Jodee Richardson has been over on the West Coast of Newfoundland, writing songs and ensuring the prevalence of good times. Now he's back on the Avalon and building a new band!! YEEHAW! Come hear what he's made and what he's making! Tunes of ALL persuasions, stories, jokes, recitations...you know what he's like. Why, there might even be dancing...in seats, masked ('knows we can pull it off safely!). Do we really need to sell it more? This is going to be a kicker, folks.

Kiersten Noel and Timothy Matson
Kiersten Noel and Timothy Matson are thrilled to be at Perchance Theatre in Cupids to present "One Song at a Time: Original Songs from Original Musicals." An evening of songs from musical theatre that Kiersten and Timothy have written, collaborated on, and contributed to, including Hurry Hard - the Curling Musical, hope, Girls From Away, 'Til We Rise, and Isobel Gunn, along with a few stories about how these songs came to be (like the one that was written in two nights right before premiering, the one written completely as a joke but ended up in the show, and the one where they simply cannot agree on what one particular note in the chorus really ought to be). A performance of fully original songs written for original musicals, all in development right here in Newfoundland & Labrador.
