Year-Long Drama – Upcoming Play
The Year-Long Drama production of THE DINING ROOM is running from May 16-19 and 23-26 nightly at 7:30pm in the Ridge Playhouse.  This play features 58 characters and 17 scenes, all taking place in one dining room. Some scenes are funny, some poignant. It is a study on the various purposes that dining rooms have had in our lives, but seem to be having less of, as society seems to get busier and busier.  Tickets are $7.50 at the door. The play is approximately 2 hours long, and includes an intermission.  For more info: cplant@sd63.bc.ca
