Double Bill: Newfie Electra & Music for the Changing Voice

Newfie Electra
Written by Allison Basha
Co-Created by Mary Ellen MacLean

Music For The Changing Voice:
My Grandfather's Cello And All The Tiny Pieces

Created by Alyssa Wright

Five Points Theatre
Barrie, Ontario, Canada

Newfie Electra is a modern day adaptation of a classic, Electra, by Sophocles. We are in a small out port fishing village in Newfoundland. The main character, Tanya, is grieving the death of her fadder at the hand of her mudder. She spends day in and day out submerged at the fish plant plotting next step. She wants revenge. Between jigs and the reels, we explore the storytelling of this wacky character and what it's like to live in her shoes. Will she honour her fadder and avenge his death? Only time will tell.

Music For The Changing Voice: My Grandfather's Cello And All The Tiny Pieces: Performing her original songs, music she was raised with, and even some tunes by the late Don Wright himself, Alyssa weaves together a tale about growing up in his musical shadow and under his silencing oppression – then eventually using the cello and the other tools she’d inherited to find her own voice, heal the past, turn even the most shattered bits into art.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
