Here on the Flight Path

August 2nd-6th
By Norm Foster (From The Foster Festival in St. Catharines)

Starring Jamie Williams & Melanie Janzen
Director: Blair Williams


Setting: the top floor, side by side balconies of apartments at the Aurora Terrace Apts.

John Cummings writes Cummings and Goings for the local paper. Fay is a high end call girl who isn’t ashamed of her occupation but is brainy enough to better herself. Angel is a small town girl hoping to break it as a singer – loves Broadway but ends up writing “hurtin’ songs”. Gwen recently arrived from Vancouver having left her husband. She ends up having an affair with John who is a divorced dad who can’t commit. (Melanie plays all three women!) The hilarious action centres on John’s relationships with the revolving female tenants who move in to the next door apartment.

Jamie and Melanie are husband and wife in real life. Melanie Janzen was the very funny “boss” lady in our 2015 production of One Moment. She also has starred in The Ladies Foursome.

Beneath Springhill – The Maurice Ruddick Story

WINNER Best Solo Performance – Calgary Critics Awards
WINNER Best New Play (TYA Division) – Dora Mavor Moore Awards
WINNER Best Individual Performance (TYA Division) – Dora Mavor Moore Awards
NOMINATED Best Touring Play – Calgary Critics Awards
NOMINATED Best Director (Linda Kash) – Dora Mavor Moore Awards
NOMINATED Best Male Performance – Betty Mitchell Awards

September 20th- 24th

Created and performed by Beau Dixon
Directed by Linda Kash


This chamber musical chronicles the life of Maurice Ruddick, an African Canadian who survived the historic mining disaster in Springhill, Nova Scotia in 1958. Ruddick – an African Canadian – was awarded “Citizen of the Year” for saving the lives of his fellow workers. This one man show will recall the events of seven miners trapped two miles beneath a small mining town, the effect it had on their rural Canadian community and the racial tension that surfaced as a result. Actor Beau Dixon amazingly portrays 10 characters: Maurice; the six miners whose lives he was credited with saving; a news reporter; Valerie, one of Ruddick’s 13 children; and Ruddick’s wife, Norma! Beneath Springhill is a story filled with tragedy, drama and comical – yet conflicting moments of hope and bravery.

Evalyn Parry takes her audience on an uncommon theatrical and musical journey in SPIN, celebrating the Bicycle as muse, musical instrument and agent of social change. Inspired by the true tale of Annie Londonderry – the first woman to ride around the world on a bicycle in 1894 – Parry spins a web of stories which travel from 19th century women’s emancipation to 21st century consumer culture. Parry’s “co-star” is a vintage bicycle: suspended in a mechanic’s stand on stage. The bike is played from fenders to spokes to bells by percussionist Brad Hart, conjuring a unique accompaniment to Parry’s songs and monologues.
