True Stories and Legends of the Porcupine Gold Rush
"MINE! True Stories and Legends of the Porcupine Gold Rush"started out as a 60-minute, 12-song, 1-act, solo performance. We debuted the play in July 2022 at the Westdale Theatre as part of the Hamilton Fringe Festival. Then we performed it at the Guelph Civic Museum for the Guelph Fringe Festival, followed by a run at the Capitol Centre in North Bay as part of the On the Edge Fringe festival, ending that tour with TWO performances at the Timmins Museum National Exhibition centre.
Then in May 2023 we remounted the show as a 90-minute, 2-act 16 song production with an onstage pit band, performing 2 shows at the Westdale followed by a performance at the Classic Theatre in Cobalt, ON and another 2-show run at the Timmins Museum.
Finally, in September 2023 we performed the final run of shows playing twice at the Coach House Stage at Glenhyrst Art Gallery of Brant in Brantford and one final show in the main Council Hall at Camp Samac in Oshawa, ON.
