But at what cost? When his nationally televised trick "Buried Alive for 7 Days" goes wrong, he is forced to determine who on his team wants him dead...before it's too late. His jealous wife?

Our 2020 Season Update

April 11 2020

With the continued unsurety of how the COVID-19 pandemic will affect the arts in the coming months, Tall Tale Theatre Company has made the difficult decision to postpone all workshops planned for the year, excepting “All About Voice Acting”, as well as our summer tour of our original show Commedia Noir. Plans to premiere an original play, Angel’s Song, this winter are still underway, pending any health developments the upcoming months have in store. 

 

Tall Tale had planned to host five unique workshops this season, beginning in March and ending in December. Out of those five, only one now will still occur: “All About Voice Acting” in December. It will be taught in collaboration with special guest Julius Cho, an accomplished voice actor based in Toronto. Registration is still available through Tall Tale’s website. Anyone who purchased a spot in all other workshops for this year will be fully refunded.

 

After a very successful premiere at Rockstar Music Hall in October 2019, Tall Tale was going to take its original masked comedy Commedia Noir, written by Averey Meloche, on tour to Goderich, Kingsville, and then once again in Windsor in August. The tour is being put on hold, and is being planned instead for the summer of 2021. 

 

Tall Tale is very excited to premiere Angel’s Song, written by Brian Taylor: 

 

“Angel's Song” is an account (mostly fact based) on the Christian re-invasion (The Third Crusade) of a land retaken by Salah ad Din. The ruthless killing machine known as The Lion Heart is determined to take back Jerusalem. But before that can happen, he must take Acre. Oh, and there's an angel, two queens, a prostitute and a Monk. Something terrible will happen, if common sense does not prevail. 

            

Originally, Tall Tale planned on premiering the play in the Fall of 2020, but is now hoping to premiere it in the Winter of 2020. We are looking forward to working with Brian Taylor again, after premiering his hilarious and touching one act play ADR/VO at our 2nd Annual Building Blocks Fundraiser in March.
