Glimpses 2012



On Friday June 15th, ‘Glimpses’ will commence its fifth season with an opening show in the Mahone Bay Centre in support of the Settlers Museum.

The show will then continue its long standing run in the Fisheries Museum of the Atlantic in Lunenburg, starting on Tuesday July 10th, with performances every Tuesday and Thursday evenings through to September 13th.

The performances start at 7.30 pm and are approximately 80 minutes long. Admission by donation.


We are very proud to say that ‘Glimpses’ is now one of the longest running shows on the South Shore of Nova Scotia.


Last year, this popular production, which takes an exciting and entertaining look at our history through scene and song, was played out to full houses for most of the summer period. In recognition of the fact that many people were unfortunately turned away from full house performances, the Fisheries Museum has extended the Theatre to accommodate 100 extremely comfortable seats. This air-condition theatre makes a wonderful setting for the show.


Obviously, a lot of our history IS exciting, entertaining and funny without any help from us. However, history also has many sad and dour events. Every historic event we perform and each song we use to enhance the story has been researched and written by our cast ‘past and present’. We put entertainment first without losing any of the factual information, even though we do embellish some skits with a bit of imagination.


We feel that ‘Glimpses’ has now become an integral part of many visitors experience of Lunenburg County. This unique show has been watched and supported by many local folk, which in itself is a huge endorsement for its popularity.

If you have yet to experience the show, please try to catch a performance this year and see for yourself what we have to offer. We don’t think you’ll be disappointed.

All performances this season are in memory of Sarah Allen.
