Unnecessary Farce
By Paul Slade Smith, Directed by Chelsea Friesen with Marie-Claire Gould
September 28th to October 6th, 2018

This is Eric and Billie’s chance. They have this one opportunity to prove they have what it takes to become full-fledged members of the police force. The hotel rooms are booked, the recording equipment is set up and functional. The informant has been prepped and the suspect is on his way. It’s all quite simple and straightforward. So naturally, it all goes catastrophically, ridiculously wrong. This side-splittingly funny season opener will have you giggling and rooting for our two wannabe cops from the moment we meet them. They are surrounded by a colorful cast of characters including Karen, who can’t seem to keep her clothes on, Frank, a cowardly security officer, and sweet, kind Mayor Meekly, who just can’t seem to get his meeting started no matter what he does, or what door he tries. This show is guaranteed to have you laughing out loud as we witness bumble after bumble, and bagpipes…did we already mention the bagpipes? Join us for this hilarious first show of our 2018-2019 season!

One Bad Apple: The Queen, Snow White and the Evil Red Delicious
By Charlotte Nixon, Directed by Sean Anderson
December 7th to 15th, 2018

Her Majesty, the gorgeous – but oh so evil! – Queen, has tasked us with telling you that you really shouldn’t miss this show. In fact, she demands that you, all of your family and all of your friends, attend the show – at least once – and that you enjoy your opportunity to bask in her brilliance. We at Morpheus Theatre would like to tell you that there will be all sorts of other delightful characters for you to meet as well, like the darling Snow White, some cosmically charged mushrooms, a dedicated Squirrel brigade and yes, the loveable Seven Dwarves. It’s time, once again, for some holiday, pantomime fun! Oh yes it is! It’s the story you know, brilliantly adapted for merriment, mirth and a Dame, by local playwright, Charlotte Nixon. We do hope we’ll see you at the show. The Queen has decreed it after all, so you probably shouldn’t risk the wrath. So very evil.

An Exciting Surprise
Details TBD
February 1st to 9th, 2019

We all love a good surprise. Or maybe procrastination got the better of us. Morpheus Theatre is waiting for confirmation that we can produce a wonderfully spectactular show this coming February. Once we get word, we will gladly share the details. In fact, we will shout it from the rooftops. (figuratively speaking, that is… we don’t want to risk falling off the roof, and then there is the fear of heights, and all the work to find a ladder).

Princess Ida
By Gilbert and Sullivan, Directed by Kaleigh Richards with Ginette Simonot
April 26th to May 11th, 2019

Princess Ida is having nothing to do with men, never mind love, or marriage. She is so firm in her belief that she has locked herself away in a University, attended only by women, and that is exactly where she plans to stay. She was betrothed to young Prince Hilarion from a very early age, and her failure to arrive to meet him with her father, King Gama, could be interpreted as an act of war, but still, she is having none of it. In fact, she’s willing to fight the men who show up on her doorstep if need be. Her fellow chaste and heretofore uninterested female friends, on the other hand, find themselves face to face with Cupid and less keen to do battle. A lesser known work of the dynamic duo, Princess Ida is nonetheless brimming with those qualities we love in the works of Gilbert and Sullivan: humour, sweeping and intelligent lyrics, witty commentary, danger and commotion! In the end, love wins the day, and for more than just our royal couple. It’s an exciting conclusion to our 24th season, so jump for joy and gaily bound down to the theatre to join us for Princess Ida!
