The path to the stage of the Lester Centre tonight began just after the start of school in September for the cast, crew, musicians and production team for 'Something Rotten' the project that was taken on by students of Alison O'Toole, the latest edition of an annual Prince Rupert holiday season tradition.
It's been a busy month since we last took a look at the then still in development work.
The days of rehearsals, set building, costume designing, fittings and all of the behind the scenes activities that take them to show time now behind them, just a few hours left now before the curtain goes up on Opening night, the start of the three night run for the eclectic look at the world of Shakespeare.
The weekend of performances arriving as part of Prince Rupert's Winterfest, with the Charles Hays students setting the pace for the weekend of fun ahead for the community. The collective ready to show their acting and musical skills to the level that audiences have come to expect from a CHSS Production.
Earlier this month, Ms. O'Toole, let curious theatre goers in on their progress with some snapshots of the preparations with just a few weeks to go.
Opening night curtain rises tonight at 7:30 PM, shows follow at the same start time on Friday night and the cast, musicians and crew bid farewell to their audience on Saturday night when the three nights come to a close.
Ticket information on all three nights can be accessed through the Lester Centre website.
