Spirited performances promised this summer

Treble With Girls and friends in For the Love of the IslandThe Kings Playhouse has been on the same grounds for more than 130 years and over that time it has become enriched in the local history. With that history comes rumours of ghostly appearances and tales of patrons who never leave.

This past month the Kings Playhouse hosted two different ghost hunting film crews who spent a number of nights trying to capture activity from the haunting residents. Each of the productions this year has a hint of these spirits.

The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged/Revised) is a three-person madcap comedy that combines all 37 of the Bard’s plays in just 97 minutes. You’ll definitely get your fix of ghostly apparitions, with Hamlet’s father and Lady MacBeth’s stained hands. Directed by Laura K Bird, this wacky play stars Kassinda Bulger, Ben Hartley and Jay Nicholson. The show runs most Sundays at 7:30 pm.

On stage again is Treble with Girls with For the Love of the Island: Chapter 2. This commissioned work tells the story behind traditional and original songs. Treble with Girls includes performers Jolee Patkai, Maxine MacLennan, Sheila MacKenzie and Norman Stewart. While there are no (planned) ghostly appearances in this play, you will learn the history of our Island and more about our ancestors. It takes place on Wednesdays at 7:30 pm through the summer.

This year the Playhouse is waving goodbye to some spirited performers that have been haunting the theatre for the past few years. This is the last year for the Four Tellers with their aptly named show The Last Laugh. Island storytellers David Weale, Alan Buchanan, Gary Evans and Dennis King bring their acclaimed show to the theatre, where they’ll be telling stories around a kitchen table. They are on stage Mondays at 7:30 pm.

To round out the season in a truly ghostly fashion, take a Haunted Georgetown walk on Thursdays at 9:15 pm. People are taken on a tour of the Playhouse where your guide will recount stories of hauntings past. After that, you’ll be taken through Georgetown to learn more about the local history and other tales.

You don’t need to tap into any supernatural powers to learn more about the season or buy tickets. Stop by the Playhouse or visit to make sure you don’t miss out on what the summer program has to offer.
