The Murray Players
Murray River Community Hall
The boarding house in question is reputed to be haunted by a pirate who murdered all his pirates and buried his treasure in the basement. A new resident, a somewhat troubled person, is convinced the treasure exists and goes to great efforts to try and find it. The other residents get caught up in his scheme.
Many of the existing Murray Players company are contributing their talents both on and off stage for this production. Linda Palmer plays a taxidermist, Gladys. Mr Richards, an unproven artistic author, is played by John Hardy. Donna Penny plays Veronica, the sister of the troubled treasure seeker. Mary-Lou MacLure plays the role of Harriet, the boarding house owner. The role of Tweenie, a young and nervous servant, is played by Jaime Gardner. Linda Stewart plays the role of Martha, a chronic hypochondriac with a deep attraction to the treasure hunter.
Several new members have joined the company. Jared Thompson plays the part of the seemingly gentlemanly treasure hunter. The part of Dr. Snifell, a retired octogenarian doctor who does nor realize he is retired, is played by Phil Durocher. Ivy, played by Dory Murdoch is a scatterbrained lady who likes painting people's faces. Hortense, played by Anne Thompson, is the harried carer.
Backstage Les Stewart will be doing lighting, sound effects and more. Jackie Durocher is the prompter and provides artistic skills for the set.
