Randy & Mr. Lahey Live – No Pants Unpissed Tour
Friday 16 September, 2016 at 08:00
The Randy and Lahey show is a silly, sexist, drunken hour and a half of songs and skits, audience participation, profanity, Shakespeare, and general hilarity. Over the past eight years it has developed into the fastest moving two man show in the known universe. From Newfoundland to Vancouver Island several hundred thousand people have been thrilled to watch Randy and Lahey shenanigans.
It’s a constant moving showcase of two television icons that pull no punches when battering the audience with “Batman and Robin” or “The Shit Rap”. The innocent honesty of an out-of-control drunken ex-cop and his side-kick Randybobandy the cheeseburger eating ex male prostitute,
The show itself is roughly based on the T.V. series and movies (Trailer Park Boys), but being live, necessitates a different format and different is the operative word here. There is nothing like it anywhere. Shit talk and poetry; sodomy and sweet talk all thrown together with music and mayhem. What more could a room full of fun seekers want?
Randy and Lahey can do a toned down version but why bother. It’s no fun that way. In other words; adult audiences only!!!. 19+

This chamber musical chronicles the life of Maurice Ruddick, an African Canadian who survived the historic mining disaster in Springhill, Nova Scotia in 1958. Ruddick – an African Canadian – was awarded “Citizen of the Year” for saving the lives of his fellow workers. This one man show will recall the events of seven miners trapped two miles beneath a small mining town, the effect it had on their rural Canadian community and the racial tension that surfaced as a result. Actor Beau Dixon amazingly portrays 10 characters: Maurice; the six miners whose lives he was credited with saving; a news reporter; Valerie, one of Ruddick’s 13 children; and Ruddick’s wife, Norma! Beneath Springhill is a story filled with tragedy, drama and comical – yet conflicting moments of hope and bravery.

Evalyn Parry takes her audience on an uncommon theatrical and musical journey in SPIN, celebrating the Bicycle as muse, musical instrument and agent of social change. Inspired by the true tale of Annie Londonderry – the first woman to ride around the world on a bicycle in 1894 – Parry spins a web of stories which travel from 19th century women’s emancipation to 21st century consumer culture. Parry’s “co-star” is a vintage bicycle: suspended in a mechanic’s stand on stage. The bike is played from fenders to spokes to bells by percussionist Brad Hart, conjuring a unique accompaniment to Parry’s songs and monologues.
