What a fantastic performance by a dedicated group of volunteers, who tell the story of their town through song. A very pleasant way to spend a part of your evening. Yup, its a small theater and fills quickly so show up early.

What an enjoyable way to learn the history of the area! Musical vignettes on local history - historical events, landmarks and individuals from Lunenburg County. By donation only but must get there early. Audience from all over the world. Great performances by the troupe and a wonderful venue (100 or so seats) at the Fisheries Museum of the Atlantic -...

A family member organized a group to go see this presentation. It was wonderful! Great vignettes of local history from Lunenburg County and surrounding area. The audience was comprised of locals, others from across Canada and the US and multiple countries around the world, it appeared that everyone enjoyed the show. All local performers and original songs. Great evening!

Having read reviews of this we had high expectations, which can be dangerous, but the show more than lived up to them. The history of the town delivered in a string of musical skits with great songs and a lot of humour and warmth. Written and performed by amateurs but professional in standard. Great friendly atmosphere, with audience from all... More

Like Theatree Show in Lunenburg Nova Scotia called "Glimpses" If you are in the Lunenburg area, it's a must see!!!. The show educates about the history of Lunenburg and area Lot of laughs, lots. very musical too. Only a donation requested. Get there early around 6:45 as it starts at 7:30, for a great seat. YOPU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED

Highly recommended!! This is truly a hidden gem in Lunenburg. A troupe of local actors and singers share the history of the village in an interesting and very enjoyable hour and a half. The audience and the actors share in the fun and laughs. We are so happy that we happened upon this great local show.

We were looking for live local music and a history of Lunenburg, and got both. Great show with excellent harmonies. Our kids enjoyed it too. The show starts at 7:30 but people were arriving before 7. The room was full by 7:30, so best to arrive a bit early. You'll want to do dinner before, or join the cast after... More

What a lovely surprise to come upon such an authentic, engaging and lovely group of talented performers. You simply must go, not only for the historical aspect, but for the giddy theatricality. The Glimpses troupe is a motley crew of very talented folk...singing, acting, carousing about, they exhibit such heart in putting on this show about Lunenburg's local history and... More

My husband and I decided to attend Glimpses as part of our 20th Anniversary celebration We weren't sure what to expect but it exceeded all our expectations. I would go again as I am sure that there are some things that we missed the first time . Lots going on at the same time. Very entertaining even the children present... More
