The Valentine fun continues at the Village Playhouse, at their annual Sweets & Treats show. I got the scoop from Alum Marketing/Publicity Director Tina McCulloch (who’s acting in one of the plays this year). Three short plays, all comedies, and for the price of a $15 ticket, audiences will be entertained and fed something sweet! This year’s program includes:
Ashes to Ashes, by Alumnae member Marianne Fedunkiw (previously produced at New Ideas 2010), directed for the Village with a new cast by Maureen Callaghan (who directed it in New Ideas), and featuring frequent Alumnae actor Steven Burley, who Maureen knows from when she was AD on Pride & Prejudice a couple years ago.
Steven also appears in Alum member Rosemary Doyle’s play A Family Well Knit (which previously appeared at Alumnae in Write Now!, I think) and is directed by Alumnae member Anne Harper, who originally appeared in the staged reading.
And last but not least, Tina McCulloch (who was also co-producer for After Magritte and The Real Inspector Hound) is in How to Hunt a Woolly Mammoth – a Toronto premiere – by Lynda Martens and directed by Valary Cook, a frequent director in New Ideas (she’s directing a play in NIF this year as well).
