Bus Stop - April 2014

Bus Stop play

In the middle of a howling snowstorm, a bus with 4 or 5 weary pasengers pulls up at a cheerful roadside diner and as all roads are blocked, they will have to hole up 'til morning.

Cherie, a nightclub chanteuse, a 21 year old cowboy with a ranch of his own and headstrong as a bull is trying to get ready to sling her over his shoulder and carry her, alive and kicking all the way to Montana!!! She tries ducking out from under his clumsy embraces, and screeching at him to "shut up", she feels that somehow she is going to end up in Montana. Then, the proprietor of the cafe and the bus driver find time to develop a friendship of their own. What's more, a middle-aged scholar comes to terms with himself and a young girl who works in the cafe also gets her first taste of romance.

Put this all together and you will find an uproarious comedy. Come and enjoy this comedy, with a talented cast of 7, all of which bring these characters to life.

Bus Stop is coming in April.

April 10, 11, 12 at 8:00 PM
April 12, 13, at 2:00 PM

Peachland Players score again

by Doug Armitage

With a kiss, the handsome prince awoke Snow White who had bitten into the poisoned apple. She became Snow WhiteQueen and the wicked witch lost her powers and ended up keeping house for the seven dwarfs. What a happy ending to the most successful production Peachland Players has ever run!  Every performance sold out in advance!
 
The Musical Play by Carol Weiss, with its cast a mix of child, teen and adults drawn from from West Kelowna and Peachland with meaningful songs and a contemporary script, charmed the audiences. Apart from pleasing the viewers, such a spread of ages does wonders for the bonding of all those in the production, and, especially, the personal development of the children who develop self-confidence, a sense of team play and ease in working with adults.
 
Over the past 14 years, the company under the inspired direction of Bill Bennett, has performed serious adult drama such as "the Chalk Garden", "Waiting for the Parade" and "Agnes of God", musicals "The Fantastiks" and "You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown" and comedy such as "Pirates of the Currybean" and now "Snow White"  It is becoming entrenched as a real Peachland and Westside asset. Its versatility is proven by this kind of play and also adult material.
 
The next productions planned for early 2013 are famed author Noel Coward's spooky English comedy "Blithe Spirit" to be followed by William Inge's "Bus Stop" both of which have appeared as movies as well as live theatre.  The Players' website will announce the performance dates.
 
Meantime, the Company wishes you a Merry Christmas and Happy Holiday Season and thanks you for your support of community theatre.
