‘Princess & The Pea’ coming to the stage in North Rustico
Cat’s Pajamas Theatre Company is presenting its production of “Princess & The Pea”, by Rebecca L. Byars and Lane Riosley, at Watermark Theatre, North Rustico, later this month.
There will be four shows, all at 10:30 a.m.: Aug. 10, 12, 17 and 19.
“The Princess and the Pea” is an adaptation of the classic tale in which a young prince searches far and wide for true love, regardless of the dis- satisfaction of his mother, The Queen. This tale is sure to make the audience giggle through at exploration of themes of acceptance, true love and the importance of a good night’s rest.
Directed by Suzanne Wilkie and Becca Griffin, it stars Robyn Vienot, Griffin, Brielle Ansems and Carly Billings.
Tickets are $10, plus HST and service charge.

Wilkie is so excited to be directing her first show with The Cat’s Pajamas. A native of P.E.I., after a brief hiatus in Toronto she has returned to this beautiful Island. Her favourite place to rehearse in Charlottetown is right smack-dab in the middle of a park.
Griffin, leader of The Cat’s PJs, is a local entertainer who loves to laugh and play music. She appeared in last year’s production of “The Ugly Duckling”.
Ansems is a local singersongwriter who loves to connect with people through music and theatre. She’s excited to be heading to Holland College’s School of Performing Arts Theatre Program this fall.
Veinot, another island girl who loves music and theatre, was in The Cat’s Pajamas production of “A Hurried History by the Loonies that Live Here” and in the Confederation Centre’s Christmas productions of “Robin Hood” and “Aladdin”.
