PTBOCanada Preview & Pics: The Curious Savage At Peterborough Theatre Guild

The Curious Savage is the latest production to take the stage at the Peterborough Theatre Guild. Written by John Patrick and directed by Glen Walker, this is a must watch performance. You're whisked away to the year 1950, where we see Mrs. Savage (played by Linda Driscoll) join the other residents of the sanatorium known as "The Cloisters". After the passing of Mrs. Savage's husband, she inherits $10 million—but her stepchildren disagree with how she wishes to spend it so they have her committed into the home. From there, many stories unfold at the home throughout this touching production that is filled with mystery, humour, and cleverness. You will find yourself drawn to the stories of each character, wishing for them to find their right path. These characters are exceptionally portrayed by Linda Driscoll as Mrs. Ethel Savage, Rebekah Fallaise as Fairy May, Jessica Mauro as Florence, Josh Butcher as Hannibal, Frankie Black as Jeffrey, and Carole Jones as Mrs. Paddy. Here are some preview pictures below...

The Curious Savage runs until October 11th. Tickets can be purchased at the box office or by calling 705.745.4211.

PTBOCanada Review: Peterborough Theatre Guild Presents "Oliver! The Musical" At Showplace

Opening night for Oliver! The Musical presented by the Peterborough Theatre Guild took place Friday (May 2nd) in front of a full house at Showplace Peterborough. Directed by Gillian Wilson, with Brian MacDonald as music director, choreography by Melissa Beeby and Peter Sudbury as orchestra conductor, Oliver stars Jackson Freeman as Oliver.

As well, there are a host of other familiar names in Oliver from local theatre productions who you've most likely seen in other plays, including Brian MacDonald, Kate Suhr, Lindsay Unterlander, Chuck Vollmar and Isaac Martin—in addition to so many others that make for a superb cast.

Set in the slums of London in 1837, we follow the story of orphan Oliver Twist. If you're like me and remember the story well—I was part of the chorus in our high school production—you'll find yourself singing along to some of the well-known songs like "I'd Do Anything" and "Consider Yourself".

This fantastic musical continues until May 10th. Tickets are $25/adults, $22/senior, $15/students and can be purchased at the Showplace Box Office.
