Lorne Elliott brings show to Georgetown’s Kings Playhouse
One-man event features comedy, music theatre
Canadian humorist, storyteller, musician and playwright Lorne Elliott is bringing his show of comedy and music theatre to the Kings Playhouse in Georgetown, July 17, 8 p.m.
Tickets are available through the theatre box office.
Elliott’s concert performance is a selection of his current monologues and songs dealing with life experience. Creating new stage material about having to redefine priorities in view of life events is a welcome challenge to this writer and stage performer who enjoys shaking the perceived wisdom of the world around him.
His one-man show presentation is delightfully foolish, witty and thought-provoking. Combining dry humour with musical parodies and skits. Lorne Elliott is a shrewd observer of the human animal.
“Often self-deprecating, always silly and never profane, Elliott’s funny is family friendly,” says a release.
For the past 26 years, Elliott has been touring and performing in concert in theatres and arts centres across Canada, the U.S. and Australia. Regularly featured on TV on such programs as “The Just For Laughs Festival” and comedy variety specials in Canada and the U.S.
For 11 seasons, ending in the fall of 2006, “Madly Off In All Directions” was his own CBC Radio Comedy Series. He is currently developing new projects. Also a playwright, he received the Playwrights Guild of Canada 2012 Best New Musical Award for his play “Jamie Rowsell Lives”.
His first novel, “Beach Reading”, was published in July 2013 and was selected as a finalist by Quebec Writers Federation for the Hugh MacLennan Fiction prize. A new novel, titled “The Goat in The tree” was launched in Toronto in March 2014.
This past year, he has been busy writing a musical, a novel and plays.
In addition, his rehearsed public play-reading of a new comedy titled “Mom Runs Amok” at Hudson Village Theatre was a re-sounding success and will be produced this fall in Ontario and Quebec.
In June his play “How I Broke in Showbiz” was be produced in Hudson as part of Arts Alive Quebec, an English Language Arts Network (ELAN) initiative.
During his summer stay in P.E.I. this year, Elliott will be working with various actors and musicians on a new project.
Lorne Elliott will showcase his broad range of talents on stage at the Kings Playhouse in Georgetown on Friday evening.
