I had the privilege of sitting in on last night’s dress rehearsal for Gibson & Sons.
So many reasons to see this show.
It’s heartwarming and funny and brilliantly directed, and the cast is one of the strongest I’ve ever seen and is stacked with talent from top to bottom including:
- Thea Award Nominee (Best Lead Actress- Comedy)- Esther Chung
- Thea Award Winner (Best Supporting Actress- Comedy)- Gillian Taggart
- Thea Award Winner and Stage West Pechet Family Comedy Award Winner (Best Supporting Actress- Comedy & notable playwright)- Kristen Horner Da Silva
- Thea Award Winner (Best Ensemble- Comedy)- Mark Davies
- Multi-talented and exceptional Michael Anania, Scott Sykes and Arleigh Curran
- Take part in the 50/50 draw
- Leave your name and e-mail address and win a custom made Arbor (handcrafted by Decks By Dave) after the show’s run has ended.
- Treat Mom to a show and dinner, the day before Mother’s Day (Matinee, Saturday May 13, 2017) and try to repay her for the 27 hours of labour she endured to squeeze your wretched body into this world
GIBSON & SONS opens tonight and runs through to May 13, 2017.
ABOUT THE MILTON PLAYERS THEATRE GROUP:
Milton Players Theatre Group (MPTG) was formed in the Spring of 1979 by 14 enthusiastic people, responding to an ad in the local newspaper. In November of the same year, “Goodnight, Mrs. Puffin,” the first MPTG production, appeared on stage. Over the years, the Milton Players Theatre Group has performed in various locations around Milton including E.C. Drury Secondary School, the Halton Centennial Manor, the Optimist Club, St. Paul’s United Church, the Roxy Theatre, the Masonic Temple on Hwy 25, the Milton Senior’s Center and currently at the beautiful Milton Centre for the Arts where we are performing 3 shows per season, each consisting of 6 performances. The Milton Players Theatre Group is run by a very dedicated membership base, all of which are volunteering their time to produce great quality theatre for the Milton community and surrounding areas. And we are always looking for theatre minded people to join our group. If you are interested in learning more about the Milton Players Theatre Group you can reach us at email@example.com.
