Jake's Women

by Neil Simon

In one of the best plays from the award-winning American playwright, Jake, a 50-something writer, is trying to come to grips with his current marriage which seems to be falling apart. While the many women in his life float in and out of the play either as real beings or as fi gments of his imagination, he has to examine his relationship with his deceased first wife, his daughter at both age 12 and 21, his current wife, his psychologist, his sister, and his current girl-friend. It’s all quite funny but at the same time emotional and touching.

Recommended for age 12 and up.

Storm Warning

by Norm Foster

The setting is a remote beach on Pigeon Lake in September 1953. Lonely, shell-shocked veteran, Jack Forrester lives in Cabin No. 1 of a rustic cabin court. An unexpected late-season guest, Emma Currie rents Cabin No. 3 and turns Jack’s solitude upside down.

Polar opposites, chaos erupts as their opposing worlds collide. Both of these complex characters tackle their demons on their own terms, sometimes funny, sometimes sarcastic, sometimes bittersweet.

Book by John Michael Tebelak
Music and New Lyrics by Stephen Schwartz

Dissolving hauntingly into the Last Supper and the Crucifixion, Jesus' messages of kindness, tolerance and love come vibrantly to life.

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.
