Festival Players of Prince Edward County

Rosehall Run is a proud supporter of our regional professional theatre company, the Festival Players of Prince Edward County. Rosehall Run's Lynn Sullivan is pleased to serve on the Festival Players Board of Directors and enjoys working with the dynamic team of talented professionals which continues to stage unique Canadian-made theatre experiences each summer in The County. Our Vision is that Prince Edward County will continue to be enriched by the power of live theatre; theatre which is deeply rooted in the fabric of the community and which inspires creativity, gathering, exchange of ideas and pride of place.

In 2011 Rosehall Run hosted its first Festival Players production staged in the Grand Tent in our Vineyard. The Ballad of Weedy Peetstraw by Peter Anderson & John Millard was a tremendous success and was followed in 2012 by the hilarious Harvest, written by Ken Cameron. 2013's production of The Notorious Right Robert and his Robber Bride introduced us to Right Robert, his reluctant bride Jenny Lundy and the colourful characters from the one-horse town of Chickabiddy and in 2014 Test Drive took us on a wild ride to an age-gone-by driven by the guy with the zeal to close the deal. August 2015 introduced us to the hilarious couples that navigated their way through Stag and Doe. In 2016 Festival Players debuted award-winning playwright Dave Carley's adaptation of iconic Canadian poet Al Purdy's novel, Splinter in the Heart.

In 2017, under the guidance of Incoming Artistic Director Graham Abbey, the Festival Players will present a Summer repertory season at two new performance venues in the town of Wellington. Rosehall Run is pleased to be the Performance Sponsor for Stones in His Pockets by Marie Jones. Directed by Bruce Dow, 'Stones' is a fast-paced tragicomedy about a sleepy Irish County overrun by a Hollywood film crew, seen through the eyes of two local men employed as extras on the film. Cultures clash, egos reign, and fifteen minutes of fame comes at an enormous price. Ticket information is available at http://festivalplayers.ca/tickets/4pack
