Kerri McKay, winner of the Udderfest 2017 “golden ticket,” her son Zac and Harbour Theatre’s Treena Decker pose after the schedule and list of plays was announced outside city hall on Friday July 21.

Udderfest ready to milk your funny bone

Fringe festival celebrates 19th year

The 19th annual Udderfest schedule was launched on Friday, August 21 at noon beside city hall.

Toast & Jam is a fun one act play written by Rob Shearer. Betty decides she needs a man not a boy like the guys she usually sees but a “man”, so why not her roommate Bill? Should be straight forward. Guess again, Bill is clueless and the other roommate, Jolie, has reservations.

In Magic Beans our Kid’s Camp participants present a twist on the traditional tale of Jack and the Beanstalk. In this improv-based play our performers, spanning ages 5-13, use theatre games, music, and collaboration to weave together this original tale. Warning: Features Light Effects

Bad Things: The Baby Shower Edition is performed and written by Treena Decker and Krista Ediger. Not your traditional Hostess; Barfa Crimson Moon returns to the Tom Rooney Playhouse to share her deliciously dark tricks and treats of the entertainment trade with udder fest audiences. Known as the “Gothic Martha Stewart”; Barfa Crimson Moon is joined by a special guest for this show. Together they delve into alternative ways of welcoming a bundle of joy into the world through baby shower, menu planning, shower decorations, and gift ideas. Warning: Dark Humour and rubber cement are used liberally in this one-act play that is not for the feint of heart.

War of Wits returns again this year! A comedy debate show where performers will debate local topics with a comedic slant. Hosted by Chris Armstrong. This show is always a crowd favourite.

The Tom Rooney’s own improv group Hook, Line and Snicker is back for another Udderfest. Get ready for some laughs and be prepared for the audience to be asked for suggestions! No two performances are the same as they switch up their games and their performers and well, because, it is improv.

Who wants to be a Rupertite is put together by the Harbour Theatre Societies own summer students! Featuring several games played by our performers. Such as Password and several more.
