This play-within-a-play captures a touring theatre troupe’s production of Nothing On in three stages: dress rehearsal, the opening night and a performance towards the end of a run. Frayne gives us a window into the inner workings of theatre, progressing from flubbed lines and missed cues in the rehearsal to mounting friction between cast members in the final performance. Noises Off is a backstage farce, complete with slamming doors, falling trousers and flying sardines!

The story follows The Baker and his wife who wish to have a child, Cinderella who wishes to go the King’s Festival, and Jack who wishes his cow would give some milk. When the Baker and his wife are visited by the neighborhood witch, who reveals to them that she placed a curse on their family, the two set off on a journey into the woods to reverse the curse. Once everyone has gotten their wish and will seemingly live happily ever after, we see how the consequences of their actions haunt them in disastrous ways. The community must come together to save each other and their kingdom, but sacrifices must be made.

An original comedy written and directed
by Ross Murray
As Dani and Cynthia gather with their parents at Blueberry Point on the shores of Lake Memphremagog, they imagine the only thing that could possibly ruin their wedding day is some “local color” camped out on the rocks with his cooler of beer. But the ceremony is soon interrupted by Dex, a swimmer who claims to have seen Memphre, the legendary creature of the lake. Foundations are rattled and secrets are revealed in a comedy that asks just how far you’re willing to believe.

Unger and Madison are at it again! Florence Unger and Olive Madison, that is, in Neil Simon's hilarious contemporary comic classic: the female version of The Odd Couple. The show focuses on these two women as they find their place in the world and workforce in 1980's New York City. Where Olive is messy, untidy, and unconcerned about the state of her apartment, Florence is obsessively clean, tidy, and obsessed with hygiene. Olive's easy-going outlook on life soon clashes with Florence's highly-strung neurotic tendencies, testing their friendship to the limit.
