Crowning comedy

The Peninsula Players are holding auditions for their jubilee production titled Crown Jewels and you're invited.

In August, Peninsula Players will present another Diamond  Jubilee event, a cooperative venture with the Mary Winspear Centre and the Monarchist League of Canada. Queen Elizabeth II is also celebrating her Diamond Jubilee, 60 years as Queen of England.

The Diamond Jubilee committee, in collaboration with their partners, is preparing a pageant and production extraordinaire in Crown Jewels.

The production, including original epigrams from the kings and queens, poetry, songs and sketches will trace the facts, fancies and foibles of the British royal family from William I (the Conqueror) to William in waiting (Duke of Cambridge). The Players will feature plenty of colour, valour, rumour, and humour. It's a family show for all to enjoy.

Auditions will be held Sunday, July 15 at 1 p.m. and Monday, July 16 at 7:30 p.m. at the Peninsula Players clubhouse, 1649 Mount Newton X Rd.

For more information call Richard at 250-655-9295.

Crown Jewels will be at the Charlie White Theatre in Sidney on Saturday Aug. 25 at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday Aug. 26 at 2 p.m.
