When the S.S. American heads out to sea, etiquette and convention fly out the portholes as two unlikely pairs set the course for true love, proving that sometimes destiny can use a little help from a motley crew of singing sailors, dancing show girls, an exotic disguise and some good old-fashioned blackmail. It’s a hilariously bumpy ride of romantic shenanigans and goofy gangster-isms featuring some of musical theatre’s most memorable standards, including “I Get a Kick out of You,” “You’re the Top,” “It’s De-lovely,” and, of course, “Anything Goes.”
Kiss the Moon, Kiss the Sun
By Norm Foster
Directed by Bill Korince
January 31, February 1-2, 6-9, 2013 at 7:30 pm
Canadian playwright Norm Foster offers a heartwarming, emotionally-charged story that explores the relationship between Robert, a developmentally delayed man, and Holly, a young pregnant woman. The play is a perfect blend of comedy and drama and gives us a close look at that commodity on the decline in our society: compassion. And, like real life, it is a constant tug-of-war between humour and pathos, selfishness and selflessness, surviving and thriving.
A Drama with Music by Peter Colley
Directed by Corry Lapointe

“Forty men went riding, though hundreds more knew why. Forty men were shouting, “The Donnellys must die!” Canada’s most infamous true story has grown in the telling with each generation since the events shook the little village of Lucan, Ontario in 1880. Why did god-fearing residents of a small rural town slaughter an entire sleeping family? Why has the code of silence lasted until this day? Tracing back to blood-feuds of old Ireland, the passions and hatreds that fueled this deadly tragedy are revealed in this gripping drama.
The Importance of Being Earnest
By Oscar Wilde
Directed by Ron Carney

The Importance of Being Earnest, Wilde’s enduring and endearing comedy, was first performed on Valentine’s Day, 1895. Algie and Jack, two friends and young gentlemen of leisure, are not above the use of deceit in their pursuit of pleasure. They find, however, that the path to true love does not run smoothly, especially with the implacable Lady Bracknell barring the way.
