Stereotype High

By Jeffrey Harr
Directed by Julia Body

The Geek. The Jock. The Stoner. The Slut. The Loser. Once you have been given a label, you are stuck with it, especially in high school. In a series of interlaced, touching and comedic vignettes, these “stereotypical” teens fight tooth and nail to reinvent themselves. This play shows that there is nothing more powerful than the teen who stands along, proud of who he or she is. Whether you are in high school now or it is a distant memory, you will relate to the time of insecurity and the search for identity that Stereotype High reveals. You will laugh out loud as you recognize yourself, your friends or maybe your grandchildren.

Presented by special arrangement with Theatrefolk. * Contains Adult Themes *  

After You

 

April 28 – May 13, 2017

Evening Shows at 7:30 pm
Matinees at 1:30 pm

Thursdays are Pay What You Can

After You

By Dave Carley
Directed by James Bowlby & Peter Blacklock

The island cottage is a grand and crumbling place full of memories, both good and bad. Adele has been ravaged by a stroke and can no longer move about her beloved island – except in her dreams. Jean is not well either, but is determined that her cousin’s last summer on the lake will end with grace. As Jean administers Seconal to her cousin, their memories continually invade – and most particularly they recall the summer of 1938 and the young man who was, in their minds, the “fork in the road,” the one who determined the paths of their lives.

After You is a memory play without memories; the characters live simultaneously in the past and present, and time intermingles freely.

After You is presented by special arrangement with Playwrights Guild of Canada.

Audience Feedback

Here are some of the things people are saying about Mary Poppins:

Mary Poppins was FANTASTIC!!! An excellent show and effort by all involved…we are lucky to have such great theatre in our community. Way to go!!!!

Awesome performance last night! What an accomplishment! Well done to all — actors, stage crew, lighting, construction and all the other myriad behind-the-scenes jobs that go into creating the magic of a show like that.

We, along with our two grandchildren, ages 3 1/2 and 6, were absolutely enthralled throughout the whole December 4th matinee show. Having attended many live theatre performances over the years, we can say, hands down, that this is without a doubt one of the finest productions we have ever seen.
