“Ahoy, Matey! Yo Ho Ho! Aarrgghh!”
LAUGHTER IS THE BEST MEDICINE
Toss your worries overboard and set sail for swashbuckling adventure with softhearted buccaneers, dewy-eyed damsels, bumbling British bobbies and “the very model of a modern Major General”. Gilbert and Sullivan’s hilarious, hopeful farce is an effervescent musical romp, overflowing with memorable tunes, tongue twisting texts, jaunty dances and hysterical action. Chart a course for this fun-filled voyage perfect for the whole family. The Pirates of Penzance – they’ll steal your heart away!

“The story we need to tell; the women we must remember”
HEALING FOR OUR COMMUNITY
When Ava, a young white woman, is thrown from her car in a crash and badly injured, she sees another body, a young native girl, lying on the ground. Their eyes meet…their worlds connect. This USA premiere production of Missing, by distinguished First Nations playwright Marie Clements & Juno-award winning composer Brian Current, gives voice, in English and the Native language, Gitxsan, to the stories of missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls. A poetic expression of loss, hope and the spirit finding home.

“All’s fair in love and war”
MUSIC TO SOOTHE THE SOUL
Step into a web of politics, police brutality, betrayal and jealousy! Set against a backdrop of war, chaos and corruption in Rome, the beautiful, celebrated singer, Floria Tosca, must give the performance of a lifetime to save the man she loves from the tainted hands of the treacherous chief of police. Will she murder for the man she loves? Will she save her lover in time? Will she emerge as the victor or victim of her own destiny? Puccini’s sumptuous tale of ill-fated love captivates new and longtime opera lovers alike. With passionate arias and soaring, sensuous melodies, Tosca’s power and raw emotion will leave you breathless.
