The show
The show begins with the final song from Stompin’ Tom at a Prince Edward Island concert. We move to a house party in Skinner’s Pond that was supposed to be a secret. But in fact, everyone turns up to talk to Tom and hear him play a few tunes. Ms Dunn Keefe has written a hilarious script. Chad Matthews excels at portraying Stompin’ Tom. Chad obviously studied Tom Connors’ mannerisms, personality and musical style. Different conversations from an excellent supporting cast evoke in Tom a memory, a story and ultimately a song. Stompin’ Tom’s life story is expertly woven through those stories and especially the songs. Special mention goes to cast member Paul Shea as Bernadine Doyle. Bernadine’s antics will keep you rolling in the aisles! The cast also serve the meal, and they are excellent at it.  The dinner, catered by Sonrise Catering, was lovely—fresh and hot. Our thanks to Chef Carol Chaisson and her business partner Darlene Getson.

Best thing
Chad Matthews as the man himself, Stompin' Tom Connors.

Final thoughts
This play is a fitting tribute to Canadian legend, Tom Connors. The actors are local folks and should be applauded for their wonderful ability to entertain and make their guests (audience) feel so genuinely welcome. There are two different plays, My Island Home and the one we attended, playing throughout the summer. Visit www.stompintomcentre.com for details.
