Proving that a great show is always in fashion, "Love, Loss, and What I Wore" has become an international hit. With its compulsively entertaining subject matter, this intimate collection of stories by Nora and Delia Ephron celebrated an accomplished two-and-a-half year run in New York’s Westside Theatre. "Love, Loss, and What I Wore" is based on the best-seller by Ilene Beckerman as well as the recollections of the Ephrons’ friends. The show uses clothing and accessories and the memories they trigger to tell funny and often poignant stories that all women can relate to, creating one of the most enduring theatergoing experiences domestically and overseas.


DP Goes to Sherbrooke!

In beautiful, historic Sherbrooke Village this July 22nd to 24th, Dartmouth Players actors will perform a summer pantomime written by local journalist and playwright, Ryan Van Horne. Paul Bunion and the Salmon Forest uses music and laughter to entertain, and perhaps inform, spectators of all ages.
 
Ticket information will be posted on the Sherbrooke Village website, and on the Dartmouth Players site when available.
 
Paul Bunion arrives in Sherbrooke from an island off the coast of Maine called Big Toe. He's carrying nothing but an axe over his shoulder as he walks down Main Street with a sly eye, sizing up his chance to get rich quick. Bunion plans to exploit Sherbrooke’s wealth of resources - gold, salmon and timber - but the locals have learned from the Mi’kmaw and their hero, Glooscap, that greed causes only problems. Bunion has brought a different mentality, along with his crew of Bunion's Privateers, and it leads to a showdown in Sherbrooke.
 
Co-directed and co-produced by Ryan Van Horne and Mike Durling.

The Rocky Horror Show
Book, music and lyrics by Richard O’Brien
Directed by Jolene Pattison
October 20th - November 5, 2016

Winner - 1973 Evening Standard Award for Best Musical

Join Frank N. Furter and the Transylvanians in welcoming newly engaged Brad and Janet to their remote castle. The young couple will experience shock, horror, and awesome songs along the way. Will they get out alive? Will they stay engaged? Will they have too much fun? First produced in 1973, The Rocky Horror Show was the inspiration for the cult classic Rocky Horror Picture Show in 1975. It is both a tribute to, and parody of, B movies – the science fiction and horror movies that were staples to baby boomers everywhere. The play has cross-dressing aliens, a transvestite mad scientist, ray guns, and a Frankenstein monster – Rocky himself!
