When Sasquatch gets in the way of a marriage

Peninsula Players production begins at Muse Winery in North Saanich on July 14

Suddenly Sasquatch plays at Muse Winery in North Saanich

The Peninsula Players and Muse Winery are teaming up again to put on their third annual summer show.

Suddenly Sasquatch, written by Sasha Moriarty-Schieven and produced and directed by Gerald and Chantelle Schieven, will take place on the newly built Ortega Terrace at the winery, designed to let the scenery in with its open sides and to keep playgoers protected from the elements with its roof.

This year’s show follows two characters, Amelia and Roderick, as they are pressured to marry by their domineering mothers. But everything is turned upside-down when Amelia meets the Sasquatch.

Playgoers are encouraged to enjoy lunch or dinner from the Bistro Muse before they take in the show.

The two previous shows put on by the players and Muse were Dial ‘M’ for Merlot in 2010 and Gone with the Wine in 2011.

The show runs July 14, 28 and Aug. 11 at 7:30 p.m., July 29 and Aug. 12 at 4 p.m. Tickets are $25 and are available at Stonestreet Cafe, Muse Winery or by calling 250-656-2552.
