 Storytelling Festival Radio Dramas

Wyatt Heritage Properties Incorporated has produced a number of radio dramas that bring alive Summerside and Prince Edward Island history.  The dramas are true stories of historic happenings that were researched through the MacNaught History Centre and Archives in Summerside. The short dramas were recorded before a live audience using amateur voice actors. The sounds and music were created by foleys and musicians in the same manner of early live radio.

Wyatt Heritage Properties Incorporated has embarked on this project as a way of both entertaining and educating people about our Island past. Radio creates the best pictures. More dramas will be added to the site as developed during the annual fall festival.

Other ways to access the dramas are through our YouTube channel or through Culture Summerside’s website.

The dramas have been made possible through the support of Canadian Heritage, the Prince Edward Island Government and the City of Summerside.
