About the event

Musician and funny guy Albert Arsenault, of Barachois and Chuck & Albert fame, and funny gal and improv enthusiast and teacher Laurie Murphy, most known for her sketch comedy work on PEI in Annekenstein and Drill Queens Comedy, are joining musical and comical forces. Their brand-new show is NEVER BEFORE SCENE—literally!—a combination of playful and not-so-gentle improv and serious fiddle running weekly on Thursday evenings, July 18 – August 29, 2024, 8pm – 10pm (including 15 min. intermission), at the Haviland Club, 2 Haviland Street, Charlottetown.

Prince Edward Island celebrities who have good-naturedly agreed to be interviewed for an improv segment called, “Get to Know a PEI Celebrity,” include Anne & Gilbert’s “Anne,” theatre artist Rebekah Brown (Aug. 29), recording artist Catherine MacLellan (Aug. 15), biologist Kate MacQuarrie (Aug. 1), historian Ed MacDonald (Aug. 22), quill artist Melissa Peter-Paul (Jul. 25) amateur meteorologist Sheldon White (Jul. 18) and recording artist Nathan Wiley (Aug 8).

Advance tickets are $25 per person via an e-transfer to, or online at“ Buy early and avoid the Weston-like markup to $35 per person at the door, if tickets are available,” Murphy recommends. Due to the limited number of seats available, tickets are non-refundable and non-transferable.

Heated PEI Handpies will be available for purchase pre-show, and bar service is available in the Haviland Club’s Taproom for patrons 19+ years of age - look for weekly signature cocktails.
