The Northern Lights Community Theatre (NLCT) had the entire audience laughing when they brought Jon Lonoff’s comedy Skin Deep to life from May 10-12 at Queen Elizabeth District High School.
TalkinBroadway.com gives this synopsis of Skin Deep: “In Skin Deep, a large, lovable, lonely-heart, named Maureen Mulligan, gives romance one last shot on a blind-date with sweet awkward Joseph Spinelli; she’s learned to pepper her speech with jokes to hide insecurities about her weight and appearance, while he’s almost dangerously forthright, saying everything that comes to his mind. They both know they’re perfect for each other, and in time they come to admit it.”
Anita Webster, who directed the play, said the NLCT liked the humour of this play, which led to them choosing it.
“We thought this play had heart and it’s funny,” she said.
Webster also added that she’s always happy to see the good crowd sizes, and she was glad to see everyone enjoying the play.
“I’m so glad that we get such good crowds, and it’s great to see everyone here enjoying the play,” she finished.
The NLCT is run by volunteers, and they’re always looking to add to their team. Anyone with an interest in finding out more about theatre in Sioux Lookout can visit the theatre group’s Facebook page, Northern Lights Community Theatre - Sioux Lookout, Ontario.
