For the Advance

Rehearsals for Castor Little Theatre’s 2020 performance are well under way.

Under the helm of long-time theatre supporter, actor, and director Don Sisson, the 2020 edition of the theatre will be performing the play Dry Streak by Leeann Minogue.

In Dry Streak, rural Saskatchewan in the 1980s is facing a severe heat wave when a son returns to the family farm with his new girlfriend.

As the heat continues unbearably, so do tempers, with the son’s girlfriend getting frustrated and making a surprising promise with humorous results.

Over two acts, the story goes through themes of drama, family, Mother Nature, and a good dose of humour.

This is the 38th edition of Castor Little Theatre and will feature a variety of veteran thespians as well as some newcomers.

The show will debut on Feb. 23rd with a brunch show, with another brunch the following week on March 1st.

A teen night will be held on Feb. 25th with a general performance one week later on March 3rd.

Dinner theatre performances will be held Feb. 28th, 29th, March 6th and 7th.

Tickets for the show go on sale Feb. 17th at 7 p.m. at the Castor Community Hall. If you can’t make that work, contact Don Sisson at 403-323-0359 for tickets.

Castor Little Theatre is a registered non-profit society that puts money back into the community through sponsoring a variety of art programs for local youth, putting money towards paying off the community hall as well as investing in hall upgrades.

It also supports local businesses through locally-sourced catering, alcohol, and set construction supplies. Every year Castor Little Theatre donates to a variety of youth programs in the community as well.
