Viewers will be able to catch the next production by the ECHO Players from the comfort of their own home.
The Qualicum Beach group will move from onstage to online for Karen Golden’s performance as Ann Landers in The Lady With All The Answers, by David Rambo.
The Lady with All the Answers offers the group a chance to pull an all-nighter with Ann Landers, circa 1975, as she composes “the most difficult column” of her career. She dispenses her trademark advice on a variety of things, even how to hang the toilet paper.
After a hiatus that lasted over a year, the Parksville Qualicum Beach’s community theatre troupe is proud to be back onstage in a whole new way, turning to a digital platform this May to present a stellar performance by one of the club’s seasoned actors.
“While it is our hope that we will be able to be back on stage in the fall for our 2021-22 season, we are delighted to be able to offer (Parksville Qualicum Beach) audiences an option for right now – to enjoy theatre in the comfort of their own homes,” said ECHO Players president, Alistair McVey, in a release . “Through the efforts of Kevan Hill-Tout and a group of savvy technically-minded ECHO members, we’ve been able to find a way to create excellent entertainment and bring it to the community in an online platform. It has required a tremendous amount of effort and adjustment for all involved, but the end result is one that is sure to be appreciated and applauded”.
The Lady With All The Answers will be available for streaming at 7:30 p.m on May 7, 8 and 9. Tickets can be purchased online starting April 14 at www.echoplayers.ca.
The digital production will be the first of its kind for the community theatre group, and will be performed and recorded at the Village Theatre while strictly adhering to all B.C. government-mandated COVID protocols.
