Workshop Theatre:  Calgary's Longest Running Community Theatre

2015-2016 Season

All the Kings Women
A play by Luigi Jannuzzi
October 2015

The story of Elvis Presley told through the eyes of 17 Women! Some Enthralled! Some Appalled! ALL OBSESSED! A fast paced series of 5 comedic plays and 3 monologues based on the Life of Elvis Presley. From Tupelo Mississippi where 11 year old Elvis wanted a BB Gun instead of a guitar, to The Steve Allen Show, from President Richard Nixon's office, to Andy Warhol's studio, from Cadillac Salesmen, to Graceland guards, this is a touching, bring-the-family comedy with a heart that captures the effects that fame, generosity & just being a nice guy can bring to others!

 Proof
A Drama by David Auburn
November 2015

Catherine has spent years caring for her brilliant but unstable father, Robert. When he dies she has more than grief to deal with: there's her estranged sister, Claire, and Hal, a former student of her father's who hopes to find valuable work in the 103 notebooks that Robert left behind. And a further problem: how much of her father's madness or genius  will Catherine inherit?

Mounting Sex in the Afternoon Zone
A Comedy by Caroline Russell-King

In this hilarious comedy a theatre is mounting a new production of “Sex in the Afternoon”. The playwright changes the genre of the play four times before opening night. The play starts out as a British farce, then a Canadian comedy, then a musical Canadian comedy then finishes a sci-fi musical.

In Love and Warcraft

A comedy by  Madhuri Shekar

June 2016

Evie Malone- gamer girl, college senior and confirmed virgin- has it all figured out. Not only does she command a top-ranked guild in Warcraft with her online boyfriend, she also makes a little cash on the side writing love letters for people who've screwed up their relationships. Love is like Warcraft, after all. It's all about strategies, game plans, and not taking stupid risks.

Well, that's what she thinks... until she actually falls for a guy. In Real Life. And no amount of gaming expertise will help her out when she finds herself with a non-virtual, totally real, and incredibly cute boyfriend, who wants more from her than she's willing to give.
