Kiss the Moon, Kiss the Sun
Kiss the Moon, Kiss the Sun

The Cove Journal
by JoDee Samuelson

It’s been raining all day and we’re tired of being indoors, so it’s a perfect evening to attend the Victoria Playhouse. Everyone has been saying good things about the play Kiss the Moon, Kiss the Sun. The synopsis on-line reads: “A pregnant young woman and a disabled man meet at a bus stop and begin a friendship that will change their lives forever.” Sounds a little heavy, bu

Patrick and Mark are Back At It

Interview by Ann Thurlow

For the second year Mark Haines and Patrick Ledwell will present The Island Summer Review at Harmony House in Hunter River. What’s new this year? Ann Thurlow finds out.

AT. What, to you, was the most surprising thing about last summer?

PL. The variety of people who came. Shaking hands at the door, we met people from 8 to 80 years old, from all around the world. Dion Phaneuf

by Jane Ledwell

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

by Jane Ledwell

As a human race, we dance. It’s an impulse—a basic, natural impulse to move,” says Peggy Reddin. It has been several years since the dance umbrella co-founder’s role at Confederation Centre of the Arts flowered into a role as Director of Arts Education, also working with Holland College-Confederation Centre partnership School for Performing Arts (SOPA).

Precious Hours

One Great Thing
Ann Thurlow

At most theatres, when it’s time for the show to start, the curtain rises. At Harmony House, the curtain goes down. That thin little wall of fabric that divides the lobby from the theatre, that separates the audience from dull care! Down it shimmies with a shiver. All that’s left in your whole world for those precious hours is your seat and the stage and someone who has com

The legacy of Erskine Smith

by Graham Lea

The show is over. Audience and actors have left. Costumes are hung and props reset. I turn out the backstage lights and pull tight the backstage door. The Playhouse is quiet. After a busy production week we have just finished the first few days of Having Hope at Home. Outside the heavy air is silent save someone sliding open a screen window and frogs chirping

Thanks

One Great Thing
by Ann Thurlow

You might want to remember Erskine Smith for his remarkable achievements at the Victoria Playhouse. Or maybe you’ll want to remember how he’d stop you on the street, click his heels together and tell you a funny, perfect little story. But, when he died, I was struck by how many people wanted to thank him for taking a risk on them, for giving them a chance. Judging by the

A Normal Life
Profile: Hank Stinson

by Jane Ledwell

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

Creating a new musical

by Sean McQuaid

Success has many fathers. For me, that old saying evokes Anne of Green Gables – the Musical where nearly the entire population of Avonlea takes credit for Anne’s accomplishments. The same adage applies less debatably to Anne’s long-gestating stage sister Evangeline, in which an interprovincial extended family of theatre professionals are helping give birth to one o
