You’ll be mesmerized and entertained by the Saint Andrews Summer Theatre. The professional company have taken up residence in the 120-seat W.C O’Neill Theatre, performing six days a week with two high-quality, entertaining productions.
Delightful Comedy Souvenir is the perfect memory of St. Andrews in the summer
Acclaimed soprano Sally Dribble excels in her role as Florence Foster Jenkins, star of the production Souvenir. As director Richard Beaune describes casting Dribble in the role, ““the actress playing the role has to be a great vocalist to sing badly, well.” The play tells the story of Jenkins and her quest to become a diva, despite her troubling handicap – she can’t carry a tune! The production also features Toronto based actor and pianist Ostap Soroka. You don’t want to miss the live performance of this real-life story, currently being made into a feature film starring Meryl Streep.
This lighthearted and touching production plays six evenings a week until August 5th.
Your Children will Love Being Shipwrecked! by Live Theatre in Saint Andrews
Shipwrecked! The Amazing Adventures of Louis De Rougemont as Told by Himself is a high octane, family friendly adventure performed by only four actors in multiple roles. Full of physical comedy and theatrical invention, Shipwrecked! stars stage veteran Kevin Burnett and Jody Racicot (Night at the Museum, CBC’s The Newsroom.)
St. Andrews Summer Theatre will take up residence in the 120 seat theatre located in the municipally owned WC O’Neill Arena Complex. Eight performances per week, four of each play, will be offered during the ten week run. Souvenir plays Tuesday through Friday at 7:30pm while Shipwrecked! plays Saturday at 2 and 7:30pm and Sunday at 2 and 6:30pm. The St. Andrews Film Society will continue to run movies in the theatre every second Monday as they have for many years.
