Curtain closes on Murrayville Players

After three years, three productions, and a great deal of fun, the curtain is closing on Langley's Murrayville Players.

The community theatre troupe has decided to disband, citing a dwindling membership.

Perhaps the MVP were a victim of its own success. As time went on, members sought out other groups, expanding their experience in theatre, artistic director Kate Major said.

"We are thrilled that they did branch out," she said wrote in a recent letter explaining the decision. "It makes the theatre community that much better."

The remaining members plan to keep in touch. Looking ahead, it's possible that Surrey Little Theatre will launch a group for actors aged 55 and over, providing a new avenue for members who want to keep acting and involved in the theatre community.

The decision to strike the set on the group means the defunct amateur acting group is looking for a new home for various items of scenery and movable props.

"We want to get to get them out of storage by the end of February," Major said.
