*Victoria Playhouse is casting 2 young actors for On Golden Pond

This is a rare opportunity for two boys to share the role of Billy in the upcoming production of On Golden Pond.

The young actors must look credible as 13 year olds. Billy looks young enough to provide a sweet comedic element as he tries to present himself as a lady’s man/cool dude extraoadinaire.

Evening and some afternoon rehearsals will begin on June 12nd.  Performances will run June 28 to August 5.

This is a great opportunity for local youngsters to work with a cast of professional actors and can be a rewarding and a valuable educational experience. The production will be directed by Ted Price, founding Artistic Director of Theatre North West in BC.  Over the years, Ted has worked with numerous youngsters in such projects.

For more information or to arrange an audition please contact Erskine Smith, Artistic Director at or call the Victoria Playhouse at 658-2370.

*Choral Singing Opportunity

CORO DOLCE, Carl Mathis’ highly regarded choir is getting ready for another summer of classically beautiful (and often fun!) song, and they’re looking for new members.  Rehearsals are on Thursday evenings, starting 26 April … adding Tuesdays in June.

Information/Audition: Carl Mathis  892-1780


Coro Dolce (‘Sweet Chorus’) is back, in fine voice and hoping to attract some new members.  This is Carl Mathis’ highly regarded choir which has been singing in past summers, mostly in churches in Charlottetown (St. Peter’s and Trinity) and Summerside (Trinity), and the magnificent-organ church of St. Simon and St. Jude in Tignish.  These are the folks who so successfully staged “Amahl and the Night Visitors” last Christmastime.

   This is a music group with a difference: most choirs take a holiday in the summer … but Coro Dolce gives singers a chance to keep doing what they love through May, June and July.  They sing mainly the classics, sacred and secular, some opera excerpts, with dashes of fun pieces to spice things up.  This year they’ll celebrate the Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II by singing some madrigals from a set written in 1601 for Queen Elizabeth I.  To celebrate ‘PEI-ness’, they’ll premier “The Island,” by Terry Pratt, a musical version of Milton Acorn’s poem.  There’ll be some Brahms and Bizet, Ivor Novello and Eric Whitacre, plus the ‘Greatest Hits of 1434’.

The season’s first concert will be a special double-barrelled one.  On Wednesday, June 27th, Coro Dolce will share Summerside’s Trinity United Church with the world-travelling Metropolitan Male Choir of South Australia, which is modelled on the traditional Welsh men’s choir.

The emphasis for Coro Dolce is on fine quality.  Chorus members get the joy of musical accomplishment; they enhance their skills under the leadership of a master, the former voice professor at UPEI.  They even have the stimulation of enduring his sense of humour!  In return, regular attendance and dues ($40/year) are required.

Rehearsals are at the Bonshaw community hall on Thursdays, starting April 26th; Tuesday evenings are added in June.  The season finishes toward the end of July.

For information/audition, contact Carl Mathis  892-1780
