News (Calgary): Workshop Theatre’s 2014-15 Season Announcement

9070993-congratulation-45-number-forty-five-in-silver-letters-on-a-silver-pedestal-3dWe are very pleased to present the line-up for our 45th season. This coming year will be all about serial killers, another evening at Fawlty Towers, a miscarriage of justice and a twist on Shakespeare.

Jack the Ripper Monster of Whitechapel
By Joe Dickinson
September 2014
Victor Mitchell Theatre
A comical but scary treatment of the serial killer who terrorized London in the 1800′s. Many of the characters and events are taken right from history, but others are pure comic invention.

Another Evening at Fawlty Towers
Based on the British television comedy
November/December 2014
Victor Mitchell Theatre
It’s back by popular demand! Basil and Sybil will have the hotel ready for guests. There will be three acts from this popular British comedy: Waldorf Salad, The Anniversary and Gourmet Night!

Steven, The Steven Truscott Story
February 2015
Joyce Doolittle Theatre
In the summer of 1959, a sleepy town in rural Ontario was rocked by a tragedy that changed the community forever and sent shock waves around the world. A 12-year-old girl named Lynne Harper was found raped and strangled to death. Days later, 14-year-old Steven Truscott was charged with her murder. After a two week trial by jury, the boy was found guilty and sentenced to hang, making him the youngest person to sit on Canada’s death row.

Goodnight Desdemona (Good Morning Juliet)
By Anne-Marie Macdonald
May 2015
Victor Mitchell Theatre
What if Shakespeare’s greatest tragedies were actually comedies? After a professor steals her thesis, Constance Ledbelly is transported into the Bard’s world of Othello and Romeo & Juliet, where she inadvertently sends his stories in new directions. With an abundance of twists, fights, seductions and wild surprises, Constance engages in a truly hilarious Elizabethan tale
of self-discovery.

All shows will be held at the Pumphouse Theatres. Season tickets are $80 for Adults and $60 for Students/Seniors. Season tickets will be sold on-line soon at www.workshoptheatre.org. Stay tuned for exact show dates.
