The Once - POSTPONED
Newfoundland has a storied history of stunning songwriters, poets and players. Over the course of the last decade The Once have writ and knit themselves into that story. Within the nine songs on their new album Time Enough, The Once offer some of the most vulnerable and honest material of their career.
On this, their fourth studio album, the band stays true to the root strength of their harmony driven sound, while extending the borders into fresh yet familiar territory. They craft a sonically understated, but emotionally fulsome sound that accomplishes what they’ve always done so well: stun listeners with what Amelia Curran calls “perfect vocal harmonies, thick enough to stand on.”

JAMES MULLINGER - BECOMING CANADIAN[CROSS COUNTRY 2020 STAND UP COMEDY TOUR]
Saturday, September 19th at 7:30pm
British comedian James Mullinger has taken Canada by storm. Sold out shows across the country, appearances on CBC’s The Debaters, movies, TV shows, festivals, awards, magazines, stand up specials – since moving to The Maritimes six years ago he’s done it all.
But he’s putting movies and TV shows aside to go out and do what he loves most. Live stand up comedy. For four months solid, James is on the road again and this is his first ever Georgetown tour date!
In April 2016, James sold out New Brunswick’s biggest indoor venue Harbour Station Arena (beating Jerry Seinfeld’s sales record in the process) with his uniquely hilarious stand up show. This record breaking show was documented for a CBC documentary film ‘City On Fire’ (which you can watch here) which aired across Canada to rave reviews and high ratings. The stand up special of the show itself was picked up by Hulu and Amazon Prime so his tales of life in Canada are now being enjoyed by people in Germany, Japan and America. Read more about it here.
In April 2018 he sold out Harbour Station a second time, this time beating how own record which made headlines across the pond.
James tours extensively to packed houses across Canada and England and has written and produced a big screen feature film starring actors from Downton Abbey and Twilight about his early years in stand up, which was described as “unmissable” by GQ Magazine and “essential viewing. A funny, realistic look at what it takes to become a stand up comedian,” by the Montreal Times.
James is one of Atlantic Canada’s biggest cheerleaders. He loves it here and spends his time promoting it across the world and raising money for charities and non-profits. James has raised more than $150,000 for East Coast charities. He has also become one of Canada’s top comics, being nominated for both a Just For Laughs comedy award and a Canadian Comedy Award for Best Live Show and a Canadian Comedy Award for Best Taped Live Performance.
He also launched his own international magazine The Maritime Edit to share his love of Atlantic Canada with the rest of the world.
This show features brand new material for 2020 as well as some of his classic routines including Maritime Directions (which has notched up almost half a million view on Facebook alone!).
Book now for this show, it will sell out!

Artistic Fraud: Between Breaths - POSTPONED
Join us for this profoundly moving play that celebrates the wonders of the human spirit and the incredible impact one person can have.

Artistic Fraud of Newfoundland’s
Written by Robert Chafe
Directed by Jillian Keiley
Music composed and arranged by The Once
Well known in Newfoundland as the Whale Man, Dr. Jon Lien during the course of his work pioneered techniques for rescuing whales entrapped in fishing nets. Often risking his very life in the water with the formidable and frightened animals, Dr. Lien would seek to earn their trust as much as the fishermen’s. He looked for the best way to free whales while doing as little damage to the fishing gear as possible.
His efforts saved the lives of over 500 animals, and earned him the hard-won respect of the island’s fishermen. Despite his risky work, Lien’s biggest fight came at the hands of a lengthy illness, the suspected long-term result of a random highway accident. He passed away in 2010, but not before his body was slowly conquered over 8 years by a progressing immobility and dementia.
Between Breaths jumps time backwards, from the final moments of Lien’s life – in a wheelchair and dealing with brain damage – to his very first whale intervention. As his life becomes further and further confined, his mind stretches itself in memories of release and salvation.
