Shorthanded

Directed by Shirley Holmes
By Michael Grant 

PG – Some coarse language

It’s Game 7 of the championship finals and the local Old Timers’ hockey team is in their locker room gearing up for the chance to finally redeem themselves. Cursed by a legendary Game 7 loss suffered years ago as Junior B players, the Old Timers’ home town hasn’t won a title since. But just how much can the players take for the team? Shorthanded is a fast-paced comedy about friendship, loyalty and community.

The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee

Directed by Cory Laycock
Musical Direction by Lacey Mooney

This Tony Award-winning musical charms audiences with its effortless wit and humour. One of the top 100 longest running Broadway plays, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee tells the story of an eclectic group of students – played by adults – vying for the spelling championship title of a lifetime. While candidly disclosing hilarious and touching stories from their home lives, the students spell their way through a series of (potentially made-up) words, hoping never to hear the soul-crushing, pout-inducing, life un-affirming “d-i-n-g” of the bell that signals a spelling error.

Back By Popular Demand With An All New Show!

                                                                       

The Comic Strippers, back by popular demand with an all new show, are a fictitious male stripper troupe played  by a cast of some of Canada’s best improvisational comedians. These guys try to be sexy… it just comes out funny. Constantly grooving and gyrating, in between scenes they banter with the crowd and perform their sexylarious twist on improv sketches. They sing, they “dance;” these guys are oiled up and ready to make you laugh. Women often say the most attractive thing about a man is his sense of humour – so ladies, these stripped-down comedians are sure to make your head explode. And not to worry, gentlemen, this is definitely a parody of male strippers. Some of the performers have what’s called ‘Comedy Bodies’ – they will make you look fabulous by comparison!
