Calling for participants for the PEI Community Theatre Festival, March 2011

  This is just a little follow-up to our suggestion, back in September, that your theatre group might consider participating in the PEI Community Theatre Festival.
  The Festival takes place next March 25/26th.  That will be the 50th anniversary of UNESCO’s World Theatre Day—an appropriate occasion for local amateur groups, young and old, to get together to share plays and have some fun.  We’ll have an experienced adjudicator to give constructive feedback and present awards—last year it was Wade Lynch.  There’ll also be refreshments.
  Last year’s Festival at the Victoria Playhouse was a grand success, with three groups, more than 30 active participants, and an audience of 175.  We want to double that this year.
  What’s wanted is a short play or excerpt—anything up to 40 minutes.  It can be a piece of any kind: comedy, classic, avant garde, home-made, whatever.  This seems like a good chance to ‘warm up’ a play which is planned for later in the season, or to reprise an earlier production.
  There’s little or no cost for the theatre troupe.  We provide the venue and a technician to serve any sound-and-lighting requirements you might have.  You make your own arrangements about rights, costuming, set, props and transportation.
  There’s plenty of time—about three months—to get a play ready.  But we’re getting back in touch now because we need to know about tentative participants by December 15th, so that we can plan the number of performance evenings and the venues.  Then we’d need to have definite confirmation by January 15th.
  Would you please take a few moments now to write a note back or give us a call to ask any questions, and to tell us whether or not you’re making plans to join in the Festival.
  It’s going to be a lot of fun.  We sure hope you can take part.
The Festival organizing group:
  • Rob Reddin
  • Ruth Lacey
  • Rob Thomson 628-6778

Three Oaks Show

The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee at the Harbourfront - last week of May

Three Oaks Senior High School is proud to present this year’s musical, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee with performances by two separate casts May 27-29, 2010. The show’s Tony Award winning creative team has created the unlikeliest of hit musicals about the unlikeliest of heroes: a quirky, yet charming, cast of outsiders for whom a spelling bee is the one place where they can stand out and fit in at the same time. The characters involved come to learn that winning isn’t everything and that losing doesn’t necessarily make you a “loser”.  This hilarious tale spells nothing but fun for the audience- and maybe even a chance to “interact”! Join us for an evening at the Harbourfront Theatre May 27-29, 2010, curtain at 7:30 p.m., and enjoy the chance to just “bee” yourself. With two casts performing, the experience will never be the same way twice! Tickets are on sale through the box office beginning April 21 or on line: See you at “The Bee”!

Halifax Theatre Troupe Brings “A Taste Of Honey” to TheGuild

Friday, May 9 & Saturday, May 10 @ The Guild

“A Taste of Honey”


$18 general admission, $15 for students / seniors

You enjoyed the movie Juno? Come and see A Taste Of Honey! This award-winning witty play written by Shelagh Delaney is about a young teenage girl, Jo, pregnant in a single family home with a mother who is anything but ‘ideal’. The mother’s taste in men only compounds the situation. The show precludes the movie “Juno” by decades, but the scenario is similar.

Delaney produced this play at only 19 years of age; its film version went on to win accolades at Cannes and BAFTA.

The presentation by Broken Leg Act Theatre of Halifax has only 2 shows in Charlottetown! Staged in-the-round, this is true cockpit theatre. Come and cheer for the winning player!

For more details, call 620-3333.

Fools at the Jubilee

Theatre group launches inaugural season with Neil Simon comedy

The new Jubilee Players (formerly the Kensington Theatre Company) starts its inaugural season with a light-hearted production of Neil Simon?s 1981 comedy, Fools. The performance will take place on January 22, 28 & 29 at 8 pm at the Harbourfront Jubilee Theatre.

<a >cusco-lama.jpg</a>

The new Jubilee Players (formerly the Kensington Theatre Company) starts its inaugural season with a light-hearted production of Neil Simon?s 1981 comedy, Fools. The performance will take place on January 22, 28 & 29 at 8 pm at the Harbourfront Jubilee Theatre.

The play takes place in the cursed Ukrainian village of Kulyenchikov, where for two hundred years every villager has suffered the curse of absolute and unremitting stupidity. Not just mere stupidity, we?re talking DUM here. Snetsky (Sandra Sheridan), the town shepherdess not only can?t find two dozen sheep, she can?t even find her own first name.

Into this village of fools comes Leon Tolchinsky (Terry Foster), an idealistic young school teacher, who rushes in like a Peace Corp poster boy to save the village from the curse (or, as the villagers invariably call it ?the nurse, no the purse??). Leon is lured to the village by a totally misspelled advertisement placed by the town?s intellectual, Dr. Zubritsky (Thane Clarke) and his wife (Elaine Chessman), to educate the doctor?s daughter, Sophia (Angie Brighty) and rid the village of its curse. Leon, of course, falls madly in love with this damsel sporting the IQ of a cabbage.

With one day, ?25 hours? according to the villianous Duke Yousekevitch (Vernon Campbell) to accomplish this or fall victim to the curse himself, Leon struggles to raise Sophia from a young woman who has mastered the art of sitting, to a Grade 1 mathematics wiz. With veteran performers Grace Jenkins, Roy Young, Albert Gaudet and Don Purich as the village idiots, this production is sure to delight.

This is vintage Simon schtick. One liners and gags, spoken and visual, fly with the frequency of bullets from a Gatling Gun. A sort of Borscht Belt-Brigadoon, this hilarious, laugh-until-your-stomach-aches-comedy is perfect family entertainment. Created by the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of hits such as The Odd Couple, Brighton Beach Memoirs and Lost in Yonkers. WCBS-TV says, Fools has been described as the brightest, funniest, wittiest, warmest and happiest show on Broadway.

Tickets available by calling the Harbourfront Jubilee Theatre box office at 902-888-2787 or 1-800-708-6505.

A great performance of a great musical


I recently returned from a night in Charlottetown at the theatre. I was amazed and happy to see almost a full house (on a Thursday night) at the Confederation Centre to see a marvelous and very well-done performance of Jesus Christ Superstar.
