I thought the Pageant would be walking around town and hearing the history of the buildings, but it was way more than that! The Pageant was more like the story of the town acted out in different locations and it was very well done. There were some sad stories, but overall the tone was humorous and we enjoyed it very much. There were lots of children there and lots of old people too. It wasn't too much walking and there was usually some grass to sit on.

We also went to the dinner theater and we enjoyed that too. Excellent dinner and some Newfoundland Quidi Vidi beer for purchase. After dinner was a program of singing and skits and again the overall tone was upbeat and humorous.

This was an excellent way to spend our last day in Newfoundland, plus we could understand the accent and colloquialisms a little better by then!

My wife and I attended a performance of February, based upon the book of the same name. The small cast was excellent, the sets working well to bring us into the story. There is tremendous talent in this theatre and is well worth spending an evening at if you are in the Trinity area.

We saw two shows..Pillow Trade and the Harry Hibs show. Both were excellent! Beautiful theatre in a wonderful area. We booked as soon as they opened for the season. Would definitely return .

Light hearted fun show...worth seeing. We have seen other productions by the Rising Tide Theatre and we have enjoyed them all. Shows are often sold out so you should book in advance

This was an excellent production. I was not familiar with the story but after the show it made me want to find out more.
