Showcasing the music of legendary Broadway composer Stephen Schwartz, this strong book musical had its Canadian premiere in 2014 and proved so popular that sold-out audiences clamoured for more. A return engagement was presented from Oct. 28 to Nov. 8, 2015.
Schwartz’ songs fit flawlessly into this compelling story, strengthening it and moving it forward in multi-layered and thought–provoking ways.
Once again, Snapshots stars some of Vancouver’s top talent, gathered this time at Presentation House Theatre in North Vancouver.
“If a picture is worth a thousand words, Snapshots is worth a thousand praises.” – VancouverScape.com
Snapshots takes place in the attic of Sue and Dan, a couple whose marriage has fallen apart after 30 years together. Sue, who is about to leave her husband, has gone to the attic to retrieve a hidden suitcase when Dan unexpectedly comes home early. During this encounter, a box of photographs falls to the floor and leads them to relive the memories of their past selves captured in the snapshots.
“…There is a fluidity to the piece that is at times astounding, as the actors move from one vignette to the next, or even at times cleverly interact between the ages.” – VancouverPresents.com
WRS Productions’ presentation of Snapshots featured six strong singers with the equally impressive acting talents needed to carry off a complex tale of life, love and longing.
