"Hurtling along at the speed of light, [this] breathtaking farce is a near faultless piece of theatrical invention." — Guardian

Bernard is planning a romantic weekend with his mistress while his wife is away and has arranged for a cook to prepare gourmet delights. He has also invited his best friend, Robert, along to provide the alibi.

It's foolproof; what could possibly go wrong?

Well.... suppose Robert turns up not realizing quite why he has been invited. Suppose Robert and Jacqueline are secret lovers, and consequently determined that Jacqueline will not leave for the weekend. Suppose the cook has to pretend to be the mistress and the mistress is unable to cook. Suppose everyone's alibi gets confused with everyone else's.

An evening of hilarious confusion, hidden identities, and outrageous infidelities are exposed in Marc Camoletti's sequel to Boeing-Boeing!

Gareth is pleased to be back on stage with MFT after appearing pre-COVID in Larry Shue's The Foreigner, Jim Brochu's Cookin' with Gus and a Georges Feydeau show whose name he can't remember.

Jodie is so very excited to be out of the house and performing in Mini Fridge Theatre Company's production of Don't Dress for Dinner by Marc Camoletti.

Jodie is a University of Saskatchewan Hangar (drama) Building alumna. She also loves teaching and performing with Desert Beats Belly Dance as well as Durga Dance troupes.

During the weekdays, Jodie works with primary age children at wâhkôhtowin School, so getting to create theatre with adults is a huge treat!

Enjoy the show!

It is so good to be back!

Sean is delighted to be appearing in MFT's first show since last October. You may remember him from roles such as: Cameron in Norm Foster's The Foursome, Froggy in the Larry Shue's The Foreigner, or "The Cop" in too many shows to mention.

Tonight, he will embody the true meaning of sophistication in 90s France with his portrayal of Robert in Don't Dress for Dinner.

Enjoy the show and stay safe everybody!

Queen of Bingo Event Pic

“Bingo is about winning and THE QUEEN OF BINGO is a jackpot of a show” — Bingo Bugle

Where can two sisters on the other side of fifty, who want to add a little zest, fun and excitement to their lives, find it? Bingo!

On any Bingo night at St. Joseph’s, you can find Father Mac, Lonnie and Cindy Conklin, Marge Meranski, Coach Anderson, and the many offbeat, colourful regulars we meet through the eyes of Sis and Babe. They dish the dirt, giggle like school girls and share old memories.

Sis and Babe are sisters and best friends. They’ve been coming to play Bingo together for years because they love it. Sis is a good loser who just loves to play. Babe is a player who has always got to win. Sis is naturally fit and trim. Babe is naturally overweight and always fighting the battle of the bulge. Sis is content in her widowhood. Babe is still looking for love. They compliment each other in ways only sisters can and they drive each other crazy in that same sisterly fashion.

On this particular night, Babe and Sis share something new as they each confess a secret and find a special kind of redemption.
