WINNER OF THE AWARD FOR OUTSTANDING PRODUCTION OF A MUSICAL AND OUTSTANDING DIRECTION OF A MUSICAL AT THE 2015 BETTY MITCHELL AWARDS!

"When he met her she was a beauty queenWho wanted something more.Now she's hanging out with himIn front of the liquor store."

It's hard enough for Johnny and his wife Caroline to keep their farm afloat when the banks, the government, technology, and nature itself all seem in collusion against them. But when an old high school classmate--now a handsome land speculator--returns to town, Johnny and Caroline's marriage is at stake as well.

In the short time since its premiere at the Blyth Festival in 2012, Ken Cameron's Dear Johnny Deere has established itself as a new Canadian musical-theatre classic. With more than a dozen songs by alt-country singer/songwriter Fred Eaglesmith woven through the action, Dear Johnny Deere is a warm-hearted, tough-minded piece of entertainment that will appeal to theatregoers and Fredheads alike.

Praise for Dear Johnny Deere:

"Dear Johnny Deere will resonate with many. The soul of the songs will certainly captivate. The comedy will tickle. And the underlying issues that inform the plot may even make some people take pause."
--Lennie MacPherson, The Guardian (Charlottetown)
"Hauntin', heartwarmin', heartbreakin', and just plain funny. An outstanding new play."
--Joe Belanger, London Free Press
