“Sadie Off the Rails” will be presented at the Milton Community Hall on Monday, April 22 at 7 p.m.
The original Canadian one-act musical by Wade Lynch and Diane Barnes features Shawna van Omme, Nick Whelan and Olivia Barnes.
The show was inspired by the true story of Sadie Calhoun, a vaudeville stage and moving pictures star who visited Prince Edward Island in the early 1900s and performed many shows to sold-out houses.
“Sadie Off the Rails” begins with Sadie’s return to the Island only to discover that the place where she was booked, the Charlottetown Opera House, has burned down. Never wanting to disappoint her fans, Sadie hops on the Prince Edward Island Railway for a concert tour stopping at towns across the Island. She encounters fascinating Islanders, beautiful scenery, some tall tales and has plenty of fun along the way.
Tickets are $10 and available at the door or in advance by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 902-566-3154.
