A Message From the Artistic Director

Van Wilmott

Welcome to another season at the Mayfield Dinner Theatre! Thank you for taking the time to see what’s in store for 2018/2019. An exciting season awaits you, full of music, comedy and suspense!

As our audiences have come to expect, we open up the season with a brand new production in our very popular “Icon” series. Two Good Knights showcases two amazing Knights of the realm, Sir Tom Jones and Sir Elton John. The massive task of taking us through the lives and music of these amazing and very different artists will be handled by Mayfield favourite Kieran Martin Murphy (as Tom Jones) and newcomer Keith Spalding (as Elton John).

The Mayfield rock ‘n roll holiday season review – always a great time, always more than a little goofy! Canada 150 is old news – CANADA 151 promises to be the biggest all-Canuck party of the year! This winter, the Mayfield celebrates all things Canadian, and our amazing cast will conjure up the best artists, performances and historical moments of the last 151 years. You will walk out a prouder Canadian than when you came in, 151% guaranteed!

In February of 2019 we present one of the classic farces. Lend Me a Tenor was a huge hit on Broadway and London’s West End. It promises all the things that you’ve come to expect from a farce – mistaken identity, doors slamming, people shrieking…you will love this play!

Our big book musical this year is none other than Sister Act. This awesome show is based on the famous Whoopie Goldberg movie of the same name, and it’s a riot from beginning to end! A devilishly good score and killer comedy, provided by the funkiest Nuns you could ever imagine! Sister Act was also a big hit in New York and London and we are excited to produce this piece.

Our season ends with a bang…literally! Slueth, a Tony award winning, brilliantly written mystery, is one that we have always wanted to do and are thrilled to finally present this fabulous play on the Mayfield stage. I think it’s the best whodunit ever produced and can’t wait to share it with you! It is the perfect piece to cap off what we hope you find to be a great season of theatre.
