Cemetery Club dead serious about production

  • Print

Immanuel United Church is embracing some dark humour for its upcoming dessert theatre.

The church, located at 755 Golspie Ave., is putting on The Cemetery Club by Ivan Menchell from April 25 through 27. The story follows three women who are coping after losing their husbands.

"It’s a strange thing to have a comedy around, but dramatic-wise, it helps to bring the audience to a laughter state to take them to another emotional state," said director Jim Goldrup, who teaches theatre technology at Tec Voc High School. "Here at Immanuel Players, we like to play to the comedy side of things.

"We try to have some type of human emotion, something that people go through, something for people in the community that happens to all of us, and how that relates to our lives."

Cast members have been rehearsing since early February, and Goldrup said the hard work has been paying off, as the performers have been able to find the depth in each of their characters.

The show runs about two hours with an intermission, and a spread of homemade desserts will be served after the curtain drops.

"There’s dessert after, and it’s good community," he said. "The actors come around and talk to everybody. You get that closeness of community that happens."

Tickets for the show are $12 and can be purchased by emailing iuchurch@mymts.net or calling 204-669-0220.
