While the critics were initially lukewarm to this ‘saccharine’ musical, the world has since fallen in love with the von Trapp family story.  A true-life story based on the memoirs of Maria von Trapp, opens on the eve of the Second World War in Austria.  Austria is under the influence of Nazi Germany and the country is quickly becoming militarized.  The filmed version of The Sound of Music helped cement Julie Andrews’ status as a star.  Canada’s own Christopher Plummer played the strict Captain von Trapp, whose love of music had died with the death of his first wife.  Plummer’s Captain von Trapp forbids his seven children from practicing music.  Into this unhappy family comes a breath of fresh air.  A high-spirited young nun by the name of Maria is sent by the mother superior to further her religious education by acting as governess to the rebellious von Trapp children.  They had previously sent many governesses packing.  Maria brings music back into their lives.

At the end of the musical, the von Trapp family escapes from Austria through the Alps and bring their music to the world.

Featuring songs such as Do-Re-Mi, My Favourite Things, Climb Ev’ry Mountain, The Sound of Music, Sixteen Going on Seventeen and Edelweiss.

Bottle Tree Productions Presents: Cinderella – A Christmas Pantomime!

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

December 6th, 2011
Kingston, Ontario

Bottle Tree Productions presents

CINDERELLA – A CHRISTMAS PANTOMIME

Saturday, Dec. 17th @ The Kingston Christian School: matinee 3pm; evening 7 pm tickets $10/children, $12/seniors, $15/adults

Sunday, Dec. 18th @ L’Octave Theatre: Matinee 3pm; evening 7pm, tickets $10/children, $12/seniors, $15/adults

Our holiday offering for 2011 is Cinderella, a tried and true favourite for people of all ages. This fast-paced pantomime is Cinderella with a twist – the Prince is afflicted by a serious condition that only true love can cure!  Familiar characters of the stepmother and stepsisters conspire against Cinderella and she is helped by her Fairy Godmother.  Come see what’s happening at the Palace Ball!

This version of Cinderella was adapted for the stage by Charles Robertson with music and lyrics by popular local musician Michael K Myers.

This year, it’s a family affair!  The talented MacPherson brothers, John and Ian, have already recently starred in two big musicals in Kingston.  John starred in the Kinsmen Production of Footloose where he starred as Ren while Ian played the Artful Dodger in the Meistersingers production of Oliver!  The boys hail from Napanee.

Sara Sturgeon and her brother Eric Sturgeon also recently appeared in Oliver!

Director Anne Marie Mortensen of her experience with Oliver! said, “Ian, Sara and Eric were great to work with.  We feel very lucky to have them perform in Cinderella.  They are very dedicated young actors.  And what’s more to have such a talented young actor as John involved in the show is great.”

Anne Marie’s son Daniel also had played in Oliver!  Her daughter Hannah will add to the festivities by singing before the show.  She recently starred in KCVI’s musical Blood Brothers as Mrs. Johnson.

Co-director Charles Robertson commented that, “Both Daniel and Hannah are very dedicated and talented kids in acting and singing.  They are also extremely high achievers in academics. They have a great work ethic.”  He went on to say, “Each theatrical production creates its own family where oftentimes life-long friendships are formed.  There are never friendships anywhere else like those that are made in theatre.  For a show to work, actors and crew need to be able to trust each other; to be able to pull together as a team.  I think that after a show is done, many performers feel a great sense of loss.  But while it lasts, it’s a wonderful family to belong to.”

Anne Marie Mortensen (Oliver!) and Charles Robertson (Romeo and Juliet) co-direct this family-friendly pantomime version of Cinderella, the rags to riches story of a kind young girl forced to work from morning ‘til night by her mean stepsisters and stepmother.  Forced to wear rags and to sleep not in a bed but by the fireplace, she dreams of meeting the handsome Prince Charming.

But Prince Charming has problems of his own.  Prince Charming has no charm. He is a nerd. Boy is he a nerd!  A fun-filled treat for the whole family! Starring John Macpherson (Ren in Footloose) as the shy and awkward prince, and Sara Sturgeon (Oliver!) as the beautiful and kind-hearted Cinderella. Other cast members include John Farant as the malpractice-waiting-to-happen, Doctor Doc and Khira Wieting and Daniel Powell as the ugly stepsisters.  Try to guess which stepsister is really a girl.  Bryden Trapp is their conniving mother.  Ian Macpherson who starred as the Artful Dodger in Oliver! plays the long suffering servant to the prince.  The boot scene alone is worth the price of admission.

Allyson Foster plays the beautiful Fairy Godmother who has a few magic tricks up her sleeve.  Daniel Smith and Meg Morgan play the king and queen.  Catchy songs and silly dialogue make this a light treat for the Holiday season.  Ian Lamb, Eric Sturgeon, and Ted Mathers also star.  No actors, animals or pumpkins were harmed in this production.  Stage managed by Claire Morgan.  For more information and to purchase tickets please go to www.bottletreeinc.com.

