Broadcast Date – December 6, 2017
With bonus guests Maynard Morrison and Jordan Musycsyn
Well, it’s hard to find a more festive start to the month of December here on SEA AND BE SCENE…And HEARD than catching up with the award-winning and wonderful Bette MacDonald. The oh-so-funny Cape Breton-born lady is on the road with her hit holiday tour – a matter of fact we caught up to her after the opening night of this eleventh season to talk about well…everything… from the creative process to life on the road, her work on Mr.D and her ‘Tis the Season co-stars – speaking of which – in part 2 of this episode we’ll be joined by Jordan Musycsyn one of the newer members of the touring team and in part three Maynard Morrison, Bette’s co-star on and off the stage will jump into the conversation. It was wall-to-wall talent in Truro that day to be sure of it – so let’s get started with the remarkable Bette MacDonald!
