BC theatre group brings their original hit, Somebody Loves You Mr. Hatch, to Chilliwack

The award-winning Axis Theatre group is performing Somebody Loves You Mr. Hatch on Mar. 25

This spring break, give the kids an afternoon of playful theatre with Somebody Loves You Mr. Hatch! Brought to you by Vancouver’s award-winning Axis Theatre, who have been amusing and inspiring audiences for over 40 years, this show is the perfect way to spend a Sunday afternoon and is sure to entertain the entire family.

Telling the story of the unassuming Mr. Hatch, who leads a predictable and ordered life until an unexpected surprise turns his point of view upside down, Somebody Loves You Mr. Hatch will put a smile on everybody’s face.

On Valentine’s Day, Mr. Hatch receives a candy-filled heart along with a note saying, “Somebody loves you.” This small gesture symbolizes a complete upheaval for the quiet Mr. Hatch, who finds himself beginning to enjoy all the pleasant parts of life he previously ignored: making friends, eating new and delicious food, and beginning the search for his secret admirer.

A fun and tender play with an important message, Somebody Loves You Mr. Hatch is a heartwarming exploration of the huge impact a small dose of kindness can have for anybody, turning strangers into friends, adding colour to a bland outlook, and even completely transforming a life.

Axis Theatre brings an irresistible charm to each of their productions, and with Somebody Loves You Mr. Hatch, their knack for delivering unique theatrical experiences is front and centre, pulling you into a laugh-filled journey of one puppet’s transformation from wooden-heartedness into lively, life-affirming cheer.

The theatre company’s whimsical and wonderful storytelling features puppetry, singalongs, and an entertaining touch everyone will love. Over its long and rich history, Axis Theatre has produced over 50 original works, and has won 16 awards for creativity and originality in the Vancouver theatre scene.

Somebody Loves You Mr. Hatch is coming to the Chilliwack Cultural Centre on March 25, at 2:00 p.m., and tickets, which cost $12, can be purchased at the Centre Box Office, online at chilliwackculturalcentre.ca, or by calling 604-391-SHOW(7469).
