Of Eyebrows and Accents

George Spelvin’s review of The Foreigner from the Buzz

December 1995—THERE IS NOTHING LIKE GOOD AMATEUR theatre. It’s inexpensive and accessible, and what the players lack in technique they make up in enthusiasm- an enthusiasm that permeated ACT’s new production of Larry Shue’s The Foreigner.

From bad accents to major eyebrow acting, the cast and crew brought a lot of joy to their production- a joy that, despite a slow pace and an awful first twenty minutes, made for an entertaining evening.

Welcome to our first, and much sweated over newsletter. If I were being paid by the hour to produce this, I could retire after the first issue. However, I am regarding this job as a learning process (believe me, it is!), and am trying to keep a sense of humour about it.

If you would like to contribute to further editions of ACT ONE, please pass your contributions on to me. We’re looking for anything to do with the world of entertainment, articles that are amusing and / or informative. Critiques of theatre, film etc, plays etc.- the editor

Our Town, by A Community Theatre

Sean McQuaid’s review of Our Town from the Buzz

June 1995—The May 11-14 presentation of Thornton Wilder’s Our Town at the Carrefour Theatre was a major first. The play itself has been produced countless times before, but this performance marks the first production by a major new Island theatre group: ACT (a community theatre).

ACT is essentially a community theatre group who hope to promote and produce theatre in Prince Edward Island through performances, mentoring and workshops.  Members range from amateur enthusiasts and drama students to seasoned professionals, and Our Town brought together many of them for the new company’s stage debut.

ACT Reading Club

Sometimes the best thing about community theatre
is reading about it! 

[/code][code] 
[/code][code] 

Members get together to ‘read’ a play or a ‘musical’. The purpose differs from member to member. Some use the opportunity to practice using their voice. Others use it to experience a show that is unlikely to play locally.

The Selection Committee attempts to provide members with a cross-section of familiar, unfamiliar and new works. Suggestions are welcome.

For information, please contact Reading Club Enquiry
