2000-2009

We were settling into the Arts Centre, improving our lighting and sound systems. Our focus was full length productions instead of dinner theatres, comedy cabarets and Christmas kids' shows.

Full Length Play

An Act Of The Imagination

by Bernard Slade

This was a well written suspenseful thriller which allowed us to explore some new and challenging special effects.

November/December

Full Length Play

Blithe Spirit

by Noel Coward

Blithe Spirit is a classic which we truly enjoyed bringing back to life. Joke intended.

2001

March/April

One Act Play/

ADFA Festival

Albert's Bridge

by Tom Stoppard

This was written as a radio play, which we adapted for the stage. The Provincials were held in Medicine Hat and we came home with several major awards.

Full Length Play

On The Razzle

by Tom Stoppard

We chose to re-mount one of our favourite large cast romps to help us celebrate our 20th Anniversary. 

December

Full Length Play

The Hollow

by Agatha Christie

This was another re-mount of an old favourite whodunnit.

2002

June

Full Length Play

The Foursome

by Norm Foster

This play was memorable for a number of reasons. It's a great story about old pals reuniting. We staged it in the round, where tee-shots were swung inches away from audience faces. We can't hear the song December '63 without thinking of the heartwarming chorus line dance at the finale.

Full Length Play

Incorruptible

by Michael Hollinger

This play was built on the premise that religious artifacts are not only part of faith but also finances. The descent and ascent of the fate of this monastery illustrates the indomitable spirit of humanity.

December

Full Length Play

Red Herring

by Michael Hollinger

This was an ingenious script involving a number of seemingly unrelated people during the cold war. The multiple set staging made it even more interesting.

2004

One Act Play/

ADFA Festival

Meat Stu

by Brian Bailey, Colleen Bailey, Steven Dodwell & Nigel Miller

This was Nigel's first kick at playwrighting, and he allowed Brian, Colleen and Steven to help flesh out the work. Colleen got the Outstanding Female Actor and the play won Outstanding Production at Provincials.

August

Full Length Play

Lettice & Loveage

by Peter Shaffer

This show featured delicious language and a creative interpretation of history.

December

Full Length Play

Empty Plate at the Café Grand Boeuf

by Michael Hollinger

Money can buy the world's best restaurant and the finest food, but can it buy happiness? 

2005

May

Full Length Play

The Mousetrap

Agatha Christie

This was a re-mount of one of our favourite Christie plays. 

August

Full Length Play

Proposals

Neil Simon

There were a few graduated High School Drama Club kids kicking around town for the summer, so we thought we would engage them and entertain our audience in a rare example of summer stock theatre. 

November

Full Length Play

Steel Magnolias

Steel Magnolias was a stage play before it was adapted for film a few years later. It is a moving story of friendships, loss and endurance.

2006

June

As Peak's 25th Anniversary celebration, we decided that one play was not enough. We would present two full length plays on alternating nights over two weeks. 

Over the River and Through the Woods was a funny, gentle look at a family in evolution, while A Drawer Boy was somewhat more angst driven.

Full Length Play

Over The River And Through The Woods

by Joe DePietro

Full Length Play

The Drawer Boy

by Michael Healey

August

Full Length Play

The Importance Of Being Earnest

by Oscar Wilde

After the fun we had with Proposals the previous summer, we decided to re-mount this favourite classic comedy of manners. 

We assembled another young cast, hung a swing from the roof trusses and staged it in the round.

December

Full Length Play

Chapter Two

by Neil Simon

This was a charming humorous and sensitive story, crafted with Neil Simon's legendary care. 

2007

June

Full Length Play

Self Help

by Norm Foster

This was Foster's tale about two advice experts sadly in need of advice.

August

Full Length Play

The Last Resort

While Peaksters have regularly involved themselves in singing, this was in fact, our first true musical comedy. We had a whole lot of fun with the singing, dance and the crazy story.

by Norm Foster

December

Full Length Play

The Penultimate Problem of Sherlock Holmes

by John Nassivera

This was an ambitious, challenging script about the notorious Sherlock Holmes.

2008

June

Full Length Play

Polish Joke

by David Ives

This was a complex play, which had at its heart the hopes and challenges of marginalized nationalities. Because there were so many different scenes and locations, we opted to use some multi-media techniques to stage it.

November

Full Length Play

Moon Over Buffalo

by Ken Ludwig

This was our first experience with Ken Ludwig, although we had been considering his scripts for years. This was a theatre-folk farce, and very fun to work on.

2009

May

Full Length Play

Drinking Alone

by Norm Foster

This was another Foster, which means humour, sensitivity and sincerity.

August

Full Length Play

Incorruptible

by Michael Hollinger

We had long wanted to return to the Edmonton International Fringe Festival and after several tries, secured ourselves a berth in their lottery.

We chose to remount this play because it is quirky and a little unsavoury, just like the Festival. 

We had to flog the show to get decent houses, but got a 4 1/2 out of 5 stars in the Journal, which helped make the show even more successful.

December

Full Length Play

Ethan Claymore

by Norm Foster

This sweet script appealed to us immediately, and we enjoyed producing it as our Christmas offering.
