Can ACT come out to play?

Hello Gerry -

It was wonderful to see you kilted and graceful at the Private Lives Ball.  Have you checked out what Laurella Parsnips had to say about you on our blog? ( )  Some nice pics of you and Brenda there as well…

I am hoping that perhaps you will share this attachment with the members of ACT.  It is a great deal for groups of 10 or more who book and pay for theatre tickets before March 1st, when Montgomery Theatre starts selling its tickets through Bookings Online PEI. 

I am looking forward to seeing Evita next month.

Cheers, Gerry!

Classic ‘Theatre of the Absurd’ Drama

Coming this April is Sheep-for-Wheat’s staging of the Eugene Ionesco classic, The Lesson.  Starring accomplished local talents Chris Doiron, Meaghan Blanchard and Kelsey Moore, The Lesson is an absurdist one-act written in 1951.

The critically acclaimed play was one of the French playwright’s (Ionesco) most distinguished works as well as one of the most notable in the history of the ‘Theatre of the Absurd’ genre.  It revolves around a strange study session between a naive young student (Blanchard) and a delirious, yet powerful professor (Doiron).

The Lesson will be staged at the Guild April 2, 3 & 4 at 8pm.  Direction is by Rob Reddin, stage management by Ashley Clark and music by Keith Baglole.  Co-producers Fraser McCallum and Chera-Lee Hickox round out the company.

Sheep-for-Wheat Productions is an independent theatre company out of Charlottetown.  Small but mighty, this is their second production after great success with a Guild staging of the Harold Pinter drama, The Dumb Waiter.

Tickets are $12 and can be purchased in advance at the box office or at showtime. Come one, come all!
