When the Price is All in Your Head

LIVE @the Centre is taking a new approach to ticket pricing with a Pay What You Will (PWYW) offer to see Compagnia Baccalà’s  PSS…PSS on March 21 at 6:00 p.m. in the Homburg Theatre. This is the only stop in the Maritimes for the duo on their Canadian tour.

“With PWYW theatre-goers of all walks of life can pay a price that is both fair and affordable,” says Darcy Campbell, Director for LIVE @the Centre. He goes on to explain, “By offering these special performances at a price our patrons set for themselves, we are hoping to reach new audiences.”

On the night of the show, patrons will receive an envelope to insert cash or use the slip inside to pay by credit card. Patrons are then asked to drop their envelopes in the bin located in the lobby, or hand them to staff who will be collecting them in baskets. 

Inspired by Chaplin, Keaton and the stars of silent films, this Swiss, two-man team gives a timeless performance of enthralling physicality and exquisite expression. Inventive, exciting, ridiculous, this breathtaking show of mishaps and acrobatics entitled PSS…PSS will have you laughing long after you leave the theatre. Winner of 15 international prizes, including the Cirque Du Soleil prize, PSS…PSS is brilliant, tender, hilarious and ingenious, and unlike anything you have ever seen.

End of an Error

The trio of award winning fiddler Kendra MacGillivray with long-time CBC Compass personalities Bruce Rainnie and Kevin “Boomer” Gallant have been a favourite of Harbourfront Theatre audiences for more than a decade. Rainnie chose the tongue-in-cheek title for the final show, and all three have fond words about the impending performance.

Bruce: “It only seems fitting that we have one final farewell show at the Harbourfront Theatre in Summerside. We’ve had such wonderful moments in that theatre over the years. One more show will be the perfect way to say, ‘Thank you, and hope to see you again.’ ”

Boomer: “It’ll be awesome to take the stage one more time with Kendra and Bruce. I anticipate lots of costumes, lots of laughs, lots of spontaneity and lots of great music. Can’t wait!”

Kendra: “The annual shows at the Harbourfront have always been my favorites. To have the chance to do one more is very special for all of us. We plan to make it very memorable.”\

End of an Error is at the Harbourfront Theatre September 30 and October 1 at 7:30 PM.
