Our stint remounting Sapientia at Centaur Theatre's Wildside Festival was a whirlwind.

Little known fact, it premiered as a five minute cabaret act in our Grand Guingol and Vaudeville Fundraiser three years ago. Theirs is another fine example of object theatre, and they have been tourin...
We are halfway through the run of our Show Sapientia, and we are pleased to announce that we have been sold out (save for one matinee), and the rest of the run is almost sold out as well!
Plus we've been receiving wonderful feedback from the critics!
