For a Saturday outing, our travels took us to a summer vacation home which friends own on Big Rideau Lake and then, from there, we headed down to Gananoque where we enjoyed a performance of the fun musical “SUDS” currently playing at the 1000 Islands Theatre before returning to the lake for a tasty BBQ with friends.

Since the home/cottage is currently on the market (real estate market), it will likely soon become someone else’s spot at which to enjoy this summer’s breezes.

The musical “SUDS” incorporates 47 popular songs from the hit parades of the 50’s and 60’s into one very interesting Laundromat set. I knew about half of the songs from their titles and then remembered a few more when I heard the music. The cast of four did a wonderful job of singing the variety of tunes while moving around the Laundromat with great cat-like agility. The playhouse can be reached via their website at: Thousand Islands Playhouse. Here’s the list of songs that the talented cast combined into their song and dance routines (hum a few quietly) :-):

After the playhouse, it was back to the waterside to watch the sunset and to enjoy the BBQ.
