God Is a Scottish Drag Queen

The critically acclaimed fringe sensation returns to Montreal after sold-out runs in Victoria, Vancouver, and Edmonton. Based on the character created by comedian Mike Delamont and 2012 Dora Award winning writer Jacob Richmond (Ride The Cyclone) God is a deity like you have never seen before. Sporting a 80's floral power suit, god skewers everything from Justin Bieber to the Pope! One of the top attended shows of the 2012 Montreal Fringe Festival.

“Laugh out loud funny” Concordia Link,
“The best show I have seen at the fringe... A must see!” Bloody Underrated,
“Hilarious... Divinely and wickedly funny” Montreal Gazette.

Tickets are 17$, or 42$ for all three Delamont shows.

Nov. 15th @ 20h, Nov. 16th & 17th at 21h
From award winning comedian Mike Delamont comes an all new hour long tour de force with everyones favorite deity. You dont have to have seen the first chapter to enjoy watching God take the stage to rage and complain about all things human and divine. In this chapter God will skewer everything from the Mormans and Scientologists to Noah and Moses. After it's sold out premiere run on the west coast, CVV Magazine has said that this show is “even better than the original... there is a reason that this show sold out in mere minutes.”

Tickets are 17$, or 42$ for all three Delamont shows.

Student Gala!

MainLine Theatre and The Factory Line collective join forces for a third year to present the annual Gala for student drama.

This non profit event wishes to give aspiring student playwrights, directors and actors a professional setting from which they will be able to springboard into the domain. The organizations wish to give students the opportunity to produce a short play outside of school, giving them that first "official production" that is often so hard to get in the industry.

The event will take place on February 14th, 15th, and 16th, 2013, at MainLine Theatre, giving each production 3 nights of stage appearance. Rehearsal time as well as professional tech-support will be provided to the final 4 productions. The deadline for submissions is November 25th, 2012.

Les deux organisations ont comme but de donner à ces étudiants l'opportunité de produire une pièce courte à l'extérieur de leur milieu scolaire, leur donnant la chance de créer leur première production qui est parfois si difficile à obtenir dans le milieu professionnel.

Cet événement se tiendra le 14, 15, et 16 février 2013 au Théâtre MainLine, donnant à chaque production 3 représentations. Du temps de répétition et un support technique professionnel sera disponible pour les 4 productions finalistes. La date limite de soumission est le 25 Novembre 2012.
