During the week of Remembrance Day – Monday, November 8th-Sunday, November 14th – Monday-Saturday @ 7 p.m.; Sunday matinee at 3 p.m. at The Wellington Street Theatre.

Written by Charles Robertson, ‘Til The Boys Come Home features songs and stories of the Second World War. Robertson says the play “starts off in 1939 when the dark clouds of war hang over Canada. The young men and women of a small town in Canada are getting ready for the incredible sacrifices that freedom demands.” The play spans the 6 years of the war. The play opens in a restaurant where the teens are spending a typical Saturday afternoon. It ends up being the last Saturday afternoon of their relative innocence. The audience learns about the characters and their relationships. When an army recruiter shows up everything is changed forever. Their lives will never be the same. Bottle Tree Productions producer Anne Mortensen says, “This play shows how people’s loyalties and friendships are tested, how in the intervening six years of the war, these teens become men and women, and how things are changed forever for them. Their lives and loves will never be the same.” Mortensen went on to say, “This is a very exciting play, very emotional, more like a movie than a play.”

Songs that made Patsy a legend such as ‘Crazy’, ‘Walkin’ After Midnight’, and ‘I Fall To Pieces’ are featured in a story about Patsy and the men in her life. Patsy’s career was cut tragically short at the height of her career by a plane crash. In Trisha Yearwood’s homage to Patsy, she said she was a “Powerful and Passionate Singer.”

Patsy Cline is regarded as one of the most influential women in American music. She was the first female singer in country to cross over into the mainstream. Teamed with Owen Bradley and his lush orchestration of her songs, Patsy became an icon. Abandoned by her father, when she was a teenager, Patsy and her mother worked hard to support the family at several low paying jobs. At the same time, she worked hard to promote herself and to get singing jobs. Too young to know better, she was soon trapped in a bad marriage and a disastrous recording contract, that paid her little more than 2 cents out of every dollar her records made. She also survived a bad traffic accident that nearly killed her. But a strong will and a desire to succeed landed her a new recording contract and an accidental meeting at a dance landed her the love of her life.

Directed by Charles Robertson and Anne Marie Mortensen, this
