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.”

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.”
