The Four Tellers at the Kings Playhouse

The Four Tellers are performing on Monday nights (June 20 to September 5) this summer at the Kings Playhouse in Georgetown. My aunt Joan and I went last night. What a wonderful time! I might have been a bit loud laughing and enjoying the show. I had tears running down my face at times. I love stories as you know from my last post. These guys are great.

Last night they started with a song, then David Weale came out. Eventually, he called out the rest of the tellers (Alan Buchanan, Gary Evans, & Dennis King) asking each in turn the usual PEI question “Who’s yer Father?” Each told a story about their father except for Dennis who talked about his mother in his first story (He did get to his father later in the night). They all told great stories and we sang along to some songs. Had a brief intermission and then did it over again. The show went until 10:30 pm, but the time flew by.

If you get there make sure you buy Dennis King’s book “The Day They Shot Raveen“. He tells a couple of the stories from the book in the show. I would start giggling as soon as I recognized the story and was laughing loudly way before he got to the punch line.

If you are looking for something to do on a Monday night, then you must go.
