The show was a true success!!! See for yourself….....
And how did it all happen? With a little help from our friends, of course…
Tina Turley, the Janis Joplin of the north played guitar in our show to help us bring back the bar era of the Empire Hotel! Doug Banwell, David Kaye’s best friend sounded a sweet saxophone in silhouette. Our newest friends Zsiporah and Michael Moon, who we met on the day they moved to Hunstville last week, graced the audience with Harp and song in the prologue. Our colleague Tony Mara who was cottaging in the area stepped in to play my hilarious husband. Jay Cheel, Kevin McMahon and Kristina McLaughlin of Primitive Entertainment were there to capture us on film. The Christmas Tyme store lent us lights. The Great Vine lent us lamps. The Rotary Club dug out bathtubs from storage and even lent us the coveted Rotary wheel and bell. The Huntsville Festival for the Arts found us chairs and ladders every other little thing we needed. The EXTRAORDINARY Dan Watson, Artistic Director of Edge of the Woods Theatre, put together a MAGICAL Nuit Blanche North for us to take part in. And last but not least, the people of Huntsville inspired us with their tales. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU EVERYONE! Another exciting memory was made, about how we brought stories to life on that bright night in Huntsville in July…
Oh, and just in case you are wondering, the tales that made it into the show were:
The Tale of The Bathtub Derby!
The Tale of The Empire Hotel!
The Tale of the Silver Ambassadors!
Shopping on the Main!

The Tale of a Town – Hunstville was produced by FIXT POINT, and created by Lisa Marie DiLiberto and Charles Ketchabaw in collaboration with theatre artists Rob Feetham, Deanna Jones, Adam Paolozza and Annie Wilson.
This exciting site-specific theatre and media project was made possible through generous support from The Ontario Arts Council, The Huntsville Festival of the Arts, Chapman’s Ice Cream, The Walrus Magazine and The Hive Strategic Marketing.
