We are so excited to announce a new show in our season! Curtain Call Theatre will be having a cabaret this winter. There is no theme this year, we just want a chance to show off all of the local talent performing all kinds of songs, with no restriction on genre. Auditions will be around late November with the option of in-person auditions or video auditions and you should audition on the song you would want to perform. There will be minimal rehearsals, so each person would prepare mostly on their own. We are super excited to see all the talent we know exists here in the Montgomery, New Prague, and Lonsdale area! See you at auditions!
The cost of tickets will be a free will donation.

The Odd Couple, Female Version by Neil Simon
We are so happy to being doing The Odd Couple again, and this time we are doing Female Version. Blurb from the publisher: Unger and Madison are at it again! Florence Unger and Olive Madison, that is, in Neil Simon's hilarious contemporary comic classic: the female version of The Odd Couple. Instead of the poker party that begins the original version, Ms. Madison has invited the girls over for an evening of Trivial Pursuit. The Pidgeon sisters have been replaced by the two Constanzuela brothers. But the hilarity remains the same.

Joseph and the Amazing, Technicolor Dreamcoat by Andrew Lloyd Weber
To celebrate Curtain Call Theatre's 25th Anniversary we are performing the first musical ever performed by Curtain Call, and performed for ten years of musicals: Joseph and the Amazing, Technicolor Dreamcoat! Synopsis: A Narrator opens the show by introducing Joseph, the dreamer ("Prologue”). The Narrator then draws the audience’s attention to Joseph’s father and his 12 sons ("Jacob and Sons"). Jacob has given Joseph, his youngest and favourite son, a multi-colored coat and his brothers are envious of him ("Joseph's Coat"). The brothers’ jealousy is compounded by Joseph's dreams, which suggest that he is destined to rule over them ("Joseph's Dreams"). To stop this from happening they try to kill him, before changing their minds and selling him as a slave to some passing Ishmaelites ("Poor, Poor Joseph"). To hide what they have done, Joseph’s brothers and their wives tell Jacob that his beloved son has been killed by a wild animal. As proof, they show Joseph’s coat, which they have torn to pieces and covered in goat’s blood ("One More Angel in Heaven"). When the devastated Jacob exits, the brothers and wives cheerfully celebrate Joseph’s departure (“Hoedown”).

Cabaret 2019: All I Care About is Love
Curtain Call is so excited to bring our Holiday Cabaret to its second annual performance. This year we are including a theme: Love. We are looking forward to performing pieces of many genres that talk about love. We hope to sing not only about romantic love and also about familial love and love among friends. Curtain Call is proud to give a space for the incredibly local talent to spread joy and of course, love.
