Lauded for his previous performances here, popular actor William Vickers is back in Prince George.
This time the gifted actor portrays Wullie in Theatre North West’s newest offering, The Black Bonspiel of Wullie MacCrimmon, by W. O. Mitchell. Known as a very versatile actor who is compelling both in his comedic and dramatic roles, Vickers is with a number of top-notch cast mates made up of both local and out of town actors.
MacCrimmon is a small-town shoemaker, a steady Presbyterian and a curling fanatic who would give anything to skip a championship rink. That’s right: anything. So Wullie’s not surprised when a sinister stranger drops by his shop to offer a diabolical deal. Ultimately, MacCrimmon must curl to save his soul, battling the Prince of Darkness and his accursed team in a Black Bonspiel. In this classic Canadian comedy, only one thing is certain:
Wullie and his team are in for a hell of a match.
Other actors in the play include Stefano Giulianetti as O. Clutie, Kirk Smith as Reverend Pringle, Zarrah Holvick as Marie Antoinette, Nigel McInnis as Judas Iscariat, and Paul Herbert as Macbeth. Director is Robin Nichol.
The Black Bonspiel of Wullie MacCrimmon by W.O. Mitchell runs Feb. 12 to March 4 starting at 8 p.m. with matinees on Feb. 22 and March 1 at 2 p.m. Tickets are at Books and Company, phone 250-614-0039.
