Ethereal Fantazy Prod. presents Chess, The Musical!! 
A world chess championship match between an American and a Russian grandmaster during the Cold War, where romantic rivalries and US-Soviet political tensions are put into play to the pulse of a monumental rock score by Björn Ulvaeus and Benny Andersson (Mamma Mia), and lyrics by Tim Rice (Jesus Christ Superstar). 
This Winnipeg premiere will take you from Italy to Thailand and will show you that there’s nothing black and white about this game except the game board.

Manitoba Theatre For Young People, 2 Forks Market Road, Winnipeg, Manitoba R3C 4X1
Peacock Place, written by Sue Proctor, is a wacky collision of the world of social work and legal drama with clown. A burned out social worker, weary of her job seeks out advice from a clown in Peacock Place. She creates an alter ego - a clown character, and begins her double life. The realism of the ‘real world’ creates a logical foundation for the magic of the clown experience. Suitable for all ages.
Directed by TeriLynn Friesen

Revenge of the Meek, written & directed by Andrew Lizotte
Jesus has just left the building. The church is in some dire straights and in need a major overhaul. Will Christianity survive in this story of a would be profit named Randy, rogue poets, and astrological uncertainty! See the show that dares to blur the line between spirituality and fiscal responsibility, with JOKES!

SHARDS - Writer/Director: Wren Hookey
Jennifer Hooper & Hailley Rhoda
Stage Manager: Jennifer Bahniuk
No matter how much we pretend we’re safe, there is increasing violence all around us. Through a series of thought-provoking disconnected scenes and monologues, this play explores the many ways violence manifests itself in our everyday lives.
Ranging from the metaphoric to the realistic, this intense, provocative, and at times darkly funny play raises complex questions that have no easy answers.

Asper Centre for Theatre & Film, 400 Colony Street, Winnipeg, Manitoba
From the company that brought you Rope (5 STARS – CBC, Best Theatrical Production of 2013 – The Uniter) and Orphans (5 STARS, Best Local Production – CBC) comes Tape by Stephen Belber.

Questions of motive, memory, truth and perception writhe underneath the surface as Vince forces long-time friend Jon to confess that he raped Vince’s old girlfriend, Amy. Tensions rise as Amy enters the fray and the three must determine what the past has meant and what the future holds.

Winnipeg Studio Theatre, 140 Rupert Street, Winnipeg, Manitoba

From Broadway to Obscurity is a high energy, funny musical about making hard choices for the right reasons. Dreams collide in this revealing confessional. At the peak of his career in the 4-time Tony Nominated smash hit Jersey Boys on Broadway, Eric Gutman made the decision to return to Detroit so that he could raise his two young daughters.

From the company that brought you Altar Boyz, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, and Spring Awakening. Don't miss this new exciting Canadian Premiere Musical.

Break out you leg warmers, mousse the hair, and get ready to jam to the clean, improv comedy style that is as rad as an after school episode of Degrassi Jr. High. IT’S THE RASCALS COUNTDOWN – a tribute to the 80’s in an improv countdown (they perform scenes, and you vote for your favourites).
The late shows are more like Twisted Sister (no one under 16 permitted).

The Purple Room, 72 Princess St. 3rd Floor

Mad Cows Production presents Coriolanus by William Shakespeare
Discount Tickets: $9 for Matinees
Friends, family, country or lovers: for whom would you fight and die? And what if protecting these things meant sacrificing all your principles? Reared to be a fighting machine, Coriolanus’ beliefs will not allow him to flatter the politicians and pander to the Roman populace. And a man who refuses to kiss political arse is a man who faces certain doom.
Warnings: Sexual Content, Violent Content
