Theatre Sheridan 2017/18 Season Productions:

Trap Door – a musical thriller about disappearances, some that we notice, some that we don’t.

1919, Toronto the Good, where booze cans and brothels are hidden in places any God-fearing Methodist can find them: the Music Halls. Enter Teddy, a young woman in search of her sister, who went missing soon after moving to the city. Like her sister before her, she gets work at The Grand Opera and the owner is none other than the infamous real-life impresario Ambrose Small, who sells his theatre chain and vanishes from sight a week after she arrives, never to be heard from again. Where he went, perhaps only Teddy can say. But, then, where is she? Was she ever even there? Trap Door is a haunting true-crime story about a young woman’s introduction to the decadence and brutality of city life in the early 20th century.

Performances will take place at Macdonald-Heaslip Hall from November 28 to December 10, 2017. New dates are January 9 to 14, 2018.

Into the Woods – a ground-breaking musical that explores what the Brothers Grimm didn’t have the courage to tell us….

Revealed in the first act of this remarkable musical is an intricately woven tale of no less than five classic Fairy Tale characters, all in search of their “happily ever after” ending. But what happens after everyone’s wishes are granted?

Performances will take place from November 30 to December 10, 2017 at the Studio Theatre. New dates are January 6 to 14, 2017.

The Cradle will Rock

Steeltown, USA, 1937. In the middle of the great depression, Marc Blitzstein writes he’s blistering attack on the wealth and power of a few held over the working class poor.

The industrialist Mr. Mister owns the town and the people in it, until union leader Larry Foreman exposes the creed and corruption that lies just beneath the grit and grim. First banned for public performance, Biltzstein’s revelatory operatic tale is as relevant today as it was 80 years ago.

Performances will take place at the Studio Theatre from February 15 to 25, 2018.

Crazy for You

An exhilarating celebration to the beloved, optimistic musicals of the 1930’s.

A world of showgirls and cowboys, in which a city boy and a country girl reconcile their differences, fall in love, and save a theatre, the old-fashion way. All this and more… featuring the fabulous score from the Gershwin brothers’ songbook.

Performances will take place at Macdonald Heaslip Hall from April 10 to 22, 2018.

Music and Lyrics by George Gershwin and Ira Gershwin

If/Then

Elizabeth returns to New York City to start her life over.

In a city of infinite possibilities, her carefully designed plans collide with the whims of fate tossing her into two parallel paths, one that we live, and one that we wish we would have led. A deeply moving portrait of a modern women is given in this fascinating, ambitious and original new musical.

Performances will take place at the Studio Theatre from April 12 to 22, 2018

Book and Lyrics by Brian Yorkey
