An Evening of Poetry & Music with Rodney DeCroo:

“Dr. Fishpants Poems About Magical Creatures” Premiere Screening + Concert

This event has passed

Lauded Canadian singer-songwriter, poet, actor and playwright, Rodney DeCroo stretches his story-telling wings and introduces us to Dr Theodore J. Fishpants (Dean Paul Gibson), a self-proclaimed “world-renowned sociologist” and local gasbag cafe-squatter. Fishpants hires Lucy (Lili Robinson), a young barista, to film readings of his poems about the magical creatures that he insists walk among us.

Dr. Fishpants is a four part, 36-minute web-series adapted from an upcoming book of poetry, Dr. Theodore Fishpants Poems About Magical Creatures written by DeCroo. Director Cheyenne Rouleau deftly explores themes of acceptance, imagination and healing through this odd pairing and unlikely friendship.

This world premiere screening in the presence of the production team will be followed by a 30 minute intermission and then Rodney DeCroo’s first live concert since the start of the pandemic. Rodney will be joined by cellist Clara Shandler and pianist Róisín Adams to perform a magical set of his acclaimed songs and poems.
