Tickets now on sale for our next production
All shows 8 p.m. – $35 Adults, $25 Students
Love Songs: a Diatribe, created and composed by Regina’s own Robert Ursan, co-artistic director of The Golden Apple Theatre, features Sabryn Rock (Merchant of Venice, Stratford Festival, 2014; The Three Musketeers, Stratford Festival 2014; You Can’t Take it With You, Soul Pepper Theatre, 2014) in a sweet, sarcastic, funny, moving and thought-provoking one-woman production. It is a call to someone special in the audience, a call to love and be loved from a very neurotic woman who has been rejected just often enough to place too much importance on the response of a man she only vaguely knows. It is a seduction, using some of the greatest poetry about love and loss from the last five centuries, set to music by Ursan. The production is by turns hysterically funny and sad beyond belief. This is the Canadian Premiere of one of Ursan’s newest works.
Tickets are now on sale for the next Golden Apple Theatre cabaret event: a sneak peek at a brand-new musical created by recording artist Jeffery Straker and playwright Kelley Jo Burke, based around stories from a Saskatchewan/Alberta summer camp for LGBT teens. The Golden Apple Theatre hopes to present the first staged production of the completed work.
As Jeffery explained recently to his fans…
“I’ve been working like a hound writing music for a new musical with Saskatchewan playwright Kelley Jo Burke. I’m REALLY excited about this and feel that we’re creating something really special. We’re going to be presenting some of the story and some of the show’s music…we’d love for you to come and check out what we’ve been up to.”
We’d love for you to come and check out what they’ve been up to, too. The cabaret runs 8 p.m. on March 11 at The Artesian on 13th. Tickets are $40 for adults and $25 for students, and are already available right here on our website!
