Curtain rises on Opening Night

St. Luke’s Players usher in a new season Wednesday night

The St. Luke’s Players are bringing the hilarious comedy Opening Night to the stage. Performances will run over the next two weeks

Let’s face it – theatre can be boring, especially when you’re dragged to it by your spouse.

The St. Luke’s Players know that, which is why they’ve prepared a production of Opening Night, a hilarious play about a husband being dragged to the theatre by his wife.

“The antics begin as Jack and Ruth Tisdale celebrate their 25th wedding anniversary with an evening at the theatre,” reads the description. “It’s a dream come true for Ruth and an imposition for Jack, who would rather be at home watching the World Series.

“However, after the events both on and off the stage that fateful night, their lives and those of all involved are irreparably altered.”

The comedy, directed by Geoffrey Davidson, is set to open Wednesday, and is sure to have even the harshest critics in stitches.

Evening performances (7:30 p.m.) are scheduled for Oct. 14 to 17 and 21 to 24, with 2 p.m. matinees on Oct. 17, 18, 24 and 25. All shows will take place at the St. Luke’s Hall, located at 3821 Cedar Hill Cross Rd.

Advance tickets are available online at ticketrocket.co, by phone at 250-590-6291 or in person at the Ticket Rocket box office, located at #2 – 1609 Blanshard St. The box office is open Tuesday to Friday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Tickets will also be available at the door.
