Hey kids! Hope the weekend was good for you. Here’s another fantastic one-night only fundraiser event, and this one promises to be out of this world:
Play in a Pub: William Shakespeare’s Star Wars: Monday, October 28 at Whistler’s Grille. Driftwood Theatre Group presents a reading of Ian Doescher’s William Shakespeare’s Star Wars (Quirk Books) for this fundraiser for their 20th season of The Bard’s Bus Tour in 2014.
Driftwood has assembled an impressive cast for this unique theatre experience, including: RH Thomson (Obi Wan Kenobi), Oliver Dennis (C3P0), Michael Therriault (R2D2), Dion Johnstone (Han Solo), Michael Hanrahan (Darth Vader), Sarah Wilson (Princess Leia), Richard Alan Campbell (The Chorus), Peter van Gestel (Luke Skywalker), Karl Ang (Jabba the Hutt), Steven Gallagher (Governor Tarkin), Lori Nancy Kalamanski (Chewbacca), Helen King (Greedo), Andy Pogson (Wedge Antilles) and Steven Burley (music and sound effects).
But wait – there’s more! There will be a live auction and a silent auction – plus the opportunity for cosplay to win a prize! Here are the details from Driftwood’s press release: Audience members will be able to get in on the action through a Live Auction offering three walk-on roles as rebels, imperials or interesting creatures. The event will also feature a Mini Silent Auction (featuring 10 boutique packages handpicked by Driftwood Theatre’s board of directors), a Getaway Raffle (win a trip for two to Montreal for some great food, entertainment and luxurious hotel stay) and Best Costume Prize (come as your favourite Star Wars character and you could win BIG).
The action starts at 6:30-8:00 p.m. with the silent auction, with the performance at 8 p.m. Tickets $25 (limited seating).
