Show Synopsis:
"Oh those 1950’s. Malt shops and sock hops, hula hoops and hot rods. There were jocks and the squares, goodie two shoes and cheerleaders. And yes of course, those leather jacket drag racers who has more grease in their hair than their engines. Come back with us again to a time when life seemed simpler. Tap your toes and laugh with us as we parody one of the all-time great nostalgia trips. All your favourite rock and roll classics of the 50’s are queued up and ready. All we need is you!"

Our talented cast takes on the best in pop culture, crafting hilarious parodies of the biggest names in movies, music, and TV for an altogether unforgettable show.

Rosebud Theatre presents Every Brilliant Thing by Duncan Macmillan and Jonny Donahoe on the Rosebud Studio Stage.
You're seven years old. Mum's in hospital. She finds it hard to be happy. You start making a list of everything worth living for. You leave it on her pillow.

A delightful tonic for the heart, Every Brilliant Thing is an epic celebration of life’s small joys, inviting the audience to join in with small, but engaging participation.

This year, we are excited to bring even more entertainment to Beaumontonians and beyond with more theatre, more comedy, more music, and just... MORE!

2022 Promises to be the biggest festival we've hosted so far! Stay tuned for who's coming because what kind of Summer is it without an Arts Festival?!

WRONG WINDOW!

St. Albert Dinner Theatre
St. Albert

Van Zandt & Milmore pay tribute to Master of Horror Alfred Hitchcock, with this comedy whodunit!
Off-and-on New York couple Marnie and Jeff enter an even more complicated phase of their relationship when they think they spy their cross-courtyard neighbor do away with his wife. After they draw their torn curtain, the lady vanishes, and suspicion places murder beyond a shadow of a doubt. The bumbling witnesses sneak into their neighbor's apartment - 39 steps away - and the fun begins. Among multiple door-slammings, body-snatchings, and a frantic flashlight chase scene, two questions remain: Who killed Lila Larswald? And… if she's not dead…then who is?

The Odd Couple

St. Albert Dinner Theatre
St. Albert

Neil Simon’s classic comedy opens as a group of the guys are in the midst of their weekly poker game in the apartment of divorced sportswriter, Oscar Madison. And if the mess is any indication, it's no wonder that his wife left him. The apartment is smoke-filled, and the only thing Oscar can offer his guests is warm Coke and moldy sandwiches. The last to arrive is Felix Ungar, who has just been thrown out by his wife. Felix is depressed and seems suicidal, leading Oscar to invite Felix to be his roommate. However, as Felix takes on the domestic mantle in the apartment and proves just how difficult he is to live with, Oscar is driven to the edge of madness. Poker nights are no longer evenings of smoke, grubbiness, and blokey behavior instead, the guys are waited on hand and foot by Felix. The final straw occurs when Felix refuses to follow through with a double-date Oscar has set up with the beautiful Pigeon sisters, who live in the same apartment block.
The clean freak and the slob come to blows, and the ultimate ‘Odd Couple’ decide they aren't a couple at all.
