Quebec Art Company to Come Alive with DEATHTRAP

Quebec Art Company to Come Alive with DEATHTRAP


Submitted by Sharon MacLeod

While most of us are enjoying the sneak preview of spring weather, the Quebec Art Company (QAC) is busy rehearsing for their spring production of Ira Levin’s comedy-thriller Deathtrap.

Nathalie Peron, for the 3rd time, is in the director’s chair for this one.

It has been said that Deathtrap is quite an intimate play, what with there being only five characters in it.

With that in mind, Peron had no difficulty in assembling her cast from those who braved the auditions.

QAC veteran, Mark Lepitre (male lead in last year’s Prisoner of Second Avenue), is back on stage and will play a seasoned, successful writer in a career slump.

Michael Bourguignon, who entertained the masses in his debut QAC performance in Guys and Dolls last fall, will play a young, ambitious writer.

The female lead is Anne Letellier de St-Just. A fine actor, she possesses subtle but piercing looks. (I know – I have been on stage with her!)

Simon Harvey, another QAC regular (both back stage and out front) is once again under the lights for his third time with the QAC playing the crafty lawyer.

The big news this time round is that QAC stalwart, Cheryl Rimmer, invaluable as director, producer, set designer and more over the past many years, will finally return to acting, the root of her artistic drive. She’ll be playing the quirky, psychic neighbour. Meryl Streep, watch out – she’s even got the accent!

Evening performances will take place at Holland School 940, ave Ernest-Gagnon, Quebec on Friday and Saturday, May 4 and 5 at 8:00 p.m. and a matinee performance on Sunday, May 6, at 2:00 p.m. To reserve tickets ($12 adults, $9 age 65+/-18 and students) call 418-254-6552.
