Cow Patti Theatre will make audiences laugh again

Lacombe’s Cow Patti theatre is once again preparing to raise the curtains for a spectacular comedy and a touching love story

Lacombe’s Cow Patti theatre is once again preparing to raise the curtains for a spectacular comedy and a touching love story “Perfect Wedding” and once again Valerie Barrett of Ponoka is cast in the lead role in the play that will open on February 13.

Written by one of the most prolific of British playwrights, Robin Hawdon, the play has reportedly been produced several hundred times in more than 20 countries.

With a plot based on bizarre coincidences like a bridegroom preparing to tie the knot that day waking up to find a very attractive woman in his bed just before the bride-to-be is about to arrive, the play is said to be massively popular with audiences.

Cow Patti theatre says there is a further bonus: Their version of the production will be directed by Walter Learning, a Canadian theatre icon, who is said to be coming to central Alberta only to direct the performances which will go on until March 2.

Cow Patti theatre says the performance on Feb. 27 will be a benefit performance for Ponoka Victim Services.
