A rollicking, interactive play will be performed May 17 to 19 at 7 p.m. and May 19 at 2 p.m.

The venue for the City Slicker and Our Nell is the historic Cumberland United Church (First and Penrith), which has outstanding acoustics and lots of seating.

The play is set in Cumberland “awhile back” and features local names, history and families. Come boo the sinister Sheridan Dunsmuir, cheer the hero Dan Moncrief, and sigh about the sweet young mountain flower Nellie Roberson Beard.

Tickets are at Home and Garden Gate both in Courtenay and Cumberland and the CRI in Cumberland. Kids just love to be involved with the characters so bring the whole family!
