‘I’ll Be Back Before Midnight’ coming soon to Manluk Theatre

Co-directors Eldon Roth and Randy D. Hoyle make return to director’s chair for Waterworks Players

A screaming good time at the Manluk Theatre!

The Waterworks Players production of Peter Colley’s classic thriller, “I’ll Be Back Before Midnight,” will leave audiences screaming – but is it in terror…or laughter?

Greg and Jan decide to make a fresh start living in the country following Jan’s release from the “hospital” to recover from a nervous disorder. They rent a farmhouse from George, a welcoming and friendly old farmer who delights in telling gruesome ghost stories. When Greg’s strange sister, Laura, arrives, life takes a frightening turn as dead bodies begin to appear — and then disappear.

Co-directors Eldon Roth and Randy D. Hoyle both make a return to the director’s chair to bring these characters to life …. and death, and work their magic in creating the set and the series of special effects. Warning: Gunshots, loud noises…and screams!

The cast features Waterworks Players alumni Kathryn Campbell as the fragile but determined Jan, Lisa Hill as the forceful sister Laura, Merv Leibel as George, the jovial and misunderstood farmer and making his debut on the Manluk Theatre stage, Nabil Ibrahim who plays the distracted husband Greg.

The directors, cast and crew deliver a funny and sometimes scary production that will keep the audiences laughing and gasping.

Performances run November 16, 17 and 18 and November 23, 24, and 25 at the Manluk Theatre for the Performing Arts 5002 53 Ave. Wetaskiwin.

Shows will be at 7:30 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, with matinees at 2 p.m. on Sunday. Tickets are $22 each and are available at manluktheatre.com/tickets, or Dalcon Visual Arts at 4940-50 Street, Wetaskiwin.
