Upcoming Events

2018/19 Season:

September 21-23
Savannah Sipping Cluba comedy by Jessie Jones, Nicholas Hope, and Jamie Wooten – Four unique, mid-life women, unknown to one another, find themselves living in Savannah and looking for a way to “jump start” their lives again. Fate, and an impromptu happy hour, brings them together, and they find a bond made up of determination, misadventures, renewed enthusiasm for life, and shared liquid refreshment.

November 16-18
Waiting for the Parade by John Murrell – Set in Calgary during WWII, Waiting for the Parade tells the story of five women, le behind while their husbands and sons went to war, who did their part to serve the war effort by knitting socks, providing munitions, and dealing with food shortages, and who learned to “keep smiling through” until the boys got home. is production was selected to honour Remembrance Day.

March 22-24
Alabama Story by Kenneth Jones – A simple children’s book called e Rabbit’s Wedding, in which a white rabbit marries a black rabbit, becomes the seed of social and political controversy in 1959 Montgomery, Alabama. Based on actual events, Alabama Story shows the determination of real-life Emily Reed, the state librarian at the time, against the real-life segregationist senator, E. W. Higgins, who demands that the book be pulled from library shelves for promoting interracial marriage. Many themes in the story still resonate today.

June 7-9
Trying by Joanna Glass – Sarah Schorr, from Saskatchewan, is the latest in a long and unsuccessful line of personal secretaries for retired Francis Biddle, the former United States Attorney General under President Franklin D. Roosevelt, and Chief Judge of the Nuremberg trials. Told from the perspective of the then 25-year-old assistant, the story is a humorous and touching look at issues of aging and the breakdown of communication over divisions of age and class. It is based on Glass’ own experiences as Biddle’s assistant from 1967-68.
