In this story inspired by West African legends, an ancient baobab tree stands tall amidst a persistent drought. One day the tree brings forth an egg and from the egg is born a little boy. The villagers discover that he is the only one who can free the source of water. A beautiful show in which African percussions turn into animals while masks and puppets become genies and witches!

In 1880, Johannah Donnelly and her six dangerous yet devoted sons were a fierce Irish immigrant clan unafraid to take what was theirs – and they paid for it with their lives.

Now “The Black Donnellys” have returned from the dead to remind us of a shocking chapter in Canadian history. A riveting new rock musical about family, forgiveness and frontier justice from the creators of Frankenstein and Nevermore

In pre-revolution Cuba, a hapless vacuum cleaner salesman in need of money agrees to feed information to the British Secret Service. With nothing to report he lets his imagination run wild, inventing agents, secret plans and daring missions, soon sending both London and Havana spinning out of control. This spectacular tour de force shares the same theatrical DNA as our hugely popular production of The 39 Steps.
