Hot on the heels of an extremely successful 2009 summer season which saw record attendance during its last two shows, the Port Stanley Festival Theatre is pleased to announce its 2010 Playbill.
The 2010 summer season will lead off on May 19th with world renown Elvis impersonator Roy Leblanc featured in “Blue Suede Shoes: A Tribute to The King”, a concert based celebration of the life of Elvis Presley, by co-creators Chris McHarge, and London’s own Colin Stewart. Creators of 2006’s “Vegas Knights”, and 2008’s “Memories of the Rat Pack” McHarge and Stewart have an excellent track record in Port Stanley and after sold out runs throughout Ontario in 2009, “Blue Suede Shoes: A Tribute to The King” promises to be one of their best.
Second up, PSFT is proud to be producing the world premier production of “Love Shack” by London playwright Michael Wilmot in a full two-act version. A broad comedy about attempted infidelity, motels, bible salesmen, and the ups and downs of married life, “Love Shack” is ultimately a romantic comedy with a curious sense of innocence and morality, and against all odds … a happy ending.
Opening on June 30th, the Port Stanley Festival Theatre is delighted to be presenting the Tribal Productions 2009 smash hit musical, “BBQ King” by Mark Brownell and Steve Thomas. “BBQ King” follows the trials and tribulations of self-styled BBQ king, Bo, as he tries to win the hearts of neighbors, family, and friends, in an ultimate showdown for grilling bragging rights. A wonderful blend of comedy and music, “BBQ King” reigns supreme in a swirling blend of action as “Cottage Life” meets the “Food Network”
July 21st brings Sarah Quicks’s “Knickers: A Brief Comedy” to the Port Stanley stage. Four women play dozens of characters in Sarah Quick’s sparkling new comedy that looks at the economy in a very different way. A Northern Ontario mill town with no mill searches for new opportunities in the land of designer underwear, government funding, and roadside attractions … a theatrical tour de force!
Norm Foster’s classic comedy “Wrong For Each Other” will close off the 2010 season. Once again, Norm Foster proves why he is Canada’s most popular playwright, with his classic romantic comedy “Wrong For Each Other”. Deft one liners, finely drawn characters, and a surprising conclusion, “Wrong For Each Other” has something for everyone.
With a varied season, which should appeal to single ticket buyers, subscribers, and tour groups alike, the Port Stanley Festival Theatre looks forward to providing another season of top quality entertainment in 2010.
