Bedtime Stories, written by Canadian playwright Norm Foster, is Season 50’s upcoming show at Lakeside Little Theatre. It is directed by Roseann Wilshere, along with
Assistant Director Arleen Pace.
Roseann has directed and acted in numerous shows at LLT, including last year’s The Heiress. She is also known and celebrated for her successful theatre workshops.
Here’s what Roseann has to say about Bedtime Stories:
“What goes on behind the bedroom door may not be anybody’s business, but it sure is fun to have a peek once in a while. Though the humor is off-the-wall, with sight gags galore, there's a serious undertone in Norm Foster's related series of witty vignettes. Foster neatly ties all six of his bedroom stories together, with both predictable and surprising links. Every one of the late-night encounters happens on the night of Tommy Quick's big concert. Each involves characters we can relate to in some serious way.
I hope our audience has as many laughs as we have had putting the show together.”
The cast includes, in order of appearance: Eddie “Nighthawk” Nichols, Ed Tasca; Betsy Ballantyne, Sandy, Kathleen Morris; Lou Ballantyne, Douglas Pinkerton; Derek, Charlie, Ken Yakiwchuk; Susan, Laura Nichols, Collette Clavadetscher; Nick, Steve, Michael Warren; Davey, Tommy, James Leonard; Melody Ballantyne, Tina Leonard; Jerry, Chet Beeswanger; Yolanda, Judy Long; and Stranger, Jayme Littlejohn.
