SUMMERSIDE – The third annual SPC Sundays performance series comes to Summerside Presbyterian Church on Sunday afternoons throughout the month of November.
In anticipation of the upcoming 2014 celebrations, Nancy Beck kicks off the series on Nov. 3 with her one-woman show, “A Rowboat in the Attic.” This fun-filled play revolves around Inkerman House, built by Colonel John Hamilton Gray, chairman of the 1864 Charlottetown Conference, and inhabited by Beck's family for almost a century.
On Nov. 10 audience members are invited to join singer Pamela Campbell for “Wish Me Luck,” an old-fashioned sing-along. The afternoon features standards like “Let Me Call You Sweetheart”, “Heart of My Heart”, and all the wonderful songs of the two world wars, including “The White Cliffs of Dover” and “It's a Long Way to Tipperary.” Words will be provided.
Second-year theatre and dance students from Holland College's School of the Performing Arts take to the stage on Nov. 17 with “All Sorts of SoPA.” These young performers bring their energies and talents to an eclectic mix of songs, many of them from the world of musical theatre.
SPC Sundays wrap up on Nov. 24 with “A Canadian Cabaret,” an afternoon of Canadian songs, stories and monologues, presented by Island performers Brittany Banks, Natalie Sullivan, Noah MacDougall and Andrew Murray. Products of the UPEI music program, all four artists are well-known to Island theatre and music audiences.
SPC Sundays performances take place at 2:30 p.m. and run approximately one hour. Summerside Presbyterian Church is located at 130 Victoria Road. For information and to reserve tickets contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
