The White Rock Players’ Club is pleased to announce their next production, Don’t Dress for Dinner, written by Marc Camoletti (the writer of Boeing Boeing) and translated by Robin Hawdon, running February 9 through 24 (with previews February 7 & 8) at the Coast Capital Playhouse – 1532 Johnston Road, White Rock.
The action takes place in the French countryside in the early 1980s. Bernard (Tomas Gamba) is hurrying his wife Jacqueline (Lori Tych, frequently seen in shows by Peninsula Productions and WRPC) off to see her mother. He has arranged for his girlfriend (Rebecca Sutherland, who comes to us via Surrey Little theatre) to stay the weekend, with his old friend Robert (Dann Wilhelm) joining them as his alibi. But plans change when the cook Bernard has hired (Jenn Lane) is mistaken for his girlfriend… and the girlfriend has to become a cook... and all this confuses no one more than George (newcomer to the White Rock stage, Greg Tunner).
Dann, Thomas and Jenn all performed together in our 2016 production of Private Lives.
Don’t Dress For Dinner is directed by Julianne Christie in her first show at the Coast Capital Theatre. Julianne is an instructor at The Drama Class in White Rock and is a working actor in Hollywood, California and Hollywood North, British Columbia.
