Busy summer for Don’t Ye Know Theatre Company
The Don’t Ye Know Theatre Company present its 2015 summer stock program, including the production of “Far Out! It’s the 70’s!” and free puppet shows for the family.
Don’t Ye Know Theatre Company is training the future of live entertainment in the Eastern Kings community by giving experience to some of Prince Edward Island’s youth in the world of acting, dancing, singing and the technical aspects of show business.
The apprentices will get a feeling for what a job in the entertainment industry is like, as well as being exposed to the music and lifestyle of the 1970s era in eastern P.E.I.
Along with stage experience, the troupe is getting experience in touring, taking their show on the road to both St. Peter’s Courthouse Theatre and Souris Live’s Main Stage.
“I like being part of this company, everyone is really friendly, and the cast is so close, says Emmy Mayock, one of this year’s performers. “The show is very stylized and I’m excited to perform!”
After last year’s successful program, the company is continuing to develop its summer shows this year with “Far Out! It’s the 70’s” featuring hit songs from that decade.
Also in this year’s production is “Gossip Line Exchange” a oneact comedic play, written by artistic director Susan Hammondwhich tells of life in rural P.E.I. in the 1970s and the role of the party phone lines in the community. The company is also continuing to put on its free puppet shows at the Elmira Railway Museum. These shows have become a summer tradition in the community, educating show goers on Canadian history and culture.
