SCUGOG: Salt Water Moon is a love story, set in the 19th century in rural Newfoundland, which follows Jacob Mercer as he tries to win back his former lover Mary Snow.
This is the third production Landon Doak, son of brewery owner Jack, has brought to Old Flame. He has previously had performances of Romeo and Juliet and Peter Pan, staged at the brewery. However, he told The Standard, this production is different.
“This is the first time we have done a show at the brewery that is not a musical, so it is a change of pace. But I think Port Perry is ready for the change of pace.”
He added, he and his girlfriend, Reanne Spitzer, had not had an opportunity to act together in a while, as he was involved in the Shaw festival, so this play allowed them to do just that. Mr. Doak also said, Reanne pitched this play to him, and he immediately fell in love with the idea after reading through it.
“It is about old flames, so it fits with the theme of the brewery,” he said.
The show runs, from Dec. 14th until Sunday, Dec. 18th, with performances being held every evening at 8 p.m. Tickets are $25 for ages 13 and up, and $15 for ages 12 and under. They can be bought at the brewery, at 135 Perry St. in Port Perry, or by calling 1-289-485-2739. People are encouraged to buy the tickets soon, as they tend to be sold fast.
“I think Reanne and I both give great performances, and I think people will fall in love with the story,” Mr. Doak said.
