We are a small group of mostly Prince Edward County Residents with a passion for telling important stories through small independent professional theatre productions. In 2017 we presented The Belle of Amherst, a one-woman show about the life of poet Emily Dickinson. The show, featuring Joan McBride as Emily and directed by Fred Robinson, ran for two weeks at the lovely Mount Tabor Playhouse. Audiences loved the play, and frequently we are asked when will be the next one. The answer is September 2019!

By the way, what’s a Mummer? “Mummer” comes from the Old French momer, to wear a mask; pantomime. It means a masked or costumed merrymaker, especially at a festival (American Heritage Dictionary, 3rd Edition). The Marysburgh Mummers are a volunteer, amateur theatre group based out of the village of Milford in Prince Edward County, Ontario. Mount Tabor Community Playhouse, overlooking the village, is the official home of The Mummers. The purpose of the group is to provide opportunities to perform both onstage and behind stage. The participants range in age from three to eighty-three (and beyond). The group is informal in structure. Originally started in the early 1980’s, the Mummers wanted to create a use, and provide maintenance for, a local municipal structure known as Mount Tabor Church, which was in danger of being demolished through neglect. Through peaks and valleys of activity, the Mummers have moved into a stride as a widely recognized organization within The County. The origins of the Marysburgh Mummers are linked to the preservation of Mt. Tabor Playhouse. The Marysburgh Mummers are officially recognized as a recreation group under The County of Prince Edward Parks and Recreation. In 2005, the Marysburgh Mummers celebrated their twentieth […]
