Rebecca Parent smooths her dress before sitting, a ritual she’s getting accustomed to. She is 15 days into “150 Days of Dresses,” which Rebecca and her creative co-conspirator Laurie Campbell have undertaken to promote What to Wear to the Birth of a Nation. They are co-creating, co-writing, co-producing, co-directing, and co-starring in this sesquicentennial two-w

As a human race, we dance. It’s an impulse—a basic, natural impulse to move,” says Peggy Reddin.

Pick a month and play a game: How many listings in The Buzz include drummer Alan Dowling? “In the course of a year, I play with at least a dozen totally different groups,” he says. It’s a steady, hectic rhythm: “In a one-month period, I might do country, rock, jazz, blues, and drumline (marching drums). That might be a typical month.”

Alan loves variety. “I love t

In Ontario, what was one in a million here is one of a kind,” says Laura Cole of her chosen Island home, where she settled almost ten years ago first in Pinette and then in Charlottetown to pursue her passion for craft and creation.

I’ve worked in a supermarket, so I know all the pop bottle labels should be facing out, and to check the best-before dates,” he says w

Visiting from Toronto, writer and singer-songwriter Nancy White calls herself a “lapsed Maritimer.” Nationally-known for wry wit in songs and musical political commentary, she adds self-deprecatingly, “You have to invent some phrases for yourself or else people will do it to you.”

The Island-born artist is on a fly-in trip to PEI to beach, visit friends, and see

A Sense of Wonder
Alice in Wonderland

Review by Jane Ledwell

Beach-goers who want an evening to relax at the theatre have tremendous options this summer, and several of the options are even close by the ocean. The Montgomery Theatre in North Rustico, newly renamed the Watermark, continues to set high-tide marks on Prince Edward Island’s theatrical sand. Their production of Alice in Wonderland is another example of t

There’s a real strength in line you don’t get with a lot of other arts,” says master woodworker Diane Gaudreau of her craft. Her strong and graceful design has led to pieces selected for the Cheoungju International Biennale in South Korea and the 2010 Cultural Olympiad—and for commissions such as the Northern Lights Award.

A small-town boy from a British Columbia pulp-and-paper town, Hank Stinson has been active as an actor and in the theatre since 1969. And yet, in an introspective conversation, he insists he has had “two careers.”

“From the time I graduated in 1969, to the late 1970s, I was pursuing a theatrical ‘career,’” Hank recalls. “I worked most theatres across the country, and I rea

If your eye is drawn to the artist profile in The Buzz in any month, it is probably drawn by a photo of the person being featured. I love these photos. Usually purpose-posed for The Buzz article, they give me a glimpse of a person I’ve met from a new angle, in a new light.
