Rock the House/A Rock-and-Roll Cabaret TLC Productions
September 12, www.cantonvillagetheater.org


The Village Theater at Cherry Hill won’t be the same after TLC Productions “rocks the house” as it brings back its rock-and-roll cabaret.  This show revolves around two people starting a rock club and looking for a theme to build it around. There will be six different types of rock music presented: Theater Rock, Motown, Beach/Summer, Piano Bar, Movies Rock and Cars. The songs will be performed by a live rock band and the music will get the feet tapping and pull the audience out of their seats.  One 90-minute performance, including an intermission, at 8:00 pm on Saturday, September 12, 2015 is being presented.  The cabaret will showcase the musical talent of musicians: Dave Schmidt of Northville, MI on Guitar, Dave Skrzynski of Royal Oak, MI on Bass Guitar, Cheryl Chanko of South Lyon, MI on Keyboard, and Bob Espinoza of Canton, MI on Electric Drums. Several of these musicians are a part of the local cover band, Damage Control.

Starring as vocalists in the performance are Tim Chanko of Canton, MI; Maureen Paraventi of Redford, MI; and Kara Fay Cardella of Ypsilanti, MI.  Acting in the performance are Leanne Young of South Lyon, MI and Ken Overwater of Dearborn, MI.

“With our second rock-and-roll cabaret, we have established a new tradition at The Village Theater. Rock music appeals to a wide variety of individuals and we look forward to entertaining them,” state the co-founders of TLC Productions, Tim Chanko, Linda Pohl, and 
Christopher Tremblay.

This Cabaret was conceived and directed by musician Tim Chanko. Tim is a member of the local cover band, Damage Control.

"Tell Me, Berenice Abbott"
Exhibition Dates:   August 3 - September 27, 2015

 
This month the Gallery @ VT will showcase “Tell Me, Berenice Abbott” a Digital Art Photography exhibit featuring the work of Timothy Ruane.
 
Mr. Ruane taught photography at the Edmund Burke School in Washington D.C. and worked as the chief copy editor in the editorial department of The Washington Post, where he also worked as a freelance photographer.  "I edit (manipulate) my photographs aggressively, changing contrast, brightness and hue without hesitation.  I value pictures that are hard to take more than easier ones—action shots more than stills, for example.  I am drawn to the unconventional and the abstract" says Ruane.


He has exhibited his fine art digital photography in London, Izmir Turkey, New York, Washington D.C. and a number of other U.S. cities.  His work has been published in The Washington Post, New York Review Books, Simon & Schuster as well as The Good Men Project, Whisperings and a number of other journals.
 
Mr. Ruane has written and directed three independent short narrative movies, a two-minute silent and many experimental films. Currently, he is filming and editing a short narrative film: “Sometimes the Window Is Blue.”

"As the philosopher is interested in truth, I am interested in beauty.  Good art can do many things, but it cannot bore." - Tim Ruane

Tim Ruane’s Photo “Guard at the National Gallery of Art” is one of the featured works at The Village Theater’s Gallery @VT.
