The City of Surrey's new Frontier Tale Blazers show re-enacts Surrey life from past centuries.
The cast will perform at this weekend's Fusion Festival in Holland Park and other local events this summer.
Actors represent the city as it was between 1872 and 1945 in a live and interactive stage show that also features musical performances. They portray such notable settlers as Reeve T.J. Sullivan, carpenter Eric Anderson, Dr. Fredrick Sinclair, teacher Mary Jane Shannon and newspaper editor Stan McKinnon.
"They have performance scripts, but they also do improvisation," said Jacqueline O'Donnell of Surrey Heritage Services. "They've done a lot of research on the characters to re-enact that character authentically."
The troupe will also appear at Cloverdale Blueberry Festival (Aug. 4), Dancin' in the Barn at Historic Stewart Farm (Aug. 11) and at Surrey Museum (Aug. 18).
The Frontier Tale Blazers show was launched at Surrey's Canada Day event July 1 in Cloverdale.
