40th anniversary season an all Canadian affair

Cranbrook Community Theatre announces its lineup for the 2014/2015 theatre year


To celebrate its 40th year in the historic Studio/Stage Door, Cranbrook Community Theatre (CCT) will be presenting an all Canadian line-up for the 2014/15 theatre year.

The season will open in October with “Halo” by Nova Scotia playwright Josh MacDonald, directed by Terry Miller.

When an image of Jesus appears on the side of a Tim Hortons restaurant, the residents of the small fictional Nova Scotia town of Nately are faced with questions of faith, life and love.

The second show is the premiere of Cranbrook playwright Mary Hamilton’s young adult play “Siona MacDuff”. New director Carter Gulseth takes the helm of this show about friendship, peer pressure and family. “Siona MacDuff” will run in January 2015.

To wrap up the season, director Killeen Delorme will be presenting a yet-to-be-determined Canadian play. The final show will be in late winter/early spring.

“An all Canadian season is the perfect way to mark our 40th year in the Studio/Stage Door,” said CCT’s production manager Jennifer Inglis. “The plays this season have something for everyone and I’m very excited to feature the work of Cranbrook playwright Mary Hamilton.”

Auditions for “Halo” were to be held Thursday, June 19 at 7 p.m. and Saturday, June 21 at 1 p.m. at the Stage Door theatre.
