The Great Gatsby follows Nick Carraway as he comes to New York City in the spring of 1922, an era of loosening morals, glittering jazz and bootleg kings. Chasing his own American Dream, Nick lands next door to a mysterious party-giving millionaire, Jay Gatsby and across the bay from his cousin, Daisy and her philandering, blue-blooded husband. As Nick bears witness, he pens a tale of impossible love, incorruptible dreams and high-octane tragedy, and holds a mirror to our own modern times.

“Drinking Habits”, by Tom Smith.
Accusations, mistaken identities, and romances run wild in this traditional, laugh-out-loud farce. Two nuns at the Sisters of Perpetual Sewing have been secretly making wine to keep the convent’s doors open, but Paul and Sally, reporters and former fiancees, are hot on their trail. They go undercover as a nun and priest, but their presence, combined with the addition of a new nun, spurs paranoia throughout the convent that spies have been sent from Rome to shut them down. Wine and secrets are inevitably spilled as everyone tries to preserve the convent and reconnect with lost loves.
Celebrating TEN YEARS of outstanding theatre!!
July 6th – July 29th, 2017
The Norwegians July 6th – July 29th, 2017 Ever wonder what it would look like if Thelma and Louise got lost in Fargo? This is it. The Norwegians is a quirky black comedy about heartbreak and what you can do about it, if you have the number of a really nice Norwegian gangster. Set in the middle of winter in Minnesota, the Scorpio is definitely compatible with the Leo, but the Italian may not mix so well with the girl from Kentucky. Add in a little baseball and too much wine, and someone might just get killed.
The Norwegians by award winning playwright C. Denby Swenson, opens July 6 and runs until July 29. Performances are Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 8:00PM with a Sunday Matinee at 2:00PM. All performances are on the Cannery Stage in the Cannery Trade Centre, 1475 Fairview Road, Penticton.
We’re having TWO gala opening nights! First, on July 6 there will be our traditional opening featuring wines of our official winery sponsor Play Estate Winery along with tasty treats from The Nest and Nectar.
THEN on Friday July 7 there will be a reception immediately following the performance in The Nest and Nectar featuring the most excellent craft brews of The Cannery Brewing Company, scintillating finger snacks from The Nest and Nectar and as as added feature there will be door prizes furnished by Andre Martin of our official print sponsor, Minuteman Press.
The Nest and Nectar (right next door!) will be open Tuesday through Sunday with full dinner service on show nights when they will also be staying open late for a nosh or a cocktail after the show!! And they also have a dynamite Sunday Brunch which has proven extremely popular! May we suggest you phone 250-493-7275 for a reservation to avoid disappointment? Check out their menu and hours of service here www.nestandnectar.ca

It’s a time of passion and confusion. Virtue is barely holding down its petticoats. People are bursting their corsets with unbridled desire. It’s 1885, and the typewriter and the suffrage movement are sending things topsy-turvy. In the midst of it all, five ambitious New Women and one Newish Man struggle to find their way. Miss Mary Barfoot runs a school for secretaries with her young lover, Miss Rhoda Nunn. But when the Misses Madden – spinsters Virginia and Alice and beautiful young Monica – arrive, along with the attractive Dr. Everard Barfoot, things can never be the same.
Don’t miss the hilarious sequel to Boeing Boeing, “DON”T DRESS FOR DINNER” which runs in Osoyoos Jan 27-28 and in Oliver February 3-4.
This boulevard comedy was a smash hit in Paris, where it played for over two years, and in London, where it ran for six years at the Apollo and Duchess Theatres. It has since played in theatres all over the USA and the English speaking world
Bernard is planning a romantic weekend with his chic Parisian mistress in his charming converted French farmhouse, whilst his wife, Jacqueline, is away. He has arranged for a cordon bleu cook to prepare gourmet delights, and has invited his best friend, Robert, along too to provide the alibi.
It’s foolproof; what could possibly go wrong? Well…. suppose Robert turns up not realizing quite why he has been invited. Suppose Robert and Jacqueline are secret lovers, and consequently determined that Jacqueline will NOT leave for the weekend. Suppose the cook has to pretend to be the mistress and the mistress is unable to cook. Suppose everyone’s alibi gets confused with everyone else’s.
Finally we round out the season with “SINCE YOU LEFT US” by Canada’s own Susinn McFarlen. This will also be SOAP’s entry into the 2017 OZone Festival. Shows will be April 28 & 29 in Osoyoos and May 5 & 6 in Oliver.
Tickets are $25 and $15 for students BUT we are also offering a discounted season pass for our theatre loving patrons.
Season tickets are $67.50 and $39 for students for all the shows!!
