The Geniusettes Collective | Created by Masae Day and Mark Weatherley
Mozart And Her Brother tells the story of Maria Anna Mozart (known as Nannerl) and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart as they grow up touring the great cities of Europe. Although she was a brilliant musician, and possibly even more skilled than her famous brother, Nannerl was eventually left behind by her family and by history. Although we know she wrote music, no known copies of it have survived.
November 15 – 19, 2022 | 7:30pm & 3pm Saturday
Written and performed by Brendan McLeod & The Fugitives
Often called the “battle that made Canada,” Vimy Ridge resulted in over 10,000 Canadian casualties. Through direct storytelling, verbatim theatre, and live music, Brendan McLeod examines misconceptions and varying perspectives around the battle, while drawing parallels to other formative events in our nation’s past. Featuring inventive musical interpretations of WWI soldier songs, Ridge probes difficult yet necessary questions about how and why we grieve.

Anyone who has driven a car, been driven in a car, or been driven mad by their own family will laugh, cry and gasp.
THE HOW & THE WHY
April 11 – 15, 2023 | 7:30pm & 3pm Saturday
Aenigma Theatre | Written by Sarah Treem
Evolution, Feminism and Destiny collide in Sarah Treem’s (House of Cards,The Affair) poignant play about science, family, and the difficult choices that women face. Why do women menstruate? Modern science has supplied us with the “How”, but no one seems to have answered the “Why”. Rachel, a young grad student in Evolutionary Biology visits Zelda, a pioneer of the field. She posits a radical new hypothesis to answer this very question, which just happens to challenge Zelda’s own ground-breaking work. As the two brilliant women spar over their contrary views on science, career and generational divides, the ulterior motives surrounding their intense meeting slowly begin to unravel…
THE WAR OF 1812
May 09 – 13, 2023 | 7:30pm & 3pm Saturday
Written by Wes Borg and Paul Mather
Wes Borg, Morgan Cranny, Rod Peter Jr and Mike Delamont bring you the funniest history lesson of a lifetime! A young boy hates Canada until the ghost of Pierre Berton takes him on a tour of Canadian History, from the tennis ball battle fields of York to a Laura Secord mega musical, all in a Birchbark Time Canoe!
I regard the theatre as the greatest of all art forms, the most immediate way in which a human being can share with another the sense of what it is to be a human being.
