It’s time to start planning

Improv from Spotlight School of Arts at the 2017 Festival (photo: David Gladstone)Prince Edward Island’s annual celebration of World Theatre Day is the PEI Community Theatre Festival will be held March 17 at the Carrefour in Charlottetown. It will fill the Saturday afternoon with a play running every 45 minutes or so, with a social time between performances. Refreshments will be provided to the players. Performers will be given helpful adjudication. Previous mentors have been people like Wade Lynch, Monique Lafontaine, Richard Haines and Laura Bird. 

The Festival is a showcase for community theatre—a chance for actors and off-stage production volunteers to perform beyond their usual home audience, to rub shoulders with and learn from one another and get constructive feedback.

Last year the six performance were a mix of slapstick, drama, legend, satire, even some improv. Photos can be seen at www.actpei.ca. Click on Gallery and scroll down to Community Theatre Festival.

Organizers are inviting amateur (for-the-love-of-it) theatre groups to express interest and get working on a play. What’s wanted are short plays or excerpts—no more than a half-hour—of any kind: comedy, quasi-improv, gripping drama, mystery, slice-of-life, political satire, romance, family-friendly or avant-garde/mature. It can also be an opportunity for a group to preview or reprise a show they’ve developed for another presentation. Mentoring guidance is available on request.
