Run For Your Wife

September 23rd to October 1st, 2016
By Ray Cooney
Directed by James Noonan

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!

It’s a Wonderful Life

December 2nd to 17th, 2016
By Frances Goodrich, Albert Hackett, and Frank Capra
Directed by Jamie Eastgaard-Ross

Based on the classic film by Frank Capra, It’s A Wonderful Life has been delighting audiences on the silver screen and in theatres since it debuted in 1943. December just doesn’t seem complete without a trip to Bedford Falls and the story of George Bailey, a man who believes in building community and helping your neighbours. When he becomes overwhelmed by one misfortune after another, George almost gives in to despair and then, on Christmas Eve, he meets a special angel on a mission to help George and receive his wings. The timeless message of hope, love and charity is especially warming on winter evenings with family and friends close-by. We hope you and yours will come celebrate this classic piece and this special time with us.

For our Pantomime fans, we will be returning to the genre in 2017.

Skin Flick

February 3rd to 18th, 2017
By Norm Foster
Directed by Alice Nelson

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.


April 28th to May 13th, 2017
By W.S. Gilbert and Arthur Sullivan
Directed by Kelly Reay

Love. So beautiful. So musical. So complicated. Although forbidden by fairy law, Iolanthe marries a mortal and is then banished from fairyland. Here in our human world, she bears a son; a lovely lad named Strephon, who falls head over heels and wants to marry Phyllis, who is, of course, desired by all the members of the House of Peers. When Phyllis sees Strephon embrace Iolanthe, who is ethereal and lovely, she doesn’t stop for one moment to consider she might be Strephon’s mother and sets in motion a musical clash between politicians and fairies, sending everyone tripping hither, tripping thither – we did mention love can be complicated – it’s an energetic, satirical journey to the finale. Off and away to get your tickets! We’ll see you in Spring for this, the seventh of fourteen collaborations by W.S. Gilbert and Arthur Sullivan.

Harvey (Reunion Production)

June 14th to 24th, 2017
By Mary Chase
Directed by Richard Michelle-Pentelbury

When Elwood P. Dowd, a good-natured, mild-mannered eccentric, starts to introduce his imaginary friend- Harvey, a six-and-a-half-foot rabbit- to guests at a society party, his sister Veta, has seen as much of his eccentric behaviour as she can tolerate. She decides to have him committed to a sanitarium to spare her daughter, Myrtle Mae, and their family from future embarrassment.
Problems arise; however, when the doctors commit Veta instead of Elwood, but when the truth comes out, the search is on for Elwood and his invisible companion.

This is a reunion production, bringing back together the cast and crew from our January 2010 production.

Morpheus G&S Junior Theatre School Program

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 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.
