The Crucible
by Arthur Miller
Directed by Tracy Leigh Campbell

Salem, Massachusetts, 1692. Rumours of witchcraft are running rampant through the quiet Puritan village. Soon fear turns to hysteria, giving young girl’s words immense power and gravity, pitting neighbour against neighbour, fueling the fire with old vendettas and betrayals, twisting truths with devastating consequences. Arthur Miller’s American classic The Crucible brings the infamous real-life Salem witch hunt to the stage in a tragic parable of power, intolerance and morality. **Please Note: This production contains intense depictions of crowd mania and violence.








The Girl Who Fell Through a Hole in her Sweater

Written by Naomi Wallace and Bruce McLeod
Directed by Elisha Conway

A delightful play for ALL ages in the Casgrain Theatre!
One day while getting ready for school a young girl named Noil falls through a hole in her sweater and is transported to a magical world. Accompanied by a “crumby” narrator, Noil must undertake an adventure of self-discovery and accomplish three and a half tasks before she can return home. While on her journey she meets a series of wild characters, such as a talking cockroach and a dancing chorus of doors and windows, whom she helps rebel against the unjust practices of their world before emerging back home in time for school.

For Ages 2 to 92







Come get swept away to the enchanted forest along with 4 rebellious youths following their hearts, a mismatched band of players chasing a dream and feuding fairies casting spells: all in the name of love and desire.
