directed by Linda Pipher
Harriet, a divorcee living in an elegant flat in Brighton, solves her financial problems by entertaining two married gentlemen callers on different days of the week. The scheme faces collapse when her friend Anne, whose marriage is tottering, arrives at the flat hotly pursued by her husband. One of Harriet’s lovers is confined to her bed with a sprained ankle and the second lover turns up unexpectedly, closely followed by two irate wives in search of their itinerant husbands. The indescribable confusion that ensues builds to a rich complexity of mistaken identity, splendidly farcical situations and a climax of comic wizardry.
April 24-26 & April 30-May 3
Presented by special arrangement with MTI – April/May 2020
directed by Lynda Daniluk
“Try To Remember” a time when this romantic charmer wasn’t enchanting audiences around the world. It is a timeless fable of love that manages to be nostalgic and universal at the same time. The Fantasticks is a funny and romantic musical about a boy, a girl, and their two fathers who try to keep them apart. The narrator, El Gallo, asks the audience to use their imagination and follow him into a world of moonlight and magic. The boy and the girl fall in love, grow apart and finally find their way back to each other after realizing the truth in El Gallo’s words that, “without a hurt, the heart is hollow.”
June 12-14 & 18-21
Presented by special arrangement with Samuel French – June 2020
directed by Sheila Jasiak
The semi-autobiographical, riotous account of stage-struck young David Kolowitz, originated on Broadway by Alan Arkin, working as a delivery boy in a sewing machine factory. Denying his parent’s wishes for a druggist in the family, he leaves their dreams and his devoted girlfriend Wanda behind and is soon enlisted (and paying for) a slot as the “leading man” in a third-rate theatrical company while being vamped by the resident less-than leading lady, the daughter of the hammy “artistic director.” His baptism of fire is a hilarious first performance where everything that can go wrong, does.
August 21-23 & 27-30
Presented by special arrangement with DRAMATIC PUBLISHING – August 2020
directed by Lynda Daniluk
This two-act musical brings Wonderland to the audience through a two-act musical that deals honestly with Lewis Carroll’s stories and characters—even Alice’s fall down the rabbit hole. It’s an adaptation that pays wonderful attention to all the levels of Carroll’s story and will entertain not only children but adults also. John Neville drama editor of the Dallas Morning News reported: ” thanks to Sally Netzel and Beatrice Wolf, here is theatre that kids can grab – it’s tuneful, colourful and peopled with characters they can understand”
Sept 25-27 & Oct 1-4
Presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH, INC. – Sept/Oct 2020
directed by Katharine Coleman
A long running success in London and on Broadway and packed with thrills, chills and laughter. In Maine near the Canadian border there’s a legend of a phantom locomotive sweeping through a peaceful village leaving death in its wake. Rum and narcotic runners use this and the villagers’ superstition to their advantage but a not as incompetent as he seems detective clears up the mystery of the specter and attendant deaths. His seemingly silly actions result in the apprehension of the evildoers and the little village and its station are finally at peace. For sheer, creeping mystery, it’s a play without a peer.
Nov 27-29 & Dec 3-6
Presented by special arrangement with Lazy Bee – Nov/Dec 2020
directed by Emily Duberville
James Barry’s full-length British pantomime treatment of J.M. Barrie’s Peter Pan. Whilst it’s done in a modern panto style, the story remains faithful to the original. Peter Pan and Tinkerbell the fairy, lead Wendy Darling and her brothers on an adventure to Neverland, leading to the final showdown with Peter’s enemy, Captain Hook (and Hook’s enemy, the crocodile). Boo and hiss our baddys and cheer and clap the cast in our traditional family panto. Lots of singing and dancing. We can assure you that you’ve never seen Tiger Lily quite like this! It’s a magical adventure you won’t want to miss!
