Terrace Little Theatre
The rehearsing is done. The stage is set. The cast and crew of Triple Bill are poised and ready to bring you an evening's entertainment the likes of which you've never seen (or heard).
Terrace Little Theatre and Copper Mountain Stringband are pleased to announce the opening of their nine night run of One Spring Morning and Elevator. We've got two great one-act shows for you followed by a set of the regions finest local acoustic talent. Copper Mountain Stringband (CMSB) will take the stage following the two outstanding theatre pieces with their eclectic mix of blues, folk and bluegrass favorites... band leader Jack Cook along with his wife Jean, lead guitarist Wayne Sheridan and Eric Sweeney are local legends in their field. They will have you singing along and dancing in your seat as they move through their repertoire blending catchy original tunes like She Loves her Car More Than She Loves Me and haunting ballads like Caleb Meyer to finish the evening in a style all their own.
Building on the success of our most recent dinner theatre, debut director Adam Kirkwood has taken two scripts by local playwright Cherie Stewart Theissen from words on a page to reality in One Spring Morning and Elevator. TLT veterans Andy Roth, Julie Jacobs and Nancy Stone Archer join Ella Martindale (winner for Best Junior Musical Theatre in the Pacific Northwest Music Festival) and new-comer Amber Hansen in One Spring Morning. Ernest is a regular guy. Waiting for a bus, reading his paper enjoying a lovely spring morning when his life is thrown into chaos by three increasingly crazy females. He learns a valuable lesson about life and what happens when one steps out of one's three feet of personal space.
Marianne Brorup Weston and Ada Sarsiat star in Elevator. Two little old lady's who spend their days on the elevator of their apartment complex riding up and down dodging the landlady, avoiding the rain and goiter while teaching us that things aren't always what they seem. Intensely funny and sometimes sad, Martha and Katie are two little old ladies you won't soon forget.
These three great acts are a bit of a departure for TLT. In an effort to stretch your entertainment dollar and provide a full evenings entertainment, we bring you this Triple-Bill. Tickets are available at Uniglobe in Terrace or at the door. Interac is available at the playhouse so you needn't worry about having cash on hand. The shows start at 8pm sharp and run Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights until May 8th at the McColl Plahouse on Kalum St. in Terrace.
Come on out for a nice relaxing evening and support your local arts scene!
