Unity 1918 by Kevin KerrUnity 1918 by Kevin Kerr

October 23-27, 2019
Turner Studio Theatre

Directed by Mary Harvey.

In the Fall of 1918, an influenza pandemic swept the planet, the deadliest outbreak of an infectious virus in recorded history. Millions of healthy young adults died as Spanish Flu reached every part of the globe aided by the mass return of soldiers from the First World War. More people died in 4 weeks of the Flu than in 4 years of combat.

Panic and paranoia begin to fill the small rural town of Unity, Saskatchewan as they await the homecoming of their young men. The town is quarantined, trains forbidden to stop, letters burned and citizens begin to turn on each other to try and find a scapegoat for the crisis…

“A work of powerful and moving familiarity … that celebrates love, sex, death and the sorrowful mysteries of war and plague. It is also painfully funny.”
(Globe & Mail)

Good for Grades 9-12 & Cegep.

The Miracle Worker by William GibsonThe Miracle Worker by William Gibson

March 12-15, 2020
Centennial Theatre

Directed by George Rideout.

Among the most beloved American plays of all time, The Miracle Worker presents the true story of the young Helen Keller, blind and deaf from infancy. Undisciplined by her parents due to the pity they feel for her, and unable to communicate beyond simple hand gestures, Helen has slipped ever further into a dark, soundless, and frightening world. As a last resort the Kellers hire a teacher for Helen, Annie Sullivan. Annie arrives with a rough, no nonsense mentality and despite the grave misgivings of the Kellers, she performs a miracle: she gives Helen the gift of language.

A play for the whole family that touches the heart in a way that few plays have ever done.

Good for 8 year old kids to adults.

Tartuffe or the Imposter by MolièreTartuffe or the Imposter by Molière

March 25-29, 2020
Turner Studio Theatre

Directed by Rebecca Harries.

Banned from stages in France, beginning in 1664, and Nouvelle-France in 1693, the first play to be banned in Québec, Molière’s most famous and most popular play could be offered as proof that controversy breeds success. Widely regarded as a satire of religious hypocrisy, Tartuffe or the Intruder also questions paternal power – what happens when the fate of many depends upon one man, who follows his personal feelings and ignoring reason and the rule of law; Orgon the father of the family becomes enamored of an Imposter.

The second year drama class sets out to answer these questions, embodying Molière’s vivid characters in a contemporary take on a funny, and at times nightmarish, classic.

Good for Grades 9-12 & Cegep.
