Always in Tune


Always in Tune

Profile: Kendra MacGillivray

by Ann Thurlow

The first time Kendra MacGillivray picked up a fiddle, she was just a little girl. Her mother was taking fiddle lessons. And thanks to her grandfather, celebrated Cape Breton fiddler Hugh A. MacDonald, the fiddle was an important part of family life.

So young Kendra picked up the instrument and picked out a tune. I express amazement but she shrugs. It’s

King of Quirk

Lorne Elliott

Review by Fraser McCallum

The king of quirk is back. Lorne Elliott recently rocked The Guild with the first of three completely different stage shows this season. Hitting the road soon for a cross-Canada comedy coup, Elliott chose his frequent summer home to debut a treasure trove of standup comedy gems. Back for the first time since a startling heart attack last year, Elliott

Labour of Love


That Dance Show

Review by Ann Thurlow

The mood at That Dance Show is set before the dancing even starts. The show’s producers have made a virtue of the lack of backstage space in the Delta ballroom. In the hall, a dancer is getting her hair done. Other dancers warm up on the stage; a man dressed like Charlie Chaplin cartwheels and cavorts for the crowd. There is cheesy French accordion music and

The Play’s the Thing


The Play’s the Thing

Profile: Lisa Carmody

by Jane Ledwell

Lisa Carmody says that as a kid, when she planned out plays with her friends, “I would get so excited that I would have an asthma attack and end up in hospital. Really! I would have to call them up and say, “[Wheeze] Uh, guys, sorry—I don’t think [wheeze] I can make it.”

“I still get that excited,” she giggles, “but I take my inhaler.”

In her second summer

Dazzling Portrayal

…and stockings for the ladies

Review by Katie Rankin

Usually when I hear the theatre term “one man play” I cringe and imagine a mustached-man sitting on a stool on a blackened stage with a single spotlight on his glistening, bald head as he laments about his life. Fortunately for me, in Attila Clemann’s play ...and stockings for the ladies this notion of one actor on stage is transformed into

Entertaining Insights


The Nine Lives of L. M. Montgomery

Review by Nina Linton

The Nine Lives of L. M. Montgomery is a theatrical interpretation of the writer’s life, a life that was constantly punctuated by tragedy, unlike the novels she created which had, for the most part, happy endings.

The production follows Maud through out life in three versions of herself—Young Maud, Ingénue Maude and Adult Maude. The

Funny Ways to Be

Island Standup Showcase

Review by Sebastian Baglole

Why be an upright and upstanding citizen if you can avoid it? Every second we wait, another chance for a killing joke may slip by. That’s the stance of the amateur but not amateurish gang of comedians performing their humorous bi-weekly interactions at The Guild in Charlottetown through July and August.

Already familiar with the stage, For Skit’s

Gasping for Air


Sketch-22

Review by Linda Wigmore

Rob MacDonald’s in it. That should be enough of a review to get people out to The Guild to see Sketch 22 this summer. Yes, MacDonald is that funny. But there are other reasons that make season five the one to see. This is my favourite show yet, I’ve seen it twice and I’m going for a third time.

Sketch 22 is a mix of live comedy sketches and previously filmed
