Everything goes wrong when a mostly incompetent travelling theatre
company cursed by internal dissension and romantic intrigue tries to
stage Nothing On, a conventional farce. One of the funniest plays of
our time and a real physical tour de force. This is a new production of
one of Kanata Theatre's biggest hits.

directed by Beverley Brooks
March 28 to April 8, 2006
Among the wisteria blossoms and sunshine of Tuscany, two frustrated
London housewives and
two unlikely female companions recruited to help with expenses
rediscover themselves in ways they could never have expected. A play
where every single element falls perfectly into place.
by Joan Burrows, directed by Jim Holmes

Have you ever wondered what goes on behind the closed doors of the
high school staff room? Comedy and truth come together in this play
about teachers, students, and just about everyone found within
school walls. Full of comic insight that could only come from an
experienced teacher. This play was given the Best Production award
in the 2004 Theatre Ontario Festival.
And for the holiday season . . .

Musical Fairy Tale
Book and Lyrics by Bruce Coville, Music by Angela
Peterson, directed by Andrew Williams
This witch really holds a grudge. When Grizelda decides to get
revenge on King Mildred, she doesn't go halfway. She makes the
fiercest dragon the kingdom has ever seen. Now
someone's got to slay the thing. But the knights are all too
frightened, which leaves the job to an old squire, a young page, and
the most wilful princess who ever strapped on a sword. This will be
the first production of The Dragonslayers in Canada.
