Canterbury Summer Theatre will present its first-ever virtual production, “Why Cupid Came to Earl’s Court,” streaming live online at 7:30 p.m. on Sept. 18, 19, 25, and 26. Audience members will be able to enjoy the show from the comfort of their own homes via a link provided free of charge by the theatre.

“Why Cupid Came to Earl’s Court” is a one-act romantic comedy, written by Cosmo Hamilton  and directed by Canterbury Artistic Director Ray Scott Crawford.

The cast includes Cason Smith, Jeroen Kales, Matt Carroll, Lauren Holland, Lari Leber, Anne Brown, and Joshua Frazier. Rona Leber is costume designer; David White, technical consultant; Cason Smith, editor; and John Medlin, stage manager. Kales, Carroll, Holland, Leber, and Medlin are all Canterbury alumni, either from earlier Resident Companies or from earlier BPCC collaborations.

The show is being presented in association with Bossier Parish Community College, continuing a 15-year tradition of co-productions between the two institutions.

Artistic Director Crawford said “Cupid’ is “performed in the spirit of “The Importance of Being Earnest” or “Charley’s Aunt,” pitting the wits of all against each other for a light-hearted comment of the roles of the sexes in society. The forty-minute script features a cast of seven, each from his or her own home, presenting this delightful comedy in the virtual world of Zoom.”

For access to the live stream link, visit or the Canterbury Summer Theatre Facebook page.

Donations to Canterbury are welcome, and may be made through PayPal, located on the home page of the Canterbury website.

Audience members are encouraged to join the production link 10 to 15 minutes prior to the 7:30 pm showtime to allow for any connection difficulties. A pre-show slide and music will be provided prior to the beginning of the show.
