Christopher Marlowe's Edward II, a new adaptation by Kendra Jones
Directed by Sarah Constible
Why should you love him, who the world hates so?
Out of the ashes, a society rises. Newly crowned King Edward II rules an unstable kingdom. When he raises Gaveston above the rest, his hold on power weakens. Once again, war threatens the land as jealousy and intolerance rip family, lovers and friends apart.

Kevin Anderson, Andrew Cecon, Toby Hughes, Tom Keenan, Daina Leitold, Derek Leenhouts, Mel Marginet, Tracey Nepinak, Karl Thordarson and Kevin Klassen as King Edward II.

Theatre by the River celebrates ten years producing independent, professional theatre!

The Park Theatre presents The Wet Secrets as part of our 10th Anniversary Weekend. 

The Wet Secrets is a six piece rock’n’roll dance band that plays swampy basslines, primal drumming, keys, congas & vocal harmonies galore. Formed on a dare by Lyle Bell, Trevor Anderson and Kim Rackel, the bass and horn-heavy group burst onto the scene with 2006’s A Whale of a Cow; 2007 saw the release of the fuzzed-up full-length Rock Fantasy
The Wet Secrets have signed with Six Shooter Records for their upcoming album The Tyranny of Objects, due out in early 2016.
October 2, Doors 8 / Show 9:00 pm - 11:55 pm
$10 Tickets

The Park Theatre presents The Ripperz as they release their new album with guests Dangercat and Harley James Flett.
The Ripperz’ talent, passion, and laid back style pulls in new fans at each performance. The home-style brand of rock and roll varies from folk tinged ballads to upbeat rockers with an occasional hard rock scream thrown in for good measure.

Dangercat are a four-piece punk band from Winnipeg. Their new album ‘To The Moon’ came out September, 2014. 
October 3, Doors 8 / Show 9:00 pm - 11:55 pm
The Park Theatre is proud to present The Perpetrators and The Reverend Rambler as part of our 10th Anniversary Weekend.

The Perpetrators front-man and founding member Jay Nowicki is rated one of Canada’s tastiest guitar players. Together with the rhythm section of Emmet VanEtten and John Scoles they deliver a tight, raw and intense blues experience.

The Reverend Rambler is not actually a man of the cloth. For much of the last six years, Matt Colpitts has frequently stormed Manitoba stages, issuing up foot-stomping sermons of ferocious rhythm and blues.

Andrea Graham is known as The Librarian. The Bass Coast Music Festival's co-founder and music curator has been making some very loud noises up and down the Pacific Northwest for the better part of a decade. Her knack for blending total dance floor destruction with sly subtleties and hot new exclusives makes for a consistently accessible, yet undeniably future sound.

Andrea has toured the Pacific Northwest club & festival circuit extensively, and has performed as far way as Costa Rica and throughout the midwest. She also has a bi-weekly radio show on every second Wednesday.

Do you have Parkinson’s Disease?
Do you enjoy or did you used to enjoy singing?
Do you have trouble expressing yourself through your voice or facial expressions?
Do you sometimes have a hard time recognizing how others might be feeling?

If you answered “yes”, you may be interested in a new FREE choir program developed by researchers in the SMART Lab at Ryerson University.
The choir will run for a total of 13 weeks per season, with each session lasting an hour.
This hour of singing is followed by a social hour with refreshments provided.
The choir focuses on improving vocal quality, facial expressiveness and emotion perception.

The Parkinson’s Choir involves singing both happy/upbeat songs and sad/slower songs while mirroring the choir director’s expressions for each of those emotions.
If you are interested in joining the choir, or have any questions, please contact
Esztella Vezer on 416-979-5000 Ext. 4989 or by e-mailing

Parkinson's choir may help 'masked face syndrome'

Help us keep the choir going!
Our goal is to keep the choir going for a full year and to make it accessible to more people living with Parkinson’s, so we need more help.
Please consider making a tax deductible donation through our online giving page.
