What the Fred?


ACRONYM

Review by Sean McQuaid

Are you tired of life making sense? Were you one of those kids who loved to torture insects or small animals? Do you like your theatre weird, spooky and nigh-unto-incomprehensible? If you answered "yes" to one or more of these questions, ACRONYM might well be your hallucinogenic cup of tea.

Written and directed by Mickey Acorn with technical direction and stage

The Conjuror's Suite

Review by Sean McQuaid

Theatre is alive. While seldom as visually spectacular as its cousins film and television, live theatre offers an unmatched immediacy and, at its best, a sense of wonder. Nothing taps that sense of wonder more effectively than a magician; an artist who not only performs before in the presence of an audience, but whose performance consists of amazing and

Dracula The Undead

Review 
by Sean McQuaid

Since its genesis as Bram Stoker's 1897 novel, Dracula has been endlessly resurrected through a host of imitations and adaptations in various media, firmly establishing Count Dracula as the definitive vampire character . In fact, the story has been revived and revamped (sorry) so many times over the decades that any new version faces some scary

Put on the Spot

4Play

Review by Kelly McLean

Have you ever been thrown into the spotlight with all eyes on you, waiting for you to perform? That must be how Rob McLean, Matt Rainnie, Rob MacDonald and Ed Rashed feel every Monday night this summer when they perform 4Play Live Without a Net at the Charlottetown Arts Guild. It's two hours of unrehearsed, hilarious comedy.

These actors have no lines to rehearse or

Sink or Swim

Adrift

Review by Sean McQuaid

Lars Davidson is best known to Islanders as a local writer who has scripted and sold Hollywood screenplays (beginning with 1995's A Deeper Danger); this summer, however, he tests the waters of a different medium by writing, directing and starring in Adrift, a new play running at the Carmody Comedy Barn in scenic Stanley Bridge. 

Billed as a romantic comedy and

Music and Hilarity

Carmody Comedy Follies

Review by Sarah Crane

Catherine McKinnnon and Don Harron host the Comedy Follies this summer at the Carmody Comedy Barn in Stanley Bridge at Catherine McKinnon's Spot O' Tea. The theme of the show is travel, and it fulfills this by taking the audience on a journey, leading them around the world and back through music hilarity.

And who could think of better traveling

You Take the High Road

Ceilidh on the Road

Review by Treva McNally

The Confederation Centre is definitely on the right track having shows in June and October. The night I went to Ceilidh on the Road, there was almost a full house and the members of the audience were nearly all tourists. The small Studio Theatre (formerly the Lecture Theatre) is well suited to this type of show although I wish the Confederation Centre

Thanks for the Memories

Don Messer's Fiddle

Review by Treva McNally

Summerside really knows how to throw a party, and the Jubilee Theatre is a beautiful place to do it. Where else for opening night would all the theatre patrons be treated to fresh crepes with strawberries and cream prepared in the lobby by chefs from Seasons in Thyme? It was a lovely idea.

The occasion was the world premiere of Don Messer's Violin,
