The staff of Kootenay Boundary Regional Hospital (KBRH) delivered another evening of potty humour, naughty humour, song and dance, and the occasional smirking jab at stereotypes for their Enema Awards variety show at the Charles Bailey Theatre in Trail Saturday night.
The eclectic cast entertained the sold-out, 700-plus crowd with a series of playfully performed skits and routines covering many of the typically unmentionable aspects of working in the health care industry, often made all the more enjoyable because of the normally reserved medical staff hamming it up for the audience.
Highlights of the show included Dr. Stephanie Cameron garbed in dominatrix latex and boots leading a group with strategically placed musical bedpans, an ensemble of surgeons, GP’s, nurses and therapists, allowing their super hero fantasies to come to life, a short skit with nurse, Kim Brown, playing a frighteningly believable, valley-girl obstetrician, and Mayor of Rossland, Greg Granstrom, getting a very public lesson in the proper steps from the Boomtown Garter Girls.
The two-hour show kept the audience in stitches and once again brought out the best in the, normally staid, local medical community’s black humour.
