Waiting For The Parade

Written by John Murrell

Directed by Sondra Learn
Produced by Penny Oliver

A touching drama that speaks honestly and directly to the heart.

Waiting for the Parade by playwright John Murrell, is an award winning Canadian play which takes place in Calgary in the 1940s during WWII.  With music and costumes from the era, it captures life back home as people rallied to support the war effort amid shortages and personal loss.

They are the women who also served during World War II, providing munitions and knitted socks, battling food shortages and devastating loneliness, who were expected to “keep smiling through” until the boys came home.

Dates: September 14-15, 21-22, 28-29, 2018
Curtain 8:00 PM

Audition: A Bad Year For Tomatoes

A hilarious comedy by John Patrick

Directed by James Luckett
Produced by Chuck Learn

Fed up with the pressures and demands of her acting career, the famous Myra Marlowe leases a house in the tiny New England hamlet of Beaver Haven and settles down to write her autobiography.

She is successful in turning aside the offers pressed on her by her long-time agent, but dealing with her nosy neighbours. “Everyone knows those nosy neighbours” – who won’t mind their own business. They’re quirky, odd and sometimes even a little crazy – and Beaver Haven is full of them.

Directors Notes: A cute fun play.
