Innisfail Town Theatre presents ‘The Foursome’

Folks with Innisfail Town Theatre are putting the finishing touches on their latest production The Foursome, penned by acclaimed Canadian playwright Norm Foster.

Performances run April 21, 28 and May 5 at the The Ol’ Moose Hall (5103 – 49th St.) with doors opening at 6 p.m. and curtain at 7 p.m.

There are also dinner theatre shows April 22-23, 29-30 and May 6-7. Doors open at 6 p.m. with dinner at 6:15 p.m. and curtain at 8 p.m.

Written in 1998, The Foursome follows four old college chums, home for their 15-year reunion.

The guys hook up for a round of golf and share their successes and failures. It’s a warm, funny play which takes place entirely on the 18 tees of a golf course. Starring in ITT’s rendition of the Canadian classic are Glen Carritt, Dave Kinsella, Jim Stenhouse and Mark Kemball.

After a lengthy stint working in radio, it was in 1980 that Norm Foster was introduced to the world of theatre. His first professionally produced play Sinners was produced by Theatre New Brunswick and was staged by Red Deer’s Central Alberta Theatre a few years back.

Next up was The Melville Boys, which would go on to be produced across Canada and the U.S. and even notched a run off-Broadway.

Foster has written nearly 40 plays altogether.

Innisfail Town Theatre, which has been in operation for more than 25 years, aims to present at least two dinner theatre shows per season. They are also always on the lookout for new members. Meetings run the second Tuesday of the month at the Ol’ Moose Hall at 8 p.m.

Meanwhile, tickets for The Foursome are available at The Legman on Main Street. Call 403-227-5966 for more information.
