Summerland Singers and Players present Mesa, the tale of a funny and poignant road trip based on a true story. Mesa is Bud’s story, he is 93 and has traveled with his wife Molly from his home in Calgary to his snowbird home in Mesa Arizona every year forever. Sadly Molly has passed on and Bud wants to make one last trip but is not able to drive himself. His grandson-in-law, Paul, is roped in to do the driving.

Paul is looking forward to the trip as a great adventure. Bud has other ideas! He wants to get from Calgary to Mesa in as short a time as possible. Mesa stars Summerland residents James Fofonoff and Bob Read.

The show will be at Centre Stage Theatre on Oct. 20, 21 and 22 at 8 p.m. with a 2 p.m. matinee on Oct. 22.

Tickets are available at both the Sweet Tooth and the Summerland Art Gallery.
