Dancing Lessons plus Monday Night Concert Series
Victoria Playhouse has Mark St. Germaine’s quirky romantic comedy Dancing Lessons on stage Tuesday through Sunday until July 29.
Dancing Lessons stars Melissa Kramer alongside Jeff Schissler and tells the story of Ever, a professor of geophysics on the Autism spectrum, and his neighbour, injured Broadway dancer Senga Quinn. Ever first meets Senga when he turns up unannounced at her door urgently requesting a dancing lesson in order to be prepared for an event he must attend. Unbeknownst to Ever, Senga is dealing with her own crisis: the fact that her injury may spell the end of her career. As their relationship develops, both Ever and Senga are caught off-guard by the discoveries they make about each other and themselves.
The Playhouse Musical Mondays Concert Series opens July 2 with the PEI’s Gordie MacKeeman & His Rhythm Boys. Gordie and the Boys have been busy touring overseas, and this is one of only a handful of shows in the Maritimes this summer.
On July 9 are Canadian folk/roots icons Cindy Church & Susan Crowe. Individually, Church and Crowe are celebrated singer-songwriters with multiple awards and honours to their names; together their musical tastes and styles compliment and enhance one another, giving audiences an unforgettable experience.
On July 16, the Newfoundland quartet Rum Ragged takes the stage. Formed just three years ago, Rum Ragged play spirited instrumentals and traditional ballads.
Madison Violet will play on July 23. With roots in Cape Breton, Brenley MacEachern and Lisa MacIsaac met and formed Madison Violet in Toronto in 1999. Over the past two decades the pair have taken to genre-bending, moving effortlessly from folk to pop to electronic to Americana
