The Shaw Festival is featuring a splashy song-and-dance musical this season. "Sweet Charity" is the story of a dancer seeking love and Julie Martell is on stage almost constantly in the role. She spoke with WBFO's Mike Desmond.

With five venues, settled in a quaint town with plenty of walk-to attractions, the Shaw Festival in Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario, continues to attract a sizeable audience from Buffalo. Anthony Chase reports in during the intermission of "Peter and the Starcatcher" at the Royal George Theatre which is attracting a large number of younger audience members (suitable for 8+) who react audibly to the imaginative plot - the "prequel" to "Peter Pan."
