The Murrayville Performers announce the opening of their third full length production, “Dirty Work at the Crossroads” or Tempted, Tried and True, written by Bill Johnson and directed by Surrey’s Lorne Seifred.
This is a Gay Nineties Melodrama in three acts that will make you laugh, weep and say “Boo” “Yeah” “Oh No” just like in the old days of theatre. It will be a fun evening with a cast of characters who will entertain you. You even get peanuts to throw at the villain – instructions on throwing methods will be given at the beginning of the show.
They have a great cast who have worked very hard to bring the characters to life. Jessica Bruhn stars as “Nellie”, Kyler Banks as “Adam Oakhart”, Carla St. Pierre as “the Widow Lovelace”, Ron Horvat as “Munro Murgatroyd”, Jessica Bouchard as “Ida Rhinegold”, Lorne Seifred as “Mookie Maguggins”, Cindy Weitzel as “Mrs. Upson Asterbilt”, Kaiya Shayne Horvat as “Leonie”, French Maid “Fleurette” and Maeggan Palliyaguru as “Little Nell”. They also have two wonderful pianists to round out the cast, Samantha and Jasmine Lee.
The show takes place at Langley United Church, 5673 – 200 Street, on Friday, June 3, Saturday, June 4, Friday, June 10 and Saturday, June 11. Also possible is a matinee Sunday, with date to be confirmed. Doors open at 7 p.m. and curtain is at 8 p.m.
