In this modern masterwork -- critically praised as a unique mix of Oscar Wilde and Bertolt Brecht -- the great Irish writer George Bernard Shaw pits a military industrialist against his crusading daughter. She's a Salvation Army major; he's an arms manufacturer and whiskey distiller -- on certain issues, they could not disagree more. But when he begins donating money to her organization, matters come to a head as the characters grapple with questions of business, faith, family and philanthropy. After 16 years, A.C.T. brings Shaw back to the stage with this co-production with Theatre Calgary, one of A.C.T.'s favorite Canadian collaborators, featuring an international cast of Canadian and American actors.

Fast paced clever lyrics of Sondheim can't be missed! Energetic, enthusiastic, talented actors/ singers pour their hearts out in this funny, slapstick comedy. Great stage sets, goofy, colorful, over the top costumes make it all the more enjoyable to see this in the outdoor theater. Personally found Trente Morante to be a very talented singer and great in his role. Go see it!
This show includes sexual humor and situations, but nothing more graphic than is commonly seen on prime-time television.
This is an outdoor venue. Please be prepared for the weather.
There are bathrooms and snack bars inside the amphitheater. Coffee, hot chocolate, soft drinks, candy, popcorn and cookies are available for purchase.
