2014/15 Season


THE ILLUSION

October 21 - November 1

In this tale of magic and treachery, a mysterious illusionist reconnects a grieving father with his prodigal son...but where is the line between dream and reality? Can one vision change the course of a man’s life? Kate Muchmore directs Tony Kushner’s acclaimed adaptation of the popular 17th Century comedy, combining elegant poetry with witty, contemporary surprises.

BUTTERFINGERS ANGEL

November 18 - 29

Artist-in-Residence Paul Muir visits from Alberta’s Rosebud Theatre to direct this very
un-traditional Christmas story! William Gibson’s heart-warming holiday hit is known as (get ready)...The Butterfingers Angel, Mary & Joseph, Herod the Nut, & the Slaughter of 12 Hit Carols in a Pear Tree. In other words, there’s some serious comedy in this quirky retelling of the Nativity! The show has roles for children: open auditions will be held September 11 for young thespians across the Fraser Valley. Email theatre@twu.ca for details.

As Little Children

AS LITTLE CHILDREN

January 27 - 31

World premiere of an exciting new script by distinguished TWU alumna Mary Eden (’10). Eden is a playwright and actor currently working in New York City. Don't miss this touching family drama that follows an intuitive young girl through a whimsical world of innocent faith and divine intervention.
 

THE DROWSY CHAPERONE

March 10 - 28

A high-flying 1920s musical that celebrates all the things people love about musicals, while poking fun at the rest. What begins as a lonely dreamer’s fantasy world spins into a topsy-turvy love story that’s so enchanting, it must be real. Angela Konrad directs this scandalously funny spectacle, bringing together a triple-threat cast of SAMC Theatre and SAMC Music students for a tap-dancing good time.

Music & Lyrics: Lisa Lambert and Greg Morrison
