The Dressing Room

"Based on the real antics of backstage life during the production of a community theatre musical, The Dressing Room is a new original comedy by local playwright Peggy Hallett. Through the span of five years, the cast of multi-generational characters make their way through five familiar musicals playing an assortment of supporting chorus members, divas, and eventually production members, all while balancing the drama of real life. Sometimes there's more going on backstage than on stage!" (From kingstongrand.ca.) By arrangement with the playwright.

"John Dale hasn't enjoyed a 'real Christmas' for years. So, on the spur of the moment, he decides to 'rent' a Christmas from Anne Weston, who owns the local rent shop. Anne is at first flustered with the requirements: a tree with presents, Christmas carols and also a wife and five children. Anne feels she has solved the problem of a Christmas family by calling the actors' guild. But the young actors come down with the measles so she turns to the local orphanage. When the guild can't locate a 'mother,' Anne steps in to play the role herself." (From pioneerdrama.com.) By arrangement with Pioneer Drama Service.
Produced by Nicole Butler.

"Erin and Paul have just gotten married and couldn't be more excited. Ron and Diane have been married for years and aren't so excited anymore. Poignant and hilarious by turns, Married Alive! uses a series of vignettes to affectionately explore the adventure of marriage. From honeymooning to "honey-not-tonight," from couples' therapy to Christmas with the in-laws, from first pregnancy to dealing with teenagers, this musical comedy has it all." (From playscripts.com.)
