Don't miss LIVING THE ISLAND LIFE — an original new musical comedy that follows a family of six (including a large dog named Kitty) from Buffalo on vacation in - they think - Rockport, Maine. They land, instead, on Cape Ann and learn about life on our side of the bridge through eleven locals’ colorful interpretations of “island” life and its people.
