Don’t go ‘Shack Wacky’

Pa­trick Led­well and Mark Haines try­ing to help Is­lan­ders get through win­ter with new show

Journal Pioneer - - ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT -

In Jan­uary, Is­lan­ders bat­ten down the hatches for what win­ter can throw at them. But by the first of Fe­bru­ary, it’s high time to throw those doors open and get out for a spir­ited night. Join co­me­dian Pa­trick Led­well and mu­si­cian Mark Haines for “The Shack Wacky Re­view,” a show cel­e­brat­ing Is­lan­ders and the qual­i­ties that help peo­ple live, drive and sur­vive on P.E.I. year round.

“The Shack Wacky Re­view” runs Feb. 2 and 3 at the P.E.I. Brew­ing Com­pany, 96 Kens­ing­ton Rd., Char­lot­te­town. Orig­i­nally sched­uled for one date, the Satur­day show old out quickly, so the Feb. 2 date was added in re­sponse to in­ter­est. Ad­vance tick­ets are rec­om­mended.

“As Is­lan­ders, we go a bit stir­crazy by the time Fe­bru­ary ar­rives,” says Led­well. “So the idea be­hind this show is sim­ple. Let’s get friends out around ta­bles to­gether, good drink in hand, and host a barn-rat­tling night of en­ter­tain­ment.” Led­well and Haines have es­tab­lished a P.E.I. tra­di­tion with “The Is­land Sum­mer Re­view,” which played five sold-out sea­sons at Har­mony House in Hunter River.

“We’re al­ready writ­ing for the new sum­mer sea­son. I’m ex­cited to try new pieces and re­visit a few favourites in this lively venue,” adds Haines. Their only Char­lot­te­town show this sea­son, “The Shacky Wacky Re­view” will shovel through a win­tery Is­land land­scape for jokes, songs and com­bi­na­tions of the two.

The show be­gins at 8 p.m. Doors open at 7 p.m.

Ad­vance tick­ets are avail­able now on­line at PEIbrew­ing­com­, in per­son at the P.E.I. Brew­ing Com­pany or by call­ing 902-629-BREW (2739).


Pa­trick Led­well and Mark Haines per­form a salute to those who drive to Summerside.
