SULLIVAN & GILBERT

By Ken Ludwig
Directed by Sean Anderson
Music Direction by Winnifred Hume
Choreography by Amy Tollefson

Performances at the Pumphouse Theatre – April 29th to May 14th, 2016

From the playwright who brought us Lend Me A Tenor comes a playful twist on our mandate to bring the best of Gilbert and Sullivan to Calgary audiences. In this delightful behind-the-scenes romp we get the best of the duo musically and in the flesh, when we meet the famous partners themselves! The story opens on a time when things were not all roses, in 1890 when they had been feuding for years. They are forced to work together one more time to bring their greatest works to life for Queen Victoria and so, we are treated to treasured pieces fromThe Mikado, Ruddigore, Iolanthe and The Pirates of Penzance, among others. Fans of Gilbert and Sullivan will be thrilled by Sullivan and Gilbert, for we have a song to sing, O! – several of them, in fact and we do hope you’ll join us for the joy! (And the rapture!)

THE SLEEPING BEAUTY

By Ben Crocker
Directed by Jay Newman

Performances at the Pumphouse Theatre – December 4th to 13th, 2015

You know the story: the beautiful princess is cursed by an evil fairy to prick her finger on a spindle on her 18th birthday and die. Nothing says “welcome to the world” like the well wishes of a wicked spell caster who wasn’t invited to the party. You know the characters: the Princess Aurora and her royal parents, the good fairies, the evil fairy and her cat Spindleshanks and of course, the dashing Prince who saves them all from their perpetual slumber. But this isn’t your ordinary slumber party, this is Pantomime! Oh yes it is! And you know what that means – flip flop boys with girls and girls with boys, mind you aren’t in the splash zone for the slosh scene – and is that a Queen or a Dame? It’s both! It’s all topsy turvy fun and games but some things ring true always and it’s true love’s kiss that will save the day this December. We hope you’ll take a break from the hustle and bustle and join us and the zombies for this family friendly holiday tradition.
