SAMC’s 2013-2014 theatre season starts in October with Shaw’s sunny satire, You Never Can Tell.

SAMC Theatre unveils a season of love and laughter

Opening production will be George Bernard Shaw's You Never Can Tell

It’s a season of love and laughter onstage at Trinity Western University’s School of the Arts, Media + Culture (SAMC).  From the popular student festival showcasing brand new work, to theatre classics from Shakespeare and Shaw, there is something to entertain everyone.

The season opens with George Bernard Shaw’s You Never Can Tell, running Oct. 22 to Nov. 2.

Directed by Lloyd Arnett, this classic satire is set in Victorian England where a far-from-traditional family turns a quiet seaside resort topsy-turvy.

As sparks fly between the eldest daughter and her womanizing dentist, the family’s long-lost father appears with some plans of his own.  It wouldn’t be a family vacation without a few fireworks.

TWU 2012 alumna Becky MacDormand returns to direct Beth Henley’s sassy Pulitzer Prize winner, Crimes of the Heart. Playing Nov. 19 to 30, the show is quirky Southern comedy at its best.

In this irreverent ride through a small town, three very different sisters are reunited by a surprising turn of events.

Their poignant story offers plenty of laughter for anyone who’s ever loved and lost  … or had a family.

SAMC’s popular student-run festival, New Generations, kicks off the New Year with an explosion of short plays.  A fast and funny showcase featuring the next generation of playwrights and directors, this is a week-long smorgasbord of inspiring theatrical talent.

Tickets are known to sell out, so mark your calendars for Jan. 28 to Feb. 1.

One of Shakespeare’s most beloved romantic comedies, Much Ado About Nothing, promises a spectacular grand finale for the season. Angela Konrad directs this sizzling battle of the sexes, running March 11 to 22.   SAMC’s offers special opportunities for high school groups to attend. Contact theatre@twu.ca for more details.
