The Last Real Summer, by Warren Graves

Directed by Angela Bell

Written by Canadian author Warren Graves, and set in Alberta, Canada. The Last Real Summer is a fascinating and emotional story, centered around 2 young lives at the start of World War II. Narrated by Elizabeth Wharton (played by Cindy Peterson), who returns to her childhood home town after the loss of her husband, and finds herself face to face with many touching and funny memories. As she tells the story, the memories come to life on the stage as we join in her reverie.

The Last Real Summer is a story about love, war, and growing up.

This show is suitable for ages 10 and up.

The Last Real Summer has been entered into the Fraser Valley Zone Festival (Theatre BC), running at the Chilliwack Cultural Centre between May 21 and 26 (our performance is on May 26). Tickets available at the Chilliwack Cultural Centre.

Halfway There, by Norm Foster

Directed by Angela Bell

We had SO MUCH FUN putting this show on for you! Sincere thanks to everyone who came out to see us for your support of the arts in our community!

“Want to laugh until your sides ache? Want to see Canada’s most prolific playwright at the very top of his game? ‘Halfway There’ is Norm Foster at his most beguiling…” Gary Smith, Hamilton Spectator

Halfway There is a truly special show with genuine laughter and love” Sam Tweedle, Kawartha NOW

Halfway There was a hilarious experience that also tugged at your heartstings when it needed to.” Todd Vaughan, Lacombe Express

There’s no such thing as a secret in Stewiacke. Not when the gossips meet for coffee every day at the local diner. Vi, Rita, Mary Ellen, and Janine are all as close as can be, and they know everybody’s business. But when Sean, a heartbroken doctor, moves in to take a temporary job at the clinic, he tips the Maritime town off its axis.

What follows is a month of lessons learned for all, through hilarity, tears and the bonds of unshakeable friendship. Sugar and spice and everything nice…with a dash of Maritime salt!

Written by Canada’s own Norm Foster, “Halfway There” is a feel-good theatrical experience that will keep you smiling long after you leave the theatre.
