Tuesday, November 5, 2019
The 2020 summer season launches on May 19th with the “perfect kick-off” as London’s own, Rick Kish and LINK theatre brings their retro magic to the stage with “The Crooner Show”, a concert style show that celebrates the greatest crooners of all time.
On May 26th, comedian Chris Gibbs returns to the Port Stanley stage with “Chris Gibbs: A Legal Alien”, a family-friendly stand-up comedy that playfully explores what it truly means to be Canadian. “From England, the land of William Shakespeare, to Canada, the land of William Shatner comes a stand-up comedy show about Canadians, by someone who isn’t one!”
Opening on June 3rd, PSFT is thrilled to be producing a Norm Foster hit comedy starring Norm Foster himself! “Jonas and Barry in the Home” will take the stage for an extended four-week run. “Like oil and water, two seniors fight for love, friendship and happy endings in assisted living in this hilarious new “buddy story.”
Fourth up, the Port Stanley Festival Theatre is delighted to be presenting the world premiere of “Our House” by Murray Furrow starting July 1st. “Retirement! It’s what you’ve worked for, it’s your golden years, it’s a life in the sunshine …or is it?” Rose and Brian are finding out that retirement might not be all its cracked up to be and take steps to find new interests in life. A comedy about the meaning of home.
July 22nd brings “Hurry Hard”, by up and coming playwright Kristen Da Silva. How’s it going to end? On the eve of demolition, the beleaguered Stayner Curling Club tries to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat and triumph over arch nemesis, Meaford. Will romance, past hope, and family ties win it all, or will history repeat itself in this truly Canadian comedy?
Closing out the season comes Dan Needles’ “The Perils of Persephone” by the playwright who brought us the Wingfield series and last season’s “Ed’s Garage”. A comedy about fossils, radioactive material, cows, toxic dumps and … damage control.”
