Kings Playhouse in Georgetown presents Greetings as part of its Remembrance week programming. Featuring the PEI Regimental Band, Greetings follows the story of a young musician interred in a POW camp during World War II. As the show explores the influence of music on the war and its power to connect us and uphold us, it highlights the journey of George L Bradbury, a bandboy—the true story of his struggles in the war, the challenges faced by him and his young family, and moving forward in peace time.

This original piece, written by Marlene Handrahan, Kings Playhouse Artist in Residence, is the second in the Kings Playhouse series of Legacy Projects that focus on preserving the personal stories of veterans through story, song and theatre.

Greetings: An Army Musician’s Message Home will be presented at Kings Playhouse on November 6 at 7:30 pm and November 7 at 2 pm. The live performance takes place as a part of the Week of Remembrance in Georgetown.

The Playhouse is also bringing back the Walk of Heroes, an interactive walk welcoming visitors to tour through the A.A. Macdonald Memorial Gardens and explore the photos and stories of those who served and those who continue to serve.

The annual Remembrance Day Service will take place at the Georgetown Cenotaph, beginning at 10:45 am on November 11.

Kings Playhouse is located at 65 Grafton Street in Georgetown.
