Funny Money

by Ray Cooney

Never has this master of farce been frenetically funnier! Henry A. Perkins, a mild mannered CPA, accidentally picks up the wrong briefcase on his way home for his birthday dinner; one full of money! Henry assumes it’s illicit cash and decides to keep it and skip town with his wife. But, standing between Henry and Jean’s shot at a new life in Barcelona, are their well-meaning friends, Vic and Betty, a police officer with lots of questions and a serious case of mistaken identity. Soon the house is full, resulting in a frantic game of cat and mouse, hilarious innuendo, and cruelly funny turns of fate. The battle to hold on to the money is on!

You Say Tomato, I Say Shut Up!

by Annabelle Gurwitch and Jeff Kahn

A real life love story - zany, hectic and uproariously funny! Whether you have been married forever, thinking about marriage, or still looking for the "perfect" relationship, you will laugh at the hilarious, romantic rollercoaster ride towards Happily Ever After, which proves there is hope & happiness for even the most incompatible of lovers, husbands & wives.  After thirteen years of marriage, Annabelle Gurwitch and Jeff Kahn have found, “We’re just not that into us.” In their hilarious and ultimately moving memoir, YOU SAY TOMATO, I SAY SHUT UP! actor/comedian/writers/real-life married couple Annabelle and Jeff prove that in marriage, all you need is love—and a healthy dose of complaining, co-dependence, and Pinot Noir.

Blood Brothers

by Willy Russell

The provocative and heartbreaking multi-award winning musical by Willy Russell. Blood Brothers tells the unforgettable story of the Johnstone twins. Separated at birth when their mother could not afford to raise them both, Mickey and Edward grew up streets apart, becoming best friends but never knowing the truth. After childhood, divergent paths lead one brother to riches and the other to rags with lives that intersect over the love of the same woman. Hanging over this stunning musical is the chilling prophecy that twins who are separated at birth will die on the day they discover the truth about who they are.

ActingForAdults Icon

Part theory, part improvisation, part practical exercises, the course mainly focuses on the shooting of classic and contemporary film and television scenes which are then broken down and analyzed to provide the student with the basics that are essential to working imaginatively, authentically and successfully in front of a camera.  This is achieved by exploring how to break down a script, what to do before, during and after the camera rolls as well as how to find beats, objectives and transitions in a scene.

About the Teacher: Film & TV acting for Adults will be taught by Jeff Morrison.  Jeff is a Dramatic Arts teacher in the Peel District School board. He has worked in the professional world of television, film and theatre before moving to New York to study acting and directing. Jeff has worked with West End Studio Theatre since 2001 teaching acting classes and directing stage performances for the Oakville Drama Series. He is extremely excited to start a new session of artistic exploration.
