Breaking news: stage play coming in January

Slave Lake’s live theatre group is back in business and will present another play this coming January. It’s called ‘The Kitchen Witches,’ by Caroline Smith.

“It’s about two cable TV cook-hosts,” says Slave Lake Musical Theatre Association President Sean McConnell. “There’s quite the competition between them.”

McConnell says the play is fun and funny and involves audience participation (sampling food!). It’ll comprise 10 performances over a couple of weeks, starting Jan. 25 and running to Feb. 3, at the Legacy Centre in Slave Lake.

“Two matinees on the Saturdays,” he says.

Local playgoers will remember last year’s ‘100 Lunches,’ – the first-ever SLMTA production at the Legacy Centre. It went over very well and also – obviously – had a food theme. A coincidence? We’ll have to wait and see.

We’ll have to wait also for more details on the production, which McConnell promises to dole out over the next few weeks. But for now we know the two female leads are Jean Montgomery and Simone Crain (The latter a newcomer to the scene). They’ll be the kitchen witches. Playing their producer will be Corey Turner, with Jordan Nahamko returning to the stage as the cameraman. Dave Symington is back as director, with Gail Ungstad as producer.

In other SLMTA news, McConnell says, “We have some other plays on the go. We may even have another one this spring.”
