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

Had a wonderful time enjoying Glimpses this week. The actors are very professional and we laughed so much! Great way to learn some Lunenburg history. Not to be missed.

So funny and so well performed. The cast often gets up close to the audience, they can sing, stories are very engaging and pretty much true. I wish history had been taught this way back in school! Too bad this is the last season, we...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!

Fantastic show. 10 years running. Twice a week during summer. All original songs- lyrics and music. History of Lunenburg about 2 hours. Singing and acting talent and delivery equal to Come From Away. Parallels are obvious, in both story and delivery. Come and visit museum...More

There is no contact number for Glimpses since they present in the theatre room of a museum (Fisheries Museum in Lunenburg) and not in one that has a box office. The shows will begin July 7 and happen every Tuesday and... More

Shows start July 7, 2015 and run every Tuesday and Thursday at 7:30 until September 10th, 2015. Best to arrive at the Theatre early as seating is limited. See you there !!
