To the Power of Five: 1993 PEI Women in Politics
Wyatt Heritage Properties Inc. and Culture Summerside presents the stage production, To the Power of Five: 1993 PEI Women in Politics, in celebration of the twenty-fifth anniversary of the first and only time in provincial and Canadian history that women held all of the leadership positions of Island government.
To the Power of Five brings alive, through story and song, the political journeys of the five women: Catherine Callbeck, Marion Reid, Pat Mella, Nancy Guptill, and Libby Hubley. The women were individually interviewed by Marlene Campbell of Culture Summerside, who then created the scripts for the theatre presentation. Five actresses, under the direction of Sherri Lee Pike, will take the stage to tell the inspiring stories. The women’s choir, which will be performing for the production, will be conducted by Christine Schultz, with arrangements and accompaniment by Perry Neatby.
The performance will be presented at the Harbourfront Theatre in Summerside on Sunday, November 4th at 2 pm. Tickets are complimentary and can be reserved now by visiting the MacNaught History Centre and Archives, 75 Spring Street, Summerside or by calling 902-432-1332.
A reception will follow the theatre performance at Eptek Art and Culture Centre. It will be an opportunity to visit with the featured women and congratulate them on their life achievements.
This event has been made possible with the financial assistance of the Interministerial Women’s Secretariat, Innovation PEI, City of Summerside, and Go Girl Fashions and Accessories.
