Play: Ghost of a Chance opens
The Westside Theatre Foundation is presenting our first play of 2015 onstage at the historic Strand Theatre in downtown Vicksburg. Ghost of a Chance was written by Flip Kobler and Cindy Marcus, the husband and wife team who cowrote several Disney animated films (Lady and the Tramp 2 and The Lion King 2) as well as an episode of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine.

The show features a cast of six: Stacie Schrader, Alex Hill, Carolyn Gent, Nicholas Ford, Cathy Sanford, and Jack Burns. According to Jack Burns, who is directing, “we really wanted to do something with a small cast to start the year.”

“What is it about? Some would say it’s about the emotional transformation of all the characters. Others would say it’s about love after death, a deer head, and a bag full of money.”

The play will be presented Friday and Saturday, March 6 & 7 and Friday and Saturday, March 13 & 14. Curtain is 7:30 and tickets are $10. Tickets are available in advance at Highway 61 Coffeehouse.

Call 601 301 3158 for reservations or more information.

Film: PATRICK’S DAY: the Feature Film Project
Come vote on whether you believe this film deserves a theatrical release. Be part of a national screening committee one night only here at the Strand.
(Ireland) 1 hr 40 min
Directed by Terry McMahon
When a young man with mental health issues becomes intimate with a suicidal flight attendant his obsessive mother enlists a dysfunctional cop to separate them.  Patrick is a warm, open twenty-six year old virgin schizophrenic. Pills and his mother’s protection mean he is no threat to himself or anyone else. Until he falls in love. The object of his desire, Karen, a suicidal flight
attendant, has no idea the intimacy she shares with Patrick might reintroduce her to living. Patrick’s obsessive mother Maura doesn’t realize her own misguided love may be more dangerous to pull Karen and Patrick apart, she enlists the help of dysfunctional detective Freeman, who will use his position to help her, for a price. A provocative and heart-breaking love story about the right
to intimacy for everyone, Patrick’s Day proves, when it comes to love, we’re all a little crazy.

Opera Oncreen:  Il Trovatore
Sunday, March 8 our auditorium will reverbrate to the sounds of Il Trovatore. Anna Netrebko and Plácido Domingo head an impressive ensemble onducted by Daniel Barenboim in this musical feast from Berlin’s Staatsoper im Schiller Theater. Netrebko, “in devastating form” (The Times), draws a compelling and immediate portrait of Leonora from beginning to end. At her side, the “exceptional ” Marina Prudenskaya excels as the vengeful gypsy Azucena whose performance emanates “volcanic heat from the depths of her mezzosoprano” and portrays “every shade of tenderness and ruthlessness” (Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung). Plácido Domingo, once the most-soughtafter Manrico of his generation, stars for the first time as Conte di Luna, radiating the “Domingo warmth of past times” with “his magical stage presence [that] ennobles every evening of opera” (Die Welt). To complete the foursome, Gaston Rivero is a delightful Manrico “with an attractive timbre, well-judged phrasing, fine legato” (Opernglas). Daniel Barenboim’s debut in conducting this work is “positively sensational ” (Berliner Zeitung), “creat[ing] wonderful moments of soft tone … and reveal[ing] a constantly fascinating Verdi” Süddeutsche Zeitung). Internationally acclaimed director Philipp Stölzl creates a colorful, Alice in Wonderland-inspired production,
brilliantly realizing Verdi’s shifts between past and present, in a “glamorous display of virtuosic style” (Le Monde).

The opera includes light buffet during intermission. Cash bar. Tickets are $15 in advance at Highway 61 Coffeehouse and $18 at the door. 2 PM.

Award Winning film at the Strand

poster winter sleep slide

 

Join us at the Strand
Saturday, February 14 – 7 PM:
Winter Sleep
Winner of the Golden Palm at 2014 Cannes Film Festival.
Turkish with English subtitles. An actor, his wife, and sister-in-law spend an intense Winter in a snowbound hotel in Anatolia. (186 minutes)

88% – Rotten Tomatoes / Roger Ebert – 4 stars

Ceylan’s camerawork and editing are terrifically alert – Glenn Kinney
 
Winter Sleep is an engrossing work, a finely observed portrait of collapsing social contracts, public and private.This Cannes Palme d’Or winner reconfirms Ceylan as a film-maker at the peak of his powers – singular, insightful, compassionate. – Mark Kermode – The Guardian
…a richly engrossing and ravishingly beautiful magnum opus… tunnels into the everyday existence of a middle-aged former actor turned comfortably situated hotel owner — and emerges with a multifaceted study of human frailty whose moral
implications resonate far beyond its remote Turkish setting. Simultaneously vast and intimate, sprawling and incisive, and talky in the best possible sense, the film will be confined to the ultra-discerning end of the arthouse market, but abundant rewards lie in wait for those who seek it out

Belle and Sebastien
$7 at the door / $5 in advance.
A beloved story of the resourceful young Sebastian and the giant mountain sheepdog he tames and calls Belle, this heartwarming new feature film is set during WWII in the snowy Alps of occupied France, on the border of Switzerland. Sebastian, lonely and dreaming of the day his mother will return from America for him, befriends “the beast” the local farmers are convinced is killing their sheep – an enormous yet gentle sheepdog who quickly becomes the boy’s best friend and protector. With Nazis in the village rooting out the resistance fighters helping Jewish refugees cross the border, Belle and Sebastian’s loyalty – to each other and the village that’s embraced them both – will be put to the test.

The “Best” is Coming:

This is my favorite time of year. Not the holidays – those are over. It’s the time when all the lists of best films of the year come out in the major papers and international film magazines. I track down all the lists I can find, and study them carefully. I resolve to see as many “bests” as I can, and as part of my self defined job as film programmer for the Strand, I try to find some of those “bests” for us to share. I am hoping to repeat last year’s coup of bringing to Vicksburg the film that wins the Best Foreign Language Oscar.

I have my theory about what it will be, and have already spoken with its distributor about bringing it here soon.

This year an honorary life achievement Academy Award is going to Hiyao Miyazaki, a terrific Japanese Animation director. I am trying to line up one of his films that did win the Oscar for Best Animated Film a few years back.

Stay tuned. Daniel W. Boone
