Hairy Tease Productions' Sylvia will make you howl with laughter!

(Click on the poster for a larger version.)

If you've ever loved a dog, don't miss Hairy Tease Productions' presentation of the Broadway comedy Sylvia from Tuesday, March 29, through Saturday, April 2, at Théâtre l'Escaouette, 170 Botsford Street, Moncton (855-0001).

Written by A.R. Gurney, Sylvia is a hilarious play centred around a four-legged, salty-mouthed home-wrecking Labradoodle named Sylvia who bounds into the life of a middle-aged couple and turns it upside down. Sarah Jessica Parker originated the Broadway role of Sylvia to rave critical reviews.

"I can honestly say the character of Sylvia is one of the funniest theatrical roles ever created for an actress... and Jane Messervier nails it!" says Hairy Tease director Mike Granville of Messervier, a Moncton teacher who plays the title role.

"Lawren Campbell's three roles as macho dog owner, uppity society matron and an androgynous psychotherapist are pure outrageous fun, while Rhonda Whittaker and Wayne Fairchild are wonderfully real as the dog-besieged couple."

Because the fictional Sylvia was rescued as a stray, Hairy Tease Productions is devoting part of its lobby space to photos and information about real-life Greater Moncton SPCA pets available for adoption. Patrons are also welcome to make donations to the Greater Moncton SPCA while at the show.

Tickets are going fast, especially for the Friday and Saturday shows. Tickets are $15 (plus service charge) and are now on sale at all Moncton Ticketing Network outlets as well as Read's Newsstand in Riverview.
