Crackie: An RCA Fundraiser Film Screening
Approximate running time: 1 hour and 30 minutes
3 Victoria Street
St. John's NL A1C 3V2
RCA is thrilled to announce our next fundraiser: a film screening of Crackie written and directed by Sherry White.
Life in a small town isn’t easy, but for Mitsy (Meghan Greeley) it's especially rough. Abandoned by her crack-addicted mother (Cheryl Wells), Mitsy is left to be brought up by her temperamental grandmother, Bride (Mary Walsh), who has good intentions but is harshly overbearing. Mitsy dreams of becoming a hairdresser, but her current emotional well-being revolves around a small dog named Sparky. After Bride agrees to let Mitsy keep the dog, the teen tries desperately to give Sparky a comfortable home. But Mitsy's life is shaken once more when her troubled mother returns home. Mitsy is thrilled to have her mother home again, but Bride wants nothing to do with her deadbeat daughter. The constant turmoil and conflict has created a total dysfunctional family. At the same time, Mitsy has discovered her emerging sexuality and is developing a crush on a young man who has no future. For Mitsy it ís a question of how do you hold onto love and hope when you're surrounded by hopelessness?
Join us on April 30th at 8 pm in the mainstage theatre for a screening of the film Crackie. Tickets are $50 which will include a complimentary bag of popcorn and a talk back with Shery White and Meghan Greeley, moderated by RCA Interim Artistic Animateur Laura Williams. Donations from this fundraiser will go directly to the continued operations of RCA and The LSPU Hall.
