Addicted
Tape


Review by Norah Pendergast

Youthful desire for originality is something that Club Red Productions brings to the Charlottetown theatre scene. Co-founders Jenna MacMillan and Willie Beck seek scripts with intense subject matter, and “existential stuff” that has not yet been presented on an Island stage. Joe Apart, their second production, by local playwright Michael Walker, dealt with the iss

Anne Grows Up
Anne & Gilbert

Review by Norah Pendergast

Anticipation builds as the audience of Anne & Gilbert fills the Victoria Playhouse. With the hour drawing near cellist, Julia McLean and violinist, Mark Haines tune together. One can hear the chorus warming up through the walls of the restored, historic theatre. What excitement will Anne, Gilbert, and all the familiar characters find for themselves?

Home for the Holidays
4 of a Kind

Review by Norah Pendergast

The play, 4 of a Kind, has a great premise which many people can relate to: strangers who car-pool home from university for the holidays. Sounds innocent enough. Throw in some crazy personalities, and the little VW beetle takes a detour towards insanity. Written by nineteen-year-old St. Peters native, Jonah Anderson, 4 of a Kind was brought to life by five youthful

Honest Love
Lights

Review by Norah Pendergast

A new play, Lights, written and directed by Alix MacLean, tells the story of a Charlottetown girl who re-learns the facts of life when she moves to a metropolis for university. Toronto offers diverse developmental influences to Mickey, the impressionable young heroine.

“Micheala” (Mickey) and “Ben” are long time best friends who make the milestone move together. The play de

Courthouse Jesters
The Ticket

Review by Norah Pendergast

Over the years since its construction in the summer of 1872, the St. Peter’s Courthouse Theatre has been the seat of such community institutions as law and education. In modern times it serves the purpose of a cultural center. The building has been beautifully restored and functions as a museum during the day, and on hot summer nights you can watch the sun go d

Leading Lights
Meet the stars of Anne and Gilbert

by Norah Pendergast

Just before starting a day of rehearsal in Victoria by the Sea with the cast of Anne and Gilbert, Marla McLean reflected on her motivation. “I know that acting is my calling because I can’t imagine doing anything else. If you are in theatre and can imagine doing anything else, then, when things get tough, you will.” Marla, who will play “Anne,” was i

Making it Up
4 Skit’s Sake

Review by Norah Pendergast

Improvise, from the latin improvisus, which means literally, unforseen. To compose, recite, play or sing extemporaneously, to make, invent, or arrange offhand, or to fabricate out of what is conveniently on hand. The cast of 4 Skit’s Sake is doing it all this summer at the Art’s Guild.

Improv-comedy is a do or die theatrical medium which tests an actor’s nerves a

A !@#$% Riot!
Sketch-22

Review by Norah Pendergast

Outrageously satirical and energetically thrilling, from commencement to completion the cast of Sketch 22 forcefully throws humorous and shocking antics at its audience. With season two of Sketch 22 well under way, the comedians can rest assured that expectations based on last year’s success are not disappointed. The show is as memorable and hilarious as any show, a

An Immortal
A Closer Walk With Patsy Cline

Review by Norah Pendergast

The musical tribute, A Closer Walk With Patsy Cline, has been produced over one hundred times for appreciative audiences throughout North America. Here in Charlottetown, it has been the MacKenzie Theatre’s most successful production ever. The show ran this spring from May 26th until June 18th.

A Closer Walk With Patsy Cline, written by Canadian

Fiddlin' in the Family
Keelin Wedge continues the tradition of Island music

by Norah Pendergast

To watch sixteen-year-old fiddle player, Keelin Wedge preform is to witness a true expression of Acadian culture.

“When I was six I asked Santa to bring me a fiddle, and that’s how it started.” Perhaps Keelin was predisposed to music. Her mother has descended from an especially musical, Francophone family, “they’re all fiddlers and dance
