By in Arts & Music

The Grey Wellington Theatre Guild (GWTG)  is putting the hilarious and heart-warming romantic comedy, Things My Mother Taught Me on stage this fall.

The Katherine DiSavino play will be directed by veteran Peggy Raftis and features a cast of talented local performers. The cast includes several experienced GWTG actors: Sean Reihl and Maija McCahery of Mount Forest, Patricia Von Westerholt and Bob Harron of Harriston, Jessica Reinhart of Clifford and Nick Hennig of Walkerton. Dave Fear of Drew, in his first role with the guild, rounds out the cast.

Things My Mother Taught Me is a tale of two young lovebirds who received some unexpected assistance from their parents on moving day.

Raftis says audiences will be able to relate to the situations in the play.

“It’s funny, but it’s believable. The humour is in the realism,” she said.

The show runs Nov. 17, 23, 24 & 25 at 7:30pm, Nov. 18 at 8pm (following the Harriston Santa Claus parade) & Nov. 19 at 2pm  at the Harriston Town Hall Theatre.

Tickets, $15, are available at Harriston Home Hardware and Walsh’s IDA in Mount Forest, or go to for information.
