When Jennie finds herself lost in time and thrown into the middle of a mystery, things get personal. With the help of their friendly neighbourhood Mountie, Monty, Jennie must figure out what happened to her great-uncle back in 1885. The nefarious Dutch Charlie and his accomplice Belle are determined to throw our unlikely heroes into deep trouble. Get ready to step up and be a hero yourself! Based on true accounts and historical references, these fictional characters will bring this story to life in… “The Mystery of Dutch Charlie!”

Our talented cast of “The Mystery of Dutch Charlie” is Tirzah Vetter, Rhys Middleton, Sarah Johnston and Raymond Hubscher. Musically accompanied by the Shu-Strings Ukulele Orchestra, composed of members of several local ukulele organizations. Over 25 musicians have agreed to support our production by taking their turn at being the "house band." They’ll keep you high strung with anticipation in tonight’s show! The very talented, Tamlin Vetter choreographed the dance numbers.
