Still time to enjoy Celebration of the Arts
This year’s Uxbridge Celebration of the Arts has already been a phenomenal success – and it’s not over yet! From October 12 to 14, treat yourself to a performance of “The Life and Death of John the Milkman” at the Uxbridge Music Hall, starting at 7:30 p.m. Written and directed by Joshua Bainbridge, it’s a must-see for those who love the quirky, the outrageous, the unusual. Plus, it’s a great opportunity to see local actor Jennifer Carroll in action again. She starred in the one woman show, “Maud of Leaskdale,” about the life of Lucy Maud Montgomery.
As for John the Milkman, a teaser: “In the summer of 1959, in a little suburban town, in a very ordinary kitchen, four ‘regular’ housewives find themselves in a very irregular situation, but how hard can it be to dispose of a dead body? This dark comedy follows the lives of four women trapped within the constraints of social expectations. How relatable can relationships from 1959 be to ones today? Perhaps more than you may expect. This is a story about four women who are ready to claim their rights, their identities, and their own independence, at any cost. This show contains mature themes and content.”
Tickets ($20 per adult, $15 per student) are available at Sugar FX, starticketing.com or at the door.
On Sunday, October 15, music-lovers can indulge their passion at “5 Choirs, 150 Voices” at Trinity United Church. This performance of choral classics will begin at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $20 and are available at Sugar FX and starticketing.com.
