The Sunshine Express, now playing at the Port Stanley Festival Theatre
until September 8th, 2018 teaches us that accepting a simple gift like a vacation
for two from a relative will eventually put a smile on ones face.
Starring Chris Bancroft as Alan, a sometimes unemployed husband, who lives
a somewhat miserable life until..., Danielle Nicole as Brenda, Alan's wife,
gets two tickets from her mother for a vacation to Florida on Charlie Cheedol Charters
senior's bus tour..., Scott Maudsley as mostly two favours of Bus Drivers
who seems to be in control..., and Caitlin Driscoll who mostly plays the Bus Tour
Guide that has a beautiful Scottish accent when needed. All four actors play a total
of thirty unique characters during the play switching roles as needed, which adds
intrigue at first while getting to know the characters and the story, then to follow
through with events that are lined up worthy of the audience's amusement.
Written by Sarah Quick and directed by Simon Joynes, this play offers a glimpse
of senior's fun times that catches the attention of the audience, and may require
singing. A great story with plenty of laughter, brought to the stage with that unique
PSFT touch, makes for an unbeatable package, that you won't soon forget.
The Port Stanley Festival Theatre production crew did an outstanding job for this
production with credit to Eric Bunnell for set design, Tony Sclafani for lighting
design, Laurie Merredew as stage manager, Cassidy Gallant as apprentice assistant
stage manager, and Alex Amini for costume design.
The Sunshine Express runs from August 22nd to September 8th, 2018,
and some advice before you take in the show, practice your singing as it may be
