Cape Breton University’s Boardmore Theatre is set to launch its 49th Season of Plays with an exciting line-up. Hosting four main stage productions and three theatre festivals, there’s something for everyone.
“Our line-up of plays covers a range of theatrical styles, including a new stage version that restores the suspense and seduction of Bram Stoker’s classic story Dracula; Sheldon Currie’s Lauchie, Liza and Rory, a Cape Breton comedy of unrequited love is played by two actors switching characters at a fast pace playing parents, siblings, children, priests and nuns. This production weaves the tale of a warm and tightly-knit family coming to terms with the meaning of love and loyalty,” says Artistic Director of the Boardmore, Todd Hiscock. “Charlie Rhindress’ dark comedy, Maritime Way of Life, is an hilariously satirical take on traditional East Coast lifestyles and personalities. Nominated for Best New Play at the 2000 Canadian Comedy Awards, this story is the other side of The Glace Bay Miners’ Museum. The Neverending Story is a beautiful tale of the trials of childhood and the triumph of creativity that will delight and inspire the whole family.”
