Three elderly ladies rebel against a 1960s world that has them locked up in an old folk’s home for the destitute. After escaping in a rowboat, they are washed ashore in the village of Trotley, England where they take over an abandoned cottage. Suddenly, a mysterious stranger shows up claiming to be the cottage's real owner, Before you can say "Bob's your Uncle", he drops dead of a heart attack and the ladies hatch a convoluted plan to hide the body. A nosy neighbour, a too-helpful handyman and the arrival of the dead man's niece all contribute to high-spirited fun. Can these determined women conceal a dark secret that, if revealed, will upset all their plans to grow old...ungracefully?

The drama camp season is quickly coming to a close. So many people have made it possible for us to say, "It's been the best season yet!" First, to the campers and their families who brought their spirit, energy and love of theatre every day by 9 AM.
To Colleen Hagen, Cynthia Myers, Mark Crouse and Micci Comeau, and their extraordinary talents that they so willingly shared at the camps, thank you.
To our energizer bunnies, Savannah Maxner, Lindsey Ross, Spencer Laing, these 3 young people gave it their all, this summer. We are so pleased to have had this venue so that their talents could shine as well: singing, multitasking, stapling, patience, joy of theatre, the list goes on. Good luck as they continue their studies in the field of theatre.
To our student volunteers, Kat Lewis, Emily Dutton, Kenzie Melanson , Sophie Elliott, Katie Kelley and Noah Holleman, we appreciate all you did. Have a great year in school.
The plans for next year's camps are in the works!
See you next summer!
