In Belles Soeurs: The Musical we meet working-class housewife Germaine Lauzon, played by Canadian treasure and Dora Award-winner Lisa Horner (Little Mosque on the Prairie; Kinky Boots; Wizard of Oz; Les Mis). Germaine wins one million department store stamps – the Jamie Oliver stamps of the 1960’s – and invites her Montreal family and friends over to celebrate. But pride + greed = envy! The women complain aggressively, overshare shamelessly, and fantasize freely while secretly coveting Germaine’s precious stamps.

Richly textured and outrageously fun, Belles Sœurs will sweep you through joy and drama, laughter and tears, all resonating through the medium of the modern musical. Audiences will fall in love with hits such as ‘I Want it All,’ ‘Johnny,’ and the incredible ‘Ode to Bingo,’ leaving them humming for days.

This touching musical is based on Michel Tremblay’s internationally­-celebrated play and is produced by Copa de Oro and the Segal Centre for the Performing Arts. Adapted and directed by René Richard Cyr in collaboration with the award winning duo Neil Bartram and Brian Hill, Tremblay’s tale takes on a whole new dimension in this musical Opening Night Reviews calls: “Hilarious, a landmark piece of theatre…a quiet riot of piety and a cautionary tale of commercialism.”

The Charlottetown Festival is presented by CIBC. Confederation Centre wishes to recognize the Department of Canadian Heritage, the Government of P.E.I., and the City of Charlottetown for their continued support. Media sponsors are The Guardian, Hot 105.5, Ocean 100, and CTV.
