Second Sunday Sing-Alongs! Every 2nd Sunday @ 2:00pm. August 12, Sept. 9, and so on.  PWYC (pay what you feel you can.). Starting in May The Pearl Company is opening its doors to a Community Sing-Second-Sunday-Sing_05_18Along. Every second Sunday of every month at 2 o’clock we invite the Hamilton community to come and raise your voices. We will be singing Great Old Tunes from the 60s, 70s and onward. Inspired by the “Rise Up” songbook, another legacy of Pete Seeger. Let’s join our voices and remember the way we used to sing and dream and set our voices free.  So bring something to strum or hum or shake.  SING YOU SOON!
Hosted by Howard Jerome (who really was singing folk songs in Greenwich Village in the sixties).

The cast and crew are doing a one-night showcase at The Pearl – just to give us a taste (and mMercuryMan_Rod_07_18ake sure they’ve ironed out the wrinkles….)
Hollywood, 1985. While recording his last ever film role – the voice of a cartoon robot planet – Orson Welles meets his “Biggest Fan,” and recounts tales of his early success in film, theatre and radio, the aftermath of making the greatest movie of all time, and all that must be sacrificed in order to do what you were made for.
“Interesting concept, good pacing, great dialogue” – Toronto Fringe New Play Jury

Tickets: $20 / $15 EuphonicClr_07_18students/seniors/un(der)waged. “Euphonic are Geoff Ball, Bob Wegner, and Vince Waters.  With cello, guitar, and drums they have created an eclectic sound of their own – a fusion of classical, Latin, folk, prog rock, ragtime, and jazz. They’ve been writing and playing music together for over a decade, and have finally managed to come together to compile an album’s worth of their original compositions. They are excited to finally be doing their album release show at the Pearl Company, where they will perform their album and more.”  Gary Santucci pulls out some chops and opens for them.
