We are pleased to inform you of two exciting performances that are taking place in and around the Village of Pakenham in Spring 2019.

The Phantom of the Hubera

Valley Players and the Almonte Community Co-ordinators are excited to present Fern Martin’s newest play, The Phantom of the Hubera.  

This much anticipated fundraiser for the Hub’s Building Fund takes the stage with 5 shows planned between April 4th and April 7th in the town of Almonte at the Almonte Old Town Hall. 

Fern Martin is a well known and much loved Lanark County resident.  An historian and playwright, Fern has lived a lifetime in the Pakenham and surrounding area, until a recent move to the West Coast.  Her return ‘home’ is always welcomed and her support and love of this community is a gift to be treasured.

The Phantom of the Hubera is assisting in the raising of funds for the Historic Building Revitalization that houses The Hub – an organization that has improved the Mississippi Mills community for almost 45 years, by selling recycled goods at fair prices.  The Hub, in turn, has improved the community by financially supporting various organizations (over one million dollars in donations) and diverting an estimated 350 tonnes of usable items from landfill.

The long-time home of The Hub, after its transformation, will provide offices for social services, a far more spacious and improved retail sales area, a more barrier-free environment and improved communal and sorting areas for the over 500 volunteers who give of their time and talent. 

Tickets are $15 and can be purchased at Mill Street Books in Almonte or on Eventbrite

The Life of Pearls – a Concert at St. Andrew’s United Church in Pakenham

The Life of Pearls present their warm and breezy concert “Into The Beautiful Blue” at St. Andrew’s United Church in Pakenham on Sat. May 4, 2019 at 7:00 pm.  

Featuring the lush vocals of Shann Bailey and the original songs of Timothy Trieste, from the group’s adult contemporary album, the concert features a 5-piece band with some of Ottawa and Toronto’s most accomplished musicians.

With styles ranging from singer-songwriter, to adult pop, to jazz, the concert aspires to also be a real stage show with a series of unique narrations which tie the songs together, featuring short stories written for the stage from Trieste’s forthcoming book.  The poetic songs and stories weave together the big themes of existence: love, loss, our purpose in nature and the greater universe, and the personal experiences we all share in making our way through life.

Tickets ($20) go on sale April 1st, 2019.
