Matinee Performance


I’m Dining Out Here

by Andrew Sprague

I don’t find myself indoors very often on Sunday afternoons. Especially beautiful, sunny, summer, Sunday afternoons. Golf, frisbee, beaches and just relaxing in the sun are far too attractive for me to turn down most of the time. But every once in a while there’s a really good reason to go inside, even on a sunny, summer, Sunday. On this occasion it was a

Close for Comfort

A Closer Walk With Patsy Cline

Review by Carol Little

Set in 1963 as a WINC radio retrospect of ‘current’ recording artist Patsy Cline’s rise to success in the music business, documenting her modest beginnings as an outgoing, enthusiastic young singer to her tragic, unexpected death, Dean Regan’s A Closer Walk With Patsy Cline is a nostalgic review of the singer’s hit songs.

Controlled Craziness


Riot Act

Review by Patrick Ledwell

Like the word couplings “resident alien” and “family vacation,” the phrase “riot act” is an oxymoron. Even so, “Riot Act” is a fitting name for an ensemble performing as part of the Stanley Bridge Festival, running throughout the summer in the newly-rechristened Barn Theatre. Their music, with its roots firmly planted in traditional soil, strikes the peculiar

Drifting Tradition


Hedgerow

Review by Jane Ledwell

As family farms have given way to factory farming, hedgerows on the Island have become more scarce. Not only has this taken away from the Island’s beauty, but loss of hedgerows has also led to loss of topsoil. In an evening of gentle songs and stories, the members of the performing group “Hedgerow” do their bit to prevent the drift and erosion of Island traditional

Gracie Amazes


Amazing Gracie

Review by Kumari Campbell

Homefree Productions’ 2004 summer season opened July 10 to an almost full house and the Island’s trademark standing ovation. On the boards was Amazing Gracie, their musical revue about 20th century British singer and comedienne Gracie Fields.

Island audiences accustomed to the zany antics of Nancy Beck and Pamela Campbell were not disappointed by the

Mature Content

Sketch-22

Review by Jane Ledwell

A sign at the ticket desk for “Sketch-22” warns of “mature content.” The sign refers to the show’s racy elements—comedy that relies on swearing, violence, sex, or drugs. But “mature” can be understood more than one way…

If you are not easily offended, “Sketch-22” is hilarious. I wore myself out laughing. I was just disappointed that “Sketch-22” alienated part of

The Rocking Judge

Off Her Rocker

Review by Kumari Campbell

A new comedy by Nancy Beck premiered at the Georgetown Theatre. Off Her Rocker is about Prince Edward Island Supreme Court judge, Roberta Elvira Boyle (Bertie for short), who spends her spare time writing jingles. Beck plays the role of the eccentric judge.

By writing her jingles for local businesses, Bertie immediately scores points (and howls of laughter)
