So The Story Goes...

Summerside is the place to be for sensational step dancing, fiddle and side-busting stories.

Keeping the tradition of storytelling and gossip alive on the Island, the Tellers will take you back with anecdotes of down-home, politics, PEI drama and more with regular knee-slappers and even a tear or two.

Highland Storm

Highland Storm 2024

Highland Storm

Highland Storm – an exhilarating evening of Celtic music and dance that will captivate the audience with stunning displays of the Highland and step dancers and breathtaking sounds from the pipes and drums.  Combine that with the haunting melodies of beautiful traditional songs and the consuming fire of the fiddle, this will be a moving authentic experience.
The audience will be transported to a pivotal time in PEI over 250 years ago, when 3 ships; the Annabella, the Edinburgh and the Falmouth, arrived having carried families from their homeland in Scotland to a new land with little more than the clothes on their backs.
Imagine arriving on these shores in the bleak autumn, having to clear land, cut wood and build a home in order to survive the unforgiving winters of PEI. What would that first year be like?
The story of the Scots arriving on PEI will be performed by The College of Piping’s instructors and students and featuring fiddler Gilbert Arsenault and vocalist Christine Gallant. Highland Storm is directed by Peter Gallant.
Prepare to sit tight and hold on…there’s a Storm coming!

That's The Island For Ya Deer!

That’s The Island For Ya Deer!

Featuring Mike Pendergast and Shane Pendergast. 

This show is quintessential PEI. It’s the PEI you THOUGHT you knew with the songs behind the stories and the stories behind the songs. Shane Pendergast notes that, “there’s a real range of emotions in the songs that we have chosen for this show. From goofy songs to tender

ballads, there should be a healthy mix of laughter and tears.” It’s an evening full of musical curves and detours along the Island way. As Mike Pendergast explains, “The Island is a pretty special place so we let its charms take centre stage. It is a place that still surprises people whether from here or from away.” So, sit back and enjoy the view with PEI legendary entertainer, storyteller and musician Mike Pendergast and one of Atlantic Canada’s finest young folk troubadours, Shane Pendergast. This is ESSENTIAL PEI content at its best!

Port-La-Joye

July 27-28

Port-la-Joye-ticket pro.indd

Port-La-Joye

In this epic musical, the first three scenes tell the story of the arrival of the French on Saint Croix Island in the Bay of Fundy, the settlement of Beaubassin (Amherst, N.S.) and the 1755 deportation of Acadians from Grand-Pré, N.S., by British forces. The play then moves on to the lesser-known story of the deadlier 1758 deportation of the Acadians from ÎleSaint-Jean (the former name of Prince Edward Island) at Port-La-Joye (near Charlottetown). It’s a poignant and action-filled storyline with music and dance. Written by Paul Daniel Gallant with music and choral arrangements by Scott MacMillan, Tanya Bernard and Debbie Rousselle-Montgomery.

Note: This play is performed primarily in French but is very visual with music, dance and action scenes. An English summary is provided for spectators who wish to have one.

 

Dans cette production théâtrale musicale épique, les trois premières scènes racontent l’arrivée des Français sur l’Île Sainte-Croix dans la Baie de Fundy, l’établissement de Beaubassin (Amherst, N.-É.) et la déportation en 1755 des Acadiens de Grand-Pré, N.- É., par les forces britanniques. La pièce passe ensuite à l’histoire moins connue de la déportation davantage meurtrière des Acadiens de l’Île-Saint-Jean (l’ancien nom de l’Île-du-PrinceÉdouard) en 1758 à Port-La-Joye (près de Charlottetown). C’est une histoire poignante et pleine d’action avec musique et danse. Texte et musique de Paul Daniel Gallant avec arrangements choraux et musique de Scott MacMillan, Tanya Bernard and Debbie RousselleMontgomery
