The population of Victoria-by-the-Sea, PEI, increased from 104 to 107 in 2011 when Emily Smith, her husband and young son moved back to the community where she had grown up and where her parents, Pat Stunden Smith and Erskine Smith, founded the Victoria Playhouse.

Lacey, Monica

In the dialogue
Profile by Jane Ledwell

For the Art in the Open festival one year, Monica Lacey created an installation conjuring an abandoned house in the woods. “Drunk teenagers stumbled into it,” she recalls. “I don’t even know if they knew it was part of the festival—but they started to have a house party…The suspension of disbelief they had was so magic.” Eventually, she had to kick them out

Owning it
Profile: by Jane Ledwell

It wasn’t Ashley Condon’s plan to launch a full-length album of songs (Can You Hear Me, with many collaborators) and a brewery (Montague’s Copper Bottom Brewing, with her husband Ken Spears) within weeks of each other in one busy fall.

Gallant, Nikkie

School Break

Little did Glen Strickey know as an eager-beaver twelve-year-old that some of his uncle’s Sunday afternoon jam-session guests, who welcomed him to play saxophone with them, were world-famous musicians like Oscar Peterson or Oliver Jones.

It may be Saturday nights in Charlottetown, rather than Sundays in Cape Breton, but Glen still plays his saxophone with

Singsong
Profile by Jane Ledwell

Students at Morell High School where choral leader Kelsea McLean is music teacher say she sings when she teaches. She admits she’s been accused of being “singsongy.” “I don’t think I’m a ray of sunshine,” she says, “or even all that optimistic—it’s just the delivery!” She laughs, melodically.

“I know all the kids in the school,” she says, “even if they aren’t my own

Counting blessings
by Jane Ledwell

By the time October arrives, Adam Perry’s seventeen-and-a-half minute short film, A Blessing from the Sea, a “violent thriller” filmed on PEI’s west coast (near Tignish) with mainly Island talent, will have debuted as the closer of the short-film gala at FIN: The Atlantic International Film Festival.

Full Circles
Profile by Jane Ledwell

“Where did the summer go to?” sings the cast of Anne of Green Gables on Confederation Centre mainstage. But Aaron Hastelow, the first Islander to win the role of Gilbert Blythe and performing the role for a second season, there’s no time to be wistful.