Pre-show entertainment will feature songs by 18 year-old Hannah Smith, who teams up with Alex Whitehead. Her great contralto voice is sure to leave you wanting more.

Wellington Street Theatre Presents Beauty and the Beast for One Performance Only on July 27th!

One performance only!

The Wellington Street Theatre Project presents Beauty and the Beast at Sydenham Street United Church on Wednesday, July 27th at 2 pm.

General seating tickets are $12/per person and are available online at www.wellingtonst.net and www.bottletreeinc.com or at the door.


Beauty and the Beast
has been adapted for the stage by Charles Robertson, with music and lyrics by Michael K. Myers.  This is one of six fairy tales that Robertson and Myers have collaborated on.  These shows have been seen by thousands of kids across Ontario.

Directed by Anne Marie Mortensen and starring Megan Ready-Walters as Beauty.

Beauty’s father is a merchant whose wealth has been stolen by his unscrupulous partners.  Despondent, he seeks shelter during a storm in a magnificent castle.  In this castle lives a fearsome beast who to spare the merchant’s life makes him promise to send his youngest daughter, Beauty, to live with him.  The Beast is actually a handsome prince who has been the victim of a spell by a jealous witch.  In her heart, Beauty holds the key to set him free.

Director Anne Marie Mortensen says,

“Charles and Michael have created a wonderful story for the whole family.  There is comedy with the three clumsy suitors of Beauty and her two sisters.  There is the magic of the Beast’s castle and this is one of the classic romances in literature.”

She went on to say,

“In Megan Ready-Walters, we have a very talented young actress with a marvelous voice. Megan has recently won an award for her acting at the Sears Drama Festival and she was great as Sandy in K.C.V.I.’s ‘Grease.’  Her performance as the beautiful Lucy in Bottle Tree Productions’ ‘Sweeney Todd’ showed off her singing skills.”

The Wellington Street Theatre Project Presents For One Performance Only: Romeo and Juliet

One Performance Only!

The Wellington Street Theatre Project presents Shakespeare’s most popular play at Sydenham Street United Church for one performance only:

Wednesday, July 27th, 2011 at 7:30 pm

Tickets are $20/adults. $15/seniors & students. $12/children 12 and under.

Group rates available for eight or more. $10/person.

Tickets can be purchased online at www.bottletreeinc.com and www.wellingtonst.net or at the door.

Romeo and Juliet is Shakespeare’s popular story of young love set against a back drop of gang violence in Italy.  Two families; the Capulets and the Montagues are battling each other for control in the ancient city of Verona. Romeo and Juliet fall in love despite the fact that their families are sworn enemies.  Their secret romance turns the gears of this tragedy of ‘star-crossed lovers.’

Director Charles Robertson says, “Sydenham Street United Church is a great environment to do a classical play.  In many ways it mirrors old European theatres.”  Over the years, Romeo and Juliet has been performed in a multitude of environments, including theatres, parks and bridges.  Robertson went on to say that, “A friend of mine; Lynne Rafter, directed Romeo and Juliet in a former hostel in Toronto as a punk take on the bard’s work.  Many young people write poetry as a way of healing their wounded souls.  Romeo and Juliet rises above other hurting heart tales because the poetry with its rigid rules and rhythms much like a romantic ballad can more easily tug at the emotions.  Prose cannot possibly reach the heights of emotions like poetry can.  In Hannah Smith, who has won 13 awards for acting in her very young career and Alex Whitehead, an accomplished actor who also happens to be the current provincial fencing champion, we have two very talented leads.  These young actors are just the latest in a long line of talented young actors that I have had the pleasure of working with.”

17 Questions For 17-Year-Old Rising Star, Actress Hannah Smith

I have been following the acting career of Kingston, Ontario based rising star, Hannah Smith, for a couple of years and have been thoroughly impressed by her remarkable performances in Miss Julie, Ghost Of The Tree, Sweeney Todd, and A Tribute To Patsy Cline to name a few. She has also appeared in Sense and Sensibility, Sleeping Beauty, Til The Boys Come Home, and her latest play, Educating Rita, directed by Valerie Robertson for Theatre 5 has just completed a very successful run at the Baiden Street Theatre.

Hannah was an absolute revelation in Educating Rita, which was the best play I’ve seen in Kingston in ages! She and G. Robert Bowes were perfectly matched and gave fantastic performances!

The lovely Hannah, who is a 17-year-old student at Kingston Collegiate

Hannah Smith and Justin Robertson in Miss Julie

& Vocational Institute, has been acting in local theatre for almost ten years already and what I’m most struck by is her ability to perfect different accents and to convince her audience that she is many years older than she really is. She’s a superb young actress with an undoubtedly successful career in acting ahead of her.

