Elf the Musical

December 20th to 27th, 2023 | Glace Bay, NS

A title known the world over, Elf The Musical is a must-produce holiday musical that can easily become an annual tradition for any theatre. Based on the cherished 2003 New Line Cinema hit, Elf features songs by Tony Award nominees Matthew Sklar (The Wedding Singer) and Chad Beguelin (Disney’s Aladdin on Broadway), with a book by Tony Award winners, Thomas Meehan (Annie, The Producers, Hairspray) and Bob Martin (The Drowsy Chaperone). Buddy, a young orphan, mistakenly crawls into Santa’s bag of gifts and is transported to the North Pole. The would-be elf is raised, unaware that he is actually a human until his enormous size and poor toy-making abilities cause him to face the truth. With Santa’s permission, Buddy embarks on a journey to New York City to find his birth father and discover his true identity. Faced with the harsh realities that his father is on the naughty list and his half-brother doesn’t even believe in Santa, Buddy is determined to win over his new family and help New York remember the true meaning of Christmas. This modern-day holiday classic is sure to make everyone embrace their inner elf. After all, the best way to spread Christmas Cheer is singing loud for all to hear. ELF- THE MUSICAL Is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI).

Joseph Kashetsky: T-Shirts and Sweatshirts, 50 Years on…

December 1st, 2023 to April 7th, 2024 | Fredericton, NB

Saint John’s Joseph Kashetsky (1941-1974) was an artistic genius, his career cut short by a tragic early death at the age of 33. His modern graphic creations ranged from rich and sometimes disarmingly simple abstract drawings and paintings, to lovingly rendered pointillist landscapes, and these buoyant, colourful hand-painted T-shirts.

Kashetsky specialized in abstracts but was well known for his versatility of mediums. In 1972, his originality drew national attention when he put on a one-man touring show of the “Painted T-shirts and Sweatshirts” which was organized by the Beaverbrook Art Gallery. The fully wearable shirts featured everything from aspects of the cosmos to geometric shapes, to representations of film stars such as Laurel and Hardy. Joseph’s brother Herzl generously donated 7 of the 26 shirts that were made 50 years ago.
