Local resident directs play in Abbotsford

Mission’s Carissa Boynton is directing Tuesdays With Morrie at the Gallery 7 Theatre in Abbotsford.

The show is now playing on Jan. 27-29 and from Feb. 3-5 at 7:30 p.m. A matinee performance is available on Jan. 29 at 2 p.m.

The play, written by Jeffrey Hatcher and Mitch Albom is based on Albom’s book Tuesdays With Morrie.

What begins as a simple reunion turns into a weekly pilgrimage and an advanced course in the meaning of life.

Based on true events, this story celebrates the power of friendship and honours those who have made a significant difference in our lives.

Janik Livera and Katherine McKellar are two other Mission residents working behind the scenes in the show.

Tickets for Tuesdays With Morrie are available at the House of James on Emerson Street in Abbotsford, or by calling 604-852-3701 or 1-800-665-8828. The performance venue is at the MEI Theatre at 4081 Clearkbrook Rd.
