The St. Jacobs Country Playhouse continues its 2012 Season with Norm Foster's sleeper hit comedy, Bedtime Stories.
There is a lot happening between the sheets in this intricately balanced story about the lives, loves, and challenges faced by fifteen everyday people including a former radio announcer, a shy middle-aged couple, a rock star who's not getting any younger, a hopelessly inept dancer, a man who meets-up with his high school crush, and a pair of bungling thieves. They are all searching for love and understanding in their divergent life journeys in this innovative look at six very funny – and very different – bedroom scenes.
"This sharply written productionis really six comedies in one," says Alex Mustakas, Artistic Director of Drayton Entertainment. "Audiences will enjoy seeing how these seemingly different stories ultimately converge to tell a universal tale of life and love."
Chris McHarge is the Director of this comedic gem. A well-known figure in Canadian theatre, McHarge has directed over 60 productions including the world premiere of Norm Foster's musical Sitting Pretty.
In addition to McHarge, the creative team includes Set and Lighting Designer Stephen Degenstein, and Costume Designer Nicole Del Cul.
A top notch cast has been assembled for this winning comedy, comprised of Brad Austin, Terry Barna, Karen Coughlin, Alison Lawrence,and Ralph Small. Each performer tackles multiple roles in this unique look at the relationships that bind all of us together.
