Cast reveals their Knickers

Laughter was freely flowing last week as Midway and Beyond Little Theatre presented Nana's Naughty Knickers.

A delivery mix-up caused all kinds of problems for a bootleg lingerie boutique. Nana’s Naughty Knickers kept the audience in stiches while things got sorted out.

Midway and Beyond Little Theatre brought Nana’s Naughty Knickers to the stage for a four-day run at the community hall last week. The comedy, written by Katherine Di Silvino, saw three evening performances and a Saturday matinee.

Directed by John Hibberson, the cast of eight kept the audience in stitches. It was especially fun for me because my daughter and granddaughter were visiting from Boston and, as well as getting to enjoy some community theatre where the actors were all locals, I had the fun of explaining that the actor playing the shy cop was actually the mayor, his real-life wife was in the role of the uptight granddaughter, the 83-year-old proprietor of a Central Park bootleg lingerie parlour is actually a retired school teacher, and the actor in the S&M outfit is the president of the elementary school PTA.

This was the second production for Midway and Beyond Little Theatre. Both cast and crew did a great job. The set and props were amazing with sliding panels and compartments designed to hide all of the lacy merchandise from prying eyes.

Those who attended the Friday evening show had the opportunity to enjoy a spaghetti dinner fundraiser for the Grade 6/7 field trip.
