“Transplant” by Mihal Zada ~ Directed by Matthew Sheahan. 

Lydia – Alexandra Bell

George – Scott Roodvoets

Paula (Officer Rezwani)- Ruth Laliberte

Andrew (Officer Lewis) – Joshua Kelly

Lydia is spending some quiet time at home while her husband George is off at the cottage with his cousin Steve, when two police officers arrive with some horrible news.  There’s been an accident and George is left incomplete.  Can something that is lost really be replaced?  Can we ever be made whole again?  Does it matter where the parts come from?  George returns home to a partner who is trying to make him come to grips with his alterations, but will he return the favor?  Can they survive the transplant?


“Jam Jar” by Peter Coy ~ Directed by Bill McMahon. 

PHD Student – Wendy Roy

Subject 1 – Sylvia Wan

Subject 2 – Penny Barker

Subject 3 – Heather Muir

TLGA – Margaret Ruttan.

A key is a device that is used to operate a lock. The key serves as a security token for access to the locked area; only persons having the correct key can open the lock and gain access. Locks and keys have managed to infuse themselves into every aspect of our lives. Join our PHD student as she conducts her experiment to determine whether the participants reveal themselves as locks or keys.


“Roadside Attraction” by Richard Lummiss ~ Directed by Karen Lupu-Jacobsohn 

Petra – Dejaye Sproat

Martha – Lynette Thibeau

John – Bryan Coates

Larry – Scott Roodvoets .

Petra is the owner of Pete’s Big Beaver Café, open to travelers on a cold and stormy Valentine’s night. Martha and John stop in on their way through town, as well as Larry, a long haul truck driver. This intimate look at relationships is a refreshingly sweet glimpse into possible turning points.

The Colborne Library Ukulele Band
Jul 28 @ 2:00 PM

The Colborne Library Ukulele Band (The C.L.U.B.) taught by David Hayes and Wendy Bellan is a performing group consisting of 40 ukulele players from the age of 10 to 80 years old. Classes are taught for both beginners and advanced every Saturday morning. The group started in 2014 and unlike many ukulele groups this performing group also features solo singers. The group was funded by Mary Norton CEO of the Colborne Library and she also provided the space to hold classes. Other financial supporters of the group have been The Northumberland Veterinary Clinic, The Lions Club and The Rotary Club. The repertoire consists of music from the 1930’s to today’s music.

The group performs at various events throughout the Northumberland and Quinte area.

The philosophy for the creation of the group was to teach people the ukulele and perform concerts with the added bonus of a social group to give, especially older people, an environment to share music together and a reason to get outside of the home. Both the social and musical aspects have grown so that now the performing group is at a very high level of musicianship.
