SAFETY PLAN

OUR COVID-19 POLICY: Our in-depth COVID-19 safety plan has been approved, so you’ll find a few changes the next time you visit! We’ve implemented rigorous measures such as frequent sanitizing, one-way flow around the theatre, masks for all our staff members, no concession, physically distanced seating, and the option to watch live shows online from the comfort of your home.

Everyone has a part to play in keeping our community healthy. In order to safely enjoy great theatre, we’re asking all our patrons:

• If you’re experiencing any symptoms of illness, however mild, or if you’re required to self-isolate – stay home! With a ticket, you can watch the show online instead

• Please clean your hands at the sanitizing station at the theatre entrance upon arrival

• Please maintain social distancing at all times, and follow the one-way traffic flow (with patron’s exit by the stage door)

• After checking in at the box office, please go straight to your seat and do not wait in the lobby. Note that season tickets can be picked up at the concession counter, and if you’re buying your ticket at the box office, we will need to record your name and phone number

• Please note that in order to maintain physical distancing, we are limiting the number of people in the washrooms at one time

Because of physical distancing, seat numbers are greatly reduced, so you’ll need to book early if you want to attend a performance in-person. Season ticket holders will be allowed to reserve their seats first. Again, we’ll also be offering the choice of watching the show online from home – but only if you have a ticket and reservation!

THE RED PRIEST (EIGHT WAYS TO SAY GOODBYE)

By Mieko Ouchi
Directed by Keltie Forsythe

In 1740, Antonio Vivaldi is commissioned to teach a woman to play violin before the King of France…in six weeks’ time. Is such a performance possible? And why would either agree to this? In this lush and resonant play by Canadian Mieko Ouchi, the challenges of teaching and the beauty of music are laid bare.

Preview: November 12 ($15.00)
Opening: November 13
Talkback: November 19

SHE SELLS SEA SHELLS

By Helen Eastman (North American Premiere)
Directed by Sarah Rodgers

When she was twelve, Mary Anning discovered the first ichthyosaur, and she became an important, if forgotten, paleontologist. Known primarily from the children’s tongue-twister that she inspired, Anning’s life challenges us to see the beauty buried in the stones beneath our feet.

Preview: January 21 ($15.00)
Opening: January 22
Talkback: January 28

SILENT SKY

By Lauren Gunderson

Preview: March 25 ($15.00)
Opening: March 26

THE HERE AND THIS AND NOW

By Glenn Waldron (North American Premiere)
Directed by Lauren Taylor

Four pharmaceutical reps work on their pitch for the miracle drug they are asked to sell. This play lays bare the ethics of marketing medications, where style and substance must compete with each other. Things take a darkly comic turn when it turns out the drug could have saved the world.

Opening: June 4
Matinées: All Sundays (June 6, 13, 20, 27)
