Kersley Musical Theatre is hard at work on The Fantasticks, with opening night (Nov . 2) coming up quickly.
Last minute touches to costumes, bits and pieces of props to paint, assemble, organize then try, reject and look again. Where in the world can we get denim coveralls in the right size? Does anyone have a ladder with steps on both sides? Who can sew? Let’s try this.
We are having a great response in ticket sales and are grateful to the public who will get to see some astounding performance skills from this quality band of actors.
We’ve been rehearsing in two places, the United Church has been extremely generous in loaning space and once the Kersley Players were done their Festival we’ve been in to the Kersley Hall. Walking in to the Kersley Hall for the first time was definitely a feeling of coming home.
We are proud to be able to present this as a fundraiser for our dear friend Bev Pontius. She’s been able to attend a few of the rehearsals and enjoys watching the show come together. She’s known some of the actors since they were in diapers and has been an integral part of the musical skills they’ve acquired.
Tickets are available at the Quesnel Info Centre by the Museum, Kersley General Store and Bo-Peep Boutique, $20 each. The matinee is Nov. 2, 2 p.m. and the evening shows will have the door open at 7 p.m., 7:30 p.m. showtime. A concession will be available, with homemade goodies. See you there.
