It’s been a busy few months for Molly. Following the filming of Owl River Runners in New Brunswick, Molly headed to the US for a month-long residency in New York City and Philadelphia, where she made many friends and fans.
November will see Molly continue her acting career as she returns to the East Coast to play the lead in DAWG, a short film written and directed by Shelley Thompson (Barb Lahey, Trailer Park Boys). DAWG is a bittersweet story of friendship, grief, and moving on: Tilley (Thomason) is an isolated young musician who must come to terms with love and loss when she moves from the small-town to the city.
With years in front of the camera and recent forays into direction, production of music videos, and a short documentary, Shelley Thompson is shifting behind the camera with fabulous support from Jeff Wheaton as DOP, Sarah Dunsworth as first AD, mentor Jessica Brown, and new producer Gay Hauser as the producing team. The score is being done by Asif Illyas and will include two new songs by Molly. DAWG has, already, a first rate pedigree. For more info about DAWG, visit their Indiegogo fundraising campaign.
While back home in Nova Scotia this fall, Molly will also perform at Halifax Pop Explosion, the Bluebird North Songwriters Circle, a fundraiser for DAWG, and at Nova Scotia Music Week. See below for tour dates and ticket information.

Thank you ALL so much for your awesome submissions. I feel like I got to live out so many cool summers just through reading about your adventures. If you’d like to read these awesome stories you can check them out at www.mollythomason.com/stories.
Some of you asked us to keep your tales private and unpublished. Although summer is a beautiful and fun time, some stories are out of our control and leave us blinking and questioning in the sun. One of those very stories really moved me and I’d like to thank Kalli Frissell for writing in. I’m very excited to announce that Kalli will be taking home the $500 and donating it to the “Spirit of Adriana Rajotte Scholarship Fund”. Congrats Kalli, and thank you for putting this towards such a good cause.
Happy fall everyone!
