Dr. Professor Bang, assisted by his son Trevor, runs a mobile clinic for the treatment of emotional ailments – mobile because he’s on the run from the authorities! Bang’s methods are, to put it mildly, unorthodox. His latest clients, married couple Winston and Matilda, are speaking gibberish and their memories are contained in mason jars. And why does Trevor appear to be inhabited by the personality of his mother? This world premiere of Daniel MacDonald’s new comedy/drama is a ground-breaking theatrical experience.
Meet Sugar and Grace Ducharme, a pair of seriously messed-up, non-identical twins burning off some hardcore bad karma. Try as they may, these girls just can’t seem to celebrate a birthday without somebody dying. It’s their 30th birthday, and it seems to be shaping up like all the others: a stripper, who is also the local Scrabble champion, is missing, and there could be a killer on the loose. Enter mysterious stranger Trout Stanley to save the day. An eccentric, captivating story in which the biggest catch of all is love.
After providing backup support for an operation in Afghanistan that went deeply wrong, four Canadian soldiers recount their own versions of what happened that night.

Gliding down from the sky with an umbrella, sliding up banisters and dancing on rooftops - Mary Poppins truly is “supercalifragilisticexpialidocious”! This enchanting musical will have you leaving the theatre with a song in your heart and a spring in your step.
Bernice has called a family meeting while a casserole bakes. Peter, Sarah and Iris – the middle child who provides the glue – listen as Mom announces her early onset of Alzheimer’s. The oven is on and Iris’s timer is set to remind her of a promise. A beautifully complex story of family, life, death and the memories in between.
This award winning play, developed with Fleury himself, tells the inspiring and honest story of how a 5’6” Metis from Manitoba beat all challenges to become an NHL star. Playing in over 1,000 games and scoring over 1,000 points, Fleury won a Stanley Cup in his rookie year and an Olympic gold medal with Team Canada. Performed entirely on hockey skates and synthetic ice, Playing with Fire is a triumph of one man’s spirit. Starring Shaun Smyth as Theo Fleury.
This play within a play is a festive farcical romp. A troupe of lady thespians brings ineptitude to new heights with their endearingly well-meaning assault on the Dickens Christmas classic. Enthusiastically portraying a dizzy array of characters from the beloved favorite (as well as a few of their own!), they engineer some novel audience participation, bravely contend with an intrusive PA system and wrap their vocal cords and feet around two original, show stopping songs.
This innovative new concert/theatre hybrid explores the power, passion and meaning of The Blues, tracing the history of what has become “everyone’s folk music”, telling all of our stories and influencing music of all genres. Following the Blues from its early roots to new artists, Blues veteran Raoul Bhaneja – with the help of his band The Big Time, and amazing R & B artist Divine Brown – combines autobiography, interviews and multi-media to draw you into a personal, poetic and visceral world of The Blues.
Half-siblings Vanya and Sonia are living out a quiet, if mediocre, middle age on the family estate, while their famous sister Masha pays the bills with a lucrative career in film. When she returns home with an ultimatum and a conceited new boy toy named Spike, it sets off an unforgettable weekend of lust, rivalry, regret and racket. This Tony Award winning play is a hilarious comedy of ill manners.
