Comedy fans were able to take in two shows this past weekend in Rosetown featuring local talent. The Rosetown Community Theatre Group held their annual performance at the Elks Hall.

"It was a pretty good crowd, very supportive. It was a little bit smaller crowd which we expected because there was so much going on over the weekend," said Max Linklater, Director of the Show.

The group performed the play "Let Him Sleep 'Til It's Time for his Funeral", which follows the story of a couple preparing for the husband's 50th birthday. The wife instead plans a funeral instead to show him how much everyone loves him which leads the husband to believe she plans to murder him. After some twists and turns, all is resolved in this comedy show.

There were five actors and another three behind the scenes putting the show together.

Linklater has been involved with the Theatre Group for around four years. He said it's just another great way to get community members together, "It brings the community together in a different aspect, normally in the winter it's hockey and curling and those types of things, so this brings a new variety of something else for the community. This year we had so many different companies and people donating and supporting us."

He noted most of the proceeds from the night will go back to fund next year's events, "It all goes back into the Theatre Group so we can work towards upkeep of equipment, performing next year, the rights for plays and hall rentals. We like to give a little here and there for scholarships and whatnot."

The group starts prepping and rehearsing their show in November each year for their March play. They also perform a second, smaller show during the Harvest Family Festival each year in September. Linklater said they will start preparing for that event shortly.

Interested performers can contact Max Linklater or any other member of the Rosetown Theatre Group if they would like to join the cast.
