CHARLOTTETOWN (December 21, 2015) – PEI Brewing Company is proud to announce that Lennie Gallant will be bringing his acclaimed musical-theatre show SEARCHING FOR ABEGWEIT back to the PEI Brewing Company Culinary Event Space for the 2016 season.“Last year was an incredibly successful season and we are thrilled to be working again with Lennie on bringing SEARCHING FOR ABEGWEIT to the next level in the PEI Brewing Company space,” said Jeff Squires, President of the PEI Brewing Company. “Lennie’s songs and stories are a perfect fit for the PEI Brewing Company – with over 80 sold out shows, it’s truly a must-see Island affair.”
Lennie Gallant adds, “We had received so many requests to run the show again this summer, from those who missed it and those who want to return with friends and family, that we decided to go with the flow! SEARCHING FOR ABEGWEIT will sail again this summer! We had an amazing run last year – the energy never lagged and the production seemed to evolve and become stronger with each performance as we discovered new ways to showcase the songs and stories. Myself and the band are really looking forward to another season at the PEI Brewing Company working with the fabulous staff and presenting our show to Islanders and visitors alike!”
Described as the “must see show of the summer” in 2014 by G! Magazine, SEARCHING FOR ABEGWEIT showcases the Island songs and stories of Lennie Gallant, Canadian Folk Artist of the Year and well-known singer/songwriter from Prince Edward Island. Also available is the recently-released double album of songs from the 2015 performance of SEARCHING FOR ABEGWEIT which is available at the PEI Brewing Company and at lenniegallant.com.
Advance tickets for the 2016 season of SEARCHING FOR ABEGWEIT will be available at peibrewingcompany.com and at the PEI Brewing Company taproom (96 Kensington Road) beginning January 6th, 2016.
