Phlabeta

The issue of literacy is addressed through comedic and dramatic sketches. From a blue-collar worker to a Vaseline-obsessed layman to the Prince of Darkness himself, Phlabeta illustrates, at times with humour and other times with sensitivity, that people from all walks of life struggle with literacy.

Tickets: $8. Available at The ARTS Project box office, 519-642-2767.

                              Writers Block

                              “The truth we have in our minds bleeds into our sanity…always with consequences.”

                              Writers Block is about a young fantasy novelist named Maria coming to terms with the reality of life. She struggles to cope with both the fantastical and mundane aspects of her life only to realize that they are clashing. Maria begins the journey to self-realization by reuniting with her long absent mother and embarking on a dangerous but ultimately necessary quest for truth.

                              This play and program have been developed with the assistance of an “all star” cast of local theatre luminaries: Jeff Culbert, Peter Desbarats, Don Fleckser, Kathyrn Immonen, Victoria Keidan, Niki Kemeny, Andy Mawdsley, Jayson McDonald, Stephen Mitchell, Jason Rip, Meredith Scott, & Mike Semple.

                              TheatreWORKS is a unique pilot project, funded by Human Resources Development Canada, that provides six months of comprehensive theatre training to talented youth who are experiencing barriers to employment. The program culminates in a full-scale dramatic production in which all writing, directing, technical, and acting roles are filled by the program participants under the guidance of local theatre professionals.

                              Tickets: $10 in advance, $12 at the door. Available from The ARTS Project box office, 519-642-2767.
