Plays are being performed at the North Peace Cultural Centre, and this year’s lineup includes:

The Brothers Grimm Spectaculathon - May 23, 7:30 p.m.

Presented by North Peace Secondary School

The fairy tales of the Brothers Grimm are turned on their heads in this fast paced story, as two narrators and several actors try to combine all 209 stories in a wild free form comedy with lots of audience participation.

Between the Sheets - May 24, 7:30 p.m.

Presented by Stage North

A gripping and raw confrontation between two women, one fighting to protect her family, the other fighting for the family she always wanted. Adult content. 16+ recommended

Annapurna - May 25, 7:30 p.m.

Presented by Bridge to Broadway

Emma unexpectedly descends upon Ulysses, a washed up poet/ cowboy. What follows is a gripping story of loss and love. This dramatic comedy unveils a murky past, and leaves us wondering what could have been. This play contains some nudity and coarse language. 16+ recommended

Productions this year are being adjudicated by Sarah Rogers. The winner of Best Production will go on to Mainstage.
