**Directors will be announced soon!
June 8 –Masks Inside and Out with Steve Jarand – We all hide behind different versions of ourselves. The roles we play are temporary masks we wear. These masks help us navigate through our lives, yet revealing what lies underneath may feel too personal. But if we wear a real mask and play the game of disguise, honest expression turns our self-consciousness into an adventure. Showing something genuine from inside feels like a universal truth. It is a joy for us, and a gift to the audience. Fabulous Value!
June 9, 2:00 – 4:00 – Annual Appreciation BBQ – Join us for an afternoon of FREE BBQ, door prizes, socializing, and show reminiscing all hosted by our wonderful Board of Directors! Show mementos will be available for pick up (cast photos, etc). There will also be information on our new season, and how to get involved. At Home at Morpheus, 3512 5 Avenue NW
June 18, 19, 20 – Auditions for LEND ME A TENOR – More information coming soon!
June 22, 23 – Casino Fundraiser – Every 18 months or so the Alberta Government grants Morpheus Theatre a license to hold a casino as a fundraiser! These casinos bring in up to $70,000 or more for our use in putting on shows. To make these casinos work we need to fill some 36-38 shifts – at roughly $2,000 per volunteer shift, this can be a great way to support Morpheus! If you would like to volunteer to be a BACK UP for shift or two, please sign up HERE!
