‘Centre Stage Players’ take five medals

Langley’s Centre Stage Players were in the medals in the One-Act Play competition on Friday at the B.C. Seniors’ Games

Langley’s Centre Stage Players were in the medals in the One-Act Play competition on Friday at the B.C. Seniors’ Games in Richmond. Centre Stage took medals in all five categories, from bronze to gold.

The play, “Love, Lies and In-Betweens” was written by local playwright, singer, songwriter, actor and director Ron May, and won a silver medal in the Best Production category. Cast members, Bev Pride, Dave Williams, Beebe Fleming, Dan Tribe and Diane Gendron were delighted with the award.

Ron May also won a silver medal for Best Original Script.

The director, Ron May, and assistant directors, Rae Purcell, Diane Giesbrecht, Mary Renvall and Raymond Hatton won a bronze medal for their direction of this zany play.

Two of the actors also won medals for their performances in Love, Lies and In-Betweens: Diane Gendron won the gold medal for her portrayal as the chatty, busybody neighbour, Clara, and Dan Tribe won a bronze medal as the slightly loony character, Ted, who was “lost in the movies.”

Gendron said of her win, “There were 17 other actresses in the competition so winning the gold was an exciting honour.”

The adjudicator in the competition, Mike Stack, commented that, “It was a very clever script, a fun play.”

Langley audiences had the opportunity to see Love, Lies and In-Betweens when it was performed at the Langley Seniors’ Centre earlier in August.
