Theatre Kelowna is Expecting and it’s an 8 lb., 3 oz. Bundle of Laughs

Theatre Kelowna is eagerly anticipating the imminent birth of its new arrival, “Having Hope at Home” and can’t wait to show the little bundle off to local theatregoers. According to proud mother to be, lead actress Dorothy Dalba, everything is moving along according to plan. “Aside from having to play 9-months pregnant AND deliver a baby on stage when I have never had a baby, “Hope” is starting to kick. Lovingly nurtured by well-known director Kim Foreman-Rhindress, “Hope” promises to be a real bundle of laughs. “We have the ideal combination of a very funny and touching play coupled with an award winning and experienced cast,” says Kim, “this baby is presenting beautifully and we are anticipating an easy delivery everyone involved will be proud of”.

The award winning Canadian play is about a family who is having a hard time communicating with each other. It takes place at the family farm house in Ontario on the very night Carolyn (Dorothy Dalby) unexpectedly goes into labour. How can she tell her father, the head of obstetrics (Stephen Jefferys) that she’s decided to have her baby at home, even worse – with a midwife? (Karen Mason). Her somewhat senile grandfather (Roger Ward) and Quebecois husband (Jim Rhindress) are on her side but her high strung mother (Deb Nicholson) will probably have a nervous breakdown when she learns the truth.

Full of laughs and beautiful moments of reconnection, “Having Hope at Home” is a show that delivers. “The sudden and rapid comedic delivery will have you in stitches and the heart-warming yet painful family pangs will make you resolve to go home and call your mothers”, says long time actress Deb Nicholson.

Having Hope at Home is due April 22nd and will be available for viewing for ten performances at the Black Box Theatre downtown. Tickets are $25.00 (plus service fees) and are available at www.SelectYourTickets.com or at the Prospera box office or for $30.00 at the door. Seating is limited so it is strongly recommended that tickets are purchased early.
