The Good Time Radio Variety Show

Farmgate Theatre returns to Victoria Playhouse in August

Farmgate Theatre is returning to the Victoria Playhouse this summer with an all new version of their 2021 hit, The Good Time Radio Variety Show, playing from August 2–27. 

With a modern day take on a classic radio variety show, and a new script and music for 2023, the show is an original stage play about a small town PEI radio station doing a live broadcast of their popular weekly variety show. 

Set in the present day, the story follows a colourful cast of radio personalities as they navigate a series of surprising obstacles during the most important broadcast of their lives. The show must go on, but can it? Filled with comedy, mystery and live music, it’s always a good time for a good time. 

The show is written by Charlottetown Festival regulars Julain Molnar and Cameron MacDuffee, and features a local cast including MacDuffee, Sarah Segal-Lazar, Judy Marshak and Tim Hamming. The production is being directed by well-known Canadian actor Laurie Murdoch, with musical direction by 2022 Music PEI musician of the year Ben Aitken. 

In addition to The Good Time Radio Variety Show, Farmgate Theatre will be presenting two outdoor arts events at Finally Farm this summer, one in August and September. Visit farmgatetheatre.ca for updates.
