Skin Flick by Norm Foster

October 16-19 , 22-25, 2014

WEST END STUDIO THEATRE

A married couple, Rollie and Daphne, discover they are both out of work and, with a son in university, potentially broke. Their pal, Alex, then comes in to tell them that he, too, has been fired from his job, and is, likewise, broke. One way or another, they come up with the idea to make a porn film. And, really, that's all you need to know.

Colours In The Storm: The Tom Thomson Musical by Jim Betts

November 6-9, 12-15, 2014

THE OAKVILLE PLAYERS

Colours in the Storm is the story of Tom Thomson, one of Canada's best loved painter. Thomson's landscapes of Algonquin Park such as "The West Wind", "The Jack Pine", and "Northern River" are among the most famous paintings ever done in Canada. But Thomson is perhaps as famous for the controversy of his death in 1917 as he is for the strength of his paintings. He died in mysterious circumstances in the waters of Canoe Lake, and in the yesrs since his death there has been endless speculation about who may have murdered him. The show is about one man's struggle to realize his own potential: about the recognition of a talent in oneself, and of the determination and obsession with realizing that talent or potential. Colours In The Storm captures the beaurty of our north and speaks passionately to our Canadian hearts and spirits.

The Mumberley Inheritance by Warren Graves

February 5-8, 11-14, 2015

WEST END STUDIO THEATRE

The traditional melodrama themes are re-worked in a fast paced entertainment romp through the trials and tribulations of Mumberley Manor. England in 1900 - Brother Jack is in Canada trying to find the secet of the Mumberley fortune - father's gambling debts are in the hands of villainous Marmaduke Mayhem - so what can poor daughter Daphne do but marry Mayhem, leaving Rodney Stoutheart and his stiff upper lip at the vestry door? Rodney disguises himself as Jack - returned from Canada - at the same moment as Jack actually returns. Thus the villain's attempts to dispose of Jack invariably lead to unfortunate experiences for Rodney. All ends well once the villain has played his death scene (with encores).

PS - Great show to bring children to - there is audence participation booing, hissing and cheering!!

Enjoy watching the backstage antics during "commercial breaks of the live broadcast" and cheer on fellow audience members as they participate in the "locally floavoured" trivia-based game. It might even be you who takes home the glory in this fun-filled evening for all.
