Côte Saint-Luc Dramatic Society presents Norm Foster’s Office Hours in May

This fast-paced comedy is set to send the city into hysterics!
Côte Saint-Luc, April 18, 2012: A laugh riot in our own back yards!
The Côte Saint- Luc Dramatic Society will perform Norm Foster’s Office Hours from Thursday, May 24th to Saturday, May 26th, 2012 in the Harold Greenspon Auditorium at 5801 Cavendish Blvd.

Hot on the heels of their sold out success with Grease in January, The Côte Saint-Luc Dramatic Society is set to send the city into hysterics with Norm Foster’s fast-paced comedy, Office Hours.  Tickets will be available for purchase online, at The Eleanor London Côte Saint-Luc Public Library (5851 Cavendish Blvd.), the Aquatics and Community Centre (5794 Parkhaven Ave.), The Côte Saint-Luc Parks and Recreation Office (7500 Mackel Rd.), or by phone at (514) 485-6806.  Tickets cost $15 (plus tax).  Showtimes are 8 pm on May 24th, 25th and 26th.  There will also be two 2 pm matinees, one on Friday, May 25th, and one on Saturday, May 6th.

Norm Foster’s Office Hours takes place during the same Friday afternoon in six different offices in the big city.  We follow the stories that take place in each office, and, as the story unfolds, each story becomes connected with the other; A newsman who will do anything to keep his job, a Canadian Producer willing to overlook the shortcomings of a down and out Director, an Entertainment Agent caught in a scandal, a lawyer with big news to share, a delusional jockey, a love-starved therapist and a man on a ledge, this promises to be a production you won’t soon forget!

"Norm Foster is Canada's most-produced dramatist, and no wonder. His snappy dialogue, everyday situations and gently balanced characters dare to represent that great, under-represented middle of North American society." - Halifax Daily News

Anisa Cameron returns to direct the cast of 15, which includes Côte Saint-Luc’s own Mayor, Anthony Housefather and three City Councilors (Mitchell Brownstein, Sam Goldbloom, Côte Saint-Luc, and Herbert Brownstein, Dollard Des-Ormeaux).  Ariel Sterlin, who played Frenchy in Grease, has joined the cast as the production Stage Manager and Scott Drysdale returns as the lighting and Technical Director for the production.

About the Côte Saint-Luc Dramatic Society
The Côte Saint-Luc Dramatic Society is a community theatre initiative that began in the summer of 2011 in partnership with the City of Côte Saint-Luc.  The goal of the society is to bring together actors, writers, musicians and other artistically minded community members to produce theatrical works in an inclusive environment where emphasis is placed on team work and comradery, not celebrity.
