Lilia!

An actor wearing an overcoat, hat and holding a suitcase, superimposed over the same actor smiling in formal dress and holding an Oscar, with "Lilia!" in large green letters on the left

Relaxed performance.

Austrian stage actress Lilia Skala flees the Third Reich, escaping to New York City, where she finds herself working in a zipper factory to make ends meet. But the resilient faith that carried her across the ocean brings her back to her passions— the stage and the silver screen—eventually sharing the Oscar stage with Sydney Poitier for her portrayal of the Mother Superior in Lilies of the Field.

Her granddaughter Libby, who has yet to discover the strength within, goes on a journey of her own as she guides us through the incredible life story of her grandmother.

The Merry Wives of Windsor

Three actors in patterned dresses and towels over their shoulders seated below salon hair dryers, with their hair set in rollers and covered in pink scarves

Pursuing two respectably married women at the same time, a would-be seducer fails to anticipate that his targets will, quite literally, compare notes. Nor has he reckoned on the mischievous spirit in which the wives will use their wits and wiles to teach him the error of his ways.

Set in the 1950s, in a town not unlike Stratford, Ontario, this production brings Shakespeare’s rollicking comedy close to home – and close to our hearts.
