"If I had to choose between betraying my country and betraying my friend, I hope I should have the guts to betray my country." -- E.M. Forster. Set in a London suburb and based on true events, this thriller begins when the Jackson family greets their good friends and Canadian neighbours, the Krogers. The Jacksons are quickly thrust into the middle of an investigation by the mysterious agent Stewart, who is tracking Russian spies. Suddenly even innocent actions take on sinister meanings as the family struggles with deception and lies...and choosing between loyalty to their country or to their friends.

When Ben and Lily met several years ago, it was "friends at first sight". But, nobody believes that Lily and Ben are "just friends". As Ben's parents plot to ensure he finds true love, Lily may have just discovered her dream man. Will they be able to hold off meddling friends and family long enough to realize their true feelings? This hilarious Canadian comedy puts the bounds of friendship to the test.

Romeo & Juliet
by William Shakespeare
Directed by Tom Kobolak

Shakespeare's masterpiece of love, courage and redemption comes to life against the backdrop of the 1848 Uprising. And as the struggle of Italian patriots flares into open and bloody revolt against their Austrian overlords, two Houses, both alike in dignity, face a new and powerful mutiny of their own...

"Commend me to thy Lady, And bid her hasten all the house to bed....
                                                                                           ... Romeo is coming."


And for the holiday season . . .

A Year With Frog and Toad
by Robert and Willie Reale
Directed by Karen Boese
December 27 - December 30, 2011
This musical remains true to the spirit of the original stories by Arnold Lobel as it follows two great friends, the cheerful and popular Frog and the rather grumpy Toad through four fun-filled seasons. Waking from hibernation in the spring, they proceed to plant gardens, swim, rake leaves and go sledding, learning life lessons along the way, including a most important one about friendship and rejoicing in the attributes that make each of us different and special.
