"This season MAT is exploring the complex motivations, morality and nature of villainy. Who are the villains in our families, culture and memories? Do they create us? Motivate us?

Perhaps they are us.

This season we are bringing a classic musical tale, an exciting modern play and a timeless drama to Orillia audiences."

Stevie Baker, MAT Board President

Gypsy: A Musical Fable
Book: Arthur Laurents | Lyrics: Stephen Sondheim | Music: Jule Styne

Often referred to as the greatest American musical, Gypsy follows the dreams of supreme stage mother, Rose, as she tours her growing children through the vaudeville circuit of the 1920’s and the ever evolving demands and desires of show business. Based on the real memoirs of striptease legend Gypsy Rose Lee, Gypsy is a fascinating tale of greed, ambition, selfishness, showbusiness, and self-discovery.

February 2025
The Thanksgiving Play
By Larissa FastHorse

In this sharp, satirical, comedy, the first play produced on Broadway written by a Native American woman, four (very) well-intentioned theatre people walk into an elementary school. The work at hand: creating a First Thanksgiving pageant to celebrate Native American Heritage Month that won’t ruffle any feathers.

This classic drama about the realities facing women in family and societal structures in the late 1940’s comes alive when older sister Blanche, forced to leave their grand ancestral home, comes to stay with her sister, Stella, and Stella’s working-class husband Stanley.
