Three to get Married by Kay Hill is a historic comedy set near Aylesford, Nova Scotia, in the 1830s. It tells how a resourceful clergyman sets out to marry off his three daughters. With the running of the first stagecoach in Nova Scotia, the Government is offering a subsidy of twenty-five pounds to any householder on the route who will open his home as an inn for the passengers. Horatio accepts the subsidy and lies in wait for eligible male passengers. Will it happen? Not if Aunt Lizzie has anything to say about it!
Three to Get Married is directed by Beth Irvine and will appeal from teens to more historic people!
Three to Get Marriedis playing in the Upper Performance Centre at CentreStage There are no wheelchair accessible washrooms on that level. The chairlift will be operational.

Darrell Doucette (Horatio) is happy to work with Beth again. He has been involved with Centre Stage for four years working in various positions: acting, stage manager, light/sound. Previous productions include Same Time Next Year and Gary Grinkle’s Battles with Wrinkles. He works part-time at the Victoria’s Historic Inn and during the summer at the Visitor’s Information Centre in Wolfville.
Chantal Murphy (Angelina) appeared as Lexie in CSTS’s The Dixie Swim Club. She is involved in the Greenwood Players, appearing in such productions as Murdered to Death, Robinson Crusoe Pantomime, The Foreigner and There Goes the Bride.and directing A Little Murder Never Hurt Anybody and Fruitcakes.

Hannah Gerrits just finished her third year at Acadia University studying English. She enjoys acting as one of her favourite past times and has been in numerous plays at CentreStage including Evelyn Strange and Little Women. Working with the cast and crew of Three To Get Married has been a blast!
Emily Lutz, orignially from an apple farm in Rockland, is now working on her Master’s at Acadia. This is her debut at CentreStage. Her years with UNB Dance and early stage experience have enriched her life and honed her talents. She couldn’t have managed this play with her crazy schedule without the love and support of her boyfriend, Cassian, roommates, family and incredible cast mates. Thank you for coming and enjoy the show!
Nancy O’Halloran (Aunt Lizzie), mother of two sons and married to her first love, is the proud owner of BraveHeart First aid. She debuts as a character who is totally the opposite of her real life! This play is a welcome and rewarding escape from her role as proud owner of Braveheart First Aid where she always reminds people to be brave, to be safe and to care for others. “Enjoy the show!”
Collyn Boon is very happy to playing the role of Tom Oates, the stage coach driver. This is the first play he’s been in since Junior High. He’s a unique person, so he’s told, who has the condition known as Asperger’s Syndrome, a high-functioning form of Autism. "I’ve always loved theatre and the arts, spending some of my spare time writing short stories, poetry and working on a novel."
Ryan Trimper, back for his 5th play and 3rd large role, loves CentreStage and he’s very excited about doing a show with his friend Mike who has been away from the stage for 13 years. Performing with old cast members and new cast members is a blast. Enjoy!
Kevin Irvine has not been seen on stage at CentreStage since Arsenic and Old Lace. He’s been waiting for the right part and Chester Greengate is it! He is pleased to be working with his wife Beth and the other cast members. Sit back and enjoy the show!
Mike Bishop lives in Kentville with his girlfriend, Lori, and their two cats. Last seen in On Golden Pond (2002) with his grandmother, Diana Bishop, he’s a full-time business student at Acadia, and taking German, which helps connect his role as Otto Leederbaum. Mike also works at Best Toyota. He is very excited to be back at CentreStage and hopes to become a regular performer.
Ryan MacNab (Lieutenant Honeywell) can hardly wait to show you he can play something besides a policeman! Playing a handsome, sophisticated ladies’ man is an interesting development. He’s proud to wear the uniform of a British officer and wants the audience to know that, in this play, he will not be arresting anyone!
Margo Andrews, Stage Manager, is very pleased to work with Beth again, having worked backstage in KittyCat: A Dottie Singalong. She is a semi-retired school teacher (she has taught for 40 years!) and has two sons and a daughter-in-law. Margo lives with two black Maine Coon Cats.
Lori Wilson is excited to be working backstage in her first CentreStage production. She enjoys watching the characters develop and can hardly wait to see the show on stage.
Cyndy Kenley always enjoys being backstage, doing whatever needs to be done. It is such fun to be part of the crew and help bring a play to life, and there’s never a dull moment. She continues to be amazed at how many talented people we have in the Valley, and this cast is no exception. She is thrilled to be working with Beth again and with her friend and cousin Margo. She hopes everyone enjoys the show.
