Porlier – Quinto Wedding
September 2011 – South Thompson Inn, Kamloops, BC
I am writing this reference to highly endorse the theatrical talent of Vance Schneider, Artistic Director for The Laughing Stock Theatre Society, and the fine group of actors under his direction. My husband and I were recently married in Kamloops, BC, September 2011. As we have always been enthralled by the 1920’s era, we wanted to offer our wedding guests a memorable evening of ad lib, interactive and skit theatre relevant to this time period. Upon our first meeting with Vance, my husband and I were infused with a sense of anticipation, excitement, and intrigue around the creative possibilities offered up by Vance. He presented as a highly competent, organized, and passionate advocate for community theatre, and so my husband and I felt confident that Vance’s creative fervor was compatible with our vision of how we wanted our 1920’s themed evening to unfold. Consequently, our guests were dazzled, delighted, and captivated by the zany cast of dynamic characters that took part in our wedding celebration. They provided a fun-filled and hilarious evening of entertainment that began with a speakeasy party, progressed to a gangster face off after dinner, and was capped off with an unforgettable rendition of the Charleston, headed by a priest and several monks. My husband and I are deeply indebted to Vance Schneider, for recruiting a group of wonderfully talented and ambitious actors, who gave us, and our guests, an experience we will never forget. My husband and I, along with our guests, praise Vance, who is clearly adept at writing, directing, and acting, and the fantastic efforts of the actors, with a standing ovation!
