“…I would truly pay money to see Johnson read the phone book…”
“…a winning show you’d take your grandmother or your granddaughter to in a wink…”
Globe and Mail
When Miss Caledonia played at Tarragon Theatre this fall, this unforgettable show was lavished with praise from critics and audience alike. Miss Caledonia is a charming, compelling and comic piece about growing up in rural Canada and looking for more. It’s the story of Peggy Ann Douglas, a young girl determined to escape the hay-baling, chicory-pulling existence of 1950’s rural Canada, looking to make it to the big time and the silver screen. Following in the footsteps of Debbie Reynolds, Peggy Ann decides that the straightest road to Hollywood is through the local beauty pageants and she makes a run for it!
Award-winning actress Melody A. Johnson plays it beautifully, along with the delightful accompaniment of Alison Porter on fiddle. She sweeps us up in her story from the get-go and deftly places us back on the ground when all is said and done. It’s funny and gentle. And whip smart. Brimming with love and comedy, Miss Caledonia is a delightful exploration of optimism and reality down on the farm.
