The curtain opens tonight (Apr. 12) for the latest production of Take a Bow Community Theatre at the RancheHouse Theatre, 101 RancheHouse Rd.

Marriage: A Demolition in Two Acts by Rick Chafe is a two act drama comedy centring upon two couples at different points in their lives and relationships.

Wayne and Julie embark on that emotional roller-coaster ride known as “renovating the kitchen” when they probably should be renovating their marriage instead. Their contractors are a twenty-something couple with issues of their own.

It's a hilarious look at renovation addiction, the friction between baby-boomers and millennials, and the nature of lifelong commitment in marriage… and in kitchen cabinet choices.

George Patterson and Penny Farrell perform as the older couple, Wayne and Julie. John and Maggie are played by Bryant Schroeder and Zoe Farrell.

There are 7 p.m. performances on Apr. 12 and 13 and Apr. 19 and 20, Sunday matinees at 2 p.m. on Apr. 14 and 21. Tickets are $20 and can be purchased here or with cash at the door.

The show contains mature subject matter and is recommended for ages 16+.

Doors open 20 minutes before curtain and there is no assigned seating. A concession will be open at intermission.

Take a Bow is community theatre at its finest. Everyone involved volunteers their time, from producers to stagehands to actors.  Practices for this production began 10 weeks ago. 

"The actors have been rehearsing three times a week for about the last 10 weeks," says producer Roxanne McCallum. "It's four actors carrying a two act show, so they've had lots of lines to learn, and they've been working really hard."

Take a Bow presents a pantomime around Christmas time, which is a family-friendly show, and most recent staged their first youth musical "Snow Queen." They hope to continue to offer drama comedies in the spring.
