Langley Players host festival fundraising show

Langley’s drama club may not have won the regional theatre festival competition, but they’re pitching in this weekend to help their counterparts from Chilliwack raise much needed funds to go to the provincials in Kamloops later this month.

This weekend, the Langley Players are hosting three showings of the Chilliwack Players Guild production of Miss Somewhere.

Langley Players hosted the Fraser Valley regional theatre competition back in May, and in addition to hosting the event, they also presented their production of  Escape from Happiness. But they were beat out by Chilliwack for the opportuntunity to take it to the Theatre BC Mainstage competition in Kamloops, which is running July 5 to 11.

Chilliwack playwright Cait Archer presents Miss Somewhere, a story about three friends navigating the stormy waters of faith, sex, and serotonin.

Nicky wanting to wait until she’s married, and so why is she in a bathroom stall with her pants down around her ankles?

Steph wantns to live in the now, fierce, free, and no-strings attached, so why is she in this relationship?

Allison just wants to get better, so why is her brain a category 3 hurricane.

To find out more about these three women and their story, to meet playwright and director Cait Archer and fellow director Gabriel Kirkley, as well as the cast, and to support Chilliwack’s quest to pay for their trip to Kamloops for July 10, people can attend the show at the Langley Playhouse.

The shows run tonight, July 3, at 7:30 p.m., as well as two shows Saturday, July 4, at 2 and 7:30 p.m.

Tickets are available through Brown Paper Tickets or at the door.
