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,

Do I Know You?

Drill Queens

Review by Jonathan Stewart

The Drill Queens return for their fourth year of skit comedy at the Charlottetown Festival. Now numbering only two, the Queens present a whirlwind show of an hour and a half of new and classic sketches. Cynthia Dunsford and Laurie Murphy present a whole slew of characters that titillate and stimulate the audience. It is delightful to see the Charlottetown

A Heavenly Blend

Forever Plaid

Review by Jonathan Stewart

The Charlottetown Festival's production of Forever Plaid is everything a play can and should be. In a time when plays are getting more gimmicky, technical, and flashy to compete with Hollywood, Forever Plaid relies on talent and stage charisma to entertain. It's the story of Smudge (Christian Bellsmith), Sparky (Craig Evans), Frankie (Joe Levesque), and

Drive Dull Care

Hold the Haggis

Review by Ivy Wigmore

Summer doldrums got you down? Too hot? Too cold? Need a general tonic and pick-me-up? If you answered "yes" (or "no") to any of the above, head out to Orwell Corner Historic Village Monday night for a performance of "Hold the Haggis."

Hold the Haggis is one current incarnation of the estimable PEI performers Margie Carmichael, Steve Sharratt, Roy Johnstone and
