North Frontenac Little Theatre will present a local heritage revue entitled “Sunshine Sketches of Our Little Towns” as a final tribute to Central Frontenac’s Canada 150 celebratory year.
The heritage revue is comprised of a series of tailor-made songs and sketches partly resurrected from a 1997 NFLT production, “The North Frontenac Revue”.
The addition of a centre piece one act play, “The Wedding”, written by Deb Ibey, Carol Hillier, and Norma Wood of Plevna, adds a comic touch of local colour to the ensemble.
“The Wedding” came to fruition in the early 1990s through the efforts of Claudia Radfordt who at the time spearheaded the formation of a Plevna writers and illustrators group. Group member Sharel Schonauer of Ardoch came up with the idea – a wedding unwittingly booked for the opening of duck hunting season. Once finished, the group agreed that the piece had to be performed. Locals got together and made the performance a reality, showcasing it in the Clar Mill Hall in Plevna in 1991 to the delight of their North Frontenac fellow citizens.
“The Wedding”, along with other “Sunshine Sketches”, will be presented at the GREC Cafetorium November 23 through 26. Check elsewhere in this paper for ticket information.
