…a matinee, a stroll, and a gelato.
We used to live down the road from the Shaw Festival in Niagara-on-the-Lake.
It was a blessing and a curse.
Have I told you how much I love live theatre?
Last week, on a typically gorgeous, N-O-T-L day, we motored around the lake for a day of walking and noshing and theatre.
It might’ve been over the river and through the woods in my imagination.
But we motored.
Peter and the Starcatcher
I have not been entertained so well in a very long time.
It was fast, funny, frenetic.
Wild, readers. Wild!
I loved the modern references and the bare-bones set.
PATS was performed storytelling-style.
The actors were and did all.
They had it.
I was charmed.
I wanted to be a pirate, a mermaid, a clam, an orphan… a girl.
Here’s the behind-the-scenes look…
On stage at the Royal George Theatre from April 8 – November 1.
Help me, Rhonda.
I’m thinking I might go again.
Just as soon as I learn Norse Code.
A stellar performance by a stellar cast.
Yes. I used stellar twice on purpose.

Here be Humpity Day.
Let’s just imagine ourselves right over it.
