2023 - 2024 SEASON

The Savannah Sipping Society

Fall 2023

Four Southern women, all needing to escape the sameness of their day-to-day routines, are drawn together by Fate - and an impromptu happy hour - and decide it's high time to reclaim the enthusiasm for life they've lost through the years.  Rana, Dot, Marlafaye, and Jinx, middle-aged women successfully bond and find the confidence to jumpstart their new lives over the course of six months.  Together they discover lasting friendships and a renewed determination to live in the moment - and most importantly, realize it's never too late to make new old friends.  So raise your glass to these strong Southern women and their fierce embrace of life and say "Cheers!"

Book by James Wooten, Jessie Jones, and Nicholas Hope.
Directed by Rob Ferron, Produced by Lara Roberts
Staring Patsy McVicars, Julie Price Martel, Jennifer Ritchie, and Rosemary Sidorko

Estrangement

Early Spring 2024

This play explores identity, family, place, connection, and estrangement, the act of being a stranger in a place of belonging, and the mixing of many cultures in the economic shift between the fur trade and the forestry and rail industries..  It is about a mother and her daughter, their lives through massive shifts.  Their positions and identities throw them into a crushing sense of time towards starvation.  This play is also about resourcefulness and resilience.  It is a play about Indigenous success and capability.

A Coproduction with Hiraeth Collective, Written and Directed by Terre Chartard

Date and Location TBD

Hamlet Cha, Cha, Cha!

Late Spring 2024

Totally insane.  And totally hilarious.  You all know the story of Hamlet - but never has a plot line been followed by such gleefully drunken footsteps, singing all the way!  Picture the soliloquy don by Prince Hamlet with a back up male chorus chanting "Doo Waaah" at inappropriate intervals.  And how about Queen Gertrude, backed up by the female chorus [the "Elsinoritas,"of course], telling Laertes about Ophelia's dreadful death in a hand clapper called "Down, Down, Down the River!"?  Believe us, if you've always hated Shakespearean plays, you'll love this show, but paradoxically, if you've always loved Shakespearian plays, you'll love this show despite yourself!
