The Dating Scheme

Review by Chris McGarry

The night I attended the St. Peter’s Courthouse Theatre a large audience had gathered to watch the hilarious, well-acted production The Dating Scheme. The Dating Scheme, directed by Jonah Anderson, is the story of sisters Peggy (Tanya MacCallum) and Sally (Veronica Powell) who learn that their best friend Sarah (Jeana MacIsaac) has just broken up from a committed r

Searching for Abegweit

Review by Chris McGarry

On a Monday evening in July, a capacity crowd gathered at the MacKenzie Theatre to watch Searching for Abegweit: The Island Songs and Stories of Lennie Gallant. In Searching for Abegweit, Juno-nominee Gallant, one of PEI’s favorite sons, weaves a superb, heartfelt narrative of the historical tales of our fair isle through story and song. Against a haunting b

A Genuine Treat
The Drowsy Chaperone

Review by Chris McGarry

On a Sunday in June, a capacity crowd gathered inside of the King’s Playhouse in Georgetown to watch Bob Martin and Don McKellar’s hilarious musical comedy The Drowsy Chaperone. The play is a show within a show; it begins with the Man in the Chair (Nicholas Whelan) telling the audience about his favorite 1920s musical, The Drowsy Chaperone. He’s a bit of a sna

Young Love
Boy Meets Girl

Review by Chris McGarry

On July 25, a decent-sized group of theatregoers congregated at St. Peter’s Courthouse Theatre to watch the touching, innocent love story Boy Meets Girl. In this tale, written by Sam Wolfson and directed by Alicia Atlass, we’re introduced to Sam (Adam MacGregor) and Katie (Sherri-Lee Darrach), two preschoolers who meet one day on the playground and quickly become fas

The Perfect Blend
From Debt to Death

Review by Chris McGarry

On a sultry July 7 evening, theatregoers packed into the King’s Playhouse in Georgetown to laugh their way through the outrageously facetious, slightly dark comedy production From Debt to Death.

In From Debt to Death, which could be described as an insightful though slightly exaggerated commentary on the financial strains suffered by numerous families in

Small Town Secrets
You Can’t Get There From Here

Review by Chris McGarry

On July 3 a small though energetic crowd laughed their way through Pat Cook’s You Can’t Get There From Here, which debuted on the stage of the King’s Playhouse in Georgetown.

In this delightfully comedic romp, the audience finds themselves in the dull, backwards town of Shadow Falls. Arthur (Tristan Lewis), a big-city news reporter with a big-city

Good Golly Miss Molly

Review by Chris McGarry

On July 13 the Rodd Charlottetown was alive with the sounds of classic rock n roll tunes and uproarious laughs as a large enthusiastic audience gathered to watch the lively dinner theatre production Good Golly Miss Molly.

The spirited, thoroughly engrossing, well-acted story begins in modern-day Charlottetown where family and friends have gathered at the

The near-capacity crowd who flocked to the Harbourfront Theatre in Summerside on August 14 were treated to an evening of spectacular performances and hilarious fun as they watched legendary American writer/composer Dan Goggin’s megahit off-Broadway musical comedy Nunsense.

The production, directed by Catherine O’Brien, centers around five nuns who spend their days a

The lighthearted, comedic-drama P.E.I. Love Story made its debut in front of a large audience at the St. Peters Courthouse Theatre on July 6. P.E.I. Love Story, the premiere play by the Charlottetown-based theatre company Manne Productions, follows a couple of days in the lives of four lifelong friends—Andrew (Adam MacGregor), Karen (Alicia Altass), Mark (Shawn A

The Great Ice Cream Scheme

Review by Chris McGarry

On a particularly hot evening in early July, a large crowd of all ages gathered at the King’s Playhouse in Georgetown to watch the hilariously, sweet, comedic melodrama The Great Ice Cream Scheme.

The setting for the play is somewhere in small-town Canada in the late 1950s. It’s no secret that Pop Sicle’s Ice Cream Parlor serves the best ice cream in

It’s a Mystery
Hickory Dickory Dead

Review by Chris McGarry

Chris Sodaro’s darkly comedic, intriguing murder mystery Hickory Dickory Dead premiered at the King’s Playhouse in Georgetown on July 8. This most enthralling, slightly sinister whodunit begins on a stormy night when estranged sisters Connie Girard (Ceri Davis Fletcher) and Regan Tasker (Quinby Barrows) meet at the Victorianish Hickory Dickory Inn for a wee
