"Perk up, pianist!" returns to the Halifax Fringe Festival!

Sarah transforms her award-winning role as “concert pianist” into a stand-up, or rather, sit-down piano-filled comedy. “Perk up, pianist!” is a uniquely charming music and storytelling experience that takes you deep inside the world of a touring classical musician.

Saturday September 2 at 8pm
Sunday September 3 at 2:25pm
Monday September 4 at 7pm

“One of the best hours I’ve ever spent at the Fringe.” [The Coast, Halifax]

"Her comic timing is as solid as her musical meter." [The Edmonton Journal]

“Hagen reminds us the beauty of how an honest solo performance can make you so easily fall in love with its performer.” [Montreal Rampage]

“...she played the organ. The church organ. But this is the kind of wordplay and double entendre that she uses to great effect, seeming charming and innocent on the surface — I was occasionally reminded of Jan Smithers’ Bailey Quarters on WKRP in Cincinnati — before revealing the virtuoso vixen underneath.” [Local Xpress]
