Rare Vintage's 2013 Summer Production is The Charles Dickens Roadshow, a Victorian Musical Comedy devised and directed by Sheila James. The Roadshow celebrates Dickens' North American Reading Tour of 1867-68. The Roadshow appeals to Dickens lovers and haters alike, and even to those who have never heard of Charles Dickens!
While waiting for Dickens to show up for his performance, the dysfunctional local Organising Committee of Dickens fanatics covers for him with songs, readings, and unwitting comedy. The Charles Dickens Roadshow was commissioned in 1991 as the opening production of a new theatre in Lac Brome, Quebec, and has since entertained audiences across Canada.

An Hilarious Evening of Fun !
My family stayed at your lovely hotel on Friday, July 16th. I was pleasantly surprised with the cleanliness of the room, beautiful dining room and friendly staff. The rate was attractive for a family travelling on a budget and having breakfast included was the icing on the cake! The kids had so much fun swimming, skim boarding, golf, visiting Coombs and many more activities. I am telling everyone I know of the lovely accommodations and fantastic staff.
Thank you to Bayside Inn!
You have just earned a loyal customer!
