Default Ron Pederson Update

OK I know what I said but...
here's alittle tid-bit of information for you all . Ron's in Edmonton working on a play and it sounds likeit will be great .


Teatro La Quindicina Presents

A Grand Time in the Rapids


Plucky Pederson Pilots Cornish and Haslam Through Treacherous Lemoine Rapids !!

Following his third season as a regular cast member on the Fox Television Network's MAD-TV, Ron Pederson is just tickled to be back in Edmonton and rejoining his Teatro La Quindicina colleagues for another sparkling summer production at the Varscona Theatre. This time it's Stewart Lemoine's brand new madcap Michigan farce-up, A Grand Time in the Rapids, opening July 7.
Joining Ron in his first stage appearance since last season's acclaimed Shockers Delight! are Teatro's resident matinee idol Jeff Haslam and in a decidedly overdue Teatro debut, the beguiling British bombshell Belinda Cornish.

A Grand Time in the Rapids is a zaftig zigzag down the white waters of gracious living, set in Grand Rapids, Michigan in 1959. Thalia Cumberland (Miss Cornish), a sleek and comely widow from across the pond, enlists the aid of etiquette expert Ted Todd (Mr. Pederson) in finessing a potentially indecorous encounter with her new paramour Boyd Mayhew (Mr. Haslam). Things are proceeding splendidly until... suddenly they just aren't. In the immediately escalating mayhem, doors are slammed, drinks go flying, everybody sings a bit, and no one quite manages to stay fully dressed. It's an exhilarating thrill-ride, surpassing even such previous Teatro screwball romps as On the Banks of the Nut, Skirts on Fire, and Vidalia in unbridled velocity.

Author Stewart Lemoine also directs, while costume designer Leona Brausen kits out the cast in an elegant array of 50's finery and clothing-optional options. Set designer Marissa Kochanski creates an apartment with many doors but few exits, and lighting designer Mike Takats ensures that everyone is fetchingly illuminated even in their darkest hour. Stage Manager Rachel Rudd revels in her role as the person most likely to know what just happened.

A Grand Time in the Rapids plays at The Varscona Theatre (10329 83rd
Avenue) from
July 7-23. Performances are Tuesday through Saturday at 8pm, with matinees on Saturdays at 2pm.

Tickets are $18.00 for Adults and $15.00 for Students, Seniors, and Equity Members.
Tuesday evening and Saturday matinee performances are Pay-What-You-Can!
Plus: There's an additional 2-for-1 Night on Friday, July 8!

For reservations, call 433-3399. Voice box #2.
Tickets also available through Tix on-the-Square at 420-1757 or www.tixonthesquare.ca

For interviews call Ian Rowe, at 907-5671

Default ROCKY

I'm not here much anymore but here is a little update on what Ron is doing, he's in Winnipeg to play the part of Brad in The Rocky Horror on stage @ the Manitoba Theatre Centre. Then it's off to Toronto in the spring...

Oh Sick!!!! I can't wait until he comes to Toronto, he would be the 2nd MadTV cast member for me to see on stage. Is he doing Rocky Horror in Toronto too or is it another show?
