Peninsula Players’ latest show opened last weekend

The Peninsula Players opened their latest show

The latest production from Peninsula Players opened last weekend at Muse Winery in North Saanich.

The production, titled Cirque du Chablis, was written by Sasha Moriarty-Schieven and is directed by Gerald and Chantelle Schieven.

‘The play is centred around a ragtag band of circus freaks who have a hankering for something more than cleaning up after elephants and biting heads off of chickens,” said a release from the Players.

“When former starlet Serafina offers them their own vaudeville show, they leap at the chance. But between a scheming ringmaster, a secretive starlet and a lovesick cheese mogul, the freaks soon learn that life’s not always a barrel of monkeys.”

The play opened on July 19 and will run for seven performances at Muse Winery (11195 Chalet Road) until Aug. 17.

For the evening performances Bistro Muse will also be offering a special Harvest Table buffet (reservations required.)

Tickets for all performances are $25 per person and can be purchased by calling 250-656-2552.
