Current Show

Is there anything left to surprise us at Christmas? In this trio of dramatic stories by SAMC Theatre professor Lloyd Arnett, the answer is a resounding YES. Ring in the Advent season with some entertaining, thought-provoking theatre written specially for the Fraser Valley.

Angels - It begins with headline news: Bridge collapses under SkyTrain, 22 killed, 2 survivors. The mystery unfolds in an Anglican church, visited by police and survivors in turn, as a reported angel sighting forces a deacon to confront her “de-mythologized” faith.

Theodyssey - A blind woman searches for truth; a bride wonders if there’s any romance left beneath the wedding decorations; an atheist struggles to swallow his disbelief. Three worlds collide in this mystical journey where love is found in surprising places.

The Trinity Advent Play - Sometimes you can be in the centre of a crowded church and still feel alone. A pastor’s wife with a painful secret wonders if this Christmas will hold something different for her. A slice-of-life story with a surprising twist, this is a realistic meditation on God’s nearness in our suffering.
