The River Clyde Flock

The Flock was an adaptation of the March of the Crows for the 2020 Art In The Open . Art à ciel ouvert festival. Created by Megan Stewart, Ian McFarlane and Laura Stinson in association with The River Clyde Pageant. The Flock brought together an ensemble of stiltwalkers, puppeteers and musicians to create a raucous, massive and spectacular procession of crows, keeping the spirit of the original March alive during the covid-19 pandemic.We set up our studio in the Charlottetown Seaport, transforming it into a hub for puppet building, costume creation and rehearsals. We received incredible logistical & volunteer support from Art in the Open in the lead-up and during the event. On the night of the event, we processed through the streets of Charlottetown, making stops for scenes and public interactions before coming to roost at Victoria Park. We’ll be releasing a short documentary about The Flock on December 1st for Giving Tuesday!

Another Sketchy Christmas

Another Sketchy Xmas!

In the Awhile Ago, Charlottetown’s Sketch-22 produced the theatrical comedy A Sketchy Xmas. It was irreverent, audacious, undoubtedly a little bit sacrilegious, and hugely popular. Now, Sketch-22 alumni Rob MacDonald and Graham Putnam — along with a cast of almost two dozen — are remounting it, updated and bigger and better than ever.

Come along for this hilarious donkey ride to Bethlehem as Another Sketchy Xmas tackles the story of the birth of the baby Jesus, featuring a suspicious Joseph, a no nonsense Mary, stoner shepherds, an exhausted angel and arrogant wisemen. Meanwhile in current times, a rough and tumble Charlottetown family learns the true meaning of Christmas despite power outages, a lack of liquor, familial bickering, and the interference of their oddball boarder from Norway.

Tickets are $25! Available at the door, or in advance at The Guild Box Office, by calling 902-620-3333!

The Guild requires patrons to wear a mask upon entering and exiting the building until they are sitting in their seats, and when they are unable to physically distance. 
Staff are to wear masks when ushering and when they are unable to physically distance.
