A Mission performer will be acting in an online play next week, which is being put out by community theatre in Langley.
Julie Waage, a veteran of Theatre in the Country, will act in “The Man Who Came to Dinner.” The play was originally written in 1939 for Broadway, and will be one of the largest online shows the theatre company of 100 have ever put on.
“While on a speaking tour in Ohio, opinionated and arrogant radio personality Sheridan Whiteside injures himself slipping on ice and becomes an unexpected houseguest for a prominent area family, the Stanleys. Whiteside proceeds to make brash proclamations, threats of lawsuits, and offer his unsolicited advice to the family members. Most recently Nathan Lane brought this great 30’s script back to Broadway,” says the plays synopsis.
Waage, who also heads up the prop department, will joined by fellow actors Robbie Burns, Claire deBruyn, Kathleen Driscoll, Elliot Figueira, Max Holmes, Joan Koebel, Aislynn Mede, Wayne Nolan, Kapila Rego, Thomas Reynolds, Pavia Sidhu, Thomas Smith, George Stone and Cher Zorilla.
The play runs on Feb. 5 and 6, and is being hosted on Zoom. Tickets can be purchased theatreinthecountry.com or by calling the box office at 604-259-9737. Zoom links will be sent out on at 5:30 p.m. on the night of play.
