Fascinating Maritime Ladies is back!

In 2020, Young At Heart Theatre was thrilled to launch its 15th season with another partnership with Fascinating Ladies. The plan was a tour of seniors’ facilities, community and church halls throughout PEI in March and April. They were able to share Fascinating Maritime Ladies with audiences at four venues before Public Health declared a lockdown due to Covid 19 and the rest of the tour was regrettably postponed. Young At Heart Theatre is so happy to announce they are ready to launch their 2021 season! This year’s tour will be an exciting combination of indoor and outdoor live shows across PEI. They will kick off the tour with a performance of Fascinating Maritime Ladies and special guest Katie McGarry at the Kings Playhouse on April 25th at 2:00pm. Tickets for this special opening night show can be purchased online at kingsplayhouse.com, by phone at 1-888-346-5666, or in person at 65 Grafton St. Georgetown.

Anne Murray, Rita MacNeil, Catherine Mackinnon, The Rankin Family, Edith Butler, and many more artists will be explored, with the Fascinating Ladies’ unique tight harmonies, and lively banter.

Fascinating Maritime Ladies stars Nadine Haddad, Kelley Mooney, and Catherine O’Brien.

The Rules and Regulations for Hanging Out The Wash


Young at Heart Theatre is pleased to be bringing a brand-new musical comedy to seniors all across PEI.

The Rules and Regulations For Hanging Out The Wash, written by Diane Barnes and Wade Lynch, with original music composed by Tyler Casat and Don Fraser, will have its debut through the Month of April, as it tours to long-term care, community care, hospitals, community halls and senior’s clubs.  The play’s content is based on Prince Edward Island history. Research includes newspaper stories, oral history, songs, personal accounts, and provincial archives.

“The play is essentially about the under-appreciated labour performed by women in the last two centuries. The intent is for senior women in care to realize that contemporary Canadians recognize and appreciate their contributions to their families and communities”, says co-writer Wade Lynch. “It’s also a lot of fun, as we enjoy the relationship of two neighbours (with very different opinions and traditions) develop and sweeten throughout the laundry day.”

The Rules and Regulations For Hanging Out the Wash is directed by Marlane O’Brien, and stars Jamie Cordes(who also serves as Musical Director), Brynn Cutcliffe and Marlene Handrahan.

Original music composition by Tyler Casat, Don Fraser and Jamie Cordes.  Arrangements by Jamie Cordes. Set and props by Kathleen Ross, with scenic art by Tammy Peters.
