Southwest residents enjoyed relatable comedy with Swift Current Little Theatre's 'Weekend Comedy', the second-weekend drawing in around 170 people.

Great Plains College in Swift Current hosted the spring production which ran for five nights; on April 5 and 6, then again on April 11, 12, and 13.

Kurtis Bakanec, president of Swift Current Little Theatre, was thrilled to see the turnout and the positive reactions from community members. 

"We just concluded our spring production comedy," said Bakanec. "By all accounts, it was very well received and our crowds were very good."

The show, written by Sam and Jeanne Bobrick, depicted a story of an older couple and a younger couple who end up having to stay the weekend at the same cabin, leading to a down-to-earth comedy.

Local actors, Karen Schommer, Bruce Rayner, Breanna Clark, and Adam Unvoas starred in 'Weekend Comedy', making it a hilarious yet commendable show. 

"I also want to thank my co-director, Cara Diamond," he said. "Our group in general just puts in a lot of hours to make these shows a success." 

"These shows don't happen without a lot of support from volunteers." 

The performances had a runtime of three hours and doors opened at 6:30 p.m. with the show beginning at 8 p.m. 

"We're always looking for people to come help us out, both on stage and off of it," added Bakanec.
