  • 4. The Fantasticks | White Rock Players

    The Fantasticks The Fantasticks is our return to musicals after our successful run of Spamalot in 2021. The Fantasticks is a funny and romantic musical about a boy, a girl, and their two fathers who try to keep them apart. The narrator, El Gallo, asks the audience to use their imagination and follow him into a world of moonlight and magic. The boy and the girl fall in love, grow apart and finally find their way back to each other after realizing the truth in El Gallo's words that, "without a hurt, the heart is hollow.” The Fantasticks is the longest-running musical in the world and with good reason: at the heart of its breathtaking poetry and subtle theatrical sophistication is a purity and simplicity that transcends cultural barriers. The result is a timeless fable of love that manages to be nostalgic and universal at the same time. Directed by Kerry O’Donovan . Kerry has performed on our stage many times and has been musical director for several of our Christmas Pantomimes.

  • 1. Baskerville Sep 29-Oct 16, 2022 | White Rock Players

    Ken Ludwig's BASKERVILLE: A Sherlock Holmes Mystery In the moors of Devon, in the West of England, festers the legend of the Hound: a tale of a monstrous dog that terrorizes the countryside. When Sir Charles Baskerville is found dead outside his home, it wasn’t his convulsed features that raised suspicions that something foul was at play. It was the footprints found near his body—not of a man, not of a woman, but of a gigantic hound. It seems the legendary hound of the Baskervilles might be something more than a local superstition and there’s only one man who can solve the case: Sherlock Holmes, accompanied by his trusted companion, Dr. Watson, of course. Who was Sir Charles secretly meeting the night he died? What did he see that sent him running for his life away from the safety of the house? And is there a real giant hellhound prowling the moors of Devon? Holmes and Watson will have to race against time to solve the mystery before the newest heir of the manor, Sir Henry, becomes the next Baskerville to be taken by this curse. Written by Ken Ludwig , the playwright who brought us Lend Me a Tenor, Leading Ladies and The Game is Afoot; Baskerville: A Sherlock Holmes Mystery is a fun, fast-paced adventure that takes everyone’s favourite detective from London to the Devonshire countryside to solve the mystery. Directed by Thomas Gage, the show stars WRPC regular & club Artistic Director, Fred Partridge, as the affable Watson and newcomer Tina Teeninga as Sherlock Holmes, with Katherine Morris, Scott Campbell and Bryce Mills as the actors who bring the rest of the story to life by portraying over 40 characters! “This is a play about joy,” says director Thomas Gage. “It’s the joy of storytelling, the fun that we have when we play and use our imagination to bring worlds to life. That’s what theatre is all about, at its core and this play revels in that playfulness.” Baskerville: A Sherlock Holmes Mystery runs: September 29th to October 16, 2022 $20 Preview September 29th | 8pm Thursday to Saturday evenings | 8pm Sunday matinees | 2:30pm TICKETS A murderously, fun adventure!
