The Show Goes On, but is delayed!
January 2000—It is with a mix of regret and pleasure that ACT must announce a change in the ‘direction’ and schedule for its next production. The new date for the show is March 16, 17 & 18.
The regret is that Anne Putnum has had to withdraw from her role as ‘Director’. The pleasure comes comes from the good news that this withdrawal was in order to accept employment off Island as a professional stage manager. ACT wishes her well and looks forward to working with her again in the future.
Good news is that Anne leaves the casts in good shape. They have decided to continue with her project. Direction for The Ugly Duckling has been taken over by Joe Boyd. Co-Direction for Trifles has been taken on by Monique Lafontaine and Ben Kinder. All three Directors are taking on this task in addition to being members of the cast. Well done folks!
Trifles by Susan Glaspell reveals the workings of the Wright household the morning after Mr. Wright mysteriously dies. The Ugly Duckling by AA Milne is a fairy tale for adults. It explores the relations between the members of a “seen better days” royal family.
The third one act is I Remain… Jane Austen, a one person show featuring ACT favourite Barbara Rhodenhizer. She will be reprising this acclaimed portrayal of Jane Austen under the direction of Terry Pratt. This is a play by V Glasgow Koste that examines the life and work of author Jane Austen. Three In One truly promises to deliver something for everyone.
Three in One - A Night of One Act Plays, will play at the Arts Guild on March 16,17,18. Showtime is 8:00 pm. Tickets are $10.00 and $8.00 students / seniors. Advance tickets are available at Beanz Expresso Bar, The Buzz, Demi Pointe Dance Shop, Hearts and Flowers, or by calling 368-1143.
