New West student stars in The Fantasticks on White Rock stage

The White Rock Players' Club brings the musical to the stage April 12 to 30.

A New Westminster Secondary School student is stepping into the spotlight with the White Rock Players’ Club.

Scotia Browner — fresh off her star turn as Princess Fiona in the NWSS production of Shrek the Musical — now stars as Luisa in the club’s production of The Fantasticks, onstage April 12 to 30.

The Fantasticks is a funny and romantic musical about a boy, a girl (Luisa) and their two fathers who try to keep them apart.

Playing opposite Scotia is Oliver Gold as the boy in question, Matt.

The show also has a couple of other New Westminster connections, with former New West resident Reginald Pillay in the cast as Luisa’s father, and Gower Roberts as the production’s lighting designer.

Scotia also serves as assistant choreographer and dance captain.

The production is directed by Kerry O’Donovan.
