Udderfest Kicks Off In Prince Rupert
The 14th annual festival hits the stage tonight with two plays, showcasing local playwrights and actors.
The Chair of the Udderfest Committee talks about the types of plays viewers should expect.
“The plays are a bit alternative in nature I would guess. They’re sort of somewhat off the beaten path. I mean Zenbridge is a great example, you’re probably not going to see a lot of plays about zombies and pipelines combined,” said Chris Armstrong.
Plays are taking place at both the Tom Rooney Playhouse and the Lester Centre until August 12th.
Armstrong says lots of planning and rehearsing went into the festival this year.
“The planning process for Udderfest involves basically an entire board, a lot of the membership as well, a lot of volunteers, a lot of people putting a lot of their time in and really not getting paid for it. So we’re very thankful for everyone who’s been involved with Udderfest this year. It’s been a really strong group effort.”
He notes that one particular community member, Chelsea Jesser, has played a key role in organizing this year’s festival.
Tickets are available at Teddy’s, Homework, and Seahorse Trading Company.
