The Boutique Community Theatre is humming with anticipation for its lineup this season, according to Ken and Karrie Sebryk, the Boutique’s founding directors.
“We welcome our old friends, and are embracing many, many new faces you will see and hear in the coming months,” said Karrie Sebryk, M.A.
The Boutique will feature one major new show each month, with the rest of the weeks filled with music, education, and movies.
“We would like to acknowledge all the faces you will not see on opening nights; the crafts people who design and build, and clothe the sets and the actors,” she added. “From sound and lighting design to painting the set, selling tickets and designing posters, these people are vital to each show’s character.”
Making her directorial debut at The Boutique is the multi-talented Barbara Ann Renee, a popular PV personality, and veteran show-biz diva. “Heir to a Misfortune” is the show she has chosen.
Renee describes the show as “a completely hilarious farce about a zany group of greedy, quirky characters. The show is something the audience will relate to, and laugh at. A couple of surprising twists will definitely make the audience roar.
“We have a great cast with a few newbies who are bringing more community to our community theatre. Shamsun Nazi is the bomb as my Stage Manager and personal assistant. Get ready, Vallarta!”
