New musical comedy workshop open to the public

Catherine O’BrienAt 2 pm on October 7, the team behind a new Canadian musical, Floor 27, will do their first public reading at The Guild and they want public feedback. Partnered with The Guild and Young at Heart Theatre, Catherine O’Brien has brought together a group of performers to bring Floor 27 to life.

When Catherine O’Brien, director, came across the script written by John Arnold (PEI) and Mike Paterson (NS) she knew it was a piece of work needing to be seen by a wider audience. Floor 27 is a timely, musical celebration of humanity’s enduring inability to stick to the plan, and the folly of expecting that we will.

O’Brien began sharing the whacky yet relatable story of Lithcoe Balcombe and his struggles through the daily life of the rat race. “Once I shared the synopsis, it was easy to get folks to take part.” said O’Brien. Since getting the cast and crew, O’Brien says that she is committed to paying a fair wage to each person on the team, which is why she has launched a crowd funding campaign to help cover costs.

The cast includes members of the Charlottetown production, Anne & Gilbert, many of whom are alumni of the Sheridan College Theatre program. Sheridan College has expressed some interest in hearing how the workshop goes. 

“It’s not very often that a team is able to bring the audience along on the journey of workshopping a new piece like this,” said O’Brien. She says that she hopes that members of PEI’s acting and theatre production community, as well as theatre lovers in general, will attend and help shape Floor 27 into the next great Canadian musical. 

Doors open at 1:30 pm and admission is by donation.
