- The Guild Hall in Porter Creek, YT, Canada
by David Mamet
Directed by Sarah Rodgers
Here The Guild heads into something truly meaty and truly now. A show that doesn’t flinch, Oleanna lays witness to the power struggle between a university professor and one of his female students. This will be a fantastic opportunity to watch two actors shine around the incredible dialogue that Mamet is famous for and ultimately leave the audience stunned and breathless.

At the age of 36, Franz Kafka was still living at home, a petty bureaucrat, a failed artist, a timid Jewish son. Ruling and ruining his life was his overbearing father, Hermann. What to do? In this case, Kafka wrote a 50-page letter to his father in which he reveals deep connections between his life and his fiction. As he confesses in the letter, “All my writing was about you.” Adapted from this monumental (and undelivered) letter, Kafka and Son is a blistering, often hilarious, dissection of domestic authority and a revelatory visit with one of the architects of the modern psyche.
Local soloists and ensembles & The Whitehorse Community Orchestra
The Yukon Registered Music Teachers Association (YRMTA) will co-present a variety of classical soloists and ensembles followed by a reunion of the Whitehorse Community Orchestra for a feature performance of Bizet’s Carmen Suites nos.1 & 2. After presenting Mussorgsky’s Pictures At An Exhibition last season, conductor Henry Klassen is excited to perform another important work for our Whitehorse audience. These performances will showcase many of the finest classical musicians in the Yukon and is not to be missed!

Contains mature content. Come experience all the anticipation, excitement, and thrill of a first encounter in Blind Date—a fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants fusion of clown, improvisation, theatre, and social experiment. In this spectacular show we meet Mimi, a Parisian temptress, who is stood up by her date. Always the optimist, Mimi selects one fortunate new date from the audience (a different one every night!) to take his place. Heartwarming hilarity ensues as Mimi and her man embark on a spontaneous 90-minute adventure. A brilliant companion piece to Museum of Broken Relationships and War In Peace in the Public Art Gallery.
