Upcoming TRU production focuses on Emily Carr

Thompson Rivers University’s theatre students are set to return to the stage, this time with a production telling the story of an iconic Canadian painter.

Directed by Wesley Eccleston, The Magnificent Voyage of Emily Carr is a dramatization of the internal life of the artist, projecting how she sees her world.

The play stars Zenlia Philander as Emily Carr, Alexa Rood as Lizzie, Kalika Cook as Sophie, Laura Saul as D’sonoqua, Caleb Oman as Soul Tuner, Cole Horvat as Lawren Harris, and Keegan Kappes as Jackson, with voices from Patrick Atkinson Bruce and Keisha Anderson.

It debuts Thursday and runs until Saturday. A second run goes from Nov. 29 to Dec. 1. Tickets are $15 and can be purchased at the venue, TRU’s Black Box Theatre in the Old Main building, or online at brownpapertickets.com.

Magnificent Voyage is the second Actors Workshop Theatre production of the year. The next is Morning Becomes Electra, a Greek tragedy reimagined in Civil War-weary New England at the turn of the century. That play runs in 2019 from Feb. 29 to March 2 and March 7 to March 9.
