The 2018 summer season launches on May 22nd with the return of stand-out performer Leisa Way as she joins forces with Fred Smith, Bobby Prochaska, Nathan Smith, and the Wayward Wind Band in their new revue “Across the Pond: The British Invasion”. “The music never stopped, the beat never stopped … this is the music that defined a generation!”
Opening on June 6th, PSFT is thrilled to be producing Norm Foster’s hit comedy “Halfway There” for an extended four-week run … “Romance, gossip, bawdy tales, and friendships that last forever, Norm Foster’s “Halfway There” is a laugh-filled East Coast romp.”
Third up, the Port Stanley Festival Theatre is delighted to be presenting the world premiere of “Buying the Farm” by Gemini Award Winner, Shelley Hoffman and Stephen Sparks. “What’s a bachelor farmer to do when a determined Real Estate agent comes knocking on his door? A comedy about hope, last stands, skunks, and love among the chickens.”
July 25th brings “Book Club”, a brand-new comedy, by Krista Da Silva for an action-packed four-week run. “Three girls, three guys, an exchange of ideas, an exploration of a favourite book… that was the plan, or was it? Everyone gets more than they bargained for when “Book Club” gets out of hand.” A brilliant new comedy from the writer of “Five Alarm”.
Closing out the season comes “Sunshine Express” by Sarah Quick. “A road trip to end all road trips, “Sunshine Express” is the ultimate snowbird getaway”. Four actors take on 30 roles in this rollicking tour de force, as a group of seniors once again take to the road on an annual search for the sun: Florida or bust!
With a varied season, appealing 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 2018.
