Queen Milli of Galt is turning out to be a fall fan favourite at Rosebud Theatre.
As the show heads into the final two weeks of its run, audience feedback has been very positive as the play’s charming and somewhat fumbling Prince Edward meets his match in the feisty and shoot-from-the-hip Milli.
Audiences tell us the feel good play has just the right mix of laughs, tears and love to make it a truly memorable experience for the entire family.
Reviews from Rosebud Theatre’s Facebook Page are bright:
•“Queen Milli is an amazing play! We laughed until it hurt. The actors were all absolutely fabulous. At one point I turned to my wife and said ‘I can’t honestly tell if these guys are acting - or if they are actually having this much fun’ Well done Rosebud - if you are thinking of going - don’t think - Just Do IT - you will NOT be disappointed!”
• “Not being a ‘theatre-type’ gal, my husband and I had an opportunity to see “Queen Milli of Galt” on opening night. WELL, I laughed, then I cried, I laughed, then I cried, I laughed, then I cried!!!! It was an amazing production that my husband and I enjoyed very much. I HIGHLY recommend it!”
When the handsome Prince Edward visits Galt, Ontario in the autumn of 1919 everyone wants to see him, everyone that is except Millicent Milroy. She would rather work in her garden than join the masses hoping to catch a glimpse of the king-to-be. An unplanned escape from his tedious public schedule leads Edward down Milli’s garden path. When the two meet, they develop a quick dislike for each other. Things change however when their paths cross again. The more they talk – the stronger their bond grows – leading to a royally funny romance and a surprise ending.
“What may come as a shock to some Albertans is the fact that we as Canadians have our very own Wallace Simpson story in Milli Milroy of Galt, Ontario,” explains Artistic Director Morris Ertman. “In Rosebud this autumn, we provide audiences with another interesting chapter of royal intrigue for royal-story-hungry Canadians.”
