Arts Club Theatre Vancouver Presents White Christmas 2011

We were so fortunate again this year to have my brother, Mark Weatherley, and sister-in-law, Monique Lund, home for Christmas.  Mark and Monique live far, far away in Stratford, Ontario.  However, they are both actors, and came back to Vancouver to star in A White Christmas, at the Stanley Theatre in Vancouver this season. Here are some photos Monique was kind enough to take "behind the scenes" of the cast of White Christmas.

Monique plays the part of Judy, one of the main characters, and Mark plays Sheldrake and Ezekial.  Monique definitely takes the house down with a tap number she does, where she dances on top of a piano!  She also has some wonderful costume changes, wearing stunning 1950's vintage dresses.

The shows are all sold out, and the show will be ending soon, but keep checking back, as the Arts Club Theatre runs some amazing live theatre shows.  Also, the Arts Club Theatre only receives 50% of its operating revenue from ticket sales.  Therefore, it's important to make a charitable donation to the Arts Club Theatre.

Oh, I love this photo of my brother, Mark, pointing out "Exit Stage Right" - get it?!!!

Sally, this is so wonderful that you can see the performance and than go behind the stage. Costumes are beautiful. When you say Exit Stage Right do you really mean left? LOL

BTW I really like your blog profile pictures and the wallpaper.

Mark - Thanks so much - the musical was great and all sold out!

Fred - Actually, I wasn't allowed back stage, but Monique was able to take photos of the event - and she did a great job!

Roger - It's been so wonderful to have them in Vancouver over the holidays.  And it's never a dull moment with two Thespians in the family!

Valerie - That's so sweet of you.  Well, let's put it this way...  if I had to make a living as an accountant or a scientist, I think I'd have to throw myself off a cliff!

Joanna - Aren't the costumes amazing?  Monique also wears a black & white dress that's to die for! 

Kim - If you're not stamping your feet and humming along, then you must be a Cyborg!  This is a great show and the music (Irving Berlin) is wonderful.

Shar - I knew you'd "get it"!

Anna - Ha ha - sometimes I get mixed up myself...  Exit Stage Right?... Exit Stage Left?...  Glad you like the wallpaper - I jut have to remember to change it again after New Year's is over!

Sally, you're hobnobbing with the thespians over the Christmas season, sounds like a blast. I'm not sure that your brother is pointing at the Exit Stage Right sign at all, I think he's giving the thumbs up sign because he made it to the men's room in time.

Oh how much talent can one family have?  So very cool!!!  I just love vintage dresses.  The "Exit Stage Right",... clearly your brother has the same witty sense of humor you do as well!  Hope you have a most wonderful New Years!

Hi Sally - your Blog looks fantastic - with the sparkly background and header! My sister and niece (who also live in Vancouver) would have been thrilled to be behind the scenes in 'A White Christmas', as they both love acting too.

Happy New Year to you!!
