If You're Stronghearted & Zoe Vs. The Devil

Review by Michael Oliver

In January, two one-act plays written and directed by Charlottetown Rural High School student Alix MacLean delighted audiences at Beaconsfield Carriage House.

If You're Stronghearted and Zoe Vs. The Devil both depict the world of adolescence with a sympathetic vision of its problems and a vivid understanding of its

Students Present Plays

Review by Erin Fagan

On November 14 through 16, UPEI's Duffy Amphitheatre was transformed from a standard lecture hall into a stage for experimental student drama. The annual UPEI Theatre Society Evening of One-Acts has traditionally been an excellent opportunity for students to produce, direct, and perform their own short pieces on a public stage. This year, three eclectic comedies were produced

The Happy Gang

The Happy Prince

Review by Erin Fagan

The seven members of the 2002 Charlottetown Festival Young Company (Craig Fair, Sean Hauk, Leah Johnston, Lisa Lennox, Cliff Sardinha, Shawna Van Omme, and Dina Young), have acquired a devoted following this past summer. Case in point: just before my interview, a small legion of giggling kids tracked down their idols into the green room of the Confederation

Dirty Rats

The Rat Pack Crooners

Review by Gena Fisher

Straight from the bar upstairs, ladies and gentleman, may I introduce the Rat Pack: Fred Santora, Dan Larkin and Sunny Mavis are the cool trio of crooners performing live at Vegas by night, and filming their movie Atlantic 11 by day, if they show up.

This summer Eddie May Murder Mystery Dinner Theatre presents, The Rat Pack Crooners at Piazza Joe's in

A Little Maud Music


Songs of the Island

Review by Erin Fagan

In the thick of another PEI summer season, it is deeply refreshing to get a little more acquainted with the woman behind the celebrity of Anne of Green Gables. New insight into the singular imagination of L.M. Montgomery can be found on a summer Sunday evening at the Confederation Centre's Studio Theatre, enabled by the talents of Marlane O'Brien, Hank

Ahoy, Mate!

Adrift

Review by Aldera Chisholm

You have to love any play that involves audience participation. Even more so when that participation comes in the form of dumping water over the actors' heads. For each performance of Adrift, the playwright has requested the role of the "Rainmaker" to be played by an audience member.

Set in the beautiful Victoria Playhouse, Adrift is not your usual romantic comedy.

Late Laughs


Late Night at the Mack

Reveiw by Sarah Crane

Wednesday nights at the MacKenzie Theatre are comedy nights and the slogan for the Late Night at the Mack series tells me "You never know who you might see." One mainstay is host and well-known Island comic Laurie Murphy. The slogan holds true enough for the rest of the show. Murphy leads the audience through an evening of traditional stand-up comedy,
