A look at up­com­ing arts and nd en­ter­tain­ment events in the Annnapo­lis Val­ley:

O Mis­tress Moon

O Mis­tress Moon is a col­lec­tion of two cen­turies of Noc­turnes and night-in­spired music from com­posers Field, Chopin, Scri­abin, Bar­ber, De­bussy, Ravel, Brit­ten and cur­rent Juno award win­ning com­poser Derek Charke.

This music prom­ises to trans­port you to the moon and back on a peace­ful, thought-pro­vok­ing jour­ney. Jen­nifer King will bring the music to Sea-Esta, 1454 Pereau Rd., in Can­ning, on March 18. Doors open at 1:30 p.m. for a 2 p.m. per­for­mance.

A CD of King’s re­cent record­ing, O Mis­tress Moon, will be avail­able for pur­chase at the con­cert.

En­er­getic and in­sight­ful, King is a ver­sa­tile pi­anist who is in high de­mand as a per­former, teacher, ad­ju­di­ca­tor, and coach; she has firmly es­tab­lished her­self as a sought-af­ter tal­ent across At­lantic Canada. She can be heard in con­cert along­side many of Canada’s most re­spected singers and mu­si­cians in many of At­lantic Canada’s con­cert se­ries and on CBC.

In this Academy Award nominee for Best Pic­ture, Steven Spiel­berg di­rects Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks in a thrilling drama about the un­likely part­ner­ship be­tween The Washington Post’s Katharine Gra­ham ( Streep), the first fe­male pub­lisher of a ma­jor Amer­i­can news­pa­per, and ed­i­tor Ben Bradlee (Hanks), as they race to catch up with The New York Times to ex­pose a mas­sive cover-up of govern­ment se­crets that spanned three decades and four U.S. pres­i­dents.

Aca­dia Per­form­ing Arts se­ries presents Inside/Out

The Aca­dia Per­form­ing Arts Se­ries presents Inside/ Out, a prison me­moir by Pa­trick Keat­ing at the Fes­ti­val The­atre in Wolfville on March 17 at 7: 30 p.m. It’s a pro­duc­tion by Ne­world The­atre in as­so­ci­a­tion with Main Street The­atre and Ur­ban Crawl.

Keat­ing is kind, soft- spo­ken and sin­cere. Inside/ Out is his real-life story of years spent in and out of Canada’s pen­i­ten­tiary sys­tem. And that’s the thing — you look at Keat­ing and think, ‘this guy robbed a bank?’ Keat­ing’s hon­est and en­gag­ing de­liv­ery of his funny, sad, and stir­ring true story helps dis­man­tle our ideas of what a ‘crim­i­nal’ looks like — and helps us bet­ter un­der­stand how lan­guage, race and class play a very real part in our lives as Cana­di­ans. It’s about a man’s search for com­mu­nity: the com­mu­nity of the street, the com­mu­nity of prison, and of the the­atre.

Inside/ Out was writ­ten and per­formed by Keat­ing.

Tick­ets: $26 adults, $20 dents.

Fire­fighter Dan Boyd, who is the fundrais­ing chair­man, said he’s al­ready sent out spon­sor­ship let­ters to area busi­nesses in hopes of gar­ner­ing sup­port for their cause.

At Jack’s Gallery Ru­mors at Cen­tre Stage

at

Aca­dia Univer­sity Stu­dio Art and Jack’s Gallery at 450 Main St., in Wolfville, presents Hay­don Ali: The Gar­den un­til April 29.

Ali is a fourth-year so­ci­ol­ogy stu­dent at Aca­dia Univer­sity who is mi­nor­ing in stu­dio art. This ex­hi­bi­tion rep­re­sents a cul­mi­na­tion of his par­tic­i­pa­tion in an in­de­pen­dent study course, with his pro­fes­sor Ju­dith Leidl.

The Gar­den was in­spired by flow­ers dis­cov­ered in the var­i­ous coun­tries Ali lived in grow­ing up. These flo­rals aim to con­vey a sense of the tex­tures, colours, and fra­grances from his mem­o­ries as an ex­pat youth over­seas.

Cen­treStage The­atre takes the edge off the win­ter blahs with Neil Si­mon’s farce Ru­mors.

At a large, tastefully ap­pointed Sne­den’s Land­ing town­house, the deputy mayor of New York City has shot him­self on the night of his 10th wed­ding an­niver­sary party. Though only a flesh wound, the four cou­ples in­vited ex­pe­ri­ence a se­vere at­tack of far­ci­cal ‘ cover-up’.

Lawyer Ken and his wife Chris ar­rive to find the deputy mayor bleed­ing in an­other room and no sign of his wife. They must get the “story” straight be­fore the other guests ar­rive. As the con­fu­sions and mis­com­mu­ni­ca­tions mount, the evening spins off into hi­lar­ity...and that’s even be­fore the cops ar­rive!

Re­main­ing shows are March 9, 10, 16, 17, 23, and 24, with doors open­ing for the evening per­for­mances at 6:45 p.m. Mati­nees will be held March 11, 18 and 25, with doors open­ing at 1:15 p.m.

Tick­ets are: adults $15; se­niors/stu­dents $12; chil­dren age 12 and un­der, $5. Cen­treStage takes cash or cheques only. Reser­va­tions are held un­til 15 min­utes be­fore show time.

Please note there is a coarse lan­guage ad­vi­sory for this show.

Call 902-678-8040 for reser­va­tions.
