There’s a lot happening both on stage and on the silver screen in the next few weeks.

There’s a lot happening both on stage and on the silver screen in the next few weeks.

First up is the Good Will Shakespeare Festival Society AGM which will take place this Sunday, November 3 at 4 p.m. in the Summerland Secondary School Lounge area.

For more information please contact Linda Beaven at 250-494-1248 or lindanbeaven@gmail.com

On stage at the Cleland Theatre this Sunday is the North Shore Celtic Ensemble – the first show in the 2013-14 season for Children’s Showcase.   You can get tickets at The Beanery Coffee Company.

The Hunt will be shown Nov.7 at 4 and 7 p.m. at Landmark 7 Cinema in Penticton. This is part of the Penticton Art Gallery’s Kitchen Stove Film Series.  This film is about a small tight-knit community; a lost, lonely child and a story told. Lucas is down on his luck; he is subbing as a kindergarten teacher, has recently been divorced and is trying to reconnect with his teenaged son. When he discovers little Klara lingering alone in the middle of town, he offers to take her home but when he spurns a childish token of her affection, it sets in motion a chain of events that daily become ingredients in a smothering presumption of guilt. Troubling, powerful and brilliantly crafted, the film subtly weighs each moral stone that is cast when an innocent world starts to collapse.

Many Hats Theatre Company is back with their sixth and final play of the year – Jessie’s Landing, by award-winning New Brunswick playwright John Spurway.  This play  opens on Nov. 14 at the Cannery Stage. Showtimes are Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 8 p.m. and Sunday at 2 p.m. until Dec. 7. The opening night performance will be followed by a reception in the adjoining Opus Bistro Café which will offer an opportunity to meet the cast and crew. Reserved seat tickets are available at the Wine Country Visitor’s Centre Railway and Eckhardt in Penticton or reserved by phone at 250-276-2170.  The licensed Opus Bistro Café will be open for every show with a tempting menu of dinner options. Reserve your table at Opus by calling 778-476-5856.
