CBC National was recently on PEI for Hockey Day In Canada. While they were here they took an interest in Young At Heart Musical Theatre and they work we are doing.
On With The Show
Fascinating Ladies is going on the road again!
Young At Heart Musical Theatre for Seniors’ production of Fascinating Ladies, written by Catherine O’Brien and conceived by Ms. O’Brien and Julain Molnar, will be touring Prince Edward Island after a successful run earlier this year.
We will be presenting a full-length two act version of Fascinating Ladies at the following locations this fall:
The Guild, Charlottetown – October 15th 7:30 pm
Harbourfront Theatre, Summerside – October 16th 2pmhttp://www.harbourfronttheatre.com/fascinating.html
Harmony House Theatre –Hunter River – October 20th 8pm
Kings Playhouse, Georgetown – October 21 and 22nd 8pm
We are delighted to have Islander Marlene Handrahan join our cast with Catherine O’Brien and Amy Reitsma. Audiences will appreciate the wonderful three-part harmonies arranged by Sean Ferris. Fascinating Ladies will be directed by Martha Irving.
When three cousins get together to sing at their grandmother’s 100th birthday party, some unexpected secrets get revealed as they travel down memory lane through her trunks and journals. As they explore their grandmother’s life through song, their own hopes, fears, and secrets are revealed as well. It’s a delightful journey through a life and decades of music.
In Act Two the three cousins put on a fabulous concert featuring hits likeMr. Sandman, Silver Bells and Golden Needles, and Sincerely.
Here are some comments from our show in March:
“The singing was very impressive. The complex storyline, delivered by only three talented women, was fascinating, ladies.”- Erdeen Martin
“BRAVO for a show well done and conceived! Lovely selection of songs for your harmonies and storyline.” – Kathleen Ross
“What a wonderful performance…. I hate to admit it, but they brought tears to my eyes several times and when all three sang together it sounded like one voice.” – Ted Picard
Young At Heart Musical Theatre for Seniors, Inc., a non-profit charity organization, produces original Canadian musicals and presents them to isolated seniors who are living in community care centres, manors, seniors’ residences and other venues where seniors gather. Our shows are designed to stimulate seniors’ minds, spirits and imaginations, often taken them back to a time gone by.
Young At Heart Musical Theatre for Seniors is supported by the Seniors Secretariat of PEI and The Rotary Club of Charlottetown Royalty.
The proceeds from the performances of Fascinating Ladies will go towards future shows for seniors. Our next production, Canada In Love, is scheduled to tour to island senior facilities in Feb and March, 2012.
