Roaring like the Twenties

A Cloverdale variety show troupe will be entertaining in support of Langley Lodge.

Susie and The Versatiles are Puttin' On the Ritz.

Cloverdale’s very own variety show act – Susie and the Versatiles – will help recreate the Roaring Twenties Saturday night in Langley.

Puttin’ On the Ritz also features a barbershop quartet, and a live speakeasy band.

“We have quite the night arranged for our guests,” said Denni Bonetti, one of the organizers. “The Roaring Twenties were a time of wealth and prosperity, of clandestine excess and partying.”

Although the raucous decade has a reputation for bootleg liquor and good times, Puttin’ on the Ritz “will be a classy dinner affair,” Bonetti added.

There will also be prizes for best costumes at the fundraising event, which also includes a reception and dinner.

To promote the evening, Susie and the Versatiles members Peter Maarsman and Ken Marjoram dressed up like Keystone Cops and “arrested” Langley City mayor Peter Fassbender during a council meeting last week.

Puttin’ on the Ritz is presented Oct. 1 at the Coast Hotel and Convention Centre in Langley.

The evening is a fundraiser in support of Langley Lodge.

Guests are encouraged to dress up in pin stripe suits or flapper attire. Costume rental store Hallowville Manor

has offered to donate rental proceeds back to Langley Lodge.

Tickets are available by calling 604-880-6752 or by emailing foundation@langleylodge.org.
