Great Progress

Joan McBride and Melissa Paulson have been rehearsing in the flex space at the Picton Library since January. The technical teams have also been hard at work developing the sound and lights that will support the performance of the Year of Magical Thinking, and it all came together for a technical rehearsal and review in June.

We are delighted to share the news that another production is in the works. Joan McBride returns to the stage this September in the one-woman show The Year of Magical Thinking. Joan will direct this play, as well as take the role of Joan Didion in this important piece of theatre. Melissa Paulson, who acted opposite Joan in Collected Stories in 2022, will be serving this production as Assistant Director.

County Weekly calls Collected Stories “Gripping Drama”

2022-09-23 A1S3-0

The County Weekly News and Belleville Intelligencer say "Two polished and professional actresses fill the stage" in Collected Stories. "There is wit and humour, jealousy and warmth. This is a forceful combination of acting talent, lovingly and beautifully presented." "This drama explores unbridled creative art, love and friendship and confidences. It is a play for true theatre fans."

Audiences love Collected Stories

"Joan and Melissa gave fabulous performances! There was such depth in those roles, and so demanding!  They took all of us in the audience on a very poignant journey." "Thank you for a remarkable performance." "With a thousand small gestures you brought Ruth’s character to life brilliantly." "All in all a first class production." 

The word is out: Collected Stories is the play you must not miss.
