Terrace Little Theatre
TLT's Triple Bill opens April 22nd and director Adam Kirkwood could not be more excited. It's been a long haul rehearsing two different shows but, as always, it's all been worth it.
Andy Roth, Amber Hansen, Ella Martindale, Julie Jacobs and Nancy Stone Archer have brought Cherie Theissen's One Spring Morning to life with style and panache. The show opens with Ernest sitting on a bus stop bench trying to enjoy his morning paper. A steady stream of crazy females starting with a cranky old lady descend upon our intrepid middle manager and chase him from stop to stop making him rue the day he decided to live dangerously and try a new route. Julie Jacobs and Nancy Stone Archer share the role of Old Lady, Ella Martindale's "Little Girl" takes a turn driving Ernest out of his mind with Elsie, played by Amber Hansen finishing him off. It's funny, sad, overly theatrical (when needed) and not to be missed by anyone.
Elevator (by the same author) takes the stage after a short intermission. Ada Sarsiat and Marianne Brorup Weston bring us a day in the life of Martha and Katie. Two little old ladies who spend A LOT of time on the Elevator of their building riding up and down, avoiding the landlady, staying out of the rain in an all out effort to avoid getting goiter. Elevator is at times very, very funny and at times quite sad. The actors take you on an epic journey moving easily between comedy and drama leading up to an ending that will leave you wanting more...
Last, but certainly not least, our third act features the Copper Mountain Stringband. Jack and Jean Cook, Eric Sweeney and Wayne Sheridan are local legends in the acoustic music field. Their eclectic blend of blues, folk, rock and blue grass make for an excellent topper to an evenings entertainment.
The show starts at 8pm sharp at McColl Playhouse on Kalum St in Terrace. Get your tickets at Uniglobe Courtesy Travel before they're all gone.
