Commedia Meets Film Noir in our New Show... Commedia Noir!
Tall Tale Theatre is proud to announce a brand new, original production coming this fall! We have partnered with Gina Lori Riley Dance Enterprises to create a new physical comedy performance based on the classic technique of "Commedia dell'Arte" combined with the style of film noir.
Follow an unmemorable paperboy, Harley, as his naive pursuit of love plunges him into an underground world of rum running, murder, deception and finger guns.
Will our hero succeed in winning over his femme fatale? Or will they fall prey to the claws of an unforgiving Noir world?

Night Terrors! Come and Listen... If You Dare!
Tall Tale Theatre is proud to announce that we will be creating original radio plays in the form of podcasts! The first branch on our podcast tree will be a remount of "Night Terrors". This thriller/horror anthology series will bring you stories filled with twists and terrors, brought to you by the ‘Humble Host’ (the quintessential horror anthology host).
Night Terrors will be coming soon, so be sure to look out for all update
This is an open call to all local actors, writers, graphic designers, directors, and composers who may be interested in participating in this project! All levels of experience are welcome!
The Fringe Update
Posted May 25th 2019
Unfortunately, “For the Love of Late Night, written by Michael J. Krym, had to be cancelled one day before our opening night due to sudden unforeseen circumstances. However, Tall Tale believes it is an excellent play that we are all very proud of, and so plans are in action to re-re-mount the show in the future, most likely next year.
We want to thank specifically Shannon Pitre and Conor Murphy for all of their contributions and positive energy over the month of May. They have beyond proven to be two of the most professional emerging artists Tall Tale has had the privilege of working with to date, and we hope to work with each of them again in the future.
We would like to thank each of our sponsors for their support of our work: Three Monkeys with a Typewriter, Eddy’s Mediterranean Bistro, Antonino’s Original Pizza, and Adept Driver Academy. Sponsorships have been refunded, or transferred to future projects according to the wish of each sponsor. As well, thank you to those who pre-purchased tickets online. Those ticket purchases should by now be refunded.
Tall Tale is not slowed by this small bump in the road, as we have a few exciting things already on the horizon for 2019. Most immediately, Tall Tale will be rejuvenating the classic “radio play” by starting podcast plays! Already we have “Night Terrors”, a series of one-act-horror plays all connected by a mysterious figure named the “Humble Host”. THIS IS AN OPEN CALL for submissions of voice acting talent, as well as one act plays to be created for the podcast. All genres are welcome.
In the fall, we have an original Commedia D’ell Arte show coming, written and directed by Averey Meloche, and being produced by Eric Branget through a generous grant from the Windsor Arts, Culture, and Heritage Fund. The show will bring the timeless stock characters into the contrasted and dangerous world of film noir. Auditions will be held in August.
Finally, thank you to all the local theatre companies who reached out in support of us through this process. It truly speaks to the spirit of Windsor artists.
