A cast of 14 young actors are rehearsing feverishly in preparation for bringing their rendition of J.R.R. Tolkienâ€™s The Hobbit alive on the stage of The Venue later this month.
Itâ€™s Langley meets Middle Earth, said producer and director Faith Toronchuk, inviting theatre goers to join her and the cast on their journey.
The play begins Friday, Feb. 28, and will run for two weekends, with evening and matinee showings.
The Venue stage is located at the Friends Langley Vineyard, at 5708 Glover Rd. Tickets to The Hobbit are $15 and available online from ImagineThatPlace.com or at the door 30 minutes ahead of show time.
Beckyâ€™s New Car held over
Two additional dates have been added to the Surrey Little Theatreâ€™s current running production of Beckyâ€™s New Car.
This comedy, featuring a number of Langley actors, was originally set to wrap up Feb. 22, but because of selling outs most of the show times, the team â€“ led by producer Laurie Hohlbein and her directing husband Marko Hohlbein â€“ decided to extend the run. Two more shows have been added: Friday, Feb. 28 and Saturday, March 1.
Tickets are $15 and available by calling 604-576-8451, emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, or going to www.brownpapertickets.com.
