Canby theater group sets summer stage
After being halted by the pandemic, then needing to find a new location for summer 2022 due to building projects, the Canby Community Theatre is back.
The stage is set and the production is ready to present "Wiley and the Hairy Man" Aug. 4-6 and 11-13 at 6:30 p.m. each night at the Flower Farmer.
"After the 25th anniversary show, Canby Community Theatre had big plans," Craig Holbrook, the show's director, said. "Then, like the rest of the world, Covid-19 stopped us in our tracks. But now we're back and ready to put on a show for our community."
Holbrook described this "show about facing your fears will keep you on the edge of your seat, and bring the inner child out of anybody."
Normally, Canby Community Theatre performs at the FAC on the high school campus, but Holbrook said rigging inspections and repairs required the group find a new venue. They did that at the Flower Farmer on North Holly Street.
Tickets are free for the performances, but donations will be accepted, with the production being self-funded this year, according to Holbrook. There is also a GoFundMe on the group's Facebook page.
