Saugeen Shores and area is rich in artistic talent and, on Sunday, February 26th, many had the opportunity to get up on stage thanks to the Bruce County Playhouse.

The Sunday Showcase is an informal afternoon where anyone is welcomed to show off their talent.  Sunday's performers ranged from vocalists to storytelling, poetry reciting to creating balloon characters ... everyone has a talent and the Showcase is the place to reveal it.
Storyteller Jerrald Beech of Paisley recounted his homespun stories

It's also the perfect way to spend a Sunday afternoon as the audience of some 50 people found out.  "The talent in this area is incredible," said one audience member, "I know some of these people and had no idea they had these talents."

The Playhouse, under the direction of founder Natalie Robitaille, has also offered up several productions of plays at the Southampton Town Hall, including 'The Kitchen Witches' and the famous 'Shirley Valentine', in addition to a Murder Mystery series.

The next production is no April Fool's joke even though it will be held on April 1st.  Instead, it will be murder and mayhem when 'Murder at the Grand Gatsby Speak Easy' comes to the Town Hall.  Solve a murder, enjoy the food and dancing during this full evening of 'roaring 20s' fun.

The show begins at 7:30 p.m. and seating is limited, so to order tickets ($45) call 519-483-6339 or email: brucecountyplayhouse@gmail.com
