My small town has an incredible new venue for the local arts scene, The Grande Parlour Theatre. I have been fortunate to be involved with this theatre since its inception and now that it has been born – wowza – it is NOT holding anything back. From full-length original musicals to classic theatres offerings like Arsenic and Old Lace and Nunsense – Grande Parlour is a thriving, growing, wondrous thing.
This summer Grande Parlour and Beantrees Cafe (owned by the same smart and artsy individual), hosted the first (of many – I hope!) Verge Arts Festival in Cold Lake. Just look at all the yummies!
I was thrilled to have my one-act play, STALLED, selected as part of six original productions to be featured during the festival. My show was directed by the uber talented Megan Bailey and performed by the marvellous Teresa Petit, Allison Vachon, and Matt Evans – locals all and so amazing.
I hope to have some still shots of the show to post shortly.
BUT THAT’S NOT ALL!
Grande Parlour is also doing a run of INHABITED, a full-length horror show I co-wrote with Teresa Petit and Julie Waage, for a whopping seven nights with the final curtain going up on, you guessed it, Halloween night! If you’re anywhere close by and can make it for one of the showings…you won’t regret purchasing tickets and making an overnight trip to the little arts town that could. Get your tickets here!
