From Theatre Orangeville
Written by Mark Crawford
Directed by David Nairn
Bonnie and her fiancé Brad, along with her Maid of Honour, Dee, are preparing for their Stag & Doe party to be held that evening in the Community Hall. Enter Mandy, another bride, directly from the hairdressers for her own wedding. The last night’s storm blew away the tent for Mandy’s wedding tent and she wants to bump the Stag & Doe and commandeer the Community Hall for her wedding reception. Finally a deal is made to have the wedding dinner first, then allow guests to stick around for the Stag & Doe. The caterer arrives and chaos ensues. This comedy is packed with great comedic timing and physical comedy. Sure to have you and your friends rolling in the aisles.
This is also a great play for any wedding party to attend! Remember Groups always get discounts!

Any Dream Will Do – The Songs of Andrew Lloyd Webber
July 12th – 16th , 2016
Written by and starring Adrian Marchuk (star of The Jersey Boys, The Light in the Piazza, Duddy Cravitz, and much more)
Adrian and his very talented cast of triple threats will tell the story of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s life and the incredible contribution this man has made to musical theatre. The draw of a Webber show is the endless familiar show-stopping hits, which this concert style production has with witty interludes and loads of interesting facts, barely stopping the momentum of hit song after hit song!
Adrian will also be performing in our February Valentines Cabaret
Here on the Flight Path
By Norm Foster
(From The Foster Festival in St. Catherines
Starring Jamie Williams & Melanie Janzen
Director: Blair Williams
Setting: the top floor, side by side balconies of apartments at the Aurora Terrace Apts.
John Cummings writes Cummings and Goings for the local paper. Fay is a high end call girl who isn’t ashamed of her occupation but is brainy enough to better herself. Angel is a small town girl hoping to break it as a singer – loves Broadway but ends up writing “hurtin’ songs”. Gwen recently arrived from Vancouver having left her husband. She ends up having an affair with John who is a divorced dad who can’t commit. (Melanie plays all three women!) The hilarious action centres on John’s relationships with the revolving female tenants who move in to the next door apartment.
Jamie and Melanie are husband and wife in real life. Melanie Janzen was the very funny “boss” lady in One Moment. She also has starred in The Ladies Foursome.

September 20th- 24th

Directed by Linda Kash
This chamber musical chronicles the life of Maurice Ruddick, an African Canadian who survived the historic mining disaster in Springhill, Nova Scotia in 1958. Ruddick – an African Canadian – was awarded “Citizen of the Year” for saving the lives of his fellow workers. This one man show will recall the events of seven miners trapped two miles beneath a small mining town, the effect it had on their rural Canadian community and the racial tension that surfaced as a result. Actor Beau Dixon amazingly portrays 10 characters: Maurice; the six miners whose lives he was credited with saving; a news reporter; Valerie, one of Ruddick’s 13 children; and Ruddick’s wife, Norma! Beneath Springhill is a story filled with tragedy, drama and comical – yet conflicting moments of hope and bravery.
