This Thursday marks the Canadian premiere of Funny Little Thing Called Love, a comedy about an unpredictable night under a full moon that’s four shows in one.
The Surrey Little Theatre production – running Jan. 28 to Feb. 27 – tells four stories of love under a full moon. Set in five locales – San Francisco, Dallas, Honolulu, London and New York, the play spans the globe and features 13 different actors playing 28 different roles.
The full-length play – written by Jessie Jones, Nicholas Hope and Jamie Wooten – has four directors: Ken Boyd, Viv Newman, Patricia Braun and Brad Duncan, newbies from the SLT’s acting alumni.
Each helmed a segment of their own for the production, working under the guidance of mentor director Helen Embury.
The mentoring in the production doesn’t end there. Backstage, youth volunteers are learning the ropes in various off-stage positions, working the lights and sound for the show.
Performances are at 8 p.m. Thursday, Friday and Saturdays, with half price preview nights on Thursday, Jan. 28 and Friday, Jan. 29, along with three Sunday matinees Feb. 7, 14, and 21, starting at 2 p.m.
Audiences can look for a special Valentine’s Day Card exhibition in the lobby featuring work by visual artists and writers from the community.
