The Amaryllis At The Firehall Arts Centre November 12 – 22, 2020 – Cancelled Due To New COVID Restrictions

26 Oct

Well it’s been some time since we’ve written about upcoming events and as as an ardent support of arts in the community, we are pleased to feature The Amaryllis coming to The Firehall Arts Centre November 12 – 22, 2020.

The Firehall Arts Centre and The Search Party are pleased to produce and present the world premiere of The Amaryllis. Written by Michele Riml and directed by The Search Party’s Artistic Director, Mindy Parfitt, the production transports audiences into the fascinating, quirky world of Lucy and Jeremy Keener. Lucy is a terrifically talented voice over artist and Jeremy is her troubled agent, who would sooner jump off a cliff before ever following a dream of his own. Sister and brother for better or for worse, these two are inextricably bound. The amaryllis plant – a mysterious gift from a mysterious giver – takes on a strange power over their lives. The Amaryllis is mystery about what it really takes to grow, and a comedy about what it really takes to change.

Artistic Producer Donna Spencer says the show is “Named after one of my favourite flowers, the play reminds us how challenging and fragile change can be and how difficult it is to undertake in isolation. Not unlike the needs of the flower and the needs we all have to grow and become who we are, the character of Jeremy requires support and encouragement to step out of the safety of the world he and his sister Lucy have created together. I am so pleased to bring this work to the stage at a time when we all need encouragement to grow and make the changes we can during this global pandemic, and to partner with The Search Party on its realization.”

Note: The Firehall Arts Centre has a COVID-19 Safety Plan which includes limiting seating to 50 people. Further, staff, volunteers and patrons are required to wear masks. To see all of their safety protocols, visit Firehall Arts Centre COVID-19.
