Reading Club -  October 2nd

The October play-reading is “An Enexpected Guest” by Agatha Christie. It’s on Thursday evening, 2 October at 7:00 o’clock – in the Studio Theatre of the Confederation Centre. A special treat this time: Librarian and story teller Barb Kissick will give a brief talk about the author before the reading.

These play readings are fun, because there’s no preparation – we just go round the circle, taking turns at reading the assorted parts. And it’s a nice no-pressure social time. Cheap, too: free for ACT members; non-members chip in a $toonie to defray copying costs.

Cox and Box at Beaconsfield

Beaconsfield Fundraiser

“COX AND BOX” - a Boarding-House Musical

It’s the perfect scam. Landlady Bouncer is getting double rent for the same seedy room. Mr. Cox works by day, Mr. Box by night. Until today, they’ve never met. Nor do they know they are both engaged to the same woman—and both unwillingly.

Come into Beaconsfield’s boarding house as the Rataplan Players of Nova Scotia - Duncan Miller, Tony Marshall, and Jacqui Good, accompanied by Leon Cole on piano - sing and squabble through this delightful, 50-minute Victorian gem by Sir Arthur Sullivan (of Gilbert and Sullivan) and F.C. Burnand, future editor of Punch. The piece is a musical adaptation of a popular farce of the day, Box and Cox.

Have you ever heard a lullaby sung to a rasher of bacon? It’s here. And watch for the PEI celebrity mystery guest, who plays the non-love interest of Cox and Box.

For the second half you can join the audience chorus for selections from Gilbert and Sullivan’s “HMS PINAFORE”, led by Carl Mathis and accompanied by Leon Cole, who in another life was host of the well-loved CBC Radio program, RSVP. Solos are optional. Or you can just listen and cheer on the fun.

At the end of the evening, reward your vocal chords with fine Victorian refreshments from Lady Baker’s Tea Trolley.

The event is a fundraiser in aid of Beaconsfield’s Garden Project and takes place one night only, Friday, September 19 at 7:30pm in Beaconsfield’s Carriage House - corner of West and Kent Streets in Charlottetown. Seating is limited and reservations are recommended.

Tickets are $30 (with a tax receipt portion to be issued) and reservations can be made by calling Beaconsfield Historic House at 368-6603.
