The Noteworthy Life of Howard Barnes

By Michael Kooman & Chrisopher Dimond

Howard Barnes is a perfectly average man in his early thirties, until the day he awakens to discover that his life has become a musical. Desperate to escape from the show, Howard embarks on a fantastical quest through the realm of musical theatre.

Equal parts satire, romantic comedy, and love letter to the American musical, The Noteworthy Life of Howard Barnes is intended for people who love musical theatre, and their spouses who hate it!

Dani Girl

Punch Up!

By Kat Sandler

Duncan has always been a pretty boring guy, until he stumbles upon Brenda, a sad young woman who’s about to end her life. Convinced he’s fallen in love, Duncan strikes up a desperate deal: if he can get her to laugh, she'll give life another shot, but if she doesn’t even giggle, he'll help her go through with her plan. There’s just one catch: Duncan isn’t funny. At all. So he borrows Pat, his second-favourite comedian, to help him come up with the perfect routine. A comedy of three misfits, Punch Up! navigates a hostage situation and a life-or-death comedy lesson to show just how far we’ll go for a laugh.

Never Swim Alone

By Daniel MacIvor

We face a choice - compassion or competition? Frank and Bill, two egotistical men are caught in a constant one-upmanship for seemingly no reason. This dramatic-comedy is an exploration of what happens when the desire to be first outweighs our compassion for others.

Why is Cancer? When Dani, a spunky, imaginative nine year old girl, is diagnosed with leukemia, she will stop at nothing to answer this question. Armed with her teddy bear, imaginary friend, and movie-obsessed hospital roommate, Dani embarks on a magical journey to reclaim what is rightfully hers – her hair. This hilarious and heartbreaking musical is a story of make-believing and believing, which might not be that different after all.
