Upcoming Events

Jonas & Barry in The Home @ King's Wharf Theatre
Jul 19 – Aug 5 all-day

Canada’s favourite playwright, Norm Foster, has another hit with a brand new comedy filled with big laughs and an even bigger heart.

Two seniors are searching for friendship, love, and elusive happiness at the Gateway Gardens assisted living home. Barry Butterfield, a newly retired dentist, is unsure of what to do with all his free time. Jonas Ainsworth, a suave stage actor, spends his days wooing the ladies. Proving opposites attract, the men quickly become an inseparable duo and embark on clever ways to spice up their lives – and the lives of those around them.

A mirthful and thoughtful exploration of friendships forged and relationships renewed, Jonas & Barry in the Home is a testament to living each day to the fullest – regardless of your age or stage in life.

By turns dazzling, explosive, and electrifying, Joseph is truly a technicolor triumph!

Journey back to the ancient land of Canaan for an enchanting story of faith and forgiveness as the biblical tale of Joseph is chronicled with sparkling wit, irreverence, and imagination. When Joseph’s father gives him a fabulous coat of many colors, his 11 jealous brothers hatch a devious scheme to sell him into slavery. But Joseph rises above his bleak circumstances due to his ability to interpret dreams, and becomes one of the most powerful men in Egypt.

Don’t miss the rollicking musical masterpiece packed with incredible dance numbers, plenty of laughter, and catchy tunes like “Go, Go, Go Joseph,” “Any Dream Will Do,” and “Close Every Door.”
