Opening Night

A Comedy by Norm Foster

5.0 rating
5 out of 5 stars (based on 13 reviews)

The madcap antics start as Jack and Ruth Tisdale celebrate their twenty-fifth wedding anniversary with an evening at the theatre. It's a dream come true for Ruth and an imposition for Jack who would rather be at home watching the World Series. However, after the events both on and off the stage that fateful night, their lives and those of all of those involved are irreparably altered.

Another great production

I went to this play last night and the actors did a marvelous job of entertaining us. They all did a wonderful job of performing but I would like to give a special shout out to Greg George. He did a tremendous job of playing a washed up drunken actor. Nice to see some younger people involved as well. Another great production in St. Marys.

Great play and had lots of humour

My husband and I went to the show last night. It was a great play and had lots of humour. We could see how much thought work and energy was put into this play. We are definitely glad we went. The actors and actresses were amazing.
Thank you.

Just what the doctor prescribed!

Enjoyed the show this afternoon. Could relate to so many of the issues that the actors and actresses raised and their solutions too. Laughter, good friends and a day out. Just what the doctor prescribed!

A Fun and funny play

We bought tickets at the last minute, and we’re sure glad we did! The show was funny and the cast sure knew how to deliver their lines for the biggest laughs. Every cast member shone, especially the one playing Ruth. They were excellent. The Theatre itself is lovely and quite historic. I would highly recommend catching this show before it’s over. And with this caliber of actors, I’m sure all of the shows they out on are great! It was our first time at this theatre, but it won’t be our last!

I would have hated missing this one!

From start to finish, this Comedy had us entertained! The characters were fresh yet relatable and spot on with their wit and delivery (both verbally and physically). The storyline moved at a pleasant pace, always so much to capture and absorb throughout. The set design beautiful yet, cleverly functional and brilliant! The lighting, the sound, everything… WOW- couldn’t have been any better! We were impressed throughout the whole show by various aspects and plan on seeing this one again before it’s too late!! We needed to see this, and needed to laugh as much as we had at this past Sunday’s matinee. Thank you. Thank you for ALL of your hard work, for everyone who contributed to this production and for your dedication preparing this show especially for our community (and for several of those amongst our audience who drove from hours away to join in on this fun) Much appreciated! 5 Stars! Keep up the great work.

A brilliant production by SMCP. This comedy kept our group laughing throughout the show. Great acting, well thought out set and costumes that suited the occasions. Thank you SMCP for a fantastic afternoon of comedy.
