The Breakfast Club comes to life in Fort St. John

Five local actors and actresses play five teenagers stuck in detention on a Saturday. They’re forced to endure an entire day with each other, and end up finding out they’re a lot more alike than they thought.

Directed by Ted Sloan, this version of John Hughes’ popular 1985 film is unique as it takes place in its real
setting: a high school library. True to script, it has some former real life teachers in it as well, like Director of Instruction Stephen Petrucci and Superintendent Dave Sloan.

The show is also one of two shows that the Spectacular Chair Factory is submitting to the Peace River
Zone Theatre Festival, May 16-18, with hopes of moving on to B.C. Mainstage, the province’s largest amateur
theatre festival.

The run of the show is May 3, 4, 8, 9, and 10 at the North Peace Secondary School Library, with tickets
by donation and first come first serve. To reserve a seat, please email breakfastclubfsj@gmail.com.
