Swan song for stage actress

Campbell River's Lorna Pennock will be reading for 'Driving Miss Daisy' in her final performance

Swan song by definition is a person’s farewell performance or final statement, composition or painting.

Anne Young and Antics Theatre will be producing a Theatrical Reading of “Driving Miss Daisy” by Alfred Uhry at the Maritime Heritage Centre, Aug. 1-2.

This theatrical reading marks the occasion of Lorna Pennock’s swan song.

Pennock made her stage debut 25 years ago in a play produced by Rivercity Players called “Circus in the Wind” which Anne Young had the pleasure of directing and it was performed at the Tidemark Theatre.

Pennock has never looked back. Her list of plays she performed in are numerous.

Over the last 12 years with Antics Theatre, she has performed in a number of plays, but the last few years, because of mobility issues, she has been entertaining audiences with her varied readings at the dinner theatre shows.

The audience will tell you she has impeccable comic timing.

Pennock never did a reading at our last show “Opening Night” as her stamina was down. She thought maybe her next performance could be her swan song.

Driving Miss Daisy was a play Pennock and Young had discussed, but it never was performed. So it was decided that Driving Miss Daisy would be a perfect piece to do as a reading.

Tickets are $20 available at the Flower Shop In Willow Point.
