Talented actors appear on stage

Last week Centre Stage was alive with amusing, romantic vignettes set in the mythical community of Almost Maine.

Last week Centre Stage was alive with amusing, romantic vignettes set in the mythical community of Almost Maine.

Starting April 10 Centre Stage will be transformed back to ancient Greece as the Grade 12 Acting Class perform Metamorphosis.

This play is based on Ovid’s Greek tales and features a contemporary retelling of classic Greek myths.  It will be at Centre Stage Theatre Thursday, April 10, Friday, April 11 and Saturday, April 12.

Admission is by donation. Curtain time is 7 p.m.

As everyone who attended the recent production of Bonnie and Clyde can attest we are blessed with very talented actors in our local high school so if you have the opportunity drop by Centre Stage Theatre for some Greek myths.

If, however, you are interested in a play set in recent times consider attending Many Hats Theatre Company’s production of  Boeing Boeing.

Boeing Boeing is the story of Bernard a successful architect (played by Paul Varga) in swinging ’60s Paris.

Bernard is also very successful with the ladies. In fact, he juggles the hearts of three air hostesses who jet in and out of his groovy bachelor pad: Gloria, Gabriella, and Gretchen, AKA America, Italy and Germany. (Tammy Hansel, Shannon French, and Kim Burnett.)

Bernard is aided and abetted by his housekeeper Berthe (Jane Pilkey) and his best Buddy Robert (Andrew Zender.)

As frequently happens when new technology is introduced, everything isn’t quite the same when Boeing introduces a new faster jet. It is then that Bernard’s precise romantic timetable goes hysterically off course and turbulence looms.

This play, by French playwright and master of the farce, Marc Camoletti, opens on the Cannery Stage in the Cannery Trade Centre, 1475 Fairview Rd., Penticton Thursday, April 10 and runs Thursday through Sundays until May 4.

You can get tickets at the Wine Country Visitor’s Centre at Railway and Eckhardt or by calling  250-276-2170.

For those who enjoy live music Lindsey Walker will be at Sumac Ridge this Friday, April 11.  Tickets are $20.  Contact Sumac Ridge Winery for reservations or more details.
