Rehearsals and set construction are well underway for the 2019 edition of the Castor Little Theatre production.
This year’s presentation will be the Samuel French licensed farce entitled Jack of Diamonds written by Marcia Kash and Douglas E. Hughes. Jack of Diamonds will be the thirty-seventh play that Castor Little Theatre has produced since its inception in 1983.
Jack of Diamonds is a two-act play centred around a high-class old age home, where the seniors have recently discovered that they have lost all their money through a scam. When the scammer ends up in the home and is recognized by his victims, hijinks ensue as the seniors try to exact their revenge.
The cast and crew of this year’s production are a mix of seasoned performers who have been part of Castor Little Theater for years and several new performers marking their entrance into amateur theatre. The production is being co-directed by Rob Nichols and Marilyn Weber.
Castor Little Theatre is a registered non-profit society that has put money into the community. It sponsors art programs for local youth, puts money into decreasing the debt owed on the hall, hall upgrades, supports local businesses through locally sourced catering, alcohol, and set construction supplies, as well as donating to a variety of youth programs in town.
Jack of Diamonds premiers with a Sunday brunch show on Feb. 17,] and runs Tuesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday until March 2 for a total run of eight shows. Tickets are available by contacting Don Sisson at 403-323-0359.
