Students in Summerland Secondary School’s Acting 11 class will present a series of comedy sketches at Centre Stage Theatre this evening.

Drama teacher Heather Ayris said many of the short sketches are from Saturday Night Live, but three were written by students at the school.

The evening will have a James Bond theme.

In addition to the sketches, students will also perform songs from some of the James Bond movies.

Ayris said the 32 students in the class have taken on other roles in providing the evening entertainment, including directing and producing the show.

“We’ve got a really strong group,” Ayris said of the class. “I’ve got some really good organizers.”

Many of the students were in Phantom of the Opera last year and most have roles in Hairspray, which will be staged in February.

The show will be held this evening, Dec. 13, at 7 p.m. at Centre Stage Theatre.

Admission is by donation.
