Following another magical summer run of its community-created outdoor theatre production, The River Clyde Pageant is now preparing to switch gears for its annual Fall weekend of festivities, Sharing the Field (STF). The event is open to all and will feature local performances, entertainment and a by-donation farm stand—the food for which is produced entirely by the Pageant Community Garden in New Glasgow. STF is set to take place at The Mill in New Glasgow from October 1–2.
The weekend will feature two performances of North Barn Theatre’s new show A Gorgon’s Tale, an original puppet spectacle that tells the story of a misunderstood mythical being stirring change and new growth in a world in ruin. As well, Pageant puppeteer Becca Griffin will be performing an original show titled Catching Fish.
There will also be a series of workshops and panel discussions held throughout the weekend centered around food, community and art. And on top of the farm stand, pop-up food vendor Sneaky Cheats is slated to provide some Southern BBQ style grub. Details are still being confirmed and there may be more entertainment throughout the weekend. Stay tuned at riverclydepageant.com and on socials @riverclydepageant.
STF is a fundraiser for The 2023 River Clyde Pageant, but all revenues from the farm stand will be donated to the food bank in North Rustico.
