Kersley Players are taking to the stage for the second time this year in the lighthearted romp Turn the Page, Nov. 22 – 24.
In May, Kersley Players celebrated 25 years of theatrical excellence with a frock and tie performance of Blind Date. What better way to commemorate a quarter century of award-winning theatre than with a metrosexual Big Foot.
However, patrons of previous Players productions may notice a few changes from the tried and true with this upcoming production.
First, this will be one of the few shows presented by the Kersley Players that has not been penned by the prolific local playwright Roy Teed.
Turn the Page is in the same vein as a 1970s G-rated situation comedy. It’s the story of Gerald (Ron Potter) who just retired and is now spending all his time with wife Gwen (Lana Johnson) and their lay-about son Robert (Darrell Austin) who has no interest in anything but his computer. That is, until he meets newly-divorced next door neighbour Brenda (Tammy Steinbach.)
The cast is completed with 16-year-old Carter De Rose and 12-year-old Celina De Rose who play Chris and Cindy.
The changes on stage are not the only differences attendees will notice. All performances will be “show only.” No dinner will be offered, although if you’re prepared to share with the cast, they may let you bring in your own consumables – pizza preferred.
Tickets can be purchased at Cariboo Propane, $10 each for performances Nov. 22 – 24 in Kersley Hall, showtime 7:30 p.m.
