    He'd Be Your Mother's Father's Cousin

    Location: Theatre Baddeck -24 Queen Street, Baddeck NS, B0E1B0

    Date: July 5 - August 15

    ABOUT THE PLAY

    Daughter Mary-Rose has moved away to Toronto. Mom doesn’t want to waste money on expensive long distance calls so she’s recording all the news on tape to send to her. Dad can’t keep up, zany Gramma, with her Gaelic outbursts, is dealing with the out of control cat and they can’t seem to avoid all the other colourful residents of their tiny Nova Scotian community. This sweet, funny and whimsical play by Atlantic Canadian favourite, Mary-Colin Chisholm, is a celebration of story, family ties and a longing for home.

    Dance Storytelling & Dance

    Music was an integral part of life for the Gaels. There are many songs and stories about their talents and tunes written. Another important aspect of life for the Gaels was to gather together to share their music in the community. Often in the evening, the schoolhouse desks would be pushed aside, and the music would flow through the opened windows for the dancers inside and outside. Join us for this special storytelling tour and square dance.

    Dance: 6:00-9:00pm.
    Admission $25.00 per person
                      $15.00 for students 

    **If you want to attend the dance portion only admission is $10.00. Please reserve your ticket in advance, space is limited.

    The Shoplifters

    Location: Theatre Baddeck -24 Queen Street, Baddeck NS, B0E1B0

    Date: July 11 - August 18

    ABOUT THE PLAY

    Alma is a career shoplifter at the local Co-op, with a knack for getting the "five-finger discount." When she's caught in the act by Dom, an overzealous security guard, there's more revealed than the steak she has stuffed up her skirt. Along for the ride is Phyllis, Alma's hapless accomplice who doesn’t share Alma’s cool demeanour or knack for snappy comebacks. Dom is ready to lock them up and throw away the key, but his affable senior partner, Otto, intervenes with a more sympathetic view of the crime. As these four oddball characters share their wildly different takes on the situation, complex views on morality and ethics begin to emerge in this biting comedy by one of Canada's finest playwrights.
