Singer, songwriter Nancy White is presenting a special Christmas concert at Artword Theatre, on Sunday, December 17 at 4 pm.
When Nancy appeared at Artword Theatre in September, we could have filled a theatre twice our size. Artword promised all the people who were turned away that we would get her back.
Nancy plans an evening of seasonal songs, door prizes, "stunning surprises and cunning disguises." Joining her onstage will be pianist Bob Johnston, Nancy's daughters the Wilde Sisters, and special guests from Wexford Collegiate, a performing arts school in Scarborough.
Nancy would like to meet you after the concert! (OK, Nancy would like to have mulled wine but meeting you is nice too.) Join us for refreshments after the concert in Artwords beautiful gallery.
Nancys Christmas concert will close Artwords busy fall season. Shell be hot on the heels of Canboulay Dance Theatres run of In the Depths of My Palais. Ronald Taylor, Canboulays choreographer and artistic director, promises to brighten December for us with this colourful and evocative work (at Artword December 13-16).
Nancys Christmas concert starts at 4 pm. Tickets are $20, $15 for seniors, students and arts workers. Artword Theatre is at 75 Portland Street, one block east of Bathurst, south of King.
Nancy White comes to Artword Theatre refreshed from appearances at The Festival of Friends in Hamilton and the Leonard Cohen Conference in Montreal. In the past year she hosted Nancy Whites Jokebox at the East Coast Music Awards (where she was bizarrely nominated in the "urban music" category!), starred in Comics on CBC TV, made several guest spots on Stuart McLeans Vinyl Café on CBC Radio, and did numerous concerts here and there, mostly there. Half a dozen of her songs were featured in Mama Mia! Me a Mama?, a show about motherhood by the Calgary actress Kathleen Rootsaert. Nancy also happily reports that this was a year in which her minivan was NOT stolen.
Whites most recent CD is Gaelic Envy and Other Torch Songs. Others include Momnipotent: Songs for Weary Parents, Pumping Irony and Songs of the Spanish Civil War and other Struggles.
Bob Johnston, famed not only for his brilliant playing but for his fearless imitation of a 2-cylinder.John Deere tractor, teaches music and theatre at Wexford Collegiate in Scarborough. He has co-written several musicals, notably Theda Bara and the Frontier Rabbi, and has recently become engaged
