CSL Dramatic Society Debuts

The Côte Saint-Luc Dramatic Society will be staging their first theatrical presentation on Sunday, June 12 ( 7 p.m) at the the Harold Greenspon Auditorium of City Hall (5801 Cavendish Boulevard). The newly formed Dramatic Society held open auditions in early May, putting out a call for community members interested in acting, writing, singing and dancing. The community answered. In a short 5five weeks, the Society pulled together a cast of 30 theatre enthusiasts varying in age from 17 to 77 years old, and a team of eager writers from Côte Saint-Luc and surrounding neighborhoods.

As noted WestEnd physician, assistant director and performer Jerrold Rappaport notes, "the goal of the Côte Saint-Luc Dramatic Society, an initiative by the Parks and Recreation Department, is to create a community theatre that is accessible to everyone, to encourage cultural vitality within the community, and to take advantage of the many talented residents of the city from different generations."

The Society is open to participants of all ages, levels of experience and expertise. Their first presentation, Dining Out: An Evening of Scenes, Sketches and Songs will feature the talents of Mayor Anthony Housefather and Councillor Mitchell Brownstein. Pictured above are Yariv Barsheshat and Howard Braziller getting into the act.

With over 35 contributing members for their first project, The Dramatic Society is hopeful about mounting a full-scale production in the fall of this year.
