Christmas in the Kitchen – Monday, Dec 13 at 7:30 at Milton Community Hall. Christmas in the Kitchen is a uniquely PEI celebration of the season. It brings together the ingredients that make for a rip-roaring PEI kitchen party – storytelling, toe-tapping tunes, and loads of good cheer – and wraps them all around the holiday theme,” said Campbell Webster, the show’s producer. The yuletide production, which was created by Nicholas Whelan and Suzy Wilde, will showcase some of PEI and Canada’s most accomplished musicians performing exciting new arrangements of classic Christmas songs. “Some of the same musicians that performed in Together At Last will be joining the cast of our new holiday show and we’re excited to bring such a high-caliber ensemble of talent together”, says Whelan.
The cast will be led by Wilde, Whelan, and well-known Island storyteller, Alan Buchanan. They will be joined by talented Island musicians Paul Hopkins, Jenna Marie Holmes, Michael Peters, Tuli Porcher, and Pat King. With a focus on celebrating Canadian talent, Christmas in the Kitchen will feature music from The Rankin Family, David Myles, Anne Murray, Great Big Sea, and other popular artists.
“There will be fiddles, there will be folklore, and there will be lots of fun,” said Whelan. “We’re all looking forward to bringing a new take to some of the season’s most popular songs and interspersing them with plenty of hilarity from the master storyteller himself, Allan Buchanan.” Tickets are $25 and are available at the Milton Community Hall ([email protected] or 902-566-3154). Vax Pass and masks are necessary.
