Synopsis

This true life story has sparked books, plays and feature films all with rave reviews! 

Most people would say they can’t sing, many won’t sing, and of course all us love to sing alone in the shower! Imagine how someone, entirely tone deaf, becomes the toast of New York.  This is the impossible, preposterous, and yet 100% true story of Florence Foster Jenkins, a city socialite who climbed to the heights of the operatic repertoire while rarely having sung a note on key. Don your earplugs and follow her hysterical and ultimately triumphant journey in this rollicking off Broadway Hit. 

Directed by the legendary Sheila McCarthy, one of Canada’s most decorated actors, having won 2 Genies, 2 Geminis, 2 Dora Awards and most recently an ACTRA Award for Best Outstanding Female Performance among multiple nominations! 

"Life holds up a funhouse mirror to art in SOUVENIR, Stephen Temperley's wildly funny and surprisingly touching portrait of real-life musical laughingstock Florence Foster Jenkins… a memorable illustration of the real limits of self-perception, and of the purely theatrical magic that can turn the tinniest ear to gold." —Time Out NY.

Synopsis

In a world where marriages can last months, a collaboration of 50 years seems miraculous. Yet that describes John Kander and Fred Ebb, two of the most prolific theatre and film composers of our time. Our seasoned cast and 6-piece band take you on a singing, dancing journey through their Broadway and Oscar-Winning hits including New York New York, All That Jazz, Cabaret, and Arthur in the Afternoon! Our impressive cast, with credits from Broadway, most major Canadian Theatres, London’s West End, and National Tours will have you singing along and jumping to your feet. 

Directed by Artistic Director Dave Campbell, multiple Broadway World Nominee, and director of Toronto’s 2012 Revival of Cats, which garnered two Dora nominations. 

Join our all star cast and live band for this star studded revue of the songbook from the multi-Tony Award winning team, with the original production winning three Drama Desk Awards.

Synopsis

They say it’s healthy to laugh at yourself… but it’s really much more fun to laugh at others! Greater Tuna takes a magnifying glass to small town life. For everyone who ever watched their grandmother peek from behind a curtain to see who was “goin’ to town”, heard a soft click as they realized someone was eavesdropping, or politely listened to something entirely shocking from someone they previously assumed was sane… this play goes a little further. Two brilliant actors play 20 characters at
breakneck speed. Hold onto your seat… this is fast-paced, side-splitting, small town fun! 

Directed by national treasure Maja Ardal, former Artistic Director of YPT in Toronto, and Multiple Dora nominee and winner. 

The audience…all but exploded the theatre with laughter.’ 
– The New York Post.
