Of a Certain Age

ACT (a community theatre) presents OF A CERTAIN AGE

ACT (a community theatre) is planning their 4th production for 2015 - ACT’s 20th anniversary year. The show, titled OF A CERTAIN AGE, will consist of three light-hearted one-act plays be held at the Guild in mid November.  Directors Ellen Carol, Sharon MacDonald and Nancy McLure bring a wealth of theatre experience to the project.

All three scripts feature a role for a woman ‘of a certain age’. Two of the plays, “The Pretty Trap” and “Lord Byron’s Love Letter”, are written by Tennessee Williams. The third play, “The Prompter”, was written by David Moses for the well-loved local actress Mae Ames. A special feature of the production will be a vocalist / narrator who will set the stage for each play.

OF A CERTAIN AGE will coincide with an exhibition in the Gallery at the Guild of memorabilia - photos, props, costumes, posters, etc. from ACT’s 20 years of involvement with amateur theatre in the community.

The production OF A CERTAIN AGE will take place at the Guild in Charlottetown on November 13 (7:30pm) and November 14 (2:00pm and 7:30pm). Tickets are $20 and will be available at the door, cash only.

For further information, contact or telephone 902-892-4384.
