Alberni players get ready for Suds

Tickets are on sale now for Suds: the Rocking ‘60s Musical Soap Opera, which is coming to Alberni's Capitol Theatre on Feb. 24.

Members of the Portal Players Dramatic Society have been hard at work rehearsing for Suds: the Rocking ‘60s Musical Soap Opera, coming to the Capitol Theatre in February.

Tickets are on sale now for this latest production, which opens Feb. 24. This will be the first musical where patrons can sit in the new-to-the-Capitol seats, president Brent Ronning said.

Director Blaine Ronning and musical director Sandy Bouleau have pulled together a strong cast of diverse musical talents in both the cast and the band.

Alberni Valley audiences can look forward to seeing Lisa Fryer as Cindy, the young ingénue whose job at a 1960s laundromat becomes decidedly more interesting and musical when she is visited by her guardian angels Marge (Janet Deakin) and Dee Dee (Yvette Deveau) on a particularly difficult day.

The show runs over four weekends on Friday and Saturday nights at the Capitol Theatre, from Feb. 24 until March 17.

Tickets are available online at www.atthecapitol.org.
