Sprucing Up the Past

Amy recently spent some time touching up the faded lettering on this plaque that honours veterans of the First World War from the community of Victoria. A second plaque at the Victoria Playhouse honours Second World War and Korean Conflict veterans. Many of the family names on these plaques can still be found in the community today!

We welcomed three of the Island’s most talented singer-songwriters to the Victoria Playhouse for the last two days. They were making a video on our stage. It was wonderful to hear live music in our beautiful hall again and we look forward to more events happening soon. Thanks Catherine MacLellan, Tim Chaisson and Rachel Beck for choosing to come to Victoria.

A Wayward Feather

117292526_10157240932245598_1362762877334230270_o.jpg

This summer at the Victoria Playhouse we are reaching out to friends who have worked with us in past seasons and asked them to share their stories of the time spent with us here at the Playhouse.

Trilby Jeeves performed with us for three seasons in the eighties. She played the female lead roles in ‘Talley’s Folly’, ‘Sinners’ and ‘Seamarks’.
Here is an excerpt from her reminiscences The complete story will appear on our new website coming soon.

“The best feeling was being on that lovely stage when the audience couldn’t stop laughing. My advice from the comedy ‘Sinners’ that my friend, Michel Houde, and I were in, is to not wear a costume with lots of feathers. Seeing one sticking out from Michel’s sweaty forehead as he made a “serious” phone call took great effort for me to not break out laughing. He had no idea it was there. He wondered why I whacked him in the head as we ran “up the stairs” (back stage) to return to the bedroom set. That feather had to go!
