Rumors

Directed by Marlane O’Brien

rumors_600x600-1-min

At a large, tastefully-appointed Sneden’s Landing townhouse, the Deputy Mayor of New York has just “accidentally” shot himself. Though only a flesh wound, four couples are about to experience a severe attack of FARCE. Gathering for their tenth wedding anniversary, the host lies bleeding in the other room, and his wife is nowhere in sight. His lawyer Ken and Ken’s wife, Chris, must get “the story” straight before the other guests arrive. As the confusions and mis-communications mount, the evening spins off into classic farcical hilarity.

While this play is a farce, there are mature themes and occasional off-colour language. Not recommended for small children. “PG13” – parents use discretion.

After multiple years selling out this annual cabaret, Hastelow has planned the 2019 edition for The Mack, on Friday, January 11 at 7:30 p.m. Now, with tickets virtually sold out, Confederation Centre has added a second night for the show, Saturday January 12 at 7:30 p.m.

For the cabarets, Hastelow will welcome special guest Alicia Toner, a 2018 Music PEI Award-winner for her debut album I Learned the Hard Way, and a Charlottetown Festival veteran from Million Dollar Quartet, Spoon River, Evangeline, and more. Toner is also releasing a brand new single ‘Dangerous Home’ on January 11. Hastelow and Toner will come together to sing ‘Shallow’ from the recent Hollywood hit, A Star is Born.

Hastelow will also collaborate with special guest and fellow Islander, Tara MacLean, an award-winning singer-songwriter and star of her own show, Atlantic Blue. He will also welcome a guest band of all-star musicians, including Craig Fair (recent music director for The Charlottetown Festival), Andrew Murray, Jon Matthews, and Trevor Grant. Some of the choice musical selections on the night will include Fleetwood Mac, John Legend, Ed Sheeran, The Cranberries, Dave Matthews Band, Miley Cyrus, and more.

In 2017, Hastelow released his self-titled debut album, recorded at the Sound Mill Recording Studio, garnering three Music PEI Award nominations. After studying musical theatre at Sheridan, the Charlottetown native has appeared in theatre festivals across the country, including with Vancouver Opera, Neptune, Aquarius, and three seasons at Shaw Festival.

He also recently starred as the lead of Jesus Christ Superstar at the Centre and will star again as Hamlet in Kronborg—The Hamlet Rock Musical and as Sky in Mamma Mia! at the 2019 Festival. Other previous Festival credits include Ring of Fire and two seasons as Gilbert Blythe in Anne of Green Gables—The Musical™.

Special thanks are extended to the Department of Canadian Heritage, the Province of Prince Edward Island, and the City of Charlottetown, as well to media sponsors Ocean 100, Hot 105.5, and The Guardian. This concert is presented as part of Sobeys LIVE @ the Centre.

Rainbows in November

Rainbow Valley is a new musical with a truly PEI flavor. Based on the book of the same title by L.M. Montgomery, and adapted for the stage by Hank Stinson, Rainbow Valley brings a cast of delightful Montgomery characters to life, and is sure to delight audiences of all ages.

Director Hank Stinson describes the story: “There are many stories in Rainbow Valley. I’ve decided to focus this play on the story of the new minister, his children, and the people they most directly encounter in a small community where the past rules the present. Life presents them with gifts of opportunity and they must decide whether these ‘gifts’ are a blessing or a curse. The children have no problem knowing which is which. The adults, on the other hand, have history which weighs them down, makes receiving these gifts much more difficult. And yet, there is a moment in time when the gift received, (whether in thought, word or action,) will bring them happiness.”

Presented by ACT (a community theatre), Rainbow Valley will be the latest in ACT’s tradition of musicals, and promises to be a strong follow-up to Charlottetown’s summer roster of L.M. Montgomery-based theatre. The show strongly features a young company comprised of Hannah McGaughey, Joe Moak, Brooklyn Riley, George Woods, Fiona Moak, James Ronahan, Jace MacPherson, and Keili Johnston. Also starring Colin Hood, Samantha Bruce, Corin McFadden, and Shelley Tamtom.

Don’t miss this exciting new show at The Guild through November 17th! Young and old will love joining these touching characters as they find happiness down in Rainbow Valley.

Don’t Miss the Myth

A wonderfully titled comedy about parents who know too much or know too little about their kids and the journey of discovery, or: how to pull your head out of the sand and stop being an ostrich.

MOTO_poster-with-blurbs-Copy

But wait, the show tells us that is a myth. Just as it’s a myth to call this play by Matt Murray just a comedy. This is a comedy with heart.

The zany insightful show is at the Victoria Theatre through September 2nd.

Red Dirt Tales Told

“The stories told here are all very different on the surface but there is a common thread running through them and that thread is one of perseverance and determination.”

Stories from the Red Dirt Road is a beautiful tapestry of women’s stories. See it at the Mack this summer. — with Katie Kerr.
