Set in 1922, two frustrated English housewives decide to rent a villa in Italy to escape their bleak, predictable lives and recruit two very different English women to share in the cost and experience.  Among the wisteria blossoms and gorgeous Mediterranean sunshine, all four begin to re-discover themselves in ways they didn’t expect, and gain new perspective on what’s most important in their lives.

 

Described by the Los Angeles Times as “a lush, thoroughly refreshing theatrical holiday” and a “magical triumph”, Enchanted April will be directed by Trinity Western University professor, Kate Muchmore Wo. Woo is a director with credits from around the United States and BC including The Women of Lockerbie (Lock and Key Theatre), Twelfth Night for TWU SAMC Theatre and Crime & Punishment for Pacific Theatre/Stone’s Throw Productions. Kate has a MFA in Directing from the University of North Carolina, Greensboro.

 

“We’re very excited to welcome Kate to our theatre,” says Gallery 7 Theatre’s Artistic Director, Ken Hildebrandt. “She will bring a tremendous amount of talent and expertise to this production, and I think audiences will enjoy a transformative and entertaining theatre experience as a result.”

Enchanted April will run May 19 & 20, 24 – 27, 2017 @ 7:30 PM with discount matinees on May 20 & 27 at 2:00 PM at the Matsqui Centennial Auditorium, 32315 South Fraser Way, Abbotsford. Rehearsals will commence the week of March 27.
