Miller’s ‘View From The Bridge’ opens Cranbrook Community Theatre season

2017/18 marks inaugural year for “Abbott Award” nominations

For The Townsman

Cranbrook Community Theatre opens the 2017-18 theatre season with Arthur Miller’s classic, “A View From The Bridge”, directed by Cranbrook theatre legend Paul Kershaw.

Arthur Miller is considered one of the greatest American playwrights of the 20th century and “A View From The Bridge” is one of his best. This is CCT’s first production of one of Miller’s scripts and with Paul Kershaw’s extensive experience at the helm, this will certainly be a memorable production.

Paul has gathered some of the area’s finest actors to bring this gritty story to life. Dave Prinn, Michelle McCue, Jelena Jensen, Trevor Lundy, Carter Gulseth and Barry Borgstrom take on the challenging principal roles, joined in the supporting roles by both experienced performers and a number of new faces.

Anyone who is familiar with Paul’s previous work knows that his sets are almost characters unto themselves. This set will bring the audience almost right into the tenement dwellings of 1950’s New York by removing the front row of seats with the action of the show spilling right off the stage.

This will also impact the amount of tickets available so do not delay in getting tickets to this show. Tickets are available at Lotus Books for $15 for CCT Members and $18 for non-members. Performances begin Saturday, Oct. 28, at 7:30 pm followed by a matinee performance on Sunday Oct. 29 at 2 pm. The remaining performances are all at 7:30 pm on Nov. 1, 2, 3, 4, 8, 9, 10, & 11.

“A View From The Bridge” also holds the distinction of being the very first show to qualify for the “Abbott Awards”. Named after Cranbrook theatre icon, Bud Abbot, these awards will celebrate the hard work, dedication, talent and skill that go into all our theatre productions. The awards ceremony will take place in May 2018 and all CCT Members will get to vote for their favourite theatre experiences this season. Stay tuned for more information on this exciting event.
