Last Chance to See Jerry Finnegan’s Sister

"Fantastic show! You both gave great performances. Loved the play."

"Had a great time at Centre Stage last night. If you haven't seen their latest play, do so. You won't be sorry!"

Although he is in his early 20s now, Brian Dowd can’t shake his feelings of self-doubt and social awkwardness whenever he’s anywhere near Jerry Finnegan’s sister, Beth. He’s felt this way since the age of seven when her family moved in next door. Beth has no idea of his unrequited love and it’s do or die for Brian when he learns that she is about to be married. Determined to declare himself at last, he’s resolved to meet his fears head-on. After all, what’s he got to lose – except the love of his life!

Written by Jack Neary, this highly acclaimed comedy will appeal to all audiences. It is directed by Mindy Vinqvist Tymchuk.

Cast Members (in order of appearance): Marc Hetu, Emily Lutz (August 29), Danielle Lutz (August 30).

Jerry Finnegan’s Sister opens in the newly renovated Main Stage Theatre on August 29, 30. Showtime 8 p.m.

Tickets $15/$12 (Call 678-8040 for reservations). CentreStage Theatre is located at 61 River Street, Kentville.

Summer Drama Camps 2014

The last duotang has been put away and quiet has descended upon the Upper Performance Centre during the day! The last 7 weeks have been fantastic - 170 campers have crossed the stage, singing, dancing and acting.

Along the way they have learned the value of working together and having a production ready for an audience every Friday. Oh, and having a great time doing it.

Thanks go to our artistic directors Mark Crouse, Cynthia Myers and Colleen Hagen, whose love of the art of performance is passed on to each camper. To our valued volunteers, Kat Lewis, Chesley Robichaud, Sabrina Doucette, Emily Dutton, Sophie Elliott, Mahaila Welton and Kiara Welton, thanks for the many hours you spent making the camps so successful. And thanks go the camp assistants, Micci Comeau, Savannah Maxner and Jessica Bundy, you are our left arms, right arms and feet at these camps! Special thanks to our donors, nine campers were able to participate because of your generosity. See you next summer!
