Doris & Ivy in the Home

Written by Norm Foster
Directed by Warren Davis

Retired prison guard Doris Mooney has just moved to Paradise Village, a retirement home in Canmore, Alberta.

One Moment of Freedom

Written by Marion J. Zola
Directed by Linda Alznauer

Towards Zero

Written by Agatha Christie.

When a house party gathers at Gull's Point, the seaside home of Lady Tressilian, Neville Strange finds himself caught between his old wife Audrey and his new flame Kay.

A carefully unpeeled investigation before our eyes brings the story to a pointed ending.

The Half-Light

A chance encounter presents a tantalizing question for a college secretary: Can anyone be trained to see the dead? Her dogged pursuit of an answer leads to a far more earthbound challenge when a colleague is felled by grief.

Strangers on a Train

Written by Craig Warner

Two young men meet on a train; one an ambitious architect, the other a playboy with a taste for danger. As the train takes them to their destination, the two travelers speculate on what would it be like to commit the perfect murder. With a Private Investigator on their case, little do they know that their lives will soon become fatally linked forever.


March 21- April 25.

A surprise.

We can't reveal this one just yet. It will be a comedy by George Brant.

March 28- April 30.

Power and Light

Written by John Strysik

About the tangled relationship of Thomas Edison and Nikola Tesla and how these two amazing but flawed geniuses created our modern electrical world.

May 23- June 23.


The Explorers Club

Written by Neil Benjamin

London, 1879. the prestigious Explorers Club faces the worst crisis in their history: their acting president wants to admit a woman, and their bartender is terrible. True, the female candidate is brilliant, beautiful, and has discovered a legendary Lost City, but the decision to let in a woman could shake the very foundation of the British empire, and how do you make such a decision without a decent drink? Grab your safety goggles for some very mad science involving deadly cobras, irate Irishmen and the occasional airship.

Tickets are $35 for each show. For a limited time, a subscription for the entire season can be had for $200 (a savings of $80).
