A topsy-turvy and touching Canadian musical about a young girl who comes to grips with loss and the reality of growing up. Jill wonders why the endings to three of her favourite fairy tales, The Three Little Pigs, Goldilocks & the Three Bears, and The Three Billy Goats Gruff seem to differ from when she read these tales with her Grandma. With the help of a detective and her favourite fairy tale characters, Jill learns that though real life may not be a fairy tale, it can be just as amazing.

Anna, a brilliant astronomer, has lost the ability to speak. What emerges from her mouth is a hodge-podge of unconnected words - alternately confusing, funny, original, and wise - and sometimes all four. This inspirational drama about the strength of the human spirit when faced with the challenges of a devastating affliction, touches, probes, reveals, and conquers. How do you counter and overcome the forces that have turned your mind into a black hole simply to communicate, to be understood by those you love, and to find yourself once again?

"What family doesn’t have its ups and downs?” So asks Queen Eleanor of Acquitaine in this witty and elegant comedy. Christmas Eve in the year 1183 AD brings together one of history’s least functional royal families. Adultery, sibling rivalry and repression produce turmoil when practiced by England’s King Henry II, his queen and their nasty brood, two of whom are also destined to be kings. So what if this family’s bickering can unleash war on all of Europe? That’s just the way things are.
