Community Theatre in the Heart of Toronto’s Annex.

Next up

There Goes The Bride, by Ray Cooney and John Chapman, a flashback to the 1970s directed by Martin Edmonds. Showing at the Tranzac Stage April 26-27-28 and May 3-4-5, 2018.

Timothy Westerby is overworked, underpaid, stressed out, and his daughter is getting married in what he thinks is an overly-lavish and overly-expensive ceremony. Timothy is ripe for a nervous breakdown – and, on the morning of the wedding, he has one in the form of Polly, a gorgeous, voluptuous girl who just wants to give herself to Timothy. Timothy is delighted to have this sexy guest at the wedding, but Timothy’s wife, mother-in-law, daughter, and the groom’s parents take a different view!

NAGs news

What a fantastic run we had for Beauty and the Beast! Seven out of nine shows were completely sold out, and the remaining two were still very busy. Many told us it was the NAGs’ best panto EVER, which makes us worry about how we top it in 2019! Ben Crocker provided us with a script that had all the necessary elements of a pantomime, including lots of silly situations. Brian Russell found some terrific songs and provided clever revised lyrics and beautiful harmonies. The cast embraced everything with full enthusiasm and delivered an energetic and fun performance with beautiful singing. Choreographer Jenny Pullon got everyone grooving to those tunes. Stage Manager Ben Ireland and his team kept the scenery moving. And the production team (overseen by Producer Martin Edmonds) – well, they produced amazingly! Costumes, makeup, props, set, lighting, sound, front of house… it was all wonderful. Our heartfelt thanks go to all those who came out to support the show.

So now we’re “resting”, which means we’re getting ready for the next show while still finishing off loose ends (such as cleanup and post-production meetings) from the panto. It never ends… and we wouldn’t have it any other way.
