Harbour Theatre takes on Prince Rupert’s mayoral race

Right in time for election season, Harbour Theater presents “So You Wanna Be Mayor?” on Friday, November 18 at 8 p.m.

Right in time for election season, Harbour Theater presents “So You Wanna Be Mayor?” on Friday, November 18 at 8 p.m. at the Tom Rooney Playhouse, where mock-candidates will run for the position of mayor, competing for all of the glory and none of the responsibility.

Lyle McNish, Rudy Kelly, George Baker, Ryan Carroll, Ted Keehn, Carolina De Ryk, Hondo Arendt, Treena Decker, and Joe Gaber will all taking on new personas as fake candidates in the run, discussing the important changes they intend to

make.

“People can expect promises that will never be kept because these candidates have no intentions of keeping them after the show ends,” said Chris Armstrong from Harbour Theater Society, who is the organizer of this event.

“In that way I guess they’re a lot more honest than real politicians because as we all know they make lots of promises and keep very little of them. So this is actually a more honest event than an election.”.

Tickets for Friday’s performance are available at the door. Members are free.

“When you buy a ticket, you get a membership which has a whole bunch of benefits, with the biggest benefit of all being that warm-fuzzy feeling that you get when you know you’re supporting Community Theater,” said Armstrong
