The Rivercity Players’ production of Veronica’s Room is thrilling audiences at the Tidemark Theatre.
Several accolades were sent to the cast and crew through the Rivercity Players website after last Thursday’s opening night.
Some of the comments included: “Thoroughly enjoyed the performance, thought set/costumes/lighting/etc. were great and the four actors so suitable for their roles.” and “An exceptional performance. Please tell ALL your members how good they and the production is/are.”
Other comments included “Good story. Good acting. Good set.” and “You acted with such depth! Your creepy/moody/euphoric performance was wonderful! Well done,” and yet another impressed patron even called for the Rivercity Players to receive an award for its spectacular performance.
In Veronica’s Room, a thriller written by Ira Levin in 1973, performers Tim Myerscough and Heidi Ridgway are transformed by the talented makeup stylings of Michele Nylander and her assistant Narinder Sandhu into the seemingly lovable couple of John and Maureen Mackey.
The older couple convince the young couple, played by actors David Tayler and Jana MacFarlane, to come back to see a photo of a dead girl,Veronica, who they knew and think the young girl (MacFarlane) looks like.
After the young couple accepts the invitation, they become trapped in an unexpected situation that leads to a dramatic ending.
If you missed out on opening night, you can still catch the Rivercity Players this weekend at the Tidemark Theatre.
Veronica’s Room runs for three more nights on Thurs., May 19, Fri., May 20 and Sat., May 21 before the Rivercity Players travel to Port Alberni on May 27 for the Theatre BC North Island Festival.
A win of Best Play would then send the Rivercity Players to Kamloops for a chance at the Provincial Top Honours at Mainstage.
Don’t miss out on a chance to see this great play for yourself.
