When Ferris reluctantly agreed to look after his sister’s seedy country inn during her holiday, he did not foresee the wild comings and goings that were to burst upon him on a single spring evening.

To Kill a Mockingbird

Written By: Christopher Sergel
Directed By: Jeff Dakin
Produced By: Todd Westcott

To Kill A Mockingbird tells the story of Scout Finch, as she and her family endure an odyssey through the fires of racial prejudice in 1935 Alabama. A coming-of-age story as she and her older brother, Jem, witness their principled father, Atticus, take a dangerous stand against intolerance and injustice. Based on the 1961 Pulitzer Prize winning novel by Harper Lee, this masterpiece of modern literature is as relevant today as it was when Ms. Lee penned her unforgettable tale. "You never know someone,” Atticus tells Scout, "until you step inside their skin and walk around a little”.

A compelling and compassionate show.

Twelfth Night

Written By: William Shakespeare
Directed By: John Gundy
Produced By: Julia Loncke

Twelfth Night is a celebration of romantic love with elements common to Elizabethan romantic comedy. With mistaken identity, separated twins, and gender-crossing disguise, the plot revolves around overcoming obstacles to "true” love. In the midst of a love triangle the play is placed within a "festive atmosphere” in which three couples are brought together happily. Twelfth Night’s light-hearted gaiety is fitting for a play named for the Epiphany - the last night of the 12 Days of Christmas. As spoken by the Duke Orsino "If music be the food of love, play on;”

A celebration of love and gaiety.

The Cemetery Club

Written By: Ivan Menchell
Directed By: Joe Brenner
Produced By: Richard Ouellette

A delightfully funny comedy about three widows who meet routinely to commiserate about their late husbands’ attributes and shortcomings. With playful zingers and one-line gags (think Steel Magnolias meet the Golden Girls) their enduring friendship helps them find answers to life questions like "can you have a second chance at love?” You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, and then you’ll laugh some more. The Cemetery Club, a play with an important message: "life may change, but love will always remain”.

A heart-warming, funny, poignant play.
