Misery by William Goldman, based on the novel by Stephen King

Half of the house stood up in ovation at curtain call for the two main characters of the show, Lucia Frangione and Andrew McNee during opening night at the Surrey Arts Centre last January 10th. I was impressed by the acting of these two actors but even more impressed by the innovative set design of Lauchlin Johnston. Full review

Reviewer Ed Farolan

Disney’s Beauty and the Beast is a proven favourite among audiences and creative teams alike. And Bill Millerd, after 40 years directing for the Arts Club Company, has picked another favourite that delighted the matinee audience composed of children, parents and grandparents most of whom were in their Sundays suits, even if it was a Saturday.

It was another enjoyable two and a half hours of dancing, singing and joking around at last Sunday's (December 10) full house matinee performance. It's this time of the year for pantos all over the lower mainland, and this time, the White Rock Players’ Club presents the Victor Hugo masterwork ~ The Hunchback of Notre-Dame, based on the script by Panto master, Dave Baron. Full review
