Doris & Ivy in the Home

Retired prison guard Doris Mooney has just moved into Paradise Village, a retirement home in Canmore, Alberta. She quickly befriends Ivy Hoffbauer, a former champion skier who’s taken aback by Doris’ cheerful brashness.

Rounding out the trio is dapper Arthur Beech who has designs on Ivy.

Love, gossip, and sex behind the compost heap, this is Norm Foster at his hilarious best!

What is Theatre for Young Audiences?

We believe theatre is a powerful tool. It dramatizes and contextualizes the world. It invites us to walk in other’s shoes; see the world through their eyes.

All of our Theatre for Young Audiences (TYA) shows are grounded in the Ontario curriculum; they teach, through theatre.

Bonus: we hire educators to create study packages, so your classroom can get the most out of the experience.

Watch theatre on demand.
