Seniors Games spotlight on one-act plays

Theatre is a sport.

The Fraser Valley's Sunrise Art Players competed in Friday's one-act plays as part of the BC Seniors Games.



BC seniors got creative on Friday afternoon as they took the stage to present one-act plays at Nelson’s Capitol Theatre.

Two groups participated. One from the Fraser Valley and the other from Victoria.

The Sunrise Art Players from the Fraser Valley presented a comedic murder mystery written by Eve Baldwin, who also played the leading lady.

The St. Lukes Players from Victoria presented Dinner for One, adapted from a play by Laurie Wylie.

Each play was roughly half an hour followed by adjudication by local theatre veteran Laurie Jarvis.

The St. Lukes Players were awarded the gold medal and the Sunrise Art Players took home the silver.
