Sue_RamsaySecond Thursdays: Feb 11, Mar 10, April 14, May 12, 2016 (last one for the season), at 8 pm, $10 /$5. Jazz vocalist Sue Ramsay hosts a jazz vocal jam, backed by Bob Shields on guitar and Clark Johnston on stand-up bass, with Adam Fielding on drums. With some storytelling in the mix. Sue says: “I want to create an environment where singers can do their thing and promote whatever they’re working on.  And I get to gig once a month to try out new material and jam a wee bit with my trio. I have often found being a singer is a lonely road. The path is not always clear but so much easier with a network of friends around.” .

Tuesday April 26 to Sunday May 8, 2016, a two-week run at Artword Theatre / Artword Artbar.   MacBush, the Musical, by David L. Dawson and directed by Ronald Weihs, is a new musical play that is — yes, you guessed it — a mash-up of Shakespeare’s Macbeth and the George ‘Dubya’ Bush administration during 2001/9/11 and the War on Iraq.

G. Dubya and his sidekicks Dickie, Rummy, Condi and Coley sing jaunty show tunes while they plan tactics of ‘shock and awe’. Songs sung by a soldier and an Iraqi woman reveal other viewpoints. With guest appearances by ‘Saddam Hussein’ and ‘Osama Bin Laden’ and ‘Ahmadinejad’ as witches, who have some chilling prophecies about our now current world crisis.

Performed by a cast of seven accomplished singer-actors in the Artword Theatre Ensemble:
Jamila B., Sean Emberley, Shavini Fernando,
Will Gillespie, Allan Merovitz,
Jon-Gordon Odegaard, Jay Shand

Book and lyrics by David Laing Dawson. Music by Charles W. Humphreys.
Directed by Ronald Weihs. Music direction by Tim Nijenhuis.
Design by Judith Sandiford. Produced by Artword Theatre and Gallery on the Bay.
