The South Shore’s Something Completely Different Players are teaming up with the Mahone Bay Centre in April to present the independent production, HEAVEN CALLING the Mutt’s Nuts, as a fundraiser for the Centre.

For “anyone that enjoys edgy stuff,” the play, written by Dave Brumwell, has Mature subject matter, some sexual overtones and colourful language, and is described as “not to be missed entertainment” for those 16 years of age and over.

“There are very few fringe type productions for people to witness on the South Shore,” said Brumwell. “Obviously, not everyone wants to witness, strong language and Mature Content being acted out in a live stage performance. However, there is nothing revealing in a sexual nature and the 16 years plus warning is all that's needed,” he said.

A Comedic Drama, HEAVEN CALLING, the Mutt’s Nuts is a two-hour theatrical performance will take the audience on a journey through many emotions, said Brumwell. “A story that entwines reality with fantasy - Hilarious comedy with heartbreaking tragedy - Ordinary earthly life with heavenly happenings - Adventure and drama with romance and break down.”

The play has a cast of fifteen talented and seasoned actors, is being directed by Anne Stockdate, who Brumwell says is a “wonderful director, plus light and sound engineers, all of whom are giving their specialized gifts to bring this rather unique production to the fore.”

The play opens on April 4 at 7 p.m. for a seven-performance schedule. Evening performances are also scheduled for April 5, 6, 12 and 13 at 7 p.m. with matinee performances on April 7 and 14 at 2 p.m.

Tickets are available at the Mahone Bay Centre (902-624-0890P) as well as Kinburn Pharmasave in Mahone Bay. Admission is $15

“As always, places like the Mahone Bay Centre only survive by attracting people in and we would like to help them to do that,” said Brumwell.
