This was truly worth it. It is through donations only, and first come first serve. However, the songs and the troupe members made the show! A great cast with original songs. Even someone not familiar with the history of the area can be entertained.

What an enjoyable evening. The story of Lunenburg in story and song. Well acted by a talented, enthusiastic cast of local actors. You can easily see why it has been a hit at the Fisheries Museum in Lunenburg for 10 years. We can understand the...More

So glad I had the opportunity to watch Glimpses. Laughed for an hour and half straight while being educated on local history. The cast was so energetic and passionate. A must see!

An hour and 45min of straight fun and musical entertainment! Lunenburg history shared through a timeline of songs and humorous enactments. Just leave a donation at the door and enjoy yourself. No other show around quite like it.

Wonderful theater production with vignettes, songs, music all with video playing in the background. All about the history and people of Lunenburg. Wonderful production. A must see. They said this is the last season but hopefully they will be back!
