Alice in Wonderland

Wed. Nov. 25, 8pm, talkback after the performance
Fri. Nov. 27, 8pm
Seven-year-old Alice is sleepy and bored one afternoon when she suddenly notices a quite well-dressed white rabbit with a pocket watch rush by. She follows the white rabbit down the rabbit hole and her adventures begin. When she drinks, she shrinks and when she eats cake she grows. And mushrooms really mess with her size. She goes to a mad tea party where she meets a hatter, a hare and a sleepy door mouse who riddle her silly. And then there’s the Queen of Hearts, who has a thing about severing heads. Sounds like fun for everyone.
Tues. Nov. 24, 8pm
Thurs. Nov. 26, 8pm, talk back after the performance
Sat. Nov. 28, 8pm
Mary and Elizabeth—most powerful, most complicated—orbit each other in jealous longing. They make warnings of themselves: we are the dangers of political righteousness. These upstart queens navigate the snarl of a divinely appointed monarchy dominated by religious doctrine. At times the rules and rituals of the 16th century can feel desperately out of reach. Unravelling beneath our fingers is a life or death power play between two exceptional leaders. They are engaged in the ultimate performance.
Wednesday, April 3 - Saturday, April 6, 2019
William Shakespeare's brilliant and beautiful play "Twelfth Night" is probably his greatest comedy. It's poignant, poetic and genuinely funny. Theatre at Grenfell is putting a unique sci-fi spin on Shakespeare's tale of love, mistaken identity and crazy romance.
"Twelfth Night," featuring the work of Grenfell Theatre's graduating class, is directed by Michael Waller. Set and costume designed by Renate Pohl and Lighting designed by Jamie Skidmore.
Wednesday, March 6 – Saturday, March 9, 2019
David Adjmi's Marie Antoinette is a contemporary take on the (in)famous queen, steeped in celebrity culture, pop music, and the entitled extravagance of the idle rich. Two different actresses tackle the title role, flanked by an incompetent king, a talking sheep, courtiers, nobles, and a number of revolutionaries bent on turning the world upside down. A playful and dark satire that asks whether history has been unduly cruel to its heroine, this production is more than just a bite of cake! Directed by Katharine McLeod, set and costumes by roy Hansen-robitschek and lighting design by Jamie Skidmore. Cast and crew are our own second and third year acting and technical students.
October 31 - November 3, 2018
An indoor soccer field somewhere in suburban North America. There is a sense that the field goes on forever. Winter. Saturdays.
Multi-award winning play The Wolves is a funny, truthful, and heartbreaking look at contemporary North American society - through the lens of a ‘girls’ U17 (under 17 years of age) soccer team. As these young women warm-up for games, their hopes and fears surface through talk of school-work, relationships and sexuality, changing friendships, and family pressures.
The Wolves is masterfully structured, and a true ensemble piece which allows both students and audiences to have a unique, compelling and deeply felt evening in the theatre.
Turkeys, Turkeys and More Turkeys
November 21 - 24, 2018
It's French, it's foolish, it's frisky, it's farce! It's Feydeau at his finest.
Turkeys, Turkeys and More Turkeys is an adaptation of George Feydeau's
Le Dindon (The Turkey), written and directed by theatre faculty member, Jerry Etienne and featuring the talents of second, third and fourth-year students.
Oh, my god, oh, my god, oh, my god! Will Monsieur Pontagnac succeed in his seduction of Madame Lucienne Vatelin? Will Monsieur Rédillon ever convince Lucienne that he loves her? Will her husband, Crépin, ever escape the carnal clutches and killer coffee of Madame Mitzi Soldignac? Will her husband, Hans, ever catch Crépin cuckolding him? For the answers to all these questions and much much more, please join us November 21 - 24 and bring tissues to wipe away the tears of laughter!

Perfection, symmetry, elegance, pristine, fluidity - word to describe something that is beautiful. However, beauty is often so much moere and could be found in so much less. One's ability to find beauty in simplicity, in creation, in nuances, in what is different allows for a more enthralling and contemplative experience.
