FunnyMoney Logo 300x300Funny 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!

Tomato Logo 300x300You 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.

BloodBrothers Logo 300x300Blood 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.

The Mumberley Inheritance (2015)

User Rating:  / 1

TheMumberleyInheritance WebPoster190xBy Warren Graves

The traditional melodrama themes are re-worked in a fast paced entertainment romp through the trials and tribulations of Mumberley Manor.  England in 1900 - Brother Jack is in Canada trying to find the secret of the Mumberley fortune - father's gambling debts are in the hands of villainous Marmaduke Mayhem - so what can poor daughter Daphne do but marry Mayhem, leaving Rodney Stoutheart and his stiff upper lip at the vestry door?  Rodney disguises himself as Jack - returned from Canada - at the same moment as Jack actually returns.  Thus the villain's attempts to dispose of Jack invariably lead to unfortunate experiences for Rodney.  All ends well once the villain has played his death scene (with encores). 

PS  - Great show to bring children to - there is audience participation booing, hissing and cheering!!

SkinFlick2014-Poster

By Norm Foster

A married couple, Rollie and Daphne, discover they are both out of work and, with a son in university, potentially broke. Their pal, Alex, then comes in to tell them that he has been fired from his job, and is, likewise, broke. One way or another, they come up with the idea to make a porn film. And, really, that’s all you need to know.

UPDATE January 2015: Skin Flick made the Oakville Arts Review Top 10 of 2014!  Here is a excerpt from the posting:

SKIN FLICK” It seems that West End Studio Theatre refuses to present anything that less than totally professional and perfect. Another Norm Foster creation, we really shouldn’t divulge much of the plot because we-thinks that WEST will simply HAVE to re-stage this effort. Briefly, instead of ‘let’s put on a show’ premise; ‘let’s make a porn movie’ sounds like a plan. Director Mustafa and his enthusiastic cast presented a fun alternative to ‘web porn’… or so we’re told!

And Then There Were None (2014)

User Rating:  / 0

AndThenThereWereNone-Poster-190x294By Agatha Christie

In this superlative mystery, statuettes of little soldier boys on the mantel in a house on an island off the coast of Devon fall to the floor and break one by one as those in the house succumb to a diabolical avenger. A nursery rhyme tells how each of the ten “soldiers” met his death - until there were none. Eight guests, who have never met each other or their apparently absent host and hostess, are lured to the island and, along with the two house servants, marooned. A mysterious voice accuses each of having gotten away with murder and then one drops dead - poisoned. One down and nine to go!

Pools Paradise (2013)

User Rating:  / 0

PoolsParadise2013-PosterZany, mad-cap events transpire at the Reverend Lionel Toop’s vicarage in the small village of Merton-cum-Middlewick. The plot revolves around Lionel’s wife, Penelope, who dabbles in a football pool with the help of their maid Ida and Ida’s suitor, the droll Willie Briggs.  The most fantastic complications ensue when the triumvirate wins - or when they think they have won more than 20,000£.  Lending richly comic hands are the old-maid parishioner, Miss Skillen and Penelope’s out-of-this-world uncle, The Bishop of Lax.   What happens when these assorted characters all get together on one stage has to be seen to be believed.

The Odd Couple (2013)

User Rating:  / 0

TheOddCouplePoster-190x294Written by Neil Simon, this classic comedy opens as a group of the guys assembled for cards in the apartment of divorced Oscar Madison. And if the mess is any indication, it’s no wonder that his wife left him. Late to arrive is Felix Unger who has just been separated from his wife. Fastidious, depressed and none too tense, Felix seems suicidal, but as the action unfolds Oscar becomes the one with murder on his mind when the cleanfreak and the slob ultimately decide to room together with hilarious results as The Odd Couple is born.

The Crucible is an exciting drama about the Puritan purge of witchcraft in old Salem. It is based on true events in seventeenth century American History surrounding the Salem Witch Trials. It is both a gripping and historical play and a timely parable of our contemporary society.

A Life In The Theatre (2011)

User Rating:  / 0

alifeinthetheatre-poster

Written by David Mamet
Produced by special arrangement with Samuel French Inc.

We are pleased to open this season’s Oakville Drama Series with a play penned my award winning playwright David Mamet. A Life In The Theatre focuses on the relationship between two actors, one a stage veteran, the other a promising young actor. In a series of play snippets that run the gamut from melodrama and sheer corn to pseudo-Chekhov, they portray the reality as well as the illusion of acting. Mishaps of the kind peculiar to the theatre occur with hilarious regularity. The setting provides the audience with an interesting glimpse of behind the scenes activities as most everything that would normally take place hidden from the audience will be in plain view.
