A GOOD WAY OUT by Cara Norrish – Sept 23-Oct 15 – WORLD PREMIERE!
Joey is a hardworking mechanic who operates as the front man for a biker gang. He joined for protection, but a few bad decisions have him looking for an escape that may not exist. The world premiere of a fierce, compelling look into the precarious world of crime and compromise.
Directed by Anthony F. Ingram. Featuring Robert Salvador, Andrew Wheeler, Corina Akeson, and Evelyn Chew.
Audience Advisory: Strong Language
SUITCASE STORIES by Maki Yi – Oct 28-Nov 12 – WORLD PREMIERE!
With only her tiny suitcase in tow, Maki leaves her home in South Korea and takes off for Canada, simply because her brother had a map of Toronto. A cross-crountry tale of survival and self-discovery that began as a series of pre-show monologues in the Pacific Theatre lobby, this wonderful one-woman show is filled with all the winsome vulnerability and plucky humour of the originals.
Directed by Colleen Lanki. Featuring Maki Yi.
HOLY MO: A CHRISTMAS SHOW by Lucia Frangione – Dec 2-31 – WORLD PREMIERE!
Folly, Guff, and Buffoona are back! And this time, it’s Christmas. A reverently irreverent re-imagining of the Nativity told with gusto and a questionable commitment to accuracy by Pacific Theatre’s three favourite fools.
Directed by Kerry van der Griend. Featuring Lucia Frangione, Anita Wittenberg, and Jess Amy Shead.
CHRISTMAS PRESENCE – Dec 12, 13, 19, 20 (Valley: Dec 17)
Pacific Theatre’s favourite holiday tradition: all-you-can-eat feast of music and stories for the holidays featuring our favourite local musicians.
CORLEONE by David Mann – Feb 3-25
a guest production by Classic Chic Productions
A classic tale of power, destiny, betrayal and honour: what if Shakespeare had written The Godfather? This brilliant comic premise takes on surprising dramatic power as Coppola’s movie masterpiece shows itself to be true Elizabethan tragedy. Performed by Classic Chic’s all-female cast, this mash-up of classic film and classical theatre ultimately charts the dizzying fall of a human soul.
VALLEY SONG by Athol Fugard – Mar 24-Apr 8
originally produced by Gateway Theatre
Torn between the hope of the new South Africa and the familiarity of all he has known, Abraam “Buks” Jonkers tills land he will never own while his granddaughter dreams of the Johannesburg stage. A heartfelt story of tradition, change, and the resilience of the human spirit.
Directed by Jovanni Sy. Featuring David Adams and Sereana Malani.
OUTSIDE MULLINGAR by John Patrick Shanley – May 19-June 10
A pair of introverted misfits, Rosemary and Anthony’s families have lived on neighbouring farms as far back as anyone can remember, where they battle over property lines and childhood stories but never what matters most. A quirky, flawed story of love and some kind of happiness told with effortless wit and poetic Irish lyricism.
Directed by Angela Konrad. Featuring Ron Reed, Erla Faye Forsyth, Rebecca deBoer, and John Emmet Tracy.

THE ARTISTIC DIRECTOR’S SERIES
TESTAMENT – April 12-15 – ORIGINAL CREATION!

SIDESHOW – March 3 & 4
Hold onto your hats for another round of improv and sketch comedy with the PT crew. A family-friendly favourite
