Lampan Community Theater put on its first performance of Night at the Lamp on Thursday night. Money raised from the play will go back into their local legion branch.
The play tells the story of a rock and roll café that is slated for demolition however a group of volunteers come together and try to save the café. It features classic rock tunes and a lot of laughs.
Night at the Lamp was written, produced, and directed by Maureen Ulrich.
Opening night was a success with a packed house, said Ulrich.
“The legion hall isn’t big. So, 105 people can really make it feel full.”
Ulrich said the cast did a great job working together as a team and making sure to stay on cue.
There were some challenges as one of the performers was unable to sing her number, but they were able to get creative using an Alanis Morisette song and lip-syncing to cover it up.
“It was just a fabulous night, the audience seemed to really enjoy it.”
This is an annual fundraiser for the Lampman Legion, that helps the branch run throughout the year.
They performed Murder at the Opry last year.
The support of Lampan, and Estevan as well as all surrounding communities doesn't go unnoticed.
“People are so receptive and warm, and we appreciate their support of our Legion.”
Night at the Lamp has another show on tonight, and their final performance is on Saturday.
