The Songs of Johnny & June celebrates the lives and songs of country music’s most iconic couple, Johnny Cash & June Carter, from their first meeting to their final days. Created by Jacob Hemphill with music direction by Melissa MacKenzie, this biographical concert features the powerhouse PEI duo accompanied by a rockstar band. Our very own “Tennessee Three” features Island superstars Logan Richard (lead guitar), Josh Langille (drums), and Sam Langille (bass). These three are known for their sizzling solos, kick-ass grooves, and phenomenal showmanship.

Show-goers can expect the renowned country songs they know and love, intertwined with stories they may have never heard. The Songs of Johnny & June will take the audience on a journey of the complicated relationship between these two legends of country music.

ABOUT KITBAG

Kitbag Theatre began in November of 2020 with the desire to create, present, and produce theatre by and for Islanders at an accessible price. In its first year of operation, Kitbag produced six entirely sold-out productions on PEI, as well as a highly lauded Maritime tour of their inaugural production, Tuesdays & Sundays. Kitbag firmly believes that Islanders deserve a theatre scene that challenges, engages, and is accessible to all — all year round. From dinner theatre to cabaret, from contemporary play to theatre for young audiences, Kitbag keeps proving itself to be a vital new voice in the artistic community of PEI.

Kings Playhouse acknowledges that we operate on the traditional and unceded territory of the Mi'kmaq People. Epek'witk, the Mi'kmaq name for Prince Edward Island is one of the seven districts making up the region of Mi'kma'ki in eastern Canada. This particular part of Epek'witk is known as Samkook, which means 'the place where we land'. We are grateful for the opportunity to live, work and create in this beautiful place that has been stewarded for generations by the Mi'kmaq People.
