Suds: The Rocking 60's Musical Soap Opera
Portal Players Dramatic Society's 2012 musical production of "Suds: the Rocking 60's Musical Soap Opera" opens on Friday, February 24. Portal Players is excited to present their first musical in the new-to-the-Capitol seats!
Director Blaine Ronning and Musical Director Sandy Bouleau have pulled together a strong cast of diverse local musical talents in the cast and in the band. Alberni Valley audiences can look forward to seeing Lisa Fryer as Cindy, the young ingénue whose job at a 1960's Laundromat becomes decidedly more interesting and musical when she is visited by her guardian angels Marge (Janet Deakin) and Dee Dee (Yvette Deveau) on a particularly difficult day. Chris Arthurs provides comic intervention as a number of characters (Mr. Postman, a washer repair man, and a Mystery Date) who pass by the hilarious proceedings, while Brent Ronning enters the scene to sing along with the ladies as Mr. Right and Johnny Angel. The show features classic songs like "Please Mr. Postman", "You Can't Hurry Love", a medley of Burt Bacharach tunes, "Respect", "Our Day Will Come", "I Say a Little Prayer", "Secret Agent Man", "I Will Follow Him", and "I Know a Place" among many others woven into the story.
The band features Sandy Bouleau on keyboard, Dennis Olsen on guitar, Scott Jarvis on bass, James Van Metre on drums, and Kayla Burton on wind instruments.
The show runs over four weekends on Friday and Saturday nights at the Capitol Theatre, from February 24 until March 17. All seats are $20 in advance, and if there are any tickets left on performance nights all seats will be $25 at the door.
