Assassinating Thomson

A Royal Manitoba Theatre Centre Production

Thursday, February 16, 2023

Shamrock Centre - Killarney Foundation Community Hall

Doors open 7:00 pm

Performance at 7:30 pm

Assassinating Thomson is a one man play written and performed by Bruce Horak, a well-established theatre and visual artist who lost 90% of his vision after a childhood battle with cancer.

The play is named for an unsolved mystery in Canadian art history - the mysterious drowning in 1917 of Group of Seven precursor and iconic painter Tom Thomson in an Ontario lake. The mystery takes you from the tiny community of Canoe Lake to our nation's capital, and eventually to the world stage. Art, politics, greed, ambition, love and murder are intertwined. Tom Thomson's story is a tangled one, but we're in the good hands of a brilliant storyteller.

Bruce captures the mystery in a stunning monologue about Canadian art and artists, and during the performance he also paints a group portrait of the audience before him. At the end of the performance, Bruce auctions off the painting and donates the proceeds to charity.

Tickets are $30 adults and $20 youth 12-17. Tickets can be purchased on

Small Glories

Saturday, March 11, 2023

Shamrock Centre - Killarney Foundation Community Hall

Doors open at 7 pm

Concert begins at 7:30 pm

Roots powerhouse duo The Small Glories are Cara Luft & JD Edwards, a musical tour-de-force partnership planted on the Canadian Prairies. With a stage banter striking a unique balance between slapstick and sermon, these veteran singer-songwriters have a way of making time disappear, rooms shrink, and audiences feel as though they are right there on the stage with the band.

On record, Luft and Edwards take the musical synergy honed from hundreds of shows together, and expand it into a new soundscape amplified by pounding drums and other textural embellishments which only reinforce the magic of their innate chemistry — a chemistry labeled the “Lennon-McCartney syndrome,” by Americana UK, writing, “Some things just work together... to witness a performance by The Small Glories is a rare opportunity to experience that indefinable quality that creates perfection.”

Luft and Edwards duplicate and reinforce each others’ many strengths and yet allow their distinct personalities to shine through, resulting in a live show that is as heartwarming as it is hilarious, as finger-picking proficient as it is relatable, and as Canadian as, well... it’s very Canadian. But that hasn’t stopped ‘em from winning over audiences from Nashville to the Australian Outback. The duo won "Artist of the Year" at the International Folk Awards in New Orleans 2020, with their highly anticipated sophomore album “Assiniboine & The Red” garnering 3 Canadian Folk Music Awards, a JUNO Award nomination, Critics' Choice for 'Album of the Year' in Penguin Eggs Magazine, and captured the #1 Folk/Roots album spot on the national earshot! radio charts.

Tickets are $30 adults and $20 youth 12-17. Tickets can be purchased on
