At nearly a 1/3 of the way through the year, here is a revised list of what's happened/to come. There have been a few changes and we are sure there are more to come. A year is a long time. We think it’s important to be flexible.

2014 Monthly Plans

Hello everyone!

We launched! Last Friday we got people together for two solo shows, Cory Thibert's "The Room Outside The Room" performed by one and handsome and always charming Tony Adams. And Norah Paton's "The Forsaken Daughters of Winter." Both went very well, although some would argue that the baby Josiah may have stolen the show. How do you compete with a friggen baby?

You don't, you will lose.

Regardless of who was the best part, what is most important is that we have ...

Dear faithful readers,

We apologize for not keeping you up to date about all our happenings, we know this has been very stressful for you.

May Can's Tony Adams and Cory Thibert perfomed in PRINCESS IVONA earlier this month, also featuring Leslie Cserepy and Stage Managed by our own Emily Carvell. It was a lot of fun to work on, there was a lot of good feedback about the show, we figured out that we look way better with make-up than without... Thanks to everyone who came out...

   Well the stars must be aligning for us cause we just booked a show for next week! This is our favourite type of show, one with extremely short notice.
