After a seven year hiatus, Robert Winslow's production of The Cavan Blazers is back at 4th Line Theatre from August 2nd through 27th. The play is about the gritty religious conflict between the Catholic and Protestant settlers in Cavan Township during the 1800s. The Cavan Blazers were a Protestant vigilante gang that tried to stop Catholic settlements and even went as far as burning down their farms.
The play features Richard Greenblatt (who starred in the Mirvish Production of 2 Pianos, 4 Hands) as Justice of the Peace and Edward Belanger (who starred in the Mirvish production of Mama Mia!) as the leader of the Blazers. Director Robert Winslow will be reprising his original role of Father Phelan from the 1992 production.
Tickets are $40 for the Gala Opening, $30 for Adults, $26 for Youth (ages 5-16) and the August 6th 20th Anniversary Gala Dinner PLUS Opening Night & Reception is $150.
