John Smith is a man with a schedule and a secret. The schedule is not just to keep him on time in his job driving a taxi, it also keeps his life—his lives, rather—organized and in their places. You see, it’s important to be organized when one has two of everything. Yes, everything. Two separate lives in two different houses in two different areas of London, with two different wives! When John is mugged, he finds himself coming home from the hospital surrounded by wives and policemen, all asking for an explanation. Run For Your Wife has been bringing laughter to audiences for many years. Join us this September when it brings the laughter to you!

What do you do when all the money is gone? When there’s no jobs in sight, the family home still isn’t paid off and the bills just keep coming, how can one survive in a society that requires capital? When Rollie and Daphne Waters are faced with just such a situation, they decide it is time to get creative…and a little risqué. Okay, a lot risqué. But it would be fairly easy, after all, their friend Alex has a camera, he’s a professional cameraman and he just lost his job too! Daphne is a writer, Rollie can get the costumes…it’s a cash cow! And besides, it’s not like the designer dress can be returned, so what choice do they have, really? It could be romantic, really—a young love story, with Italian bakeries and nine grain baguettes! Come enjoy a laugh with us in these troubling economic times, it’s in the stars!
In honour of Canada’s 150th year, we are presenting this comedy by renowned Canadian playwright Norm Foster.
Morpheus Theatre is pleased to announce that the G&S Junior Theatre School program is back for a 6th season.
In October 2016, we will be continuing to offer both a Junior class for students 9 to 13 years old, and a Senior class for students 14 to 17 years old. The program gives youth an opportunity to expand their acting skills and challenge themselves with the lyrics and patter of a Gilbert and Sullivan operetta. The Senior class will also include more advanced acting skills and choreography.
Both classes will run Saturday mornings from 10:00-11:30 beginning in mid-October. Classes will include professional instruction in Acting and Voice and the program will culminate in two youth performances on the set of our mainstage production in the Victor Mitchell Theatre at the Pumphouse Theatre.
Please be advised that the G&S JR Theatre School Class for ages 9 – 13 is full. Thank you for your support!
