Bullshot Crummond

“The Maltese Falcon” meets Mel Brooks in the outrageous farce “Bullshot Crummond”

Our hero Bullshot is summoned to rescue Professor Fenton, kidnapped by the malevolent German spies Otto von Brunno and his evil mistress Lenya.

Can Bullshot Crummond outwit the wicked von Brunnos, save the Professor and his guileless daughter Rosemary all the while defending the honour of the British Empire?

Can a small theatre contain a plane crash, a car chase, a saber duel, and death by dynamite?

Can you afford not to find out?


by Norm Foster, directed by Rita Arhipov

May 8-24

It all starts when Andy divulges to his friend Matt that he would like to meet a woman and be in a steady relationship. Meanwhile at the gym, Val is confiding to her friend Nina that she has been trying to figure out a way to meet a guy and is definitely not interested in any one night stands. Andy takes out a classified ad that Val answers; but only agrees to meet if it is a double date. The four middle-aged singles meet in a bar and experience a plethora of awkward, embarrassing and hilarious moments and miscommunications and romance.

“Looking, by Canadian playwright Norm Foster, is everything you’d want in an adult romantic comedy. It’s smart, sexy and, most of all, extremely funny. Ladies note: This is a play that the guys in your life are going to love too. If you’re looking for an entertaining two hours of theatre, look no further.” Lynn Peppas for the Port Colborne Tribune

Set design is by Colleen Rae Lornie and properties by Audrey Grisdale.













Private Eyes


In a rehearsal room, 2 actors rehearse a scene about the beginning of an affair under the watchful eye of their director..or is it a description of what actually happened as told to a therapist?  Or is it a play about 2 actors and a director caught in a web of lies and denial? And who is the mysterious woman that appears in several roles…
