Six tickets are up for grabs with the following photo…..

Best wishes for 2021

Well, that was quite a year. Hopefully we can soon start putting the worst behind us and start looking toward a brighter future in 2021. From all of us at Highlands Summer Festival, thank you for your support, trust and we wish you a very

Merry Christmas

and a

Happy New Year

2021 season announcement delayed

Typically, at this time of the year, Highlands Summer Festival is proudly announcing next year’s season.

As you know, this has not been a usual year, and so our volunteer appreciation and season announcement at McKeck’s has not taken place. The board of directors regrets missing this opportunity to meet with and thank our many volunteers, who are such a vital part of the Highlands Summer Festival.  We also missed the excitement and anticipation that accompanied Artistic Producer Scot Denton announcement of the details of the upcoming season.

And, even though we can’t make a season announcement, we are still really enthusiastic about the summer of 2021!  We are working within the challenges and uncertainties presented by a pandemic to come up with innovative options that are both entertaining and safe for patrons, cast, and crew.  We are exploring under the stars, under canvas, and under various roofs for a venue to host a season that may be similar to prior seasons, something completely different, or a bit of both.  So many exciting possibilities!

Until then, we invite you to view our “Memories” video in which the people who created Highlands Summer Festival over the last two decades describe their special moments. You can find a link to the video at www.highlandssummerfestival.on.ca

Merry Christmas to all and wishes for a much better New Year.

Stay safe.

From all of us at Highlands Summer Festival

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.

Send your entry by November 25 to:

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.
