EMPsmaller.jpg

Thursday October 25 2018 – 7:30 PM
Presented by Ferreri Films

Genre: Drama, Thriller
Runtime: 83 minutes
Rated: 14A

After an E.M.P. (Electro Magnetic Pulse) weapon is deployed. North America is forced to live in pre industrial conditions. Anything electrical is useless, sending the country into anarchy. An introverted 11 year old girl must fend and fight for herself while trying to find her father.

Adriano Ferreri of FerreriFilms is thrilled to announce his first feature film “E.M.P. 333 Days” is coming to Market Hall Performing Arts Centre in Peterborough Ontario Thursday October 25th 7:30pm. There will be a Q&A with the director after the film.

After three years and an estimated 2500 hours of shooting and production, this passion project is complete and ready to be viewed by the world! The movie was locally shot in Peterborough and the Kawarthas and features local actors, Liam Davidson (4th line theatre), Dan Smith (Citiots), Martin Saunders, Derek Bell, Cheryl Ellis (Strutt Agency).  The main character is played by Ferreri’s teenage daughter, Rosa Ferreri, also her first role in a feature film. “I gave up weekends and every spare hour I had to finish this movie.  I wrote it to match our community and showcase our area but also to prevent travel costs and ultimately a higher budget. I have wanted to make a feature film since Film School, but life often has other plans, but it’s never too late to pursue your dreams.” Adriano Ferreri, FerreriFilms.

What Audiences are saying about the film:

“Exceeded all expectations! We all loved it. Everyone did an amazing job – what talent.”

“Excellent! I barely moved through the whole movie! Riveting right to the end! I would go see it again!”

“What an awesome movie! Exciting and made me jump in my seat. Well done, Ferreri Films! Be proud!”

“Your movie was amazing!!!!!!!!! Loved all the suspense and attention to detail! Congrats! Can’t wait to see your next one P.S. Rosa and Liam and the rest of the cast were awesome!!!!!!!”

Stories & Songs of Stompin’ Tom

whiskeyjack2018smaller2.jpg

Stories & Songs of Stompin’ Tom

Friday October 26, 2018 – 7:30 PM
Presented by Duncan Fremlin

Whiskey Jack performed as Stompin’ Tom’s All Star back up band for many years.  Band leader and banjo player Duncan Fremlin first toured with Tom in 1990 and continued to perform with this great Canadian troubadour until his death in 2013.   Also on the Market Hall stage will be Juno Award nominee and multi-instrumentalist, Douglas John Cameron;  Stompin’ Tom’s fiddler (and five time Canadian National Bluegrass Fiddle Player) Randy Morrison;  Tom’s bass player Eric Jackson and Canadian drumming legend, Al Cross.

For over 40 years, Whiskey Jack has been performing their unique brand of Canadian country, folk and roots music throughout North America.   In the 1980’s, they were featured weekly on CBC TV’s Tommy Hunter Show.   During those years, each Friday night, Stompin’ Tom Connors would tune in and watch their segment, The Ol’ Back Porch.  It was then that Tom became an avid Whiskey Jack fan.  Along with 2 million of his fellow Canadians, Tom enjoyed the band’s humour, soaring vocals and amazing musicianship.

When Stompin’ Tom returned to the recording studio and the road after a 13 year hiatus, he called Whiskey Jack and invited them to join him in the studio to record his acclaimed album, “Dr. Stompin’ Tom… Eh?” followed by a cross Canada tour.

Choir! Choir! Choir!

38186253_1114909891996076_8581756291368615936_o.jpg

A community choir established in 2011, Toronto’s Choir! Choir! Choir! brings together an eclectic mix of Parkdale-dwelling baristas and suburban moms and dads for stirring, frequently viral performances.

Nobu Adilman and Daveed Goldman, the founders, take anon-traditional approach; there are no auditions, and the audience is the choir. Just show up and they'll teach you an original arrangementto a song you love. It’s interactive theatre. It’s stand up comedy. It’s a concert like you’ve never seen before.

Founded in 2011, Choir! Choir! Choir! has amassed a dedicated and passionate community of singers and a thriving international fan base on YouTube (15,000 subscribers and over 10 million views). The group has performed with renowned artists such as Patti Smith, Tegan and Sara, and Rufus Wainwright, and onstage at New York’s Carnegie Hall and Radio City Music Hall with the likes of Debbie Harry and The Flaming Lips.Choir! Choir! Choir! exists to celebrate music and push the boundaries between practice and performance, artist and audience, offering therapeutic benefits with the ultimate side effect: a powerful community. Watch Prince Tribute at Massey Hall.

"It's more than talent and charisma that have made Nobu and Daveed a vital part of our music community - and they have plenty of it! What they do so well, so consistently with Choir! Choir! Choir!, is build community, inspire togetherness, and turn that romantic idea that everyone's a star into something meaningful and empowering and most importantly, fun." - Stephen McGrath, promoter at Massey Hall

No Celtic Thunder show would be complete without an encore of their rousing anthem “Ireland’s Call”, the only song in CELTIC THUNDER X that isn’t a new song but which never fails to bring the audience to its feet.
