Hansel and Gretel

An original happy adaption…
By Vic Hyde

Directed by Kevin Moore

A one act show written for the children.

Everything’s comedy in this year’s seasonal Children’s play and Panto. Vic Hyde’s adaptation of this famous fairy tale is light-hearted romp in the forest, and the famous lost children, Hansel and Gretel, are a bright and witty brother and sister. There’s the loving mother and father, and there’s a couple of joke-cracking, knock-about woodsmen who try to help. Best of all there’s Fanny Frightface who owns the magic berry bush. She’s called a witch, but she gives real witches a bad name, because she’s just a nasty old lady who won’t let nice children pick berries from her wonderful berry bush and if they do the bush will … oh, oh… we don’t want to spoil the story. We can’t say any more, but be sure that there’ll be great fun and nonsense for everyone!

The Odd Couple (female version)

A Comedy by Neil Simon
Directed by Sondra Learn

It’s the famous Odd Couple of Felix and Oscar recreated by the author in a totally hilarious female version. Since its first Broadway appearance in 1985 it’s had audiences falling about with laughter in countless professional and community theatres all over the world.

Come and meet Florence and Olive trying to share an apartment as totally opposite personalities;   compulsively neat and tidy Florence and incurably mess-indifferent Olive turn each other’s lives into one crisis after another. When the girls get together for an evening of Trivial Pursuit with a bevy of friends, and the helpful neighbours, the brothers Costazuela, get involved, the hilarity explodes.

Will everything work out for them all? If you know your Neil Simon, you’ll know the outcome will be quintessential American theatre.

“Very funny, indeed” reported the New York Post, and USA Today calls it “Endearing”

Sherlock Holmes and the West End Horror

A comedy/mystery by Marcia Milgrom Dodge and Anthony Dodge

Directed by Michael Hannigan

Hang onto your hats, the game’s a foot. A merry madcap mixture of mystery, murder and Mayhem.

A despicable theatre critic has been murdered, and Holmes and Watson are soon visited by George Bernard Shaw, an aspiring Irish playwright who entices Holmes to take the case. As they cross swords with the most famous literary luminaries of the day — Oscar Wilde, Gilbert & Sullivan, Henry Irving, Bram Stoker, and a young H.G. Wells, Holmes and Watson come face to face with their own celebrity as they pursue the killer in this rollickingly funny whodunit.

Collapse with laughter at this fast-paced farce

Vivien Bliss, romantic and virginal, intends to remedy a significant part of that condition during a weekend spent in the apartment of Edgar Chisholm.

Difficulties begin when Doris decides to cancel her out-of-town trip and stay home with her husband, a plan that is discovered by the two would-be paramours only after Vivien is down to her baby-dolls. The confusion grows with the introduction of Bill Scant, a henpecked husband seeking an emergency consultation with Doris. Then there’s Peggy Scant, who believes Bill to be her older brother, but who is actually his and Doris’…. oh well, never mind now, because you’re going to be caught up in one of the funniest Canadian farces ever.
