Join us for an evening of middle school comedy. This year, the thespians of Island Pacific School are pleased to present two short plays —

The 42nd Annual Pie-Rating Convention

The pies are baked and the judges are ready for the greatest Canadian baking contest of the year- the 42nd Annual Pie-rating convention! But wait! When a crew of seafaring marauders crashes the convention the whole show is put in danger. Can the convention be saved?

The Secret Life of Teachers

How well do we know our teachers? 

This nature documentary turned play seeks to answer all your burning questions about your favorite teachers, such as – How old is my teacher? What do they say about me behind my back? Why won’t my teacher adopt me? and so much more. Teachers everywhere beware!

A highlight for students and their audiences every year, the Island Pacific School Mainstage theatre production is a voluntary extracurricular activity that has used both original and adapted material to mount an impressive student show each spring.

At Island Pacific School we mine the students’ creativity as much as possible, and tend to create our own scripts, which are sometimes based on popular stories, and sometimes completely original! Even productions based on pre-existing plays have a distinct Island Pacific School twist.

All students are invited to audition their talents, and the show frequently features over half the student body in some capacity. Students are involved in acting, singing, musical instrumentation, dance, set/prop construction, and tech production (such as lighting and sound) and stage crew.

A short rehearsal run takes the place of our Monday & Thursday Ultimate program during the winter when the weather starts to favour indoor activities, then rehearsals will become more frequent as the performance days near. In the spring, when the lines are (almost!) memorized, the dress rehearsal is performed for a highly enthusiastic audience of IPS staff and students. The next day, the show will open to an inevitably packed house, then close the following day. A short run, but always successful and worth the effort.

No matter what the play, everyone will be touched by the magic; students and audience alike.

All parents, grandparents, family and friends are invited! Tickets $15

See you there!
