This year we have some exciting news skits, 'plus' a couple of new faces to join the regular team for what has been described as a 'truly entertaining production'. If you have not yet managed to find time to enjoy this unique and original production, then please 'don't miss out again' this year.
- About the Show:
Glimpses. is a series of vignettes, suitable for all ages, depicting interesting events in the history of this area from the landing of the first settlers to the tragic fire which destroyed St. John's Anglican church on October 31st, 2001. The presentation is complemented by some very relevant slides. Glimpses premiered on July 4th, 2008 at the Fisheries Museum in Lunenburg and proceeded to run until September. Response was tremendous, both from local inhabitants and visitors alike. This year, the show has been expanded yet again to include three more lively and moving vignettes. In all, it is a thought provoking experience with many emotional ups and downs. All the songs are original from the pens of Hank Middleton, Vince Morash, Sherry Dean, Dave Brumwell, and Jon Allen. Admission has been by donation with a portion of the proceeds going to local historical societies. Approx. length is 1 hour 30 minutes.

- Comments from last year's shows:
Applause for productionOther Comments:
I want to recommend seeing the theatre production "Glimpses" being performed throughout the summer season at the Fisheries Museum on the third floor. It is a thoroughly enjoyable and educational musical romp through Lunenburg's colourful history. The pace is brisk, the script witty, the original music is wonderful and the energetic cast is superb. I would think that anyone - whether a long-time local, new resident or "just passing through" tourist - would greatly enjoy this production. My 10-year-old Grandtwins enjoyed every minute of it, as did all the other audience members, young and old! Applause to this talented group of musicians and thespians for offering such a fine production. Four Stars!
