Seacoast Theatre’s ‘Ten Lost Years’ the finale of Evergreen’s Expanded Theatre Series 2011/1212

COQUITLAM, May 4, 2011 – The Evergreen Cultural Centre is delighted to announce the Theatre Series for its upcoming 2011/2012 Season, a full menu of six professional and uniquely diverse theatre productions that will appeal to both the experienced and novice theatre patron. The exciting lineup includes a World Premiere, a Canadian classic, a British farce and three solid Arts Club Theatre Company productions.

Evergreen opens its season, Sept 20 – 24, with the hilarious British comedy, A Bedfull of Foreigners from the Royal Canadian Theatre Company who brought last year’s hit, No Sex Please, We’re British. This is fun theatre filled with flagrant innuendoes and witty puns typical of British humour.

The first Arts Club show is the megahit Buddy: The Buddy Holly Story, Oct 29 – Nov 4, with the talented Zachary Stevenson reprising his role as the musical legend. The Buddy Holly Story highlights the talent and passion that lives on in his music and continues to thrill audiences long after they dance out of the theatre!

In the New Year, Evergreen presents Don Quixote Jan 31 – Feb 4, a production by three leading theatre companies: Arts Club Theatre Company, Centaur Theatre Company of Montreal and Axis Theatre Company. This epic comedy is re-imagined with mask, magic and mayhem.

Evergreen is thrilled to include a new work in its Series by a young up and coming American playwright who has been receiving critical praise. Circle Mirror Transformation by Annie Baker runs March 6 – 10 and is an original and quirky comedy of secrets with life changing results.

Evergreen’s fifth presentation, Confessions of the Other Woman is by local playwright Valerie Sing Turner, winner of the 2011 Enbridge playRites Award for Emerging Canadian Playwright. It is a beautifully crafted story that explores the themes of hope and loss, passion and compassion – an ode to love that is wholly relatable. It runs March 13 – 17.

The Theatre Series ends April 17 – 21 with a Canadian classic, Ten Lost Years, a drama (with music) based on oral historian Barry Broadfoot’s best-selling book, Ten Lost Years: Stories Of Canadians Who Survived The Depression.
