'Jenny's House of Joy'

by Norm Foster.

April 25th, 26th and 27th. May 2nd and 3rd, 2014.

Set in 1870s Kansas, this is a period comedy revolving around the women working at the best little brothel in Baxter Springs. When a young woman, running away from a brutal husband, comes looking for a job, Jenny and her girls are amazed by her business savvy and penchant for the oldest profession. Feathers, frills and furbelows, a brawling and bawling all-female cast and hilarious descriptions of stints upstairs with the good ole boys create memorable entertainment as well as empathy for the women who lived by their wits in the Wild West a hundred and fifty years ago.

Directed by Jean Jardine Miller.

October 2013

Five passengers wait in a departure lounge at Pearson Airport for their snowstorm-delayed Air Canada flight. Nathan, the loner travelling on business to the Cayman Islands ignores the attempts at conversation from the more gregarious Elizabeth, a cosmetic salesperson, and Marion, a spunky senior. An eloping couple, on their way to a dream ‘wedding on the beach’ join them and the many twists and turns of the plot take us from classic sit-com scenario to spy spoof to – well, just who is supposed to be following who, and why?

Directed by Debbie Tait.

Due to unforeseen circumstances, this production was cancelled.
