Festival Players of Prince Edward County Announce 2014 Season: RADIO :30, TEST DRIVE & More
FESTIVAL PLAYERS OF PRINCE EDWARD COUNTY has announced their eighth season of professional live theatre including RADIO :30 by Chris Earle, TEST DRIVE by Dave Carley and a new summer showcase, SUNDAY SERIES @ HUFF ESTATES. Single tickets are on sale now at www.festivalplayers.ca.
FESTIVAL PLAYERS will present RADIO :30 July 22 - August 3, 2014 at Mount Tabor Playhouse in Milford, Ontario. Directed by Shari Hollett, RADIO :30 is a multi-award-winning dark comedy about a radio actor who comes unglued in the recording studio. Playwright Chris Earle (Second City alumnus) will star as discouraged radio personality Ron, and Sam Earle (Degrassi: The Next Generation) will play Mike, the faithful recording engineer.
TEST DRIVE will close the 2014 FESTIVAL PLAYERS season under the Grand Tent at Rosehall Run Vineyards in Wellington, Ontario August 5 - 24, 2014. Artistic Director Sarah Phillips takes the wheel for TEST DRIVE, the life and times of a car man. Earl loves his wife, children and cars - and not always in that order. He also considers his life to be resoundingly ordinary, except that every yen years or so he sets out on a test drive that rocks his world.
FESTIVAL PLAYERS will team up with Huff Estates Inn and Winery for SUNDAY SERIES @ HUFF ESTATES, a new weekly showcase with exciting one-night-only performances on Sundays in July and August. SUNDAY SERIES @ HUFF ESTATES will feature emerging and established talent in a wide array of events including theatre, comedy, storytelling and more.
Single tickets and Flex Passes for RADIO :30 and TEST DRIVE, as well as hotel and dining packages, are now available online at www.festivalplayers.ca. Additional FESTIVAL PLAYERS programming and casting will be announced in Spring of 2014.
