Theatre group seeks space

The members of Summerland Singers and Players would like a place to hang their hats and store their costumes and props.

The members of Summerland Singers and Players would like a place to hang their hats, along with room for the rest of their costumes and props.

Bryan Laver, vice-president of the community theatre group, said the group also needs to find meeting space and rehearsal space, although the storage space is the most urgent need.

For props a single-car garage will provide enough space. The costumes take up enough space to fill two commercial dress racks. Costumes must be protected from the elements, he said.

While the theatre group has been able to make arrangements for rehearsals for this fall’s production, space will be needed for future shows.

“You need a large area, at the very least a full hall floor,” Laver said.

Summerland Singers and Players has operated for more than a century and over the years has met in numerous locations in Summerland.

Those who have a suitable storage space, meeting area or rehearsal space are asked to contact Summerland Singers and Players president Betty-Ann Xenis at 250-494-5295 or vice-president Bryan Laver at 250-493-6539.
