AvenueQ

Apex Productions presents Avenue Q

AVENUE Q is not the most upmarket of New York streets, and is about as far away from Park Avenue as you can get, but it is home to some lively and off the wall characters performed by an unholy comedic alliance of humans and puppets! 

Princeton, a bright-eyed college graduate, has just moved to this neighbourhood as he desperately tries to follow his dreams and discover his ever-elusive purpose in life. A tiny bank balance, the distraction of a busty blonde and a variety of weird and wonderful friends and neighbours lead Princeton on a hilarious story of self-discovery.

AVENUE Q was the winner of the 2004 Tony Award® for Best New Musical, Best Book of a Musical and Best Original Score!

logo for brochure

Hebrides Ensemble meets Vegas jumpsuit this November for a rare performance of Dead Elvis. Michael Daugherty’s radical piece draws its inspiration from the legendary star’s cultural legacy and enduring appeal. Solo bassoonist Peter Whelen dons the white suit for a classical take on the King.

The evening begins with Suite op 157b by French-born composer Darius Milhaud whose time in America adds hints of 1920s Harlem jazz. Soprano Claron McFadden re-joins Hebrides Ensemble for three pieces, starting with Thomas Adès‘s Life Story, set to text by American author and playwright Tennessee Williams.

Claron continues with Stephen Montague’s Wild Nights, inspired by American poet Emily Dickinson, and finishes with Dream with Me fromPeter Pan, Leonard Bernstein’s musical adaptation of the classic J M Barrie tale.

Ryan Quigley, one of the UK’s most in-demand jazz trumpet players, rounds off the American theme with A Fiddler’s Tale Suite, Wynton Marsalis’s jazzy tribute to Stravinsky.

Join us as the Hebrides Ensemble drops in some jazzier notes to its classical repertoire for a lively celebration of America’s best.

Ryan Quigley: Solo Jazz Trumpet, Peter Whelen: Solo Bassoon, Claron McFadden: Soprano.

White Christmas – Broughty Ferry Amateur Operatic Society @ Gardyne Theatre
Nov 25 @ 19:30 – Nov 29 @ 22:00

White Xmas

Broughty Ferry Amateur Operatic Society are well known for the excellence of their productions and patrons are guaranteed a most entertaining evening of song and dance produced by live performers on stage, backed by a full orchestra in the pit, an increasingly rare sight these days.

The song “I’m Dreaming of a White Christmas” must be one of the very few songs dating as far back as 1940 with which most of today’s primary school children will be familiar.  Older generations will associate it most probably with the 1954 film White Christmas starring Bing Crosby, Danny Kaye and Rosemary Clooney (yes, George’s aunt!), although it also appeared in the 1942 film Holiday Inn.

But the film is no one-song wonder.  The genius of Irving Berlin also produced “Happy Holiday”, “How Deep Is The Ocean”, “I’ve Got My Love To Keep Me Warm”, “Blue Skies” and many others, ensuring that audiences will come out not knowing which of the many tunes to hum on their way home, something that can’t be said of many more modern musicals.
