“ACT’S ‘DEARLY DEPARTED’ ONE OF TOP 3 PLAYS FOR ATTENDANCE”
(Information supplied by Ron Sawyer, Artistic Director for the Aylmer Community Theatre)
The response for “Dearly Departed”, both critically and in attendance, was tremendous. Reviews were consistently good and we averaged over 110 patrons per show, which is certainly among our top three productions. Judging by the laughter, which often required long pauses in the action, the audience had a great time. So did the actors. We have such fun playing to a really lively audience.
Our next production in our “Season of Death” is “Murdered to Death” by Peter Gordon. It’s a parody of all those Agatha Christie manor house murder mysteries with a doddering butler, snooty retired colonel and a bumbling police detective. It’ll be a hoot!
