Markham Little Theatre returns to the Flato Markham Theatre stage for the first time since 2020 with Aspirin and Elephants by Jerry Mayer from November 16 to 19.
Aspirin and Elephants, by playwright Jerry Mayer, introduces us to Honey and Junior. They are a married couple who – following a health crisis – decides to embrace life by heading off on a cruise. To make it a true celebration, they invite their two daughters and sons-in-law to join them.
“Markham Little Theatre chose this play for our patrons because we have opted for a 2022/2023 season of comedy,” says the show’s stage manager and company president, Sarah McDonald. “The pandemic kept everyone at home and away from loved ones. We are looking forward to getting out into the world again, and this play takes that idea and runs with it!”
The cast features Marlene Foran, Harry Hochman Nicky Marsh, John Fetherston, Julia Guthrie, and Steve Birtles. They’ll be directed by the team of Michele Browne and Kerry Harmon with Judy Atherton handling producer duties.
Markham Little Theatre is staffed entirely by volunteers. These dedicated folks have already started constructing the set, and will begin finding props and costumes to bring the stage alive in the weeks to come. If you would like to volunteer with, or are interested in supporting MLT, reach out to [email protected].
“Markham Little Theatre invites you to join us on our hilarious upcoming adventure,” adds McDonald.
Aspirin and Elephants will be presented at Flato Markham Theatre from November 16-19. Visit markhamtheatre.ca for more information.
