing more from Chloe Charles.” WILDY’S WORLD, USA www.chloecharles.com
