Chris Brookes & Margaret Hitchens to perform in Petty Harbour CultureDays
This Sunday, September 26, well-known local storytellers Chris Brookes and Margaret Hitchens will be sharing tall tales and old-fashioned recitations at the historic Chafe's Landing in Petty Harbour.
Chris Brookes is an award-winning independent radio producer whose documentary features are heard in the U.S.A, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, England, Sweden, Finland, Canada and The Netherlands. He has also produced documentaries for network television, and is a published author and playwright. He seems to be obsessed with narrative, which makes him keep telling stories in hopes of one day getting them right.
A crowd favourite at the St. John’s Storytelling Circle, and star of the annual Recitation Night, Margaret Hitchens delights audiences with her renditions of classic English monologues and recitations, including the ongoing adventures of Albert Ramsbottom and Samuel Small. Margaret has been involved for many years with the Kittiwake Dance Theatre, and is the company’s annual choice to play the role of the Grandmother in their Christmas production of The Nutcracker.
Chafe's Landing is the oldest home in Petty Harbour and was built in the 19th century. It is located just over the bridge in the heart of Petty Harbour.
