Each summer, comedian Patrick Ledwell and musician Mark Haines create a brand-new storytelling set at Harmony House Theatre. The evening is an entertaining blend of stand-up jokes, foot-stomping fiddle tunes, real Island news stories, and plenty of crowd participation.
The Island Summer Review will open Thursday, July 5th.
The show will run three nights a week, each Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday night at 8 p.m., until August 31st.
Tickets are $24 plus fees and HST, with 20%-off ticket specials for the first two weeks in July.
What’s the spirit behind the show? That the stories and songs ring true to the Island, entertain everyone aged 13 to 90, and lift your mood as soon as you step through the theatre door. If your sides feel the laughter, and you’ve held back a tear by the end of the night, The Island Summer Review has given you the greeting we hoped for.
For this upcoming season, the show will take a special look at the connection between the Island and its Atlantic Canadian neighbours. There’s nothing Islanders like better than hopping over to Moncton, or trying to drive in Halifax. This year’s show will have fun seeing the East Coast through a PEI perspective, and finding the heartstrings that pull us closely together.
Summer is a time for reunions, when Islanders make friends and family feel right at home. If you’re looking for that night out together to reconnect, The Island Summer Review puts together a perfect Island welcome, with fresh comedy, traditional music, and everything Prince Edward Island in between.
