A Sextet of Stories – Both Funny & Poignant

Belleville:The laughs will rumble Belleville Theatre Guild as it continues its season with Norm Foster’s “Bedtime Stories”.

This show brings together 6 ingenious tiers of Norm Foster. Each story intertwines into the next, all with the central focus being a bed. While you never see anything graphic or uncouth, the content is written with an adult audience in mind.

Director Phil Bowerman always been a Norm Foster fan, Bedtime Stories will be his 8th Foster production with the Guild. “The show will be a wonderful Valentines date, you can laugh and cry, and enjoy them both” says Phil.

“Bedtime Stories” weaves itself seamlessly as a shock radio jock pays a couple five thousand dollars to make love on the air; an aging rock star is confronted by a groupie; a woman visits a dying man she feels she hurt years ago. Full of delightful characters, hilarious situations and Foster’s wonderful dialogue, this is the perfect antidote to the February blahs.
The upcoming “Bedtime Stories” will be this years’ festival piece where Director Phil Bowerman is “looking forward to being in competition with the other theatre groups in the E.O.D.L, and hosting the awards banquet in March”.

Hitting the stage in order of appearance is Scott Roodvoets, Linda Tipper, Colin Leonard, Dave Henderson. Amy Pero, Marvin Tucker, Richard Bly, Terry Boyd, Maija Thompson, William Dauphinee, Heather Barker, Mary Lou Stogre, Mike Wilcox, Alexandra Bell and Phil Bowerman. Assisting on the backstage side we have Marvin Tucker and Jim Love as co-producers and Judy Bridle at the shows stage manager.

When asked on his final thoughts, Phil replied with a grin, “It’s a great cast for a great show!”
