110163359_3146287612090901_2545245432616437214_o.jpg

The Guild brings thrills and adventure to the stage this summer! Amazing Tales of the Atlantic is a live radio play anthology series celebrating the unique residents of the Atlantic. It takes the characters in our community we all know and love and puts them in wild scenarios. Each evening of Amazing Tales of the Atlantic will feature three unique stories and every month audiences will be treated to 3 new chapters of the three ever-evolving tales!

Those tales are:

The DDT Detectives – Set in the wrestling heydays of the 1980’s, Crusher Kevin Cormier and Dashing David Doiron are a hard hitting tag team by night and hard drinking super sleuths by slightly later at night. Kevin and David help the helpless and solve mysteries as they travel from town to town thrilling crowds. It’s the Littlest Hobo meets Murder She Wrote meets Atlantic Grand Prix Wrestling.

The B’ylight Zone – There’s some friggin’ thing on the hull of the lobster boat! The B’ylight Zone is a show in the style of the Twilight Zone or Black Mirror and puts colorful maritime locations and characters at the centre of all of the freaky deaky scenarios. Each episode is it’s own thrilling self contained story and set of characters.

Anne of the Green Planet – A precocious human orphan named Anne from the planet Nova Nova Scotia is taken in by a brother and sister scientist duo who live on the space station Avonlea, which orbits a mysterious planetoid called P31. Between school and duties in the lab, Anne and her new friend GilBot find themselves in all sorts of scientific adventures.

Two Tonics This Summer

Victoria Playhouse Announces 2020 Season

The Victoria Playhouse has announced its 39th season featuring two contemporary comedies and a change in format. The Victoria Playhouse Festival 2020 will be presented in the repertory   style, meaning the two plays will run on an alternating schedule all summer. Emily Smith, Executive Director of the Victoria Playhouse, commented on the change of scheduling from previous years. “Under this new format, Islanders will have more options to choose from each week and more time during our busy PEI summer to see everything they want to see at the Playhouse.”

Off the Grid by Fredericton playwright John Spurway and Popcorn Falls by James Hindman will play June 25 to September 6.  Off the Grid tells the story of Marty and Leonard who have agreed to spend a week in a secluded off-the-grid cabin while Marty writes an article on self-sufficient living. After meeting Lowell, their reclusive neighbor, Leonard begins to suspect he might be hiding something. But Lowell is not the only one keeping secrets! The Wellington Advertiser called the 2019 world premiere of Off the Grid a “compelling and heartfelt tale” and “laugh-out-loud funny”.  The Victoria Playhouse production will be the Maritime premiere of this new play.

Popcorn Falls features one small town, two medium-sized actors and twenty-one over-the-top characters. Down on its luck, Popcorn Falls has lost its namesake and could be turned into a sewage treatment plant by its bully neighbor. The residents’ last chance to save the town is a large grant that can only be used if they produce a play… in one week. Led by the Mayor and the local handyman, the enterprising townsfolk try to rise to the challenge. The New York Stage Review wrote that Popcorn Falls is “a perfect tonic to restore faith in humanity” and Broadway Radio said, “I haven’t heard laughter quite this hard in a long, long time!”.

In addition to Off the Grid and Popcorn Falls, the Playhouse will once again be presenting its popular Monday Night Concert Series featuring Canadian and international artists, as well as September programming. For more information, visit victoriaplayhouse.com.
