Summer Pageant seeks people to participate

(photo: Richard Chapman)The River Clyde Pageant is seeking people to get involved in this summer’s Pageant, Wake the River Clyde.

The Pageant features stilt-walking herons, luminous jellyfish, talking trout, nasty trolls and melodramatic mermaids—all created and performed by local volunteers, artists and community members. Wake the River Clyde will have a brand-new story and some additions: a jazz-funeral band, water-borne puppets, and more. The Pageant performances occur July 29 to 30 and August 4 to 6 at 6 pm. Each performance is followed by a free community supper on the lawn of The Mill. Opening and closing night meals will be prepared by Chef Emily Wells and her team. Meals on July 30 and August 4 and 5 will be prepared by Emily alongside guest cooks recruited from the PEI Association for Newcomers to Canada. Upstreet Brewery will serve beer on tap.

The public is encouraged to participate as performers, puppet makers, puppeteers, musicians, builders and production volunteers. “Ker Wells and I are directing the pageant,” said Megan Stewart. “But the real heart and soul is the talent and imagination of our wonderful volunteers. The Pageant gives people a chance to share their skills and learn new ones, while also delivering an important message about the environment.”

An addition to this year’s Pageant is the River Clyde Jazz Funeral band that will process over the New Glasgow bridge in a solemn and celebratory scene. 

The Pageant will also have puppet workshops, led by Nova Scotia puppet builder Ian McFarlane, and a choir led by New York musician Marianne Rendón.
