Four Tickets Up For Grabs in the

Highlands Summer Festival

Photo Contest

Each month we are posting a photo from one of the shows we presented over the past two decades. The challenge for you is to identify the show and the year it was presented. There could be additional questions as well, depending on the whims of the contest master. All you have to do is submit your answers to

contest@highlandssummerfestival.on.ca

by the 25th of the month. We will select one winner from all the correct entries we received by deadline. The winner will receive two tickets to any of the 2021 season shows because, YES! there will be a season next year. A new photo will be posted at the beginning of each month at which time we’ll announce the winner of the previous contest.

It is as simple as that.

  • No entry fee.
  • No tickets to buy.
  • No Zoom meetings to attend.

….just a nostalgic stroll down our theatrical memory lane and a chance to score some tickets to the 2021 Highlands Summer Festival season.

Perhaps it was the mustache that threw people or the fact the audience was thinking: wasn’t he just on stage as Pirate Bill Johnson, but alas no one was able to correctly identify David Mills as mustachioed Allan MacNab, who also appeared as Pirate Bill seen in the picture with Kate Johnson, played by Kathryn Boyd. It was the 2005 musical production of The Perilous Pirate’s Daughter, written by David Archibald. No winner means the next contest prize has four tickets to give away. So, on to the next photo…..

We have a winner for Contest # 5! Lucy Haniak wins four tickets (there were two left over from Contest # 4) to any production in the 2021 season. Lucy correctly identified the photo as being from the show Sylvia from 2010. In the picture, from the left, is Tom Regina, who played three roles in the show, including two women, Jocelyn Regina who played the title character, a dog, Lesley English and Brian Kipping. The man of the house, Brian, brings a stray dog home much to the chagrin of his wife, Lesley. Jocelyn was masterful in her portrayal of a dog, verbalizing its thoughts as the couple and visiting friends debated the animal’s future. Now on to the next contest…..

CONTEST # 6

We’re looking for the name of the show, the year it was presented and the names of the two actors, (either their characters ( one played two roles) or their real names), you see here. Bonus points to anyone who can identify the playwright.

Well, there were nun winners in contest # 4. The photo featured the five nuns from the 2013 production of Nunsense. Some might have been confused, since we presented a follow-up to that show in 2015 called Nunsensations, featuring the nuns in Las Vegas. Further adding to the confusion, the casts were almost identical, with one small difference. In the cast of both shows were Maureen James. Beth Kipping, Pat Piché, and Victoria Bingham. The actor playing the novice was different in each show…..In last month’s photo we see Jaqueline Janas in that role. In Nunsensations it was played by Hannah Klose. Pat Piché, playing Sister Amnesia, is the one who had the puppet. So, without a winner, we now have four tickets for the 2021 season up for grabs for contest # 5.

CONTEST # 5

We’re looking for the name of the show, the year it was presented and the names of the four actors, (either their characters or their real names), you see here. Bonus points to anyone who can summarize the plot in ten words or less.

Send your entry by October 25 to:

Missing live theatre?

Have you been experiencing live theatre withdrawal? Was your summer missing something? Do you spontaneously leap to your feet and applaud for no apparent reason? There are a lot of us at Highlands Summer Festival with similar symptoms, but we soldier on in anticipation that one day the stage will be filled with earnest actors, melodious chorister and fleet -a-foot dancers. In the meantime we offer the following reminder of what we’re all missing and anticipating in the near future.  The following video features the song Show People from the musical Curtains, by Kander and Ebb, starring David Hyde Pierce and Debra Monk, plus many of the actors, singers, dancers and cast and crew of their show, now  “curtained”.

We hope you enjoy the the seven minute video and it helps to ease some of your live theatre withdrawal symptoms.
