Tales from the Neighbourhood: Concerto and Shenanigans at Sunset

Thu, Feb 16 / 7 pm
Directed by Ivan Hughes
2016, Canada, 46 min

Over the past several years MTS Stories From Home has sparked the creation of hundreds of hours of new intensely local TV  programs featuring research into Winnipeg and Manitoba history. This body of work, unique in vision and vast in scope has supported local filmmakers as they tell stories that may not have otherwise been produced.

Introduced by Victoria Sparks, Ivan Hughes and  Hans Peper, producer for Oak Bank Dinner Theatre

Victoria Sparks is a percussionist with the Manitoba Chamber Orchestra who is given the opportunity to perform as the soloist in the world premiere of a new composition. As the date of the concert nears she must work with the orchestra, memorize her parts, overcome her fears and prepare to take her place at the front of the stage. There are no guarantees of success but sometimes it’s your turn to shine.

Plays With:
Shenanigans at Sunset / Directed by Kayla Jeanson, 2016, Canada, 22 min / A whimsical lamentation on a seemingly bygone era, this film follows a quirky dinner theatre troupe in the small town of Oak Bank, Manitoba, as it prepares for its 23rd season. With a cast of 20 members and 14 sold out shows every year, Oak Bank United Church’s dinner theatre is a remarkable group of volunteer  producers, directors, performers, ushers, cooks, and dishwashers. At the heart of the film is their passionate, sustained dedication to their quirky community, demonstrating a way of life that may fade with time.
