TPM Salon brings Radio Plays to Maw’s Bar and Eatery! Monday!
Join us at the TPM Salon on Monday February 23rd Doors open for drinks and food at 6:00pm. We go live at 7:00pm.
A sampling of Ross McMillan’s Winnipeg plays rescued from the CBC radio vault! Never before heard by a live audience…..or seen!
You will hear them first! These short plays require nimble performances and live Foley effects to create the world of Winnipeg at the turn of the century. You will learn about your City, you will be entertained, you will bear witness! The Tree Lady, Birth of the Arts, Broadway and Court Trials …….. Winnipeg like you have never heard it before.
What in tarnation are we doing? Come and find out. TPM pass holders get in free OR admission by donation at the door.
Directed by Michelle Boulet with Sarah Constible, Ryan Bjornson, Ross McMillan, and more!
SCOTT NOLAN: the I Dream of Diesel muse“Some have called him noteworthy, even acclaimed – but the smart money cites Nolan as a voice rarely heard this side of the century, a musician who shrugs away any five-dollar-cover singer-songwriter motifs before he unsnaps his guitar case. His are the songs sung for people with a past, sturdily backlit with unswerving musicianship and a disposition rooted in the best of rock n’ roll, roots and Americana.”
Acclaimed Winnipegger, Scott Nolan, is a musical force to be reckoned with. His work serves as muse for our upcoming presentation of One Trunk Theatre’s collective creation, I Dream of Diesel. We encourage you all to fall in love with Scott’s work as much as we have- it shouldn’t be hard! Check out Folk Fest Thursdays at the Good Will Social Club hosted by Mr. Nolan himself . Every second and fourth Thursday of the month, Scott will host an evening of eclectic and ever changing folk music from home and beyond. At Folk Fest Thursdays, Scott seeks to nurture a community that gave him his life’s work:
“My songwriting career began in earnest, after hours at the Blue Note Café and it depended greatly on the generosity of many Winnipeg musicians young and old. At Folk Fest Thursdays, we’ll see that tradition continue.
Come celebrate 2015 and the power of the solo playwright! Having closed the fascinating and powerful White Rabbit Red Rabbit, many of the artists and audience members feel compelled to continue discussing this bold theatrical experiment. We have invited a number of the actors who performed White Rabbit to engage a panel discussion with the audience about the communal experience of this piece.
We will also have some searing and entertaining pieces in the solo voice genre to celebrate the power of the playwright to incite us with his/her words! Amazeballs!
To top it all off, we will have musical guests BUNNY. Because musicians are rabbits too! R’n’B and the ukulele: it’s an unlikely pairing, but BUNNY pulls it off with humour and style. B-Rabbit and HunnyBunny will put a smile on your face and take you back to a kinder, simpler time… So snap on your slap bands, dig out your favourite scrunchie, and get ready to travel back to the 90s!
Look forward to appearances by Gord Tanner, Kevin Ramberran, Liam Zarillo, Ryan Bjornson, Justin Fry, and many more! Join us Monday, January 26th at Maw’s Eatery, 111 Princess St. Doors are at 6pm, show is 7pm, and the kitchen and bar are open! Admission is free for Season Passholders and by donation for civilians. See you Monday!
