LOCAL COUPLE PREPARING FOR FOSTER FESTIVAL READING

Sharry Flett and Anthony Bekenn look forward to their participation in the Foster Festival’s virtual production of The Christmas Tree, a holiday favourite, they can’t help but feel fortunate at the rare opportunity to perform during a pandemic. 

Like so much else about life during COVID, last week the production organizers had to quickly pivot from planned performances before live audiences, paired with a meal at a local restaurant, to virtual readings, but they have found a way to make the most of it.

They’re excited about the Foster Festival’s upcoming Christmas offering, which is providing opportunities for 12 local acting couples. Foster’s “handle on dialogue is superb,” says Bekenn, “and there is a wonderful balance between humour and pathos which he gives his characters. He really understands humanity, and his plays are great fun to watch.” Read more here.
