Music and Hilarity

Carmody Comedy Follies

Review by Sarah Crane

Catherine McKinnnon and Don Harron host the Comedy Follies this summer at the Carmody Comedy Barn in Stanley Bridge at Catherine McKinnon's Spot O' Tea. The theme of the show is travel, and it fulfills this by taking the audience on a journey, leading them around the world and back through music hilarity.

And who could think of better traveling

You Take the High Road

Ceilidh on the Road

Review by Treva McNally

The Confederation Centre is definitely on the right track having shows in June and October. The night I went to Ceilidh on the Road, there was almost a full house and the members of the audience were nearly all tourists. The small Studio Theatre (formerly the Lecture Theatre) is well suited to this type of show although I wish the Confederation Centre

Thanks for the Memories

Don Messer's Fiddle

Review by Treva McNally

Summerside really knows how to throw a party, and the Jubilee Theatre is a beautiful place to do it. Where else for opening night would all the theatre patrons be treated to fresh crepes with strawberries and cream prepared in the lobby by chefs from Seasons in Thyme? It was a lovely idea.

The occasion was the world premiere of Don Messer's Violin,

Do I Know You?

Drill Queens

Review by Jonathan Stewart

The Drill Queens return for their fourth year of skit comedy at the Charlottetown Festival. Now numbering only two, the Queens present a whirlwind show of an hour and a half of new and classic sketches. Cynthia Dunsford and Laurie Murphy present a whole slew of characters that titillate and stimulate the audience. It is delightful to see the Charlottetown

A Heavenly Blend

Forever Plaid

Review by Jonathan Stewart

The Charlottetown Festival's production of Forever Plaid is everything a play can and should be. In a time when plays are getting more gimmicky, technical, and flashy to compete with Hollywood, Forever Plaid relies on talent and stage charisma to entertain. It's the story of Smudge (Christian Bellsmith), Sparky (Craig Evans), Frankie (Joe Levesque), and

Drive Dull Care

Hold the Haggis

Review by Ivy Wigmore

Summer doldrums got you down? Too hot? Too cold? Need a general tonic and pick-me-up? If you answered "yes" (or "no") to any of the above, head out to Orwell Corner Historic Village Monday night for a performance of "Hold the Haggis."

Hold the Haggis is one current incarnation of the estimable PEI performers Margie Carmichael, Steve Sharratt, Roy Johnstone and

Hood Ornaments

Review by Sean McQuaid

In 1999, the Homegrown Productions writer-producer team (Graham Putnam, Jason Rogerson and Josh Weale) debuted with Players. This summer, the HP trio return with a new comedy, Hood Ornaments; and like its 1999 ancestor, HO bears more than a slight resemblance to the films of Kevin Smith: lots of pop culture references, sexual content, and a primarily

Women's Ambitions

Little Women

Review by Jane Ledwell

Finding substantial dramatic roles for young women has been a perennial problem in non-musical theatre, but Linlea Theatre Company's new production of Little Women at the Arts Guild takes on the problem head-on. The play features five roles for young women in a script adapted from Louisa May Alcott's classic novel by Lindsay Kyte. Cast, crew, director, and
