It’s hard to beat a Norm Foster play.
The Kaatza Lakeside Players have presented his work before and have again dipped into his repertoire for The Great Kooshog Lake Hollis McCauley Fishing Derby.
Leslie Lewis Street (Sienna), Graham Fielding (James Bell, AKA Stranger), Terry Pool (Kirk Douglas), Laurel Crawford (Melanie Morningside), and Erika Blume (Rhonda Bofkowski) make up the small but capable cast of this fun jaunt into the backwoods.
It’s supposed to be a taking place in a little town on a lake in Ontario but it could just as easily be happening in a little town on a lake near you.
Foster always interweaves several plot lines together, tucking them in and out when necessary. There’s the unexpected, of course, but sometimes the expected is even more fun. After a while, everyone in the audience was waiting eagerly for sexy Rhonda to be revealed as the owner of yet another business in the village.
Theatregoers may not believe it, but more than 30 people worked behind the scenes to bring Kooshog Lake to life at Centennial Hall, proving again, if it needed it, that theatre is part of the fabric of life at Cowichan Lake.
