We are exciting to be supporting a brand new company this year with their very first production in Calgary!
Join your favourite woodland creatures in the musical adaption of The Wind in the Willows, co-produced by Untold Stories Theatre and Morpheus Theatre. Following the classic tale by Kenneth Grahame, take a journey with River-Bankers Rat and Mole as they adventure down the river and meet their quirky friend Toad, whose insatiable need for speed causes much dismay. But that’s not the only trouble afoot, the pesky Wild Wooders are scheming up new ways to have Toad Hall all to themselves! See how Badgers, Hedgehogs and Otters (oh my!) come together in friendship to save the day.
Apr 15 – 23 – THE WIND IN THE WILLOWS – (Co-Production with Untold Stories Theatre) – Based on Kenneth Grahame’s best-selling classic, full of humor, wit, a gorgeous, soaring score, and heartwarming lessons of friendship, THE WIND IN THE WILLOWS is the perfect fit for audiences everywhere.

COMING SOON – Our twice postponed gender-swapped production of The Pirates of Penzance is coming to the Pumphouse at the end of April! You won’t want to miss this version, where Abel falls in love with Frederique, the matronly Major General corrals her strapping young wards, and the Pirate Queen and her lady pirates swashbuckle their way through “Cat-Like Tread”. Oh, and did we mention? Our full orchestra has returned in belated celebration of our 25th Anniversary!
