The Philadelphia Story

May 15 – October 25.

Tracy Lord is young, beautiful, wealthy, and about to get married. The Philadelphia socialite has divorced her dashing but unreliable husband and fallen in love with a self-made (but perhaps a bit dull) business tycoon. When a cynical tabloid newshound arrives to cover the ceremony, Tracy has a hard time keeping her nuptials – and her heart – on the right track. A classic romantic comedy, the play was a huge turnaround success for Katharine Hepburn’s in the late 1930s. Barry wrote it especially for her, and the play had a year-long run on Broadway before becoming a six-time Oscar nominated film in 1940.

Just as we brought our production of Saint Joan to Chicago, Belle Moral to Ottawa and Topdog/Underdog to Toronto, I am thrilled that this production – directed by Theatre Calgary’s Artistic Director Dennis Garnhum – will move to Calgary for a run in winter 2015. Another example of how we are determined to get our work out to new audiences. -JM.

Mask Of Deception

6:30 pm – 8:30 pm.

Not all is as it appears in the wild and more often than not, wildlife does whatever it can to disguise and deceive. Tricksters and charlatans have honed their abilities to become experts in camouflage, misleading and distraction. Indeed, to survive, many plants and animals play their part in nature’s great masquerade. Bring your best mask and join us for an illusionary evening of as we explore this world at our very own animal inspired masquerade party!
The program includes a special animal visitor, an interactive presentation, and a deceptively delicious dinner experience.

COST (per adult):
$65 Zoo Member, $120 Zoo Members Couple. $75 Non-Member, $140 Non-Members Couple.

When We Are Married

May 7 – October 26.

A second chance at love or a sweet escape? Married life is about to get interesting for three upstanding couples who have gathered to celebrate their joint silver wedding anniversaries. As the evening progresses, a stunning secret is revealed: none of them are actually, legally married. And as each couple grapples with this news, their relationships are vigorously and hilariously put to the test. Do they really want to be married after all? J.B. Priestley was keen to deflate the pomposity of the middle classes, and this play has been called “the funniest and among the most enduring plays that J.B. Priestley wrote.”

Like Shaw, J.B. Priestley loved to point a finger at those who took themselves and their “position” in society too seriously. He often did so dramatically (for example in An Inspector Calls last seen here in 2008) but was also hugely effective with comedy. Here you will witness the sudden confusion and discomfiture of three self-satisfied married couples, possibly with empathy, perhaps with a glimmer
of recognition (!) but certainly through gales of laughter. – JM.
