THE INCREDIBLE SPEEDINESS OF JAMIE CAVANAUGH
written by Chris Craddock, directed by Christian Goutsis
Jamie Cavanaugh is pretty sure she has super powers, but nobody in her life seems to agree. Trouble is, her super speed is getting out of control, and if she’s not careful, the super villains in her life could snatch those powers away. From the hilarious mind of Chris Craddock comes a wacky story of strength in unlikely places. 7pm performances April 27-29, May 3-6.
THE CHIP ON YOUR SHOULDER
written and directed by Sophi Murias and Connor Welsh
Betrayal. Romance. Gambling. Allusions to classic literature. Fancy computers. Poker chips. Shoulder chips. Potato chips. Wordplay. Professional differences. Romantic tension. It all comes
together in the heist of a lifetime. Five diverse individuals must work together to bridge their differences in kinda stressful circumstances. Will they succeed? Or will they screw up and go home? No one knows. Evening performances May 4 (after 7pm showing of The Incredible Speediness of Jamie Cavanaugh) and 2pm matinee performance on May 6.

During tech week of any play, friendships are tested, curses are activated, love hecadecanonagones are revealed, and memories are made. In this play, Amber, Christy and Brian will bring you through all the emotional ups and downs of their tech week. After the newbie to theatre says the cursed “M” word during a rehearsal,some peculiar things start to happen: impromptu fires, chairs randomly falling apart, and strange behaviour from kids who might have had a little too much Red Bull. Will the show go on, or will the chaos distract them from getting ready for the play? Opening night is only a week away! Find out in Tech Week! Evening performances May 3 (after 7pm showing of The Incredible Speediness of Jamie Cavanaugh) and 2pm matinee performance on May 6.

WHAT I STAND FOR IS WHAT I STAND ON
written by Samantha Cote, directed by Paige Prystupa
The natural world runs on balance and harmony. But when that balance is disrupted it can be difficult to find our way back.

Evening performances May 4 and May 5 (after 7pm showing of The Incredible Speediness of Jamie Cavanaugh).
