More than a Meeting with CLT

The public is invited to attend, enjoy the Meet and Greet beginning at 7 and stay for a special performance

On Oct. 16 at 7 p.m., Courtenay Little Theatre is holding a More than a Meeting event at its club space at the corner of 17th St. and McPhee Avenue in Courtenay.

The public is invited to attend, enjoy the Meet and Greet beginning at 7 and stay for a special performance of the short one-act play Lemonade by James Prideaux at 7:30. A short general meeting will follow the entertainment.

Directed by Shari Jakubiec and featuring Val Macdonald and Kirstin Humpherys, Lemonade is about two matrons in the 1960s who seek respite from their middle aged lives by selling lemonade to holiday travellers.

The two women trade drinks and share fantasies that they have created to brighten their dull lives. The fantasies loose lustre as the lemonade grows tepid.

Prideaux’s theme is the desperation with which we seek to evade the mundane, the illusions small people live by and the emptiness which can exist between the superficial appearances of supposed well-being.

Lemonade is presented by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Services, Inc. in New York and will be CLT’s entry in the One Act Festival in Qualicum Nov. 1 to 4.

Courtenay Little Theatre is the Comox Valley’s award-winning community theatre group whose latest production, The 39 Steps, has recently spellbound theatregoers at the Sid Williams Theatre.  With two more shows remaining in the 2012-13 season: in December The Magic Tinderbox pantomime, and The Winslow Boy in April, this vibrant theatre community welcomes new members throughout the year.

You do not need to be a member in order to join us for More than a Meeting.
