Quebec's Hudson Village Theatre has announced the productions planned for its 2013 summer season of fun Canadian plays. Calgary playwright Ken Cameron's Harvest will get the fun-filled season started, from June 12-29, with the story of a retired couple who rent their farmhouse and the enterprising young man who turns it into a marijuana-grow op.

Next, C2 Entertainment's Summer of Love, by Colin Stewart and Chris McHarge, will play July 3 to 14. Revisit the tie-dye days with this musical revue featuring songs from such artists as The Beach Boys, Bob Dylan, Joni Mitchell, Janis Joplin, and more.

Norm Foster, Canada's most produced playwright, will star in a Lighthouse Festival Theatre production of his own play, On a First Name Basis, a comedy about a man who decides to learn something about his housekeeper, Miss Hopperstaad, after 30 years of knowing her. It is set for July 24-28.

The season's final offering, which will play August 8-25, will be a Markgraf Lowe-directed production of Peggy and Grace, a comedy by Bonnie Laing. The play follows two widows who set off in a camper on the road trip of their lives.

Founded in 1993, The Hudson Village Theatre is a professional company offering a diverse selection of year-round programs. Their home is located in Hudson's historic train station.
