Dinner Rooney Workshop, Tom Patterson Theatre
October 6 – October 9
Various Times
Let’s be honest with each other: How are you doing? Are you behind on your emails? Are you worried? Afraid? Lost?

You are not alone. And all are invited to Pearle Harbour's Chautauqua, where connection is the cure for what ails ya. Gather under the milky folds of our beautiful tent. Be sheltered from the un-harmony of these tough times. Catch your breath. Speak your truth. Feeeeel the People Power, you betcha!

Chautauqua is a multi-award-winning immersive extravaganza: part cabaret, part tragicomedy, part tent revival. There’s music, sing-alongs, puppet shows, and even an exorcism! The world may be falling apart, but Pearle will show you that there’s more that unites us than divides us.

“NNNN ... Who knew that a show performed by a drag queen in a recreation of an old-time tent revival could act as a balm for souls anxiously living in an age of economic, ecological and political uncertainty?
“And while many shows employ audience interaction and participation, this is one of the few I've seen where the practice encourages a sense of community healing and togetherness.” (NOW)
