The United Church Players are gearing up for their annual spring play that is set to take place in three communities over three days. Practices have begun and take place every Monday and Wednesday at the Trinity United Church in Preeceville.
Pat Prokop is directing a cast which includes: Daniel Metherell, Taylor Belesky, Elaine Meachem, Kennedy Kosheluk, Nicholas Lingl, Trina Wardle, Mikes Russell, Britney Vewchar, Myra Stachiw, Ron Waugh, Hazel Urbanoski and Karolyn Kosheluk. Looking after ighting and stage are Arlene and Natasha Lingl.
Nothing but the Truth is a fast-paced comedy-mystery, set on an ocean liner around the time of the Titanic. It strikes the perfect balance between humor and suspense (but without that awful sinking feeling at the end). The drama production is scheduled for April 29 in Stenen, April 30 in Sturgis, and concludes on May 1 in Preeceville.
David, an adventurous young man traveling with his sister, finds himself in a boatload of trouble after he pretends to be a spy in order to impress Katrina, a girl he has just met, says a synopsis of the play. He enlists her help in solving a phony mystery he has created while Pete, who also has an eye on Katrina, rocks the boat after discovering competition from David. But truth is stranger than fiction as David realizes that a real international mystery is unfolding on board the ship. He finds himself in the middle of an actual sabotage plot that forces him to delve into a dangerous mystery to save the ship from a hidden bomb. Along the way, he discovers a passenger mysteriously traveling with a large sum of foreign money and is wary of Captain Kraus, whose name singles him out as a possible German agent. With a slew of hilarious misleading clues, love triangles and mistaken identities, this entertaining, lighthearted tale of spies and espionage will peak the audience’s curiosity and funny bone.
