ZAP Theatre’s spring production promises big musical and dance numbers for play goers.

The play will be the Canadian premier of Alison, a musical set in the 1960s that straight-arrow boyfriend Jeff regretting a decision to break up with hair salon owner Alison, explained director Daniel Allers.

“When he goes to apologize and make up, he discovers Alison has decided to become a star in Hollywood and has fallen in with a sleazy agent,” said Allers.

Jeff now has to do his best to help Alison from making this life choice. Allers says the play is, “full of great song and dance and charming characters. Alison is sure to delight audiences of all ages.”

“Great singing, great acting, and like all ZAP shows, it is appropriate for all ages. Whether you are nine or 99, it’s an enjoyable show,” he added.

ZAP’s goal is to raise money to support the Christian Life Orphanage in Mwanza, Tanzania. Tickets are free-will offering.

The show runs for two weekends starting this Friday, May 5 and 6 and then May 12 and 13, with 7 p.m. shows on all days, and 1:30 p.m. matinees on the Saturdays. Doors open 30 minutes before showtime.

Call Daniel at 403-348-1891 for more information.
