“It’s a lovely show. Bloody good!” says Micheline Prendergast

The year is 1955. Desperate to escape the chicory-pulling, stall-cleaning, hay-baling drudgery of life in RR#2 Caledonia, Peggy Ann Douglas has a plan. Following in the footsteps of starlet Debbie Reynolds, Peggy Ann will simply become a movie star – and she will start her journey to the top by winning the local pageant. Can she sing, twirl and pivot her way into the judges’ hearts, or will shaky nerves and a “Puritanical Work Ethic” sabotage her efforts? Brimming with love, comedy, and a staggering work ethic of its own, Miss Caledonia is a delightful exploration of optimism and reality down on the farm. Supported by delightful fiddle accompaniment, Dora and Canadian Comedy Award winner Melody A. Johnson will have you in the palm of her hand on her quest for the tiara in Miss Caledonia.

Miss Caledonia has toured across the UK and Canada, including runs at Halifax’s Neptune Theatre, Ottawa’s National Arts Centre and Toronto’s Tarragon Theatre.

Melody A. Johnson is the recipient of the Ontario Presents 2014 Artist of the Year award for her work touring MISS CALEDONIA.

Ms. Johnson will also be presenting a workshop, Comedy 101, on Sunday, January 8. See Comedy 101 Workshop for details.

      Hi Emma,

      I do not have any more information for Miss Caledonia than already appears on our website. This is a production that we are bringing in for one performance only because the artist is presenting a workshop for us.
      The next Northumberland Players production in 2017 is “Vanya and Sonia and Misha and Spike”, a comedy that opens at the Best Western Cobourg Inn & Conference Centre on January 20 for three weekends. Details are on our website. Tickets are available by phone, and you can inquire about group rates.
