Opening Nite brings Dearly Departed

The southern comedy runs from mid-October until early November

Opening Nite Theatre Society brings the southern comedy Dearly Departed by Jessie Jones and David Bottrell to stage this month as the first show in its 2013/2014 season.

Directed by Dudley Cox, this is the hilarious yet poignant tale of a southern family who have to come to grips with the sudden death of their patriarch, Bud Turpin.

Remembered fondly by some, and not-so-fondly by others, Bud leaves behind a family wrestling with guilt, anger, turmoil and dissatisfaction.

Dearly Departed runs Oct. 18-20, 24-27 and Nov. 1-3. Thursday, Friday and Saturday performances are at 8 p.m. and Sunday matinees at 2 p.m. Tickets are $15, and available online at openingnitetheatresociety.tripod.com, at 604-826-ONTS (6687) or at the door. Opening Nite Theatre is at 33223-33227 North Railway Ave. in Mission, across from the WestCoast Express Station.
