Press Release

Asparagus Community Theatre is pleased to announce it’s Spring Production and Okanagan Zone Festival Entry, Sadie Flynn Comes to Big Oak, a full length comedy written by renowned Canadian Playwright Norm Foster. This delightfully funny play takes place in Millie’s Cabin, a small café and the hub of the rural community of Big Oak. It begins with the arrival of Sadie Flynn (played by Jeunesse Pearson), newly released from prison for murdering her husband. Hilarity and intrigue (and gossip) ensue as the Café owner Tom Shaw (Andrew Nadrofsky) his friend/business partner Orson Hubble  (Mark Trussell) and locals Bev Dupuis (Sheila Williams) and Rachel Blessington (Lois Archer-Duell) get to know Sadie and try to make sense of the increasing number of odd occurrences since her arrival. Norm Foster effortlessly captures the atmosphere of life in a small Canadian town.
The show is not quite a sequel, but a continuation of events in the sleepy town of Big Oak involving Tom and Orson, two beloved characters that ACT Patrons might well remember from one of our previous productions Ned Durango Comes to Big Oak.
The show runs May 1st- 4th and 8th-11th and tickets will go on sale April 1st at The Guy Next Door in Armstrong. Reservations can be made in person or over the phone at 250-546-0950
