Once again, this will be the Canadian Premiere of this adaptation of the unfinished work by  one of England's most celebrated novelists, Jane Austen. 

Poor Emma Watson. Raised in luxury by a wealthy aunt and destined to be an heiress, but she comes down to earth with a bump when forced to return, penniless, to her impoverished birth family. And what a family!

Chauvinistic brother Robert and his appalling social-climbing wife, Jane; garrulous spinster Elizabeth and man-mad Margaret. Not to mention their curmudgeonly pseudo-invalid father and eccentric family retainer, Nanny.

With no option but to join her hilariously unsuccessful sisters in their hunt for husbands, Emma soon comes to the attention of charming local playboy Tom Musgrave and his suspiciously shy friend Lord Osborne, as well as Lord Osborne’s former tutor-turned-clergyman, Mr Howard. But the path of true love runs anything but smooth and it is a local scandal which finally paves the way for Emma’s - and her family’s - future happiness.

Jane Austen abandoned her novel The Watsons in 1805, possibly due to the death of her father that year.  Described as a ‘sparkling adaptation’ of Austen’s work, critics praised this ‘sharp and witty’ script and its ‘beautifully differentiated characters’.

This will be the Canadian Premiere of a brand-new adaptation of the classic Conan Doyle mystery - probably the most famous of all the Sherlock Holmes thrillers. The Baskerville family have long been haunted by the tale of a terrifying and spectral hound that wanders the bleak moors surrounding the ancestral home. Following the death of Sir Charles Baskerville, and the imminent arrival of the new heir, Sherlock Holmes is assigned to investigate. Does this Hound of Hell exist? Is it a supernatural entity that Haunts this cursed family? Or is there something far more sinister occurring that puts the new owner of Baskerville Hall in grave danger?

A beloved story told as a radio drama, complete with sound effects and music cues, A Christmas Carol begins with the storyteller and his friends discussing the tale they will tell. They decide on an opening line, and the storyteller begins, transforming into the mean and stingy Ebenezer Scrooge as he speaks. Throughout, the storyteller remains in the Scrooge characterization as the other actors narrate in their natural voices while assuming new voices and dialects, becoming every character in the tale.
