September 7 – 9 → The Four Tellers

After three years of playing to packed houses in theatres across the Island The Four Tellers return to Victoria  with their latest storytelling show called
The Last Laugh.

As in previous years the show is comprised, for the most part, of four friends and master-storytellers, Denny King, Gary Evans, Alan Buchanan and David Weale, sitting around a table swapping stories of the Island that invariably have the audience roaring with laughter, or sometimes, brushing aside a tear.

Also, woven into the storytelling are the sparkling musical  arrangements of Rachael Beck and Bennett Buell.

The unique charm of the Tellers is the spontaneous, unscripted quality of the show which allows the audience to feel they are right there, in the kitchen, as the stories roll out, one drawing the next, like tissues out of a box.

As one reviewer, Gordon Cobb, wrote: “Between the hoots and the hollers and the almost tears, there is the feeling in the theatre of being fully human. And fully alive. Catch it while you can.”

Because, after all, it is called, The Last Laugh!

Prince Edward Island singer-songwriter Rachel Beck is already making her mark on the national scene with a hit debut release. Beck’s self-titled album came out on March 2, 2018. On March 8, its first single, Reckless Heart, hit #1 on the CBC Music Top 20 after having the most online votes for 6 weeks straight.
 
Beck’s hook-driven, emotive piano pop melodies captivate. And whether you see her live, hear her on the radio, or press play on one of her songs, the experience is just as impactful: you are not only brought under her vocal spell, but are an instant fan.
