On behalf of everyone at Morpheus Theatre, we would like to wish Happy New Year to all of our patrons, volunteers and friends. A big thank you to everyone who helped pack the Pumphouse Theatre last month to share in the holiday spirit! If you saw a great performance at It’s a Wonderful Life, we encourage you to nominate a performer, director or designer to recognize their work. Click HERE to honour our volunteers.
If you haven’t heard, we have a new Musical Director for our G&S JR Program!
Winnifred Hume has been teaching voice lessons in Calgary since 2006, after graduating with a Bachelor of Music in Vocal Performance from the University of Manitoba. She also works as an accompanist and organ scholar at the Cathedral Church of the Redeemer. Win is passionate about the music of Gilbert and Sullivan, and has appeared in and music directed several Morpheus Theatre productions since 2013. She is excited for this opportunity to share the fun of G&S with a new generation of artists!

We are recruiting new Front Of House Managers to join our FOH team!
Typical commitment is 2 to 3 performances per production (with the option to opt out if necessary of course!)
The Front of House Manager takes the lead in the box office selling tickets and works with the Stage Manager to make sure the evening runs smoothly. The FOH Manager needs to remain in the lobby for the duration of the show, however, you also receive 2 complimentary tickets, so you can view the show when you are not working! Ideal candidates would be comfortable navigating computers, using Excel, Outlook and counting money, as well as good communication & organization skills.
If you are interested, give us a call at the Morpheus office (403) 246-2999 or email firstname.lastname@example.org!
