The Oakville Players Presents:

Mary Rose

by J.M. Barrie

November 18-22, 2015

From the writer of Peter Pan comes the story of Mary Rose, a girl who mysteriously vanishes when vacationing with her parents in the Scottish isles. Given up for dead, she returns a month later with no memory of her disappearance or of any time passing. She moves on with her life, but the island still calls to her. J.M. Barrie weaves a touching story of love, humour, innocence, and loss.

 

 

 

The Oakville Players Presents:

Miss Shakespeare

by Tracey Power

March 9-13, 2016

Miss Shakespeare imageBehind the dingy walls of The Cage Tavern, six women explore the seductive power of the theatre. With a musical score influenced by underground European Cabaret, the women embrace their voice and their desire to be free. However, the law is not on their side and if these artists are to truly have a voice, they must find the courage to get beyond the walls and in front of an audience. Entertaining and a bit naughty!

ONE ACT Play Festival – Late May 2016 – Dates to be determined

Each Year the Oakville Players presents a One Play Festival outside of the main stage productions that are produced as part of the Oakville Drama Series. There is no admission and the festival takes place in a studio venue. The One Act Festival allows members to take part in a production that doesn’t have the risk and pressure of a main stage production. New directors, actors and crew have this opportunity to hone their craft and get the experience necessary before taking on larger projects. Everyone is welcome to attend and support all the hard work and time that goes into these short plays.

As well as a perfect opportunity for members to take on new roles in the productions we have recently created a playwright mentoring program so that there is also an opportunity for new playwrights to meet with others and work with a more experienced playwright to get their plays ready to be produced on stage. The One Act Festival is also an opportunity for them to workshop their plays and work directly with the director and cast.
