Kersley Players on stage again

Tales from Me and Irmie: dinner theatre at its finest in Kersley community hall

Don Peek-Vout and Sue Matteson bring the characters to life.

The Kersley Players, now in their 27th year, are busy rehearsing for their upcoming production Tales From Me and Irmie. This is an original play by local playwright, Roy Teed. The play, as rewritten to be a full length show, is being performed for the first time here in Quesnel. As a one-act play it has previously been performed in the Lower Mainland and at the Vancouver Fringe Festival.

Tickets are on sale now at Cariboo Propane and the Kersley Store at $25 each and include the always excellent Kersley roast beef dinner and the show. There is a cash bar available as well. Dinner theatre performances are April 4, 5, 11, 12 and May 10, with doors opening at 6 p.m. Thursday, April 10 is a performance-only night, with no dinner.

Come on out and enjoy some live theatre and get ready for a high-energy visit with Sam, Irmie and Bee. You will hear their amusing tales, all bound up in a complex web of rural angst in Nestor, Canada. The show is an adult comedy.

The Kersley Players are members of Theatre BC, and will be taking this play on the road to compete in the Central Interior Zone Festival May 30 in Williams Lake.
