Here’s Looking At You

PEI Photo Club 36th Annual Print Show
April 18, 2018

This year’s show has taken a different approach from previous years.
Rather than holding a competition with judges, sponsors and prizes, this show will simply showcase the work of the many talented club members.
“We wanted this year’s show to be more a reflection of who we are as a community of photographers says club president, Paul Vreeland. No winners, no losers. Just an exhibition of what we’re all about.”

There will be four broad categories in the show this year, including landscape, people, nature, and photographer’s choice. The executive of the PEI Photo Club have been working to encourage the greatest possible participation.  According to Rick Dunphy, chair of the Photo Show Committee, “We have been helping members select
and edit their best images. We want everyone to be happy about their contributions and to celebrate their accomplishments. I think that’s what this year’s show is really all about.”

Everyone is invited to visit the print show during gallery hours (check www.theguildpei.com for information) and to vote for your favourite photo.
The PEI Photo Club is grateful to all of the volunteers who make this show possible.

Robert Tsonos Returns to the Stage

Watermark Theatre is delighted to announce that Artistic Director Robert Tsonos will play the lead part of Tony Wendice in Dial “M” For Murder by Frederick Knott in the company’s 2018 summer season.

b208cc3f-f657-404c-828e-6c5a3ba9a2fd

Originally hired as an actor by Watermark in 2014, Robert has not appeared on stage with the company since taking over the role as Artistic Director almost three years ago. Audiences will remember him as Lord Goring in “An Ideal Husband”, Bill Starbuck in “The Rainmaker”, and Richard The Lionheart in “The Lion In Winter”.

“I’m thrilled to be back on stage”, says Tsonos, “it just seemed like the right time and the right role for me to act again”. “It allows me to stay connected with our audiences and reminds me what it’s like to be an actor with this company, entertaining audiences every night”.

Robert’s other acting credits include theatres across the country and internationally. He played the lead role of Macbeth at the Hong Kong Arts Centre and Hamlet with the Tokyo International Players as well as appearing in “Problem Child”, “The Domino Heart”, and “For The Pleasure of Seeing Her Again” at the Canadian Embassy Theatre in Tokyo. Canadian credits include “Three Days of Rain” at Sudbury Theatre Centre and “Othello” at Persephone Theatre. Film and television credits include “Reign”, “Packed to the Rafters”, “Rake”, “Push”, and “Warehouse 13”.

Dial “M” For Murder by Frederick Knott, written in 1952, tells the frightening story of a husband planning the murder of his adulterous wife. He arranges the perfect crime by blackmailing a scoundrel he used to know into strangling her at a time when he has the perfect alibi. Of course, things do not turn out as planned. The play that inspired Alfred Hitchcock’s film classic weaves an ever-tightening web of danger and deception. Full of twists, turns, and suspense, this gripping thriller will keep you on the edge of your seat.

“The role of Tony Wendice is a challenging one”, says Tsonos, “he’s a sly, conniving scoundrel, but is extremely smart and charming at the same time.  I can’t wait to start rehearsals”.

Watermark’s 2018 summer season runs from June 26th to September 1st, 2018.

For more information, or to set up an interview with Mr. Tsonos please contact Andrea Surich at 902-963-3963 or generalmanager@watermarktheatre.com