I recently had the opportunity to talk with Hannah about her experiences in acting and what she hopes will be in store for her in the future.

1. Hannah, how old were you when you appeared in your first play?

I was eight years old. The play was “A Little Princess”, an adaptation of the Frances Hodgson Burnett story.

2. Have your parents encouraged you to pursue acting?

My parents certainly are not adverse to the idea. They have been very supportive, driving me to rehearsals for the last nine years.

3. Who is your acting coach and what can you tell me about him/her?

Charles Robertson has taught me theatre and acting for nine years. He’s very supportive and provides all sorts of opportunities for young people in theatre that they may not get with other people. Charles and Bottle Tree Productions are certainly a great part of the reason that I enjoy theatre so much.

4. You’re a wonderful singer. Have you taken singing lessons?

Thank you! Until late this fall, no. I’ve never had any formal vocal training, I just love to sing and do it all the time.

5. How many plays, in which tickets were sold, have you appeared in so far?

Oh wow. Let me count…33 in total, with one more in rehearsal right now.

6. Have you been featured in any movies? If so, what can you tell me about the differences between performing for the stage and screen?

I’ve completed filming for one low-budget film. There are many differences between film and theatre acting. When you’re acting on film, you can afford to be much more subtle. With theatre, smaller movements are lost, while in film every shift of the eye is seen. You also have to be much more conscious of being still and only moving when absolutely necessary. They’re very different, but both a lot of fun.

7. Will you share your most memorable acting experience to date and what made it so memorable?

One of the most memorable experiences I have had acting was during opening night of Sense and Sensibility. I played Marianne, and during a particularly emotional scene I ran offstage, in the process twisting my ankle and falling offstage. I had to continue the show and the rest of the run with a limp and a tenser bandage.

8. Is acting a career that you want to pursue as an adult?

I would love to pursue acting as an adult. It’s one of the only fields that I can see myself working in and enjoying myself.

Hannah in Til The Boys Come Home

9. What is it about acting that incites your passion?

I’m not sure what it is about acting and theatre that I like so much. I love having the opportunity to, for an hour or two, become a completely different person. There’s nothing quite like having the lights blinding you while you can feel the audience around you. If an actor ever tells you that they don’t like to be looked at, they’re lying. I think it’s just the combination of all the different aspects of theatre that I’m so passionate about.

10. What are some of your favourite plays that you haven’t yet had a chance to perform in?

I love Tennessee Williams, so The Glass Menagerie or Streetcar Named Desire would be up there on the list.

11. Who are some of your favourite actors and actresses?

I really admire classic film stars like Audrey Hepburn and Humphrey Bogart. The poise and class that they brought to film is hard to come by nowadays. Kate Winslet is another actress that I like to watch.

12. What traits do you respect the most in an actor?

Versatility and subtlety. I admire actors who are able to play many different roles and bring subtlety to each. It’s the small things that really bring characters to life.

13. What do you have coming up in the near future?

I’ve been cast as Rizzo in K.C.V.I.’s school musical this year, Grease. The show opens early in May. Before that I’m planning on producing and directing a show for the Sears Drama Festival, something I’m very involved with through school.

14. Do you have an agent? Are you looking for one?

At the moment, no, I don’t have an agent. But as I am now becoming more interested in pursuing acting as a career I am aware that finding representation is the next step.

15. Are you willing to relocate to Toronto or another big city in order to further your career?

In order to successfully work in entertainment, this sort of relocation is necessary and something that I would be willing to do when the time is right.

16. What are your career goals for the not too distant future?

Hannah as Mrs. Lovett in Sweeney Todd

Not too distant goals would probably include finding representation and surviving my final year of high school. Which I think could technically be considered a “career goal.”

17. Finally, what part is it that you feel that you were born to play?

That’s a tough question. Probably something along the lines of Lady Macbeth. I love how manipulative she is. And playing crazy is always fun.

Bottle Tree Productions Presents ‘Til The Boys Come Home

PRESS RELEASE
For Immediate Release
October 15th, 2010
Kingston, Ontario

Bottle Tree Productions is proud to present ‘Til The Boys Come Home at The Wellington Street Theatre, starring young guns: Tom Sinclair, Nick Carswell, Jacob Wilkins, Justin Robertson, Davin Allan, David Pearsall, Adam Elliot and Alex Whitehead; and talented young ladies: Megan Ready-Walters, Hannah Smith, Allyson Foster, Anna Kidd and Khira Weiting.

During the week of Remembrance Day – Monday, November 8th-Sunday, November 14th – Monday-Saturday @ 7 p.m.; Sunday matinee at 3 p.m. at The Wellington Street Theatre.

