Love and Laughter open Many Hats' Eleventh Season!

Many Hats Theatre Company is opening their 11th season with the hilarious Canadian romantic comedy Buying the Moose by Michael G. Wilmot.

Buying the Moose is the story of two couples: Rob and Betty and Rob's brother Greg, and his wife Cheryl. When Betty (Shannon French) catches Rob (Many Hats newcomer Jason Lane) in an embarrassing situation she immediately runs to Cheryl (Christa Phillips) to seek support. Little does she know that Rob is also seeking validation from Greg (Tony Collins).

What we have here is a failure to communicate and all hilarity breaks out when "he said, she said" careens off the rails!

Michael G. Wilmot is a Canadian playwright living in London, Ontario. He spent a number of years in broadcasting and as a free-lance comedy writer for Jay Leno's "Tonight Show" and Saturday Night Live's "Weekend Update" before turning his hand to writing plays. Since then his plays have been produced all across North America as well as a recent translation of his comedy 'Love Shack' into Russian for a production there!

In the Many Hats production Jane Pilkey directs and Eric Hanston and Ben Amos wear the producer's hats. Eleanor Walker stage manages.

Buying the Moose opens February 8 and runs until March 3. Performances are Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights at 8:00 Sunday matinees at 2:00.
There will TWO gala opening nights! First, on Thursday February 8 there will be our traditional opening wine and cheese reception immediately following the performance featuring wines from our official winery sponsor Play Estate Winery.

THEN on Friday February 9 there will be a reception for opening night number two featuring the most excellent craft brews of The Cannery Brewing Company, and door prizes furnished by Andre Martin of our official printing sponsor, Minuteman Press.
