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.

Fascinating Maritime Ladies celebrates some of the wonderful female singers and songwriters from the East Coast and Quebec. 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.

Young at Heart Theatre is a charity organization dedicated to enriching the lives of seniors though theatre, music and social interaction.
“ We are the only group of this type east of Ontario. We tour our shows to long-term care facilities, hospitals, community halls and places where seniors gather. This allows many seniors who may have mobility or other health issues to participate.” Says Board Chair Steve Forbes.

Young at Heart Theatre encourages Seniors groups, service clubs and others interested in booking a show, to contact Ben at: ben@yahtheatre.com or visit our website: www.yahtheatre.com
