Norm Foster Comedy to Close out Season at Magnus

THUNDER BAY – ENTERTAINMENT – Magnus Theatre closes out its 2016-2017 season with Norm Foster’s Here on the Flight Path. Set on adjoining balconies in a big city apartment building, the play follows John Cummings (played by Stuart Dowling) as he interacts with three women, Fay, Angel and Gwen (all played by Amy Sellors), who become his neighbours over a three and a half year period.

“What an exciting season it’s been here at Magnus Theatre. We’ve had everything from a jukebox musical in Million Dollar Quartet, to most recently, literary drama with Of Human Bondage,” says Thom Currie about the 2016-2017 Mainstage Season. “Norm Foster has provided, consistently, plays that Thunder Bay love.  A perfect way to end the season. “

For the final show of the season, Dowling plays a ‘back porch philosopher’ who – over the span of three and a half years – has conversations with three neighbors from his balcony.  One is an aspiring country singer, one is a divorced homemaker, and the other indulges in the world’s oldest profession.

The play sees a pair of Magnus veterans returning to the stage. Dowling, an award winning performer who has performed across Canada, is a longtime favourite of Magnus audiences, having appeared in Driving Miss Daisy and Night of the Living Dead.  Sellors, herself an award-winning actor who has appear ed in theatres across Canada (including multiple seasons at the Stratford Festival) appeared at Magnus in Looking and Don’t Hug Me.

Bringing the adjoining balconies to life will be Set Designer Doug Robinson, Lighting Designer Kirsten Watt and Costume Designer Lisa Loveday. Gillian Jones returns as Stage Manager.

Don’t mess this show that the Montreal Gazette said “Keeps audiences in fits in laughter” and the Halifax Herald called “A well crafted exploration of modern-day relationships.” Here on the Flight Path opens Monday April 10th and closes on Saturday April 22nd, with the Gala performance taking place on Thursday April 13th.
