LIVE THEATRE

LARRY is a complex, fearless and very funny portrait of a small-town Canadian dude on a path of self-discovery. He wants to prove that he’s worthy of a good woman, that he can quit drinkin’ and even take up “medertation”.

Far deeper than it first appears, LARRY’s journey into his own psyche uncovers more than he expected…

Comedy artist Candice Roberts uses her alter ego Larry to explore her experiences growing up as a female in rural B.C. in the 1980s. Culled from the male archetypes that surrounded her during her upbringing, Larry helps her use laughter to investigate gender stereotypes, being queer and aging as a woman in today’s society.

Like Ginger Rogers meets Mr. Bean on the Muppet show, Ideas Bobert dances with the hilarious absurd

THE CANDY BONES SHOW

Into the psyche of an Awkward Introvert- An autobiographical Sketch Comedy. 

Like a modern-day Carol Burnett, Candice Roberts plays the hilarious, heartbreaking, and often embarrassing characters that make up her own psyche. The Candy Bones Show is an autobiographical sketch comedy where Candy’s neurosis, family support, and fears (to name a few) take on their own identities and vignettes in her struggle to find love and acceptance. The Candy Bones Show weaves heartfelt storytelling with dance, shadow puppetry, and comedy to joyously reflect the trials and tribulations of being human.


The Myrtle Sisters in OUT OF TIME

The Myrtle Sisters have just arrived from 1921 via a time machine! They were traveling about, collecting, learning and sharing historical songs and dance hits from the 20’s, 30s and 40s when something went wrong! Can the time machine be fixed?

Since they’ve never been this far in the future, the sisters decide to perform their numbers and collect their data. In an artistic exchange with the audience of the millennium they trade dance crazes such as the Charleston and the Shim-sham for ones from the current times.

In a story of independence and togetherness, the sisters learn that they don’t always have to agree, but that they are stronger when they support each other. Will the Myrtle Sister’s ever learn to get along? Can the audience help them harmonize once again and get back to 1919?
