Rural Alberta has arts culture

Posted on April 9, 2014 by Taber Times

I wish to commend Taber Players for their excellent production of “And Then There Were None”. The acting was superb. No character was weak in his or her role. The director managed to keep the action moving forward in such a manner that even though some of the dialogue was lengthy, it was never tiring. There were no glitches in the entire presentation.

Seasoned actors and great directing along with creative design on the sets and period costuming that is always appropriate are standard features of Taber Players productions. I mustn’t forget skilled hair design and make-up. The community is fortunate to have a co-operative and experienced cast and crew to bring top notch live theatre to Taber and area.

I also commend the Vauxhall community for their recent production of their spring play “Who’s Dying to Be a Millionaire?”. It was a full evening of laughs from beginning to end.Their presentation was no easy task, with 30 or so actors coming on, going off or staying on the stage while creative lighting and sound gave an illusion of reality to the game show atmosphere. With a full house, it is obvious that Vauxhall folks enjoy live theatre as much as Taber people do. With little to admire about today’s TV fare, it is hoped that these kinds of productions will continue in our various centres around southern Alberta.
