Singin’ in the Rain takes place during the rise of the “talkies” where we meet silent-film era stars, Don Lockwood and Lina Lamont, beautiful, charismatic and influential, who combined, make a great on-screen pair.

Act of Faith by Janet Munsil

Dates and Venue April 11 - 20. 2019, 8pm | The Cultch, 1895 Venables St, Vancouver, BC .

After years living with paraplegia, Faith can suddenly walk, and believes she has been healed by a miracle. But, what about those closest to her? What about her friends and family? What happens when everything we believe to be true about ourselves, or those closest to us, is challenged by new information? A new play inspired in part by the true story of the mysterious recovery by a young Vancouver woman who lived with paraplegia for 13 years, Act of Faith asks, if you aren’t religious, can you still believe in a miracle? It is the story of a life changing and controversial event that baffled the medical community, aroused conflicting emotions in the disability community, and was celebrated by some in the religious community.

Based on the works of The Cat in the Hat, this musical tells the story of Horton, an elephant who discovers a speck of dust that contains the "Whos", including Jojo, a Who child sent off to military school for thinking too many “thinks.” Horton faces a double challenge: not only must he protect the Whos from a world of naysayers and dangers, but he must guard an abandoned egg, left in his care by the irresponsible Mayzie La Bird. Although Horton faces ridicule, danger, kidnapping and a trial, the intrepid Gertrude McFuzz never loses faith in him. Ultimately, the powers of friendship, loyalty, family and community are challenged and emerge triumphant.

Close to four thousand Indigenous men and women served in the Canadian Forces during the Great War, an extraordinary number given the limited civil rights accorded to them at the time. Canadian federal policy offered postwar benefits to Indigenous veterans, but many had given up their status in order to enlist and were denied these benefits upon their return to Canada. By the end of the war, several Indigenous soldiers had achieved near legendary status as scouts, trench-raiders, and snipers, drawing on their pre-wartime experience in hunting and wilderness survival.
