2019 Community Theatre Festival - Schedule

March 30th - the Line-up

Here’s the line-up for Saturday afternoon, March 30th, at The Carrefour.
  There is a 15-minute break between plays, for adjudication, changing the stage, and refreshments.  The times cannot be exact — there’s bound to be some variation, but we’ll try to keep on track.

1:00 - The Shamrock Players - Babel Rap
Comedy: two workers are high up on the biblical Tower of Babel — contemplating life, work and the hereafter.

1:40 - Side Hustle - Improv
Creative spontaneity: in short- and long-form games, the seven performers create on-the-spot entertainment, prompted by suggestions from the audience.

2:15 - 9-F Theatre Troupe (Birchwood Intermediate) - The Tipping Point
Drama: a teenager is hounded by her anxiety, following her every step through her day … rising to a crisis.

2:45 - Charlottetown ALL Comedy Open Mic
Stand-up comedy: three performers take turns at the microphone with their just-for-laughs patter.

3:20 - The Tracadie Players - Rrrrrrrrrrroll up the Rim to Win
Comedy skit: ’tis the season at Tim’s, prompting the age-old question … ‘What would you do if you actually won?’

4:00 - Malcolm Murray Group - Chop Wood, Carry Water
Absurdist comedy: a man is moving a pile of wood … along comes the woodlot-owner’s daughter.  Zen saying: “Before enlightenment, chop wood, carry water … After enlightenment, chop wood, carry water.”

4:35 - Mi’kmaq Heritage Actors - Legends from the Past
Dramatic story-telling with drum and dance: stepping back in time to experience the rich cultural traditions of the Island’s First-Nations people.

5:10 - ‘Nobody’ - Homeward
Dramatic reading: an excerpt from a play based on imagined episodes from the Homeric epic Odyssey — the interaction between the nymph Calypso and her captive lover, the wily adventurer Odysseus … with his patron goddess Athena looking on.

Doors open at 12:30.  Drop in for a play or two, or the whole afternoon.
Admission: what-you-will donation (think $5 or $10 or so)
