Delta Players Theatre’s inaugural presentation of Ordinary Days promises to be anything but ordinary.

This production is a great opportunity for a day or night out to see one of those live performances you keep promising yourself you’ll go to more of.

Delta Players Theatre is an up-and-coming theatre company based in South Delta, whose goal is to make theatre accessible to all.

“We strive to create a compassionate, welcoming, educational, and most importantly, fun space for local thespians to work and play,” said Delta Players founder Ann Matterson.

Matterson and Michael Kirk, the director of the production, are alumni of Delta Youth Theatre, Delta Secondary School and Studio West. They have remained active in teaching and production team roles in Delta including recent productions of Footloose (Delta Secondary) and Peter Pan Jr. (Studio West).

Matterson and Kirk have been active in community theatres across the Lower Mainland, including recent productions in White Rock, New Westminster and Chilliwack.

In April, Matterson was the choreographer and both Matterson and Kirk were cast in Newbury Arts Concepts’ production of Jesus Christ Superstar. Also cast in that production, and rounding out the cast of Ordinary Days, are the very talented Aidan Sharpe and Harriet Dykstra. Sharpe is also an integral part of the production team, leading vocals as the music director for the production.

Ordinary Days follows the story of four young New Yorkers navigating their everyday lives. On their journey through hope, stress, love and loss, they discover their lives intersect in ways they never expected. A captivating four-person song cycle is sure to leave audiences appreciating the small dots in their bigger pictures and finding the beauty in ordinary things.

Ordinary Days runs May 27 and 28 at 3 and 8 p.m. Tickets are $25 and can be purchased at this link.
