Complete Schedule of Theatrical Performances

11:00am – Children’s Theatre – Th’owxiya: the Hungry Feast Dish by Joseph DandurandAxis Theatre

Six storytellers spin a tale from the Kwantlen First Nations Village of Squa’lets, about Th’owxiya: the Hungry Feast Dish. The mouth of Th’owxiya holds the most wonderful foods from around the world. But if you steal from her, you will pay a terrible price, for she has developed a taste for children! When Th’owxiya catches a hungry mouse stealing a piece of cheese from her mouth she is furious. To appease the goddess, Kw’at’el (the mouse) must find two young spirits as an offering before the second moon rises or she will eat Kw’at’el’s whole family! With the help of two Spa:th (bears), Sqeweqs (raven) and Sasq’ets (sasquatch), Kw’at’el sets forth on a journey for knowledge and forgiveness. Th’owxiya: The Hungry Feast Dish has shades of the Hansel and Gretel fairytale and the First Nations story The Wild Woman of the Woods, told through mask and music. A fantastic theatrical marvel for kids of all ages!

2:00pm – Youth Theatre – Confessions of A Grocery Store ClerkCapricorn Theatre Productions

A musical comedy that follows the lives of five grocery store employees. A true to life journey through the lives and experiences of the these five women. Some mature subject matter.
These clerks are:
The Student: Avery, full time student who has worked part time at the store for the last four years. She is very smart and a little dorky but overall very caring and takes it upon herself to make Emma feel included. She has just graduated with her degree and has been accepted to McGill. However, she is facing a dilemma as she is afraid to move away and take the next step in her life
The Vet: Beverly has been working at the store for 30 years and knows the place inside out. She is the maternal figure out of the group and offers her home once a month for the cashiers to get together and hang out. However, she often wonders where she would have ended up if she had chosen to leave the store.
The Rookie: Emma. High school student getting her first job for the summer, doesn’t take her work very seriously and is only planning on being there until school picks back up. Yet through the duration of the story she learns that there is more to the store than just work. Coming from a broken home life, she doesnt have a place of belonging and is weary of the new group of ladies. Sometimes a bit of a brat, she is really just looking for a family.
The Single Mom: Karen. A single mom who works full time while her two young children are in primary school. She is particularly cynical and puts up with no bullshit. During the show she is promoted to manager. Despite her sarcasm and dark sense of humor, she is caring and will not hesitate to stand up for her friends and family.
The Perky One: Gwen has been working at the store for three years now. She loves people, loves her job, loves making friends, loves the idea of love, but she’s single and ready to mingle. Despite always being happy and optimistic, she has a secret dark side that emerges only when she is backed into a corner. She also has a difficult love life. She will always take the opportunity to tell a funny joke.
