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.

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.
