Prime Stock Theatre marks 20th anniversary with cabaret

Prime Stock Theatre is celebrating 20 years of theatre by launching the ‘Prime Stock Cabaret – the Suite Life’ (a musical revue).

Performances run at the Scott Block Theatre downtown, with preview night tickets $20 on Aug. 20th at 7:30 p.m. Performances tickets are $25 each for Aug. 21st at 7:30 p.m., Aug. 22nd at 7:30 p.m. and 10 p.m. and Aug. 23rd at 7:30 p.m. Organizers hope to see the event become an annual fundraiser for the Society.

A cabaret, in this sense, is a collection of song and dance numbers from musical theatre shows and popular music, in a setting where people can enjoy a drink with friends and an unapologetically fun evening in the theatre, organizers say. The songs can be strung together with a theme – which this year will be urban living: The Suite Life.

Prime Stock Theatre Co. Society is a professional live theatre society based in Red Deer and serving the Central Alberta region.

They strive to work in concert with local and regional educational institutions and other cultural organizations in providing quality theatrical experiences. The goal is also to have graduates of local high school drama departments and the Red Deer College performance and live production programs to have work available to them in Red Deer – and not all have to continually move to larger cities to pursue them.

Meanwhile, The Suite Life is being directed by Lynda Adams with musical direction by Morgan McKee and choreography by Elisa Nixon. The production has been designed by Patrick Beagan and it’s being stage managed by Marnie Rath. The cast includes Chantel Huchison, Andres Moreno, Dan Vasquez, Nevada Banks and Jennifer Engler with special guests each evening.

There will be a cash bar and the performances contain mature content.
