Aunt Martha’s Funeral at St. Dunstan’s

Gilbert & Sullivan Society brings Aunt Martha's Funeral to St. Dunstan's Church hall on April 13.

The Fraser Valley Gilbert & Sullivan Society will present Aunt Martha’s Funeral on April 13 at St. Dunstan’s Anglican Church in Aldergrove.

The Fraser Valley Gilbert and Sullivan Society has spent the last 30 years bringing musical theatre to the Lower Mainland of British Columbia. The G&S, as it has become known, is a stalwart of high quality amateur theatre. The productions, whether light opera, English pantomime or Broadway musical, are hilarious, fast-paced fun. They’re almost as enjoyable to watch as they are to perform.

Join with the family and other mourners on Saturday, April 13 to honour the amazing life of Aunt Martha. Her family, played by members of the G&S, are united out of respect, greed, habit, shared trauma, but mostly greed. Martha’s jealous sister harbors a long-hidden grudge, which her husband, the stockbroker turned poet, can’t relate to. Martha’s nieces and nephew have almost come to terms with their experiences spending summers with her. And Martha’s live-in “physical trainer” has his eye on the deed to the house.

The other mourners, played by the audience, will watch as the tangled web of deceit and misunderstanding is unraveled in the church and at the reception.

Tickets are $20 per adult and $10 child/adolescent and can be purchased at St. Dunstan’s office, Mondays to Fridays from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., call 604-856-5393, or at the door on April 13.

Doors open at 6:15 p.m. and Aunt Martha’s Funeral begins at 7 p.m. at St. Dunstan’s Anglican Church, 3025 – 264 Street, Aldergrove.

As part of St. Dunstan’s work in the community 50 per cent of the proceeds will go towards their mission and ministry “Garden to Table” program in Aldergrove. Come, have fun and support the community.
