Our Story

Yellow Point Drama Group—the second oldest theatre group in BC—got its start in the early 1950s when former opera singer, leading director of drama, and elocution teacher, Anne Mossman moved to Yellow Point from Vancouver. Her enthusiasm for the dramatic arts was contagious and she soon enlisted a nucleus of Cedar and Yellow Point locals to produce YPDG’s first season comprised of three one-act plays: Waltz Time, Dear Departed, and Which Way is the Way to Boston?. The trio of plays went on to win best acting and best directed awards at various Vancouver Island drama festivals.

Fresh from its success, the amateur troupe went on to officially form Yellow Point Drama Group in 1953, and in the 60 years since, has marked a number of successful theatrical milestones, winning numerous festival awards along the way for the quality of its acting, direction, costumes and set design.

TOUCH and GO

a British Farce by Derek Benfield

Show runs: April 7 to April 22, 2017

When Brian takes up jogging, his wife Hilary is not surprised. She has often told him he should exercise more after all the business lunches he consumes. But when Brian is ostensibly running round the park, he is, in fact, spending a couple of hours with his girl friend, Wendy, in his good friend George’s flat. The arrangement works well for some time, for while Brian is visiting Wendy, helpful George knows that there is no danger of his own dalliance being discovered; for the object of his affection is Brian’s wife, Hilary! It is all plain sailing until George’s wife Jessica returns too soon from a business trip to America and puts the cat among the pigeons.

Directed by Wendy Wearne and Joanne Rowland
