Alumnae Theatre Company

Contributed by Carina Cojeen

The 97-year-old Alumnae Theatre Company, located in an old firehall building at Adelaide and Berkeley, has two more offerings in its 2014-2015 season.
The 27th annual New Ideas Festival, running from March 11-29, presents 15 new short plays, averaging 30 minutes in length over the three-week run.
But even more exciting is the seaon’s final Mainstage presentation, I Am Marguerite, running from April 10-22. Written by local playwright Shirley Barrie, he title character is Marguerite de Roberval, a young French noblewoman, who in 1542 was abandoned on a desolate gulf island off of the northern coast of what is now Newfoundland as punishment for getting pregnant. Over the course of two years, Marguerite managed to survive, outliving the two others who were abandoned with her. With an exciting design team, once again the Alumnae Theatre promises a fascinating night of theatre.
Tickets and information are available online at www.alumnaetheatre.com.
