Stettler welcomes Accidental Humour Co. March 28, 2022 @ 1:00pm

Two former area residents, Brent Felzien (from Forestburg) and Kimberlee Stadelmann (from Stettler), will be back on Sunday, April 3, at the PAC with Accidental Humour Company's (AHC) newest production; "The Flying Detective." Brent is the playwright and cinematographer, and Kimberlee is the costume designer.

Brent, Kimberlee, and the other core members of AHC, including William Banfield, Clifford Kelly, and Neil LeGranduer, met at the University of Lethbridge. Their love of theatre and movies inspired them to create a company that bridges the gap between stage and film.

The company members come from small towns around Alberta, and one of their mandates is to bring work created by Alberta artists to rural areas. AHC recognizes that their training and love of the arts began in communities such as Stettler. They show aspiring artists that it is possible to create, work and live in Alberta. AHC has brought earlier productions to the Wm E Hay School and has facilitated workshops with Darren Fleischhacker's drama students.

Stettler Variety Showcase (SVS) is offering "The Flying Detective" with two shows on April 3rd at the PAC at 2:00 pm and 7:30 pm. (Tickets are available at Grate Kitchen Shoppe or the door.) This show is based on a true story, and it is a historical adventure set in Alberta in 1919. An Edmonton Police Officer is shot and killed in the line of duty. When the suspect escapes on the train, the Edmonton police hire Wop May, the WWI fighter pilot, to help them catch and find the murder suspect. The filming portion has scenes featuring the Alberta Prairie Steam Train.

Kimberlee is personally thrilled to be working with SVS to bring "The Flying Detective" to Stettler. She loved attending concerts and performances as an SVS season ticket holder, and this is a full-circle moment for her.
