Lew Eegie (Hans Seidemann) gets questioned by reporter Tracey ‘Ace’ Newton (Krista Ediger) in Episode 2 of 'As the Port Churns'.

Recap: As the Port Churns soap opera returns (video)

Episode Three of the Harbour Theatres’ live-action soap opera “As the Port Churns” returns to the Tom Rooney Playhouse on Friday, March 31.

Will the kidnapped mermaid be saved? Will the new reporter in town get her big break after blackmailing the phony doctor? How will fame and heartbreak define the lives of two female performers?

Episode Three of the Harbour Theatres’ live-action soap opera “As the Port Churns” returns to the Tom Rooney Playhouse on Friday, March 31.

David Smook is back masterminding the story and narration. Here is a recap for those who have been biting their nails since the last episode was performed in late November.

“The saga continues at no experience required. If you missed the first two episodes we’ll be filling in the gaps,” Lyle McNish, who plays Dr. Obi Gin.

Pam Again (Chelsea Stamp-Vincent) is abandoned once again by her musical partner and lover, Spammy. The Spammy Whynot and Spam duo proves that perhaps it’s destined never to be — but who knows, maybe he will be back.

After a short stint in prison, Lew Eegie (Hans Seidemann) may forever be changed by his experience, yet he hasn’t learned his lesson. He still seems to be the wing man for the beer business bully James ‘Pipes’ McGurn (Rich Jerstad).

Meanwhile, ‘Pipes’ was about to rekindle his relationship with the mermaid Marina Del Spray (Treena Decker) when she was kidnapped. Pipes has also discovered the talent of Dana Dohlwigger (Jessica Bruce), who ends up on an extended tour of the North West in Fort Fraser.

In a romantic twist, Lew Eegie may be looking for Dana after he stood her up on their first date. His excuse of getting thrown in jail is valid, but now that Dana is a superstar, she may not have time for the flaky felon type.

Dr. Obi Gin is back, and he’s still working out of the Neptune Inn but his medical practice doesn’t seem to be working, especially after getting blackmailed by Tracey ‘Ace’ Newton (Krista Ediger) so he’s venturing into other schemes.

We also found out that ‘Ace’ is pregnant and the father could be Stanley Dohlwigger (Jeff Bill), who she had a fleeting fling with.

Episode Three is on March 31 and Episode Four will be on April 7. The soap opera is hoping to answer some of these questions: where is the mermaid, who is the father, will Spammy every reunite with Pammy, and will Lew Eegie get his date with Dana.

Find out more on Friday night at the Tom Rooney Playhouse. Doors open at 7 p.m. and the show starts at 8 p.m. Tickets are $12 and can be purchased at Homework and at the door. All ages are welcome. Running time is approximately an hour.
