The Kings Playhouse is leaping into May with Canada’s Ballet Jörgen on May 7 at 7 pm. Great for all ages, “The Dance for All Project” is a mixed program that will showcase excerpts from major classical ballets such as Romeo & Juliet, The Nutcracker, and their smash hit Anne of Green Gables—The Ballet®, along with new contemporary works by Canadian choreographers. This show has a pay-what-you-can option.
Registration is open for the Kids Theatre Camps running July 31–August 11. The first week is for kids ages 6–8. Weeks two and three are for kids ages 9–12.
This spring, Oshun Dance Studios will be partaking in their first artist residency at Kings Playhouse. The artist’s residency will consist of a public workshop, followed by a creation and exploration movement performance at the end of the residency. The residency will be running for one week in May and one week in June.
To wrap up the month, the Playhouse presents: Knitting Pilgrim. Actor, writer and knitter Kirk Dunn will be presenting his one-man play featuring Stitched Glass tapestries on May 28 at 7:30 pm. The large knitted panels—designed in the style of stained-glass windows—look at the commonalities and conflicts of the Abrahamic faiths, and took Kirk fifteen years to knit. The play tells the story of Kirk’s artistic and spiritual journey working on this ambitious project about interfaith empathy. It has been seen over 50 times across Ontario at theatres, places of faith, and the Aga Khan Museum.
