The Langley Players Drama Club is set to stage two encore performances of its multiple award-winning production Lost in Yonkers.

The play recently won top honours in the Fraser Valley Zone Festival and will now be competing against seven other plays from around the province at the Theatre BC Mainstage Festival in Kamloops June 29 to July 6.

“Our fantastic team is working very hard to prepare for Mainstage in Kamloops on July 4,”  said director Mary Renvall.

“And as part of this preparation we are planning two additional performances.”

Club President Angela Bell is equally elated. “We feel truly honoured to be representing Langley and the Fraser Valley in competition with the best of each Theatre BC Zone,” she said.

“We are grateful for the support we have received from the community, and in particular we would like to thank the Township of Langley for the Community Grant which will help to defray the costs of participating in this event.

“The original show was largely sold out and these additional performances will give patrons who missed the original show another chance.”

Lost in Yonkers will be performed on  June 23 and 24 at the Langley Playhouse, 4307 200 St. in Brookswood.

Show time is 8 p.m. All tickets will be $20 – slightly higher than normal Langley Players’ ticket prices to help cover the costs of taking the play to Mainstage.
