“Excellent Show”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 September 2013

We saw the last night of "Getting Dark Soon", a Ceilidh, and it was great. Excellent music, full of energy and fun. Violinist Jennifer Roland was a delight, as were the 3 fellows on the stage with her. A wonderful theatre with a very interesting history (started out in a Disney movie at the Louisbourg Fortress site!).

“Fantastic!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 September 2013

This was a fantastic intro into the musical culture of the Maritimes. What a bunch of talented people! Music, dancing, and comedy. And at intermission they serve tea and delicious oatcakes (included with your ticket), loved that! I think my cheeks were sore from smiling so much by the end of the night.

“Pleasantly Surprised”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 September 2013

No dislike. Just sheer entertainment. Hand clapping, foot stomping eastcoast music. Small venue so there is no bad seats. Even give you a tea and oatcakes during intermission. You can donate if you like.

“What an evening out!”

A great Ceilidh and we were lucky enough to have Jennifer Rowland as the principal performed in this beautifully recreated Globe Theater.

“Evening entertainment”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 August 2013

We saw a performance of "Getting dark again", which was just about the right length. Our seats were very comfortable. They offered tea and oatcakes at intermission. Enjoyed the music, which comprised most of the evening, although there was some dance and a little bit of comedy thrown in. It's really nice to see this theatre in such a small place as Louisbourg.
