Present Laughter

Written by Noel Coward

Directed by Susanne de Pencier

Garry Essendine, a successful and self-obsessed actor in the midst of a mid-life crisis, finds himself in a situation bordering on farce as he prepares to travel for a touring commitment in Africa . The theatre’s favourite leading man suddenly finds himself juggling a fawning ingenue, a crazed playwright, an aggressive seductress, his ex-wife, and the personal lives of his friends. A delicious drawing room comedy by the master of twentieth century wit.

Seussical

Presented by: Fraser Valley Gilbert Sullivan Society

The Cat in the Hat tells the story of Horton, an elephant who discovers a speck of dust that contains the Whos, including Jojo, a Who child sent off to military school for thinking too many “thinks.” Horton faces a double challenge: not only must he protect the Whos from a world of naysayers and dangers, but he must guard an abandoned egg, left in his care by the irresponsible Mayzie La Bird. Although Horton faces ridicule, danger, kidnapping and a trial, the intrepid Gertrude McFuzz never loses faith in him. Ultimately, the powers of friendship, loyalty, family and community are challenged and emerge triumphant.

Weekday shows: 7:30pm

It's that wonderful time again to meet the cast of our nearly here show, Present Laughter! Stayed tuned throughout the next few weeks to see the faces you'll soon see on stage.

If you haven't already, turn on "Post Notifications" so you'll be notified when we post to Facebook with information and photos from the playhouse.

Our first Meet the Cast star is local favourite Bryce Paul Mills!

Bryce started acting many years ago in England and studied drama at Stafford College, Manchester Met and the London Academy of Music and Drama. He toured Britain appearing in Shakespearean plays and many other productions, and worked as backstage crew in London's West End.

Since arriving in Canada, he has been the Dame in White Rock's Panto from Pinocchio in 2012, to last years Robin Hood and the Skytrain of Doom. He won a best supporting actor in the Fraser Valley Zone Fest for Woman In Mind, and has played diverse roles such as Richard the Lionhearted in A Lion in Winter and wild Spanish suitor, Manolo in the female version of the Odd Couple.

Bryce recently played the con man actor Leo Clarke in Leading Ladies, and bumbling Russian envoy Bibinski in Ninotchka. Playing tipsy obsessed Morris is a welcome break from the running around in previous shows. He can enjoy a rest in the back with Greg, whilst others have a plethora lines to remember. Enjoy!
