The show, titled OF A CERTAIN AGE, will consist of three light hearted one-act plays be held at the Guild on November 13 / 14 (three performances).

All three scripts feature a role for a woman ‘of a certain age’. Two of the plays, “The Pretty Trap” and “Lord Byron’s Love Letter”, are written by Tennessee Williams. The third play, “The Prompter”, was written by David Moses for the well-loved local actress Mae Ames. A special feature of the production will be a vocalist / narrator who will set the stage for each play.
OF A CERTAIN AGE will coincide with an exhibition in the Gallery at the Guild of memorabilia - photos, props, costumes, posters, etc. from ACT’s 20 years of involvement with amateur theatre in the community.
The production OF A CERTAIN AGE will take place at the Guild in Charlottetown on November 13 (7:30pm) and November 14 (2:00pm and 7:30pm). Tickets are $20 and will be available at the door, cash only.

Case of the Disappearing Posters!
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
CHARLOTTETOWN—Posters for ACT‘s upcoming production of “Jesus Christ Superstar” have been miraculously, or perhaps not-so-miraculously, disappearing.
Rob Thomson of ACT reports, “Our posters are being taken down by someone. They’re quite attractive and could be a collector’s item. However, we hope there is nothing more sinister behind their disappearance.”
On the positive side, tickets are being sold faster than the posters are being taken. “With three weeks to go before Jesus Christ Superstar opens, ticket sales are out-of this-world!” noted Thomson.
“Superstar” is on stage at Confederation Centre November 4th, 5th and 6th. Tickets are available at the box office.
ACT is an amateur association promoting community theatre on Prince Edward Island, Canada. Jesus Christ Superstar is ACT’s 25th performance.

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.
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.
