Agnes of God

Northumberland Players presents Agnes of God  Top

Dr. Martha Livingstone, a court-appointed psychiatrist, is sent to assess the sanity of a novice accused of murdering her newborn. Miriam Ruth, the Mother Superior, determinedly keeps young Agnes from the doctor, arousing Livingstone's suspicions further. Who killed the infant and who fathered the tiny victim? Livingstone's questions force all three women to re-examine the meaning of faith and love leading to a compelling climax.

From the same artistic team of Beatrix Quarrie and J.P. Baldwin that brought you Monty Python's Spamalot last season, the VOS proudly announces SHREK THE MUSICAL.

Based on the Oscar-winning DreamWorks film that started it all, SHREK THE MUSICAL brings the hilarious story of everyone's favourite ogre to life on stage.

Featuring a terrific score of 19 all-new songs, big laughs and great dancing SHREK THE MUSICAL, tells the story of a swamp-dwelling ogre who goes on a life-changing adventure to reclaim the deed to his land. Joined by a wisecracking donkey, this unlikely hero fights a fearsome dragon, rescues a feisty princess and learns that real friendship and true love aren't only found in fairy tales. SHREK THE MUSICAL is part romance, part twisted fairy tale and all irreverent fun for every age.

The Outrageous Adventures of Sheldon and Mrs. Levine
A Son's Elusive Search for His Mother's Happiness  Top

Just in Time for Mother's Day

Just when you thought your family was the most dysfunctional on the block, along come Sheldon and his mother. Enter their strange, outrageous world of an all-consuming love-hate relationship that succeeds in giving insanity a good name. Share in the angst, the aggravation, the madness and the mail of two people who although thousands of miles apart, are still too close to each other for their own good.

A thirty-one year old son runs away from his overbearing mother. The play is a series of letters between them as each searches desperately to make sense of their relationship. We are taken to places like Tibet, Bismark, North Dakota, Graceland and Yuma, Arizona. This play is based on the book Sheldon & Mrs. Levine - An Excruiating Correspondence by Sam Bobrick and Julie Styne will take place in Victoria Hall's Citizens' Forum on May 10 at 2 and 8 p.m. and May 11 at 2 p.m. Tickets are $18.00, general admission cabaret style seating.
