Queen Marie at 4th Line Theatre

Above are Rob Winslow (as a young Charlie Chaplin) and Shelley Simester (starring as Marie Dressler) in a scene in which they recreate the filming of “Tillie’s Punctured Romance.”

If you’re in the Peterborough area in the next few weeks, get yourself some tickets and check it out.

The show is a fun musical comedy about the life of Marie Dressler who was born near here in Cobourg and became a world beloved comedienne and star of stage and silent film.

Definitely worth the drive to Millbrook.
