Mike Uncorked: Come to CENTRESTAGE for THE LONG WEEKEND
CentreStage Theatre, located at 61 River Street in Kentville, is celebrating Canada 150 in July and August by performing plays by Canadian playwrights. The first production is Norm Foster’s The Long Weekend (July) and the second is Bonnie Laing’s Peggy & Grace (August).
Let’s chat about the first production. Norm Foster’s The Long Weekend is a hilarious look at the truth and lies of a friendship between two couples over the course of a long weekend. Full of surprises, fun, romance, mayhem, and hilarity, The Long Weekend is the perfect summer comedy! Starring local actors Linda Levy-Fisk, Mike Butler (me!), Alan Tupper, and Lizon Richard, this side-splitting farce has had the cast in stitches for weeks of rehearsals, and now they’re ready to share the laughs with you. Something neat to note: in Spring 2013, Quick as a Wink Theatre in Windsor staged The Long Weekend to glowing reviews. The cast included myself and Linda Levy-Fisk. We’re reprising the roles of Roger and Wynn in this new production at CentreStage. As well, June Hutchinson has returned as Director for the show, which has made it an enjoyable familiar experience.
