UNKNOWN SOLDIER
“If you had free reign over classified networks … and you saw incredible things, awful things … what would you do?”
A soldier’s exposure of military actions and government corruption fuel a personal drama about integrity, identity, and information in a changing world. And Lady Gaga.
A fictionalized drama, Unknown Soldier is inspired by the actions of Chelsea (formerly Bradley) Manning, a US Army Private who leaked classified documents to Wikileaks and was recently sentenced to 35 years in prison.

EL JINETE – A MARIACHI OPERA

Featuring Mariachi Los Dorados, El Jinete is a tale of love, vengeance and the supernatural, told through classics of the Mariachi repertoire. Inspired by the Golden Era of Mexican cinema, the show uses multi-layered projections to make it a black and white film come to life. The Rider is a cursed mariachi with a bullet wound in his heart; like a Mexican Orpheus, he crosses the border into El Norte to avenge the kidnapping of his bride. On the other side of the Rio Grande, he finds a strange and modern world, from which he may never return….

Guild Festival Theatre proudly presents The Importance of Being Earnestby Oscar Wilde
Presented by BMO Financial Group on the open-air Greek Stage at Guild Park in Scarborough
Artistic Director and Guild Festival Founder Sten Eirik says:
“Earnest” is a pleasurable piece of fluff made rich by the thorny wisdom lurking underneath. Two young gentlemen of the Victorian era reveal to each other how they’ve outsmarted a world of day-to-day bigotry, boredom and oppressive propriety. They each lead a double life in order to have a measure of freedom and fun. Thus, the unfolding of “Earnest” reflects the way Oscar Wilde estranged himself from the decorum of his times. Public and private stand opposed, as they did for much of Wilde’s own life.”

Confessions of an Operatic Mute




Herculean Effort is currently in pre-production with a one man show, inspired by Briane’s first career – as a non-singing performer with the Canadian Opera Company.
Over a seven-year period Briane appeared in roles ranging from a Nubian Slave to an “Elegant Gentlemen”, logging 287 performances without singing a note.
Sharing his successes and failures, both on stage and in romance, this comical one hour show, charts his course from the audience of the O’Keefe Centre in Toronto, when he was 8, to his adventures on tour visiting ten provinces and 38 states.
After his retirement from opera Briane went on to a career as a stand-up comic in the Yuk Yuks circuit, appearing with Howie Mandel and Jim Carrey and on A&E’ “Evening at the Improv”..
“Confessions” which previewed at the SouloTheatre Festivals in Toronto last May and in Totnes, England last July, is being remounted and improved by Dora Award winning director by Peter Moss – petermoss.ca

EL JINETE – A MARIACHI OPERA

Featuring Mariachi Los Dorados, El Jinete is a tale of love, vengeance and the supernatural, told through classics of the Mariachi repertoire. Inspired by the Golden Era of Mexican cinema, the show uses multi-layered projections to make it a black and white film come to life. The Rider is a cursed mariachi with a bullet wound in his heart; like a Mexican Orpheus, he crosses the border into El Norte to avenge the kidnapping of his bride. On the other side of the Rio Grande, he finds a strange and modern world, from which he may never return….

Guild Festival Theatre proudly presents The Importance of Being Earnestby Oscar Wilde
Presented by BMO Financial Group on the open-air Greek Stage at Guild Park in Scarborough
Artistic Director and Guild Festival Founder Sten Eirik says:
“Earnest” is a pleasurable piece of fluff made rich by the thorny wisdom lurking underneath. Two young gentlemen of the Victorian era reveal to each other how they’ve outsmarted a world of day-to-day bigotry, boredom and oppressive propriety. They each lead a double life in order to have a measure of freedom and fun. Thus, the unfolding of “Earnest” reflects the way Oscar Wilde estranged himself from the decorum of his times. Public and private stand opposed, as they did for much of Wilde’s own life.”

Confessions of an Operatic Mute




Herculean Effort is currently in pre-production with a one man show, inspired by Briane’s first career – as a non-singing performer with the Canadian Opera Company.
Over a seven-year period Briane appeared in roles ranging from a Nubian Slave to an “Elegant Gentlemen”, logging 287 performances without singing a note.
Sharing his successes and failures, both on stage and in romance, this comical one hour show, charts his course from the audience of the O’Keefe Centre in Toronto, when he was 8, to his adventures on tour visiting ten provinces and 38 states.
After his retirement from opera Briane went on to a career as a stand-up comic in the Yuk Yuks circuit, appearing with Howie Mandel and Jim Carrey and on A&E’ “Evening at the Improv”..
“Confessions” which previewed at the SouloTheatre Festivals in Toronto last May and in Totnes, England last July, is being remounted and improved by Dora Award winning director by Peter Moss – petermoss.ca
