You may have been hearing a buzz around Tumbler Ridge about a dinner theatre. Grizzly Valley Players (GVP), who brought you ?Tale of the Glass Slipper? last June, will be performing another original production on the evening of Saturday, March 11th. The ensemble cast is the adult drama group under Theatre On The Ridge.
The play, ?TR Time Travel Through The Musical Decades? will feature the regular GVP cast members in numerous ongoing live scenes, accompanied by the crooning of your favourite songs of the past and present, most renditions with the voices of the cast. There will also be a few tantalizing surprises from guest performers.
Beginning in the laboratory of a crazed mad scientist, played by Sir Bob Norman, the quest to travel time through music begins. Sir Bob is new to GVP this year and looks to be a promising addition.
Among those entertaining you throughout the evening in several roles will be Jael Rochon and Janet Delpierre. Conveniently, several members of the TR Adult Community Choir are regular members of GVP and will take lead roles as well. They are: Sherry Berringer, Barb Schuerkamp, Lucas Evans, Carole-May Coty, Erin Hanna, Charissa Tonnesen, and Sir Bob Norman. Just in case you wondered if any of the singers could hold a tune. But make no mistake – this production is all about fun, fun, fun and not Canadian Idol. Amd for the faint of heart, there is even a touch of burlesque in the second half of the show.
The event will take place on Saturday, March 11th in the Community Centre in rooms 4 and 5. Cocktails at 6:00 pm and dinner at 6:30. Seating is limited and tickets will be pre-sold ONLY. There will be no tickets sold at the door due to the number of dinners ordered for this event. This will be a liquor licensed event and mature-theme show, no minors will be admitted. Deadline date to buy your ticket is March 1st. Tickets are available at the front desk of the Community Centre at $25 per plate.
This event was made possible through the sponsorship of the District of TR through a community event grant awarded to the Tumbler Ridge Community Arts Council (TRCAC) and then given to Theatre On The Ridge – Grizzly Valley Players. The contributions of the District and TRCAC are especially appreciated so that the theatre groups can bring these sorts of events to the stage for the residents of Tumbler Ridge.
Ladies and gentleman, step right up! Have a great night out with dinner, drinks and live theatre, right here in Tumbler Ridge. There will be singing and dancing and a few raised eyebrows?you won?t want to miss it!
