The Naming of Port Rexton

By Grant Tilly
Directed by Keith Pike
Developed with Rising Tide Theatre
Premiere production

It’s 1910 and the town of Ship Cove, NL needs a new name. When it’s decided that the name will be derived based on the first child born to either the Randell or Rex families, a baby race ensues as each family vies to have the town named either “Port Randell” or “Port Rexton”. Based (loosely!) on true events, this new musical comedy features an all original score with soaring melodies. It’s a family play about getting in the “family way”! A full scale musical with a large cast, beautiful voices and clever mischief.
