7th Story Window Ledge Story

March 8, 2019 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm at The Guild
Fast-paced and full of energy, this sophisticated satire takes place on the window ledge of a seven-storey apartment building where a man is contemplating suicide.

Unknown

Endlessly interrupted by a variety of quirky, self-absorbed tenants, he becomes drawn into the absurdity of their daily lives.

7 STORIES is a meta-theatrical gem of a black comedy, full of eccentric characters with a wistfully existential conclusion.

This is the Festival’s first full-length production, and first Canadian work. 2019 marks 30 years since the premiere of this Canadian classic by multi-award winning Canadian playwright Morris Panych.

LIGHTNov15
“Light is the thread we find woven through all the different celebrations of this season,” says Parent. The theme also ties into a holiday tradition in the Watermark’s community: North Rustico’s home lighting displays. “We can’t think of a better way for your family to cap off the evening than taking in the splendour of the lights.”
The two were last seen making Island audiences laugh and smile as L.M.’s quintessential kindred spirits in Anne & Gilbert. “The summer season was so easy-going, fun, and full of chemistry”, says Griffin. “It only seems natural for us to continue collaborating through the winter because, let’s face it… we’re hilarious together.” Joining them for LIGHT is fellow A&G cast-mate  and musical director, Aaron Crane.
Neither Griffin nor Parent is new to the Watermark Theatre. Parent was a company member for 6 seasons, while Griffin performed children’s theatre there over two summers with her company, Cat’s Pajamas Theatre Company.
Tickets are $20, all fees included, and sold at the door. There will be free cookies and cider, as well as a cash bar. Watermark Theatre is located at 57 Churchill Ave in North Rustico, PE.
Becca Griffin and Rebecca Parent are Island-based theatre arts professionals. In LIGHT, they combine their talents as well as their personal artistic intentions: bringing together families and involving communities through the performing arts.

The Cat’s Pajamas is a theatre for young audiences company created by Rebecca Griffin, a Holland College Theatre Performance alumni (2014). To this date, the company has produced three shows at The Guild theatre in Charlottetown. With the help of actors Kaitlyn Post and Jacob Durdan, and director Sarah MacPhee (all Holland College alumni as well), The Cat’s Pajamas Theatre Company is slowly, but surely moving up.

The Ugly Duckling is an adaptation of the classic tale written by Pamela Campbell and Nancy Beck. This quick production is jam-packed full of music, comedy, and a plethora of barnyard characters. Sure to be fun for all!

Kaitlyn Post is originally from Sussex, New Brunswick. You can also find her performing in Feast Dinner Theatre’s production of Scandalous at The Rodd Charlottetown.

Becca Griffin is a mainland native, but an islander at heart. She’s worked with various theatres across the Island, especially the Victoria Playhouse, appearing in a few of their Norm Foster pieces.

Hailing from Saint John, New Brunswick, Jacob Durdan has performed in many Island productions, including Cinderella: A Fairly Tale, Aladdin: Another Fairly Tall Tale, and Ladies and a Gent.

‘Melville Boys’ Opens 35th Victoria Season

“Norm Foster is Canada’s most produced playwright,” says Pat Stunden Smith, Managing Director of the Victoria Playhouse. “He has a great instinct for dialogue and his scripts are at once funny and real.”

The Melville Boys features Jeremie Saunders and Becca Griffin, reprising the dynamic onstage rapport that made 2014’s Kiss the Moon, Kiss the Sun such an outstanding success. Newcomers to the Victoria Playhouse, Corey Turner and Helen Killorn, round out this vibrant cast.
