‘Princess & The Pea’ com­ing to the stage in North Rus­tico

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - LIFESTYLES -

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”.
