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.
