The Williams Lake Studio Theatre Society announces three plays for the coming live theatre season in Williams Lake.

Office Hours

Office Hours, directed by the team of Mary-Jo Hilyer and Micheal Hodgson, is a series of one-act plays written by Canadian playwright Norm Foster.

What does an overweight jockey, a desperate movie producer, a gay entertainment lawyer, a philandering agent and a Week-at-a-Glance salesman have in common?

Ordinarily not a whole lot, but then again Norman Foster’s Office Hours is no ordinary play. Foster is one of Canada’s most popular playwrights and Office Hours is one of his funniest plays.

Filled with snappy dialogue, witty repartee, hilarious predicaments, and lots of laughs, Office Hours runs Nov. 16 to 19 and 23 to 26.




The Clumsy

Custard Horror Show and

The Ice Cream Clone Review

The Clumsy Custard Horror Show and The Ice Cream Clone Review hits the stage at the end of February and the beginning of March 2012.

The Clumsy Custard Horror Show and The Ice Cream Clone Review will be directed by Sandi Alaric.

In this hilarious comedy by William Gleason, King Dumb is ready for his daughter to select a husband and all the Knights of the Realm are anxious to claim her hand.

But the sweet Princess Prince has fallen for a gentle yet courageous lad she assumes to be a pauper.

Not so!

Little does she know that this scruffy stranger is Swashbuck Valpariso, bearer of the magic sword and Master of Fast Feet.

With audience participation throughout, the play will leave you breathless with anticipation, reckless with abandon and proud to be a Zobian.




Seven Stories

Seven Stories, directed by Colleen Crossley, will have its run in April 2012 and will also be the Studio Theatre’s entry in the Central Interior Zone of Theatre BC Festival.

Everyman undergoing an existential crisis climbs to a seventh floor ledge and contemplates jumping.

But before he can make up his mind, venetian blinds begin opening onto seven different apartments, revealing the lives and characters within, and the Man is drawn into their dramas and absurdities.

Though he knows no one in the building, he’s given a drink and a cigarette, hectored, befriended, philosophized at, and accused of all kinds of complicities. Before you know it, nearly an hour and a half has gone by and our anti-hero is still perched on the ledge.
