Opening Night

Opening Night

By Norm Foster
Directed by Paul Kirkwood-Hackett

It is the opening night of Richard Hyde-Finch’s latest play, but everything seems to be falling apart.  The script is awful, there is fighting amongst the cast, some of the actors haven’t shown up yet, and Richard’s girlfriend wants to talk about why they aren’t married.  Adding to the mayhem, Ruth Tisdale has won a pair of tickets to the new play.  As it is their 25th wedding anniversary, Ruth’s husband, Jack reluctantly accompanies her to the play even though he would much rather be at home watching the seventh game in the World Series.  But hey – what you do for love, right? All of this adds up to hilarity and chaos as everyone tries to get what they want.  Norm Foster is one of Canada’s best comedy writers. His ability to capture our human follies and foibles make him an audience favorite.

Opening Night is staged by arrangement with Pam Winter, Gary Goddard Agency, www.garygoddardagency.com.

The Comfy Bottoms Project

The Comfy Bottoms Project

We hear occasionally from our audience members the wish to have more comfortable seating. Our hand-me-down seats are all at least 40 years old, some even older. A five thousand dollar grant from the Shuswap Community Foundation  has kickstarted the Comfy Bottom Project which will see us replacing all our seats with brand new ones. 

You are invited to support this project and the bottoms of your fellow theatre lovers, by purchasing one or more seats for $250 each. While gifts of any size will be appreciated, your gift of $250 or more will be acknowledged by name on a plaque in the lobby. All donors will receive a tax deductible receipt. Details.
