If you’re bored and sitting at home this Friday night (Nov. 25), do yourself and favour and head to the Revelstoke Performing Arts Centre at 7.30 p.m to catch The Revelstoke Project.
It’s your last chance to see this comedic theatre which takes an amusing look at what it is to be Revelstokian, all for a monetary donation to the Food Bank.
The first showing was Thursday evening, Nov. 25 and Nelson-based actor Lucas Myers put on his one-man show to great success. If the crowd’s reaction was anything to go by, many found it hilarious, with plenty of home-truths.
Myers spent three separate weeks in the community this year, studying our various characters, cliches and unique quirks. The result of that hard work is evident as the stereotypes and their grievances are spot-on.
He immerses himself in different characters, giving the show dimension, as well as using digital media to keep it interesting.
In The Revelstoke Project, Myers plays Ryan who will give you a helping hand at understanding what it’s like to live in Revelstoke.
Best parts are the bank teller, who shares her secrets on what type of man you should date depending on their preference of sport. There is also the CPR worker’s rap on what it is like working hard for a living and dealing with haphazard scheduling.
You’ll also meet the Parks Canada officer who is mad about picas, and two other characters.
Myers has had previous success putting on shows for Revelstoke with Hello Baby and Deck: How I Instigated And Then Overcame An Existential Crisis Through Home Improvement.
The Revelstoke Project is extensive and varied and it’s always fun to have a good laugh at yourself. Check it out, tell your friends and check out our previous story with an interview with Myers to find out more.
