Jam Sandwich

Jam Sandwich
Million Dollar Quartet

Review by Sean McQuaid 

Her musical's lyrics urge Anne of Green Gables to "never change," and the show's Charlottetown Festival home often seems somewhat simpatico with that advice. Anne's antics return every year, and most Festival seasons also feature at least one jukebox musical. That includes this year's main stage companion to Anne, Million Dollar Quartet

Best medicine
Profile: Raymond Arsenault

by Jane Ledwell

"I really believe that saying, ‘Laughter is the best medicine,’” says Raymond Arsenault earnestly, writer and director of plays and dinner theatre productions in the Island’s francophone Evangeline region.

A gift of Island poetry: Yvette Doucette

Curated by Deirdre Kessler

Tulips (a week after)

She had put tulips on the table
serrated edges, lacy cups
a shade of red toward vermillion.

I step closer, peek into the silky petals,
the stamens inky powder smudged
mascara-after-tears into each centre.

as though I might suddenly see her standing near.
How curious not one bright petal has fallen.

To the market
Bloomfield Farmer’s Market to open in July

Way Up West
by Jan Cox

The Farmer’s Market in Bloomfield has borrowed a tune from a well known television show theme, “…where everybody knows your name.”

There was not an existing Farmer’s Market in West Prince. A group of interested and dedicated local business owners met in 2008 and from that meeting grew the Bloomfield Farmer’s Market. Rohan Dean,

#TryThisAndrew
by Andrew Sprague

Some folks like to say that one of the most appealing aspects of living in a northern climate is the change in seasons. I’ve probably said it myself, maybe as recently as yesterday. And when people say it, most imagine the majesty of the fall, the beautiful change in colours, the relief from the summer’s heat, and sweaters. Some
