2020/21 season

The season we’d planned didn’t turn out to be the season we delivered. Instead we innovated and went online. Our thanks to everyone who joined us on Zoom.

September 2020

The response was gratifyingly favourable.

Honestly, this is real feedback from real viewers.

Buoyed by this success, we got back to work.

December 2020

There may not have been a panto at the Community Hall in 2020, but there was a Christmas show!

Once again we offered two new plays by local authors, along with some musical guests.

In The Christmas Project, written and directed by TJ Radcliffe, we discovered that angels began meeting via celestial Zoom long, long before we did. The Nativity didn’t just happen. A lot of planning went into it, as revealed for the first time in this affectionate look at the angels – including the one who forgot to book a hotel room – who were behind it all.

In The Nativity Auditions, written and directed by Lesley Hazeldine, Ray Appel and Scott Rivers, the local amateur dramatic society is holding auditions for a nativity play. Everyone wants in on the act. In a series of short sketches we discovered how wildly inappropriate the wannabe stars are for the roles in which they seek to be cast.

Once again the response was gratifying.

May 2021

Just because there was no live theatre didn’t mean we couldn’t offer our annual One-Act Play Festival. In May we went viral  to SPRING FORWARD  with four online performances of three new pieces.

The show featured two delightful new plays written by Gabriolan authors Anne M. Holmes and Wendy Phillips and a wildly game show, written, filmed and directed by Ray Appel and Scott Rivers.

July 2021

We were finally back onstage in front of live audiences at Cultivate with a remounting of Life on Mars by Elliott Hayes.
