Once in a Lifetime, the opening production of the University of The Fraser Valley theatre department’s 2012/13 season, is a comedy from George S. Kaufman and Moss Hart.

The story follows the progress of a trio of failing vaudevillians, who attempt to boost their chances of employment by working as elocutionists in a 1920s Hollywood that is in the process of switching from silent movies to the talkies.

The show is a full-blown extravaganza, filled with a host of crazy characters and farcical situations.

Director Ian Fenwick has assembled a large cast of UFV theatre students for this production.

Performers playing major roles include: Danielle Warmenhoven as May Daniels, Eli Funk as Jerry Hyland, Karliana DeWolff as Susan Walker, Thomas Smith as George Lewis, Melissa Regamble as Mrs Walker and John Carroll as Mr. Glogauer.

Other performers, all playing multiple roles, include:  Rebekah Brisco, Katherine Beswick, Melissa Harris, Haley Raddysh, Shannon Hayes, Alana Cook, Rae MacEachern-Eastwood, Rene Weisgerber, Corryn Ginter, Gabriel Kirkley, Liam Archer, Kirk McFarlane, Ron Jackson, Tim Howe, Nial Harrison-Morry, Luke Stevens, Danny Campbell and Julian MacPherson.

Once in a Lifetime opens Friday, Nov. 9 at 7.30 p.m. in the theatre on the Chilliwack North campus at  45635 Yale Rd. It runs until Nov. 25. For tickets and times call 604-795-2814 or visit www.ufv.ca/theatre.
