Congratulations

It is after midnight, and I have just returned from Indian River, and I want to congratulate ACT on a tremendously successful presentation of this wonderful play. I was gripped from start to finish. Everything was wonderful. Carl, the music was beautiful.

I believe that one of my favourite parts was the Knights little card party. Well done!

Thank-you all for an outstanding theatre experience.

Murder on Location

From Thursday, August 26 through Saturday, August 28, St. Mary�s Church will become the stage for Murder in the Cathedral, the gripping verse drama by T.S. Eliot reenacting the death of Archbishop Thomas Becket in Canterbury Cathedral on December 29, 1170.
Murder in the Cathedral graphic
Written for the Canterbury Festival in 1935, Eliot�s play � arguably the most substantial religious drama of the past century � was soon recognized as a classic and moved into commercial theatres; later it even became a film. But it is still best experienced in a church; in this setting it has been performed all over the world, including at St. Peter’s Cathedral in Charlottetown in 1983.

Hangin’ with the Dead

Sean McQuaid’s review of 1837: The Farmers’ Revolt found in the Buzz

May 1999—Pity the poor theatre reviewer. In an outing all too typical of my sumnambulistic social life, I spent an entire Friday evening hanging out with dead folks. Actually, they did the hanging, gallows style. And the shooting, and the drinking, and the laughing, and the brandishing of pitchforks. I just sat there and watched ‘em, suitably impressed by the liveliest bunch of dead people I’d seen in ages. Such was the stuff of ACT’s latest theatrical production, Rick Salutin’s 1837: The Farmer’s Revolt.

Back to Where You Belong

Review from the Buzz

Although I wish theatre companies would leave the stuck-in-80’s works of Larry Shue alone, ACT presented a lively staging of Shue’s The Nerd.

Ben Kinder, the straight man, Sara Fraser, the girlfriend, and Dave Sherren, the best friend (and in this case, also the director) are joined on stage by John Conway, Nancy McLure, and Tyler Gallant-Hatcher who’ve been invited to celebrate Kinder’s birthday and await the arrival of the nerd.

It’s Miller Time

Sean McQuaid’s review of The Crucible from the Buzz

April 1996— To quote Papa Smurf: “Amazing. Simply Amazing!” Darned if I can remember the last time a community theatrical production inspired such interest hereabouts. People were lined up to see Arthur Miller’s The Crucible long before the doors opened at the MacKenzie Theatre, by which time advance sales had already guaranteed a run of packed houses - even encore performances, which sold out as well! ACT (a community theatre) deserves a round of applause for what may be their most successful production yet.

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.
