Award Winning QNEK Productions, International Theatre Company in Residence at the Haskell Opera House celebrating their 25th Anniversary and FINAL Season presents Nunsense, QNEK’s Signature Show with your favorite crazy nuns: Sister Hubert (Emily May), Sister Leo (Ruth-Ann Fletcher), Sister Robert Ann (Anita Morin); and The Reverend Mother (Lynn Leimer); Sister Mary Grace Note (Janice Luce) and Brother Rimshot (Sean McCallister). Nunsense (1985) is a musical comedy with a book, music, and lyrics by Dan Goggin. Originating as a line of greeting cards, Goggin expanded the concept into a cabaret that ran for 38 weeks, and eventually into a full-length musical. The original Off-Broadway production opened December 12, 1985, running for 3,672 performances and becoming the second-longest-running Off-Broadway show in history. The show has since been adapted for television, starring Rue McClanahan, and has spawned six sequels and three spin-offs.

Picture it: A graceful tune to start off a set, with beautiful zippering lines, played while caressing the fiddle to his ear, eyes closed, off in a serene realm in a dance with time, as he lures us there with him. Then a cutting strathspey to kick it into a higher gear as he whoops out loud and smiles at the crowd a total of six reels in a row, all executed with flawless precision, pounding in rhythm, intoxicating in a firing energy, which brings about numbers fits of spontaneous applause from the crow who spring to their feet in ovation immediately at the set’s end. Wood simply dropped every single jaw in the house – certainly making us proclaim he is back and he is better than ever…. - Todd Maclean – Charlottetown Guardian.

Richard Wood, Prince Edward Island fiddler, artist, composer and entertainer has taken on the world once again. Richard has come full circle, not just in his musical career, but from the sheltered innocence as a child prodigy to learning life’s lessons the hard way.

Joining Richard Wood on stage again this year is Gordon Belsher. With a gentle charm that has become his trademark, Belsher versatility, engaging personality and exceptional musicality has earned him the prestigious Music PEI 2014 Lifetime Achievement Award. Whether playing before Festival crowds or intimate folk settings, Belsher’s talent is extraordinary. Don’t miss these unique and inspiring artists.

"He consistently brings 110 percent to the stage and is always thinking foremost of giving the audience the quality show it deserves." - Eddy Quinn, the Eastern Graphic
