A Missing Link Theatre Company
(AMLTC), London's newest professionally engaging theatre company is PROUD to announce
its adventurous 2013/2014 Season. Our MAIN SERIES includes three productions being
presented at The McManus Studio Theatre at The Grand Theatre.
Vigil by Morris Panych
Our adventure begins in the home of Aunt Grace. This Production will be presented
November 12th - 23rd, 2013 ... featuring Carol Robinson-Todd as Grace, and Colin
Legge as Kemp.
"A poignant, dark comedy by Canadian playwright, Morris Panych, VIGIL is about an
unexpectedly extended visit between Kemp, an oddball middle-aged man, and his bedridden
elderly aunt whom he hasn't seen in 30 years. His charitable act of visiting his
dying aunt quickly wanes as Kemp's unyielding, matter-of-fact quirky personality
makes the audience laugh and gasp at the same time. Witness this oddly matched pair
become trapped in a macabre bond that's comic on the surface; and yet, deeply human
at its core."
A Really Retro Christmas Special created by Rick Kish
We go back to a simpler time to celebrate a really retro FUNdraiser, Sunday, December
15th 2013. TWO PERFORMANCES ONLY - 2:00 & 7:00 PM. This show is being held to
raise money to help cover production costs for AMLTC's 2013/2014 season. This show
features Rick Kish and Natalie Howard-Grant as your Hosts. We welcome back Jonathan
Gysbers and introduce NEW special guests Alexandra Grant and Margarita Sanchez.
NEW music & NEW stories.!!
"Imagine those live TV Christmas Specials from the 50's & 60's (Judy Garland,
Bing Crosby, Frank Sinatra) where the setting was warm and cozy, the guests arrive
and the show begins ... Expect surprises and lots of FUN.!! Christmas music combined
with Popular & Musical Theatre standards from the 40's, 50's & 60's, with
heartwarming stories and comedy, Rick and the gang take you on a journey back to
simpler times." Every ticket holder will receive two tickets for the ticket auction
items, with an option to purchase more chances to win.
Billy Bishop Goes To War by John Gray.
February 2014, the anniversary year of WWI, with an epic adventure we go to a time
when Heroes were made. Presented February 25rd - March 8th, 2014.
"This truly Canadian play is about Canada's greatest flying ace and introduces audiences
to the life of this lively and inspiring Canadian hero. Part musical and part drama.
The actor playing WWI fighter pilot William Avery Bishop also introduces us to 17
other characters. From humble beginnings in Owen Sound to the fame and glory of
being this country's "top-scoring pilot" of the First World War, this show is not
to be missed!"
There's MORE ... Our NEW BAR SERIES being presented at The APK, 347 Clarence Street,
And now for something completely OUTRAGEOUS!!
Saucy Jack & The Space Vixens
Book and Lyrics by Charlotte Mann and Michael Fidler
Music by Jonathan Croose and Robin Forrest
A raucous REVIVAL production presented March 20th - April 6th, 2014
"All is not well at Saucy Jack's ... The evil shadow of a serial killer looms over
the bar; cabaret acts are being killed off one by one, found stabbed by the heel
of a sequinned slingback shoe. The bar's owner, Jack, doesn't seem that bothered
by the threat of murder or the tragic loss of his cabaret acts - he's more concerned
it'll be bad for business.
We meet the down-trodden waitress Booby Shevalle, talented young saxophonist Sammy
Sax, willing barman Mitch Maypole and eccentric regular at the bar, Dr. Willhelm
von Whackoff, as they try to figure out "who is this Slingback Killer?"
Not to worry, the super fashion crime fighters from a groovier galaxy, The Space
Vixens, hit the ground singing their dance anthem Glitter Boots Saved My Life.
They harness the Power of Disco to discover who the Slingback Killer is. Cheers
meets Jack the Ripper in Space! Join this cast of misfits and participate as The
Space Vixens are drawn into a cosmic underworld where their unique powers promise
justice, hope and unadulterated funk."
