Theatre NorthWest literally dances through it’s season opener, with the double-bill production “Fish Eyes”.
Prince George’s professional theatre company’s season starter has earned acclaim from across Canada. The two plays are written and performed by award-winning Canadian actress Anita Majumdar.
The plays are both moving and humourous, and feature some pretty amazing traditional Indian dancing – sometimes mashed up with popular music from the 2000’s. In fact, the plays take their substance from Anita’s teen age years growing up in the BC community of Port Moody, and feature some of the comically sad ways she navigated through culture clashes in a fairly typical Canadian secondary school.
The performance runs until October 7.
Jack Grinhaus, Artistic Director of TNW adds this about the company’s 25th anniversary season: “Our season theme is Celebration as we look at yesterday, today, and tomorrow to help culminate our entire history behind and ahead of us! From a new world perspective, to a musical reminiscent of our most attended show in history, to the first play ever done at TNW, and finally a World Premiere of a familiar and relatable comedy, this season celebrates what it means to be alive and what it is about life that is real and beautiful! We couldn’t be more excited to be turning the corner of one era and beginning a new one, as we cross this incredible milestone.”
