On Christmas Eve, we watch a young Charles Dickens try desperately to keep a roof over his head  We join him in an extraordinary dream, in which he is visited, assisted and entertained by 14 characters from 7 of his yet-to-be-written novels. The music of the play is a wonderful collection of seventeen Dickens period Christmas songs.

Whatever Happened to Once Upon a Time

by Alexi Alfieri

Directed by Betty Ford

What really happened after “once upon a time”? ! A substitute narrator is called in on short notice to present stories from a stack of fairy tale books. But just as each tale begins its ”once upon a time,” the main characters show up to interrupt and correct the newbie narrator’s telling of their story. Turns out, these characters have hysterical idiosyncrasies: Rapunzel is an insufferable diva, Cinderella is a clean freak, the Three Little Pigs are hypochondriacs, Little Red Riding Hood is a lawyer defending the Wolf, and more. The chaos continues until the frustrated narrator finally breaks down. It’s up to the characters to comfort the narrator and explain what really happened after “once upon a time.” Wouldn’t you know? Everyone lived happily ever after, of course!

Once Upon a Mattress

If you thought you knew the story of ‘The Princess and The Pea,’ you may be in for a walloping surprise! Did you know, for instance, that Princess Winnifred actually swam the moat to reach Prince Dauntless the Drab? Or that it may not have been the pea at all that caused the princess a sleepless night? Carried on a wave of beguiling songs, by turns hilarious and raucous, romantic and melodic, this rollicking spin on the familiar classic of royal courtship and comeuppance provides for some side-splitting shenanigans. Chances are, you’ll never look at fairy tales quite the same way again.

Steel Magnolias is the bittersweet story of six women who gather under the dryers at Truvy’s Beauty Salon to share gossip, laughter, recipes and beauty secrets on four significant days across three years of their lives in a small US southern town. When tragedy strikes, they face it with sass and strength. Infused with heart and humour, it is a hilarious story of love, loss and enduring friendship.
