A Musical Mess Up at the Guild

An obsession with Debbie Harry of Blondie turns awkward during a meeting after a concert. The sweet and sour notes of a father teaching his daughter how to play guitar. A musical mess up at a small town beauty pageant nets a prize. Do musical tastes predict compatibility in love?

Seven people will share how music has helped shape their lives in ‘Playlist’: Dave Atkinson, Laurie Brinklow, Lindsay Carroll, Laura Chapin, Gordon Cobb, Lori Mayne and Dave Stewart.

“I ran a similar show in Prince Rupert, BC for three years when I was living out there,’ says ‘Playlist’ producer and participant Laura Chapin. ‘It became a very popular event that I was sure would work here.” The main difference with the PEI monologue show is that a theme focused around music has been added, giving the program a through line and a subject for the participants to work with.

“Our first read -throughs were such a delight, with one piece echoing another in small but surprising ways,’ says Chapin. ‘I think everyone came away from the rehearsal feeling pretty excited. We can’t wait to share this show. And I think people will come away from this show thinking about what music has meant to their lives too.”

Proceeds from the 90-minute show on May 14 at 8 PM will go to support PEI Literacy Allianceʼs Summer Tutoring Program for Kids
