Local play retuns to Filberg

Fish and Chips and Hominy Grits is an original play by local gal Betty Annand.

Fish and Chips and Hominy Grits is an original play by local gal Betty Annand.

She has written several plays and books about the Comox Valley; including Murphy’s Wake, which was performed last March. This year’s comedy was awarded first prize in the 1998 BC Senior Games in Prince George.

It returns to Courtenay Recreation’s Filberg Centre for two performances March 12 at 1:30 p.m. The matinee will have doors open at 1. The evening performance will start at 7 with doors opening at 6:30.

This riotous comedy is produced by the Evergreen Club drama group also known as the Second Stage Players. Come and have a good laugh and enjoy great music!

An’ thar’s no need to gussy up, but you can if you want to or you can come in gum boots, aka English Wellies, and overalls and feel right at home!

Refreshments will be provided by Comox Valley Pathfinders and Guides for a donation to help these young people attend a Spirit of Adventure Rendezvous in Enderby during the summer of 2014.

The play is filled with laughter guaranteed to make your sides ache, intrigue, and romance followed by a toe-tappin’ country hoedown when a family of hillbillies and their English cousins, whom they meet for the first time, inherit a hotel in the big city of Courtenay from their common ancestor, Uncle Cecil.

Tickets are a steal of a deal and are available at the Florence Filberg Centre at 411 Anderton Ave. For more information, call Courtenay Recreation’s Filberg Centre at 250-338-1000.
