Udderfest will see audiences milking theatrical comedy and drama in Prince Rupert

The community theatre event is returning for its 22nd season

 

The Harbour Theatre Prince Rupert is issuing a casting call for new members to join their playbill in the many events offered. A Wednesday night improv group starts at 7:30 p.m. and runs for about an hour each week. Anyone is welcome is to stop by the Tom Rooney Theatre to check it out. “A bunch of us get together, some of us who have been doing improv for years, some are just getting started, and some are first-timers,” Tristan Higginson, treasurer said. “We play improv games, and it’s very low pressure. It’s a lot of fun. We have a lot of laughs.”