Written by Charles Robertson, ‘Til The Boys Come Home features songs and stories of the Second World War. Robertson says the play “starts off in 1939 when the dark clouds of war hang over Canada. The young men and women of a small town in Canada are getting ready for the incredible sacrifices that freedom demands.” The play spans the 6 years of the war. The play opens in a restaurant where the teens are spending a typical Saturday afternoon. It ends up being the last Saturday afternoon of their relative innocence. The audience learns about the characters and their relationships. When an army recruiter shows up everything is changed forever. Their lives will never be the same. Bottle Tree Productions producer Anne Mortensen says, “This play shows how people’s loyalties and friendships are tested, how in the intervening six years of the war, these teens become men and women, and how things are changed forever for them. Their lives and loves will never be the same.” Mortensen went on to say, “This is a very exciting play, very emotional, more like a movie than a play.”

Scully Love Promo Is Growing and Grateful For It!

For those of you who stop by this blog and think I’m just a blogger and book reviewer, you haven’t clicked on the tabs labeled About, Services, or Clients on my site. I realize that this website looks like a blog so I’m in the process of having a very talented website designer & developer create a fancy, new professional website for Scully Love Promo and I will be using my dot com URL when the website launches, which will hopefully be in August.

I have also created a Facebook page for Scully Love Promo and it has special content on it that you won’t find here or anywhere else. I am sharing great social media tips, links to the pages and websites of some talented, creative artists, as well as some local businesses who I have been assisting with their foray into social media marketing, as well as inviting authors and musicians to post information about their pages on our wall. I look forward to your questions, comments and our conversation there!

Scully Love Promo is very pleased to announce that author Cheryl Hiebert, who is writing a book called Losing Willow: Grieving The Loss Of An Animal Companion has just advanced to Round 3 of The Next Top Spiritual Author Contest! Round 3 includes only 25 authors who will now have to submit another couple of chapters of their books to the panel of judges who will judge them further in this competition. I wish Cheryl all the luck in the world and I know that her book is going to be a big success because it will touch so many people who will benefit from its creation.

I am also happy and proud to welcome Irish alternative folk/rock singer-songwriter Mark Dignam to my client roster. Mark has just finished a successful tour as the opening act for The Swell Season; he is a long-time member of Fairplay Collective with fellow band mates Jenna Nicholls, Michael Brunnock and Brendan O’Shea; and he will be playing at the Rockwood Music Hall in New York City on July 22nd as well as some shows in the Pittsburgh, PA area this August. From Mark’s MySpace profile:

“Mark Dignam is an Irish born, US based songwriter who began as a busker on the streets of Dublin. Dignam’s songs are always intelligent and insightful, balanced with an infectious sing-along quality and that irresistible Irish wit… His sound draws comparisons to Van Morrison, Dylan, and Tim Buckley as well as the more contemporary songwriters of today like Elvis Costello, Billy Bragg, and Sun Volt.

Live, Dignam delivers powerful, three-dimensional performances, a songwriter’s songwriter, and yet an accessible gem. He engages audiences with warm melody, lyricism, strong personality and has been invited to open for or tour with Billy Bragg, David Gray, Richard Thompson, Joan Armatrading, Vic Chestnut, The Frames, Paddy Casey and a host of others…”

Do drop by and visit Mark on MySpace, Facebook, or Twitter and witness his beautifully crafted songs and friendly & humor-filled Irish personality for yourself!

A new Facebook page has been created for Bottle Tree Productions, which is the Kingston, ON based theatre company who currently occupy The Wellington Street Theatre. Sleeping Beauty started yesterday at 3
pm and shows run Tuesday through to Saturday afternoons at 3 pm for two weeks with two weeks of evening shows from Thursdays to Saturdays at 7:30 pm. See how a royal messenger named Jack almost brings down the whole kingdom, getting it shut down for a hundred years. Comedy romance and music! Fun for the whole family!

I am very proud of my mother, Marilyn Bode, for accepting the position of Director of Field Ministries in Canada for CONCERN International so that she can raise money and awareness for an orphanage in Aqua Prieta, Mexico called Brazos de Amor (Arms of Love), that is very close to her heart. She and my father volunteered there in the winters of 2008 and 2009 when they resided in Green Valley, Arizona for the months of February and March, as they do every year now. We have created a Facebook page for Brazos de Amor and invite you to stop by and learn more.

Scully Love Promo is also excited about beginning work with Kingston, ON musician Glenna Green and Savannah, GA musician Philip Palmer and his band, Port City Music. I’ll tell you more about them soon!

I hope you all have a very joy-filled summer and want to thank everyone who has subscribed to my blog, both through this site and through Networked Blogs on Facebook. I’m delighted to know that you’re interested!
