Halloween play reading staged by theatre group

New Vintage Theatre will offer up the second in their series of play readings, Oct. 30.

New Vintage Theatre will offer up the second in their series of play readings at Pulp Fiction Coffeehouse on Tuesday, Oct.30.

This month’s presentation will be New Vintage artistic director Bonnie Gratz’s adaptation of Edgar Allen Poe’s classic. The Cask Of The Amontillado.

“It is a classic horror tale with a twist, set in the underbelly of Venice, Italy during Carnival. It is a tasty theatrical trick or treat evening for those who love a good scare,” says Gratz

Audience members are encouraged to bring a mask and their most terrifying book from home, whether it be a Stephen King classic or a dreaded high school math textbook.

This relaxed, fun event is free.

New Vintage Theatre is a small professional theatre company that was formed in August 2012 with the mandate to create and produce new works and remount the classics in captivating ways.

The group is buoyed by the outpouring of support they have received from artists and arts supporters in the community since their launch in August.

They will be announcing their first full season in January and starting their first Playwright’s Hot House, a new play development program for Interior artists. The group also offers acting classes for beginning and experienced actors in Rotary Centre For The Arts.

The New Vintage play reading Oct. 30 starts at 7 p.m.

While admission is free, those planning to attend are asked to RSVP to info@NewVintage.ca as space is limited.

Pulp Fiction Coffeehouse can be found at 1598 Pandosy St., at the corner of Lawrence and  Pandosy in Kelowna.

For more information about this release, please contact Bonnie Gratz at 778-214-1456 or email bonnie.gratz@NewVintage.ca.
