  • The Wellington Advertiser - REVIEW: Whos Under Where is a farce that causes tears to flow, sides to ache
    a posh hotel room filled with undergarments hoping to impress Bruno Fruferelli an Italian designer who is a giant the fashion world A deal with him gets the women set for a huge career and lots of bucks The problem is their husbands Nigel Hamer is Paul Pritchard and Brad Rudy is George Brunt They have become suspicious of their wives actions particularly since they have seen their bank accounts suddenly and drained and the women have been coming home late and hanging up the phone when they enter the room They follow their wives to the hotel to catch them red handed in an affair and all heck breaks lose Kash uses a marvelous set by Allan Wilbee and costumes by Angela VanderVeen to bring the play to its wackiest potential Not a trick is missed Some of the best scenes are silent ones with the two husbands fighting and gawking from a balcony while the women are busy solving their problems of delayed models expensive champagne and what to do when their female model gets knocked out of action The husbands get accused of burglary for stealing the lingerie the wives deny they know them a hot to trot security guard played by Ian Deakin takes a shine to Paul Pritchard disguised in women s lingerie and a male model named Sebastian Jason Adam Clarke hilariously demonstrates how a woman designer can take some beautiful revenge on Hugh Heffner When Robin Ward arrives as designer Bruno Fruferelli the laughs only increase His suave man of the world demeanor was perfect for the role and his letch for Paul Pritchard still in the lingerie was hilarious too The entire evening is a complete romp Hamer is particularly good when forced to act as a mannikin His attempts to keep a grin off his face recall the best comic moments of Red Skelton who also had trouble concealing his laughter at the goings on around him Hamer also has some fabulously funny accents when forced to disguise his voice He and Rudy as the reluctant spying husbands play off each other brilliantly And then there is the underwear er lingerie They look like nothing in our dresser and are made of materials and colours that are unlikely to ever be found in nature It might seem odd but the props of the production get nearly as much laughs as the comic lines Both are deserving too It was a close contest but by our count women had the most howls and shrieks from the show but the men in the audience were also doubled over most of the night as the one liners flew and the underwear got tossed It was a perfect comic evening of entertainment Who s Under Where runs until Sept 24 To order tickets call the theatre box office at 519 638 5555 or toll free at 1 855 372 9866 September 16 2011 Tweet Tell Us What You Think Login to submit a comment Comments

    more ice time That s exactly what transpired last year as Spaling primarily a centre though he also plays wing was trusted in many different situations and was heralded for his play by coach Barry Trotz and also his teammates He will do whatever it takes to help the team linemate Jerred Smithson told The Tenessean a Nashville newspaper during the playoffs last season He just goes out there every shift every night and battles hard Spaling who turns 23 on Sept 19 said he now feels much more comfortable with the team and has grown close to some of his teammates That can happen after a season like the Predators had in 2010 11 The team defeated the Anaheim Ducks 4 2 in the first round and Spaling s second of two goals in game six was the game and series winner sending the Predators franchise to the second round for the first time in its 12 year history It was something special to be a part of Spaling said of the team s playoff run which ended after a second round defeat at the hands of eventual Stanley Cup finalists the Vancouver Canucks Spaling said making the playoffs this year is a must and the ultimate goal as always is winning Lord Stanley s mug He stressed he really appreciates the support he has received particularly during the Predators playoff run last year from people in Drayton and Mapleton Township It s always cool to get support from people back home when you re so far away he said If last year is any indication that support is sure to be there for him again during the 2011 12 season Spaling will be featured in an Inside Wellington cover story in the Nov 11 issue of the Wellington

  • The Wellington Advertiser - REVIEW: Howto production shows reasons for theatre companys success
    left the theatre The tunes were stirring but none particularly memorable Perhaps they were when the show opened on Broadway in 1961 Despite all that the show still succeeds admirably because Drayton does its productions so very well sometimes despite the material J Pierrepont Finch played by Ari Butler is the erstwhile window washer and Jayme Armstrong is his love interest Rosemary Pilkington Ponty keeps reading his how to books which are read to the audience by the estimable Neil Aitchison and Ponty uses Rosemary s help to overcome corporate backstabbing in his steady rise to corporate power The show has the obligatory blustery boss his wimpy but scheming nephew a host of middle managers all looking for power a gaggle of secretaries plus a bombshell beauty who is the boss s distraction The success of the show begins with a marvelous set by Douglas Paraschuk It opens with a skyscraper and then morphs into an atrium at the Worldwide Wicket company changes easily into a mail room several offices and even the secretaries and the executives washrooms whence much skulduggery and laughter are wrought The scene changes were as much entertainment as they were functional and that is not something easily accomplished It was done very smoothly at the large stage in Drayton though There was terrific lighting by Kevin Fraser Every time Ponty gets a terrific idea or sees his way out of a corporate scrape his face literally lights up One can almost see the light bulb coming on over his head It got to the point the audience began laughing every time it happened The show also succeeds because while the music was not particularly memorable the performances of the songs were uniformly excellent The song and dance numbers were wonderfully choreographed by Michael Lichtefeld aided and abetted by dance captain and actor Stephen Cota It takes a great deal of skill to have everyone in sync and the large company did it with ease and with style It is difficult to pick out a particular actor or actress because every role was excellently filled In one scene every secretary arrives at a gala party each wearing a brand new dress from Paris And all of them are wearing exactly the same dress One could see women in the audience nodding but what made the scene truly memorable was how wonderfully hideously ugly those dresses were How to Succeed in Business without Really Trying runs until Sept 3 The opening night was packed and tickets are selling quickly Call 519 638 5555 or 1 855 855 372 9866 of visit www draytonfestivaltheatre com August 26 2011 Tweet Tell Us What You Think Login to submit a comment Comments appearing on this website are the opinion of the comment writer and do not represent the opinion of the Wellington Advertiser Comments that attack other individuals or are offensive unsubstantiated or otherwise inappropriate will be removed You must register or log in in order to post a comment
