Looking opens July 15 at Century Church Theatre

Rehear­sals are under way at Century Church Theatre here for Looking, the witty new comedy by Norm Foster, Canada’s most popular playwright.

Directed by Neville Wors­nop, and starring Century vet­er­ans Elizabeth Glenday, Tamara Kunder, Wayne Moore, and Frank Rempel, the show plays July 15 to  25.

The contemporary play chronicles four middle-aged characters’ desperate, yet fun­ny, searching for a meaningful relationship. Rejecting a friend’s suggestion of topless beaches, cruises, and funerals as sure-fire pick-up places, Andy opts for the Personals column. His ad is answered by Val, who fears that after two more celibate years she will regain her virgin status.

When each takes a friend along on the first date, the scene is set for a series of hilarious encounters that will appeal to any age.

The show runs July 15 to 25, at 2:30pm on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays, and at 8pm on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays. Tickets are $22 to $27, inclusive of all taxes and charges, with group discounts, and can be reserved by calling the box office at 519-855-4586. For more details, visit www.centurychurch­the­atre.com.
