Our contest # 13 was unlucky, apparently. We have no correct answers for the photo which showed, from the left, Amy Leis, Tim Nicholson and Tom Regina in the 2015 production of One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest. Interestingly the talented Amy Leis played two characters in the show, the shy Nurse Flinn and party girl Sandra, as seen in the photo. So, on to the next challenge and four pairs of tickets waiting for the lucky winner.

CONTEST # 14

Here are some faces you have seen before. This time they are performing in the 2003 production of The Mumberly Inheritance. Your entry must name the actors on the left and the right. An extra two tickets to anyone who can identify the man hiding behind the false beard in the middle.

Send your entry by July 25 to:

We have a winner for Contest # 12. Glen Carter correctly identified the cast picture and also commented how much the old photos bring back great memories. (Glen appeared in a number of Festival productions including The Sunshine Boys and The Affections of May among others.)  The photo shows a shot of the cast of the musical The Perilous Pirate’s Daughter, presented in the 2005 season. The play was written by David Archibald and Anne Chislett with music and lyric by Archibald. This hardy band of buccaneers included, approximately left to right, playwright David Archibald, Christine Archer, Shane Dibblee, Jocelyn Regina, Mitch Rea, Benton Brown, Tim Nicholson, Tyson Farrell, Dan Falk, Kathryn Boyd, David Mills, Tom Regina and Michael Johnson (not related to pirate Bill Johnson).So, on to the next challenge and two pairs of tickets waiting for the lucky winner.

CONTEST # 13

Here are some faces you have seen before. To win the contest we’ll need the names of all three, the name of the play and the year it was performed.

We have a winner for Contest # 11! Tina Hadley correctly identified Sue Black (jumping on the bed) and Carl Dixon in a scene from the farce Lend Me A Tenor. You can tell it’s a farce because behind the actors there are four doors just begging to be slammed…..and that is only half of the set!  So, on to the next challenge and a pair of tickets waiting for the lucky winner.

CONTEST # 12

The challenge this time is somewhat different. You see here a posed cast publicity shot. None of the actors are in costume, although some of the props they hold could be clues. We’re looking for the name of the play, the year it was performed and which member of the cast wrote the book, lyrics and music for this play. Can you name the playwright?

Send your entry by May 25 to:

We did not have a winner for Contest # 10 in which Karen Frybort and Brian Kipping appeared in the 2008 murder mystery Deathtrap. Oh, and there was a Guillotine on stage as part of the set. So without a winner to, we will carry the ever-growing stack of tickets forward to the next contest and will award six tickets to next season to anyone who can answer the questions to…..

CONTEST # 11

The challenge this time will be to tell us the name of the production, the year it was on stage and the two actors appearing in this scene. To make it easier, any one of the questions, answered correctly, will be considered a winner. However, if we receive more than one correct response, answering the additional questions correctly will serve as our tie breaker.

Send your entry by April 25 to:

Perhaps your humble contest-meister was overly optimistic, but we did not have a winner for Contest # 9 which showed two of our favourite music instructors dancing and singing up a storm in the 2002 concert called Au Naturel. The third member of the cast we were hoping you could identify was yet another music instructor, Tom Regina, who made his appearance in a bee costume to delight the audience with a flute solo, Rimski-Korsakov’s Flight of the Bumblebee. The premise of the concert was that the three musicians were on camping trip with the usual gear, musical instruments and a grand piano. (sigh) Those were the days. So without a winner to give the tickets to, we will carry them forward to the next contest and award four tickets to next season to anyone who can answer the questions to…..

CONTEST # 10

The challenge this time will be to tell us the name of the production, the year it was on stage and the two actors appearing in this scene. Extra points if you can name the medieval execution device that was a gory part of this play’s set.

Romancing the stage

In addition to making great theatre, the Highlands Summer Festival has become a milieu where couples meet. We’re happy to report that many of the meetings have evolved into romances and marriages. We asked four of those couples to  tell us their stories of love. You’ll find them at this link.
