About your Event: A new play about Port Perry by Graeme Powell
Presented by Borelians Community Theatre

Produced by Kyle Brough
February 14, 15, 16, 21, 22, 23 (8pm)
February 16, 23 (2pm matinees)
About the Play:
It’s been a long time since Kathryn De Lancie has set foot in Port Perry. Her decades spent in Hollywood have been a whirlwind of leading roles and rave reviews; but even with all the fame and adoration, try as she may, Kathryn has never been able to fully forget her rural roots.
Now here she is, on location, in Port Perry, and the town is vibrating with excitement. Everywhere you go, the only thing being talked about is how Hollywood has come to town with lights and cameras and the hometown girl who followed her dreams. Will local folk catch a glimpse of the town’s prodigal daughter, or will Kathryn manage to hide from her past, the same way she has for years?
This world premier comedy from Port Perry’s own playwright, Graeme Powell, is a fresh look at what makes small towns such fantastic places to live. Mixing huge laughs with local history, familiar names, and instantly recognizable characters, Palmer Park reminds us that there is as feeling in our hearts which we all have in common… home.
GALA NIGHT: Purchase your ticket for Friday February 15th and join us for a very special evening. Arrive at 7pm to enjoy delicious desserts, finger foods and free drinks in the patron’s lounge along with live music before the show.
