Always a popular event, the evening will be highlighted with a short teaser from CLT’s holiday show, The Drowsy Chaperone.

Billed as a musical within a comedy, The Drowsy Chaperone is a full-scale, Tony Award-winning Broadway musical, written by Canadians Bob Martin and Don McKellar (book), Lisa Lambert and Greg Morrison (music and lyrics).

If you’ve ever sat in a dark theatre and thought, “Dear Lord in heaven, please let it be good,” this is the show for you! CLT’s production of this lively, witty show is directed and choreographed by Susan Bradshaw with musical direction by Sharon Pridham and features many popular local actors.

The short and funny scene Dec. 19 will feature Kate Morrison and Alex Nicoll, as the bride and groom Janet and Robert, performing one of the show-stopping tunes from the production, Accident Waiting to Happen.

Jennifer Moses, Tony Arnold,  Alex Nicoll, Kate Morrison, James Coates,  Darryl Craig, Lynn Hodge, Marty Douglas, Steve Gordon, Shannon Phoenix,  Percy Gledhill, Matt Bowerman and Melisa Devost are all local, talented and experienced actors who give great performances.

The supporting cast includes dancers Erin Humphry, Victoria Stolting, Gina Foster, and Jenna Foster, plus chorus members Bruce Muir, Jason Begg, Camille Soper, Michelle Sinclair, Mela Bilodeau, Jacquie Leung, and Val Macdonald.

CLT’s rehearsal Space is at the corner of 17th Street and McPhee Avenue in Courtenay, behind JET-FM. Park in the parking lot and look for the red CLT door.

Doors will open at 7 p.m. for a Meet and Greet, followed by a short business meeting at 7:30 and the teaser at 8. Admission is by donation at the door to the CLT Bursary Fund. Seating is limited.
