Reflecting the enthusiasm of the previous night's audience, there was big crowd gathered to see the Detailed Adjudication for Whitby Courthouse Theatre's The Long Weekend. Sears And Switzer's adjudication had several of the show's performers on their feet, and true to the nature of the show itself, there were a lot of laughs all morning long.
The evening's performance, Waiting For Godot, came courtesy of QUONTA. Samuel Beckett's infamous play, about the unending wait for the man who never comes, is challenging production for any cast... and sometimes a challenge for the audience as well. But Gateway Theatre Guild's presentation kept the audience close and produced many a laugh, and the audience's appreciation was clear. Sears And Switzer gave the company kudos for their bold script selection and commended the choice to give the show a Canadian context. There was much praise for the performances, and a particular mention for the role of Boy played by the young Mackenzie Willis. I'm sure many in the audience are eager for the morning's adjudication to hear both the company and Sears And Switzer talk more about the show.
