The Christmas Spirit

by Frederick Stroppel

Winner at the 2002 Florida Repertory Congress of Jewellers Play Series

In this off-beat, dark comedy Julia Dowling has an unexpected visitor on Christmas Eve, whose job is to escort her to the afterlife. Julia persuades her visitor to hold off for one day and invites him and his other “passenger” to the family party the next day. This is an amusing yet thought-provoking mixture of Death Takes a Holiday and a typical family festive get-together, complete with bickering relatives, an unsure priest and a budding romance.

Recommended for age 14 and up. Mature themes.

When ruggedly handsome, National Geographic photographer, Robert Kincaid, pulls into her driveway seeking directions, though, what happens in those four days may very well alter the course of Francesca's life.

Innocence Lost

by Beverley Cooper

Innocence Lost is a riveting take on the Steven Truscott criminal case that follows the events prior to the murder, the subsequent trial and conviction, and a decades-long crusade to have the verdict overturned and Truscott’s name cleared. Still within living memory of many of the baby-boom generation, this is the story that rocked the country for decades, and set in motion seismic changes to the Criminal Justice system in Canada.

Book by John Michael Tebelak
Music and New Lyrics by Stephen Schwartz
Conceived and Originally Directed by John Michael Tebelak
Based on The Gospel According to St. Matthew

A small group of people help Jesus Christ tell different parables by using a wide variety of games, storytelling techniques and a hefty dose of comic timing. An eclectic blend of songs, ranging in style from pop to vaudeville, is employed as the story of Jesus' life dances across the stage. Dissolving hauntingly into the Last Supper and the Crucifixion, Jesus' messages of kindness, tolerance and love come vibrantly to life.

Boasting a score with chart-topping songs, a book by a visionary playwright, and a feature film, Godspell is a sensation that continues to touch audiences.

Suitable for all ages.

Time After Time

by John Mattera

Jack the Ripper steals H.G. Wells' Time Machine to escape from 1893 into the future. Wells pursues him to bring him back to London and justice. Jump forward to San Francisco in 1980, where Wells meets Amy, a bored bank teller, who becomes an ally in his quest. This unusual mixture of sci-fi, gore, romance and, yes, comedy, was made into a 1979 movie featuring Malcolm McDowell and Mary Steenburgen.

Arms and the Man

by George Bernard Shaw

What do a Swiss mercenary who uses his pistol holster to carry chocolates, an idealistic young woman with little worldly experience, her less than faithful fiancé and a social climbing, headstrong and flirtatious maid have in common? Since the successful 1894 premiere of Arms and the Man, audiences have delighted in discovering the answer.

Shaw's sharp satire and good humour guide us to revisit our notions of fidelity, romantic love, and the nobility of war.

Recommended for age 12 and up
