21st year of UdderFest just one week away at Prince Rupert's Tom Rooney Playhouse

Third Avenue West's Tom Rooney Playhouse is the destination
next week for the launch of the 21st year for
Prince Rupert's Udderfest

Prince Rupert's annual celebration of theatre is almost set for its Mid-August run with the final few details for UdderFest 2019 now in motion, with the curtain raising set for August 14th.

In July we noted that the opening night will be hosted by the Lester Centre of the Arts, with Scalawag, a Smithers born multi instrumentalist providing for the first of the four nights of Udderfest with showtime set for 7:30.

Through an information release today, Harbour Theatres's Krista Edgier takes us through the seven other productions that are ready for their debut starting August 15th

This year’s line-up includes the return of festival favourites such as Hook Line & Snicker Improv, Bad Things (Cruise Ship Edition!), and the War of Wits comedy debate show. 

A number of new productions are also taking the stage at this year’s Udderfest. 

Local icons Lyle McNish and Rob Shearer return to produce Green Apple Mysteries, a Doug Kydd Sunset Players production. Talented improvisers Erik Langille and Michael Gurney are teaming up for High Steaks, an outrageous impromptu play shaped by audience suggestions. 

In her directorial debut, co-chair of Udderfest Krista Ediger unites alumni of the Lester Centre’s production of Rumors for a high-flying look at the Sex Lives of Superheroes. 

Younger stars will also be appearing as part of the annual Kids Camp show. Level Up Lollipop, written and directed by Treena Decker and camp assistants Kaedyn Bond and Jordan Jackson, brings dozens of children to the stage for a topsy-turvy video game-inspired adventure.

Tickets for $10 per event are available at the Door of the Tom Rooney Playhouse on Show nights, while a Festival Pass for Thirty dollars which gain entry to four shows on the Festival playbill, they are available at both the Tom Rooney and at Homeworks in the Atlin Terminal.

You can find more information on this years event from the Harbour Theatre Facebook page or from the Harbour Theatre website.
