    Norman Davenport feels he was born in the wrong century. As he opens a brand new clothing store, disappointed because he feels forced to cater to more current tastes, he makes a wish that changes his life – and the lives of his two loyal employees – forever. This is a magical tale filled with lessons for us all.

    John Lennon was shot and killed on December 8, 1980 in front of his home, the Dakota. The following day, New Yorkers gathered in spontaneous vigils to mourn and pay tribute. McLure builds his play from the interactions of strangers, at times humorous, moving, or even menacing, as they struggle to understand the larger significance of the event.

    Tap your toes to more than thirty hits from the 50’s and 60’s as we meet a girl group singing at their high school prom. Ten years later, they return for the reunion to further reflect on their lives and loves with such classic hits as Lollipop, Mr. Sandman, Rescue Me, Heatwave, Dream Lover, and Sincerely.

    In Quartet, we meet Cecily, Reggie, and Wilfred, residents in a home for retired opera singers, as they prepare for the annual Verdi concert fundraiser. When Jean, Reggie’s ex arrives at the residence, she disrupts these preparations and, ever the diva, refuses to sing. At times poignant, very witty, and often hilarious, the show must go on…or perhaps not?

warshowby Peter Colley

Sept. 30, Oct. 1, 6, 7, 8*, 13, 14, 15*, 2011

This production traces a squad of Canadian soldiers, and the women in their lives, from the beginning of their enlistment, to the final victory of World War II. From the rambunctious comedy of their boot camp days, to chasing girls in England, to the terrors of D-Day, this play captures the essence of that era through humour, songs, and drama.

AngryMenby Sherman L. Sergel

Nov. 25, 26, 
Dec. 1, 2, 3*, 8, 9, 10*, 2011

A nineteen-year-old man has just stood trial for the fatal stabbing of his father. It looks like an open-and-shut case—until one of the jurors begins opening the others’ eyes to the facts. Each juror reveals his own character as the various testimonies are re-examined, the murder is re-enacted, and a new murder threat is born before their eyes! Tempers get short, arguments grow heated, and the jurors become twelve angry men. The final verdict, and how it is reached, add up to an exceptional piece of dramatic literature.

mem waterby Shelagh Stephenson

Feb. 10, 11, 16, 17, 18*, 23, 24, 25*, 2012

This touching and hugely entertaining comedy provides an insight into the lives of three sisters who are reunited for their mother’s funeral. This is a lovely piece, full of humour and heart, with a satisfying mixture of sardonic humour and deep emotion. Excellent jokes give way to festering resentments, booze and dope-fuelled hilarity to sudden glimpses of buried secrets and aching pain.

sunboysby Neil Simon

May 4, 5, 10, 11, 12*, 17, 18, 19*, 2012

This is Neil Simon’s “ham on wry”. Al and Willie as “Lewis and Clark” were top-billed vaudevillians for over forty years. Now they aren’t even speaking. When CBS requests them for a “History of Comedy” retrospective, a grudging reunion brings the two back together, along with a flood of memories, miseries, and laughs.
