For those familiar with the Fort McMurray theatre scene, there will be plenty of recognizable faces on stage during this festival!

Theatre; Just Because is pleased to present two pieces in the festival this year to celebrate their 5 year anniversary: What Time Does the 3 O’Clock Parade Start? and Mere Mortals.

What Time Does the 3 O’Clock Parade Start? is written and directed by long-time local performer Mike Jones, marking his first time behind the table and pen! The sun rises on a theme park, the morning after a wild staff party. As nothing seems to go right, the park owner Keith and his colourful staff battle an overzealous French woman, nosy bloggers, impromptu inspections and malfunctioning rides in this hilarious farce! Parade features Zachary Barrett, Hilary Talbot, Alexandra Durocher, Aleaha Frigon, Holly Snow, Matt Salem, Sheri Reed, Jim Geary, Gabriel Synman, and Samson Naud.

Mere Mortals is written by David Ives, an ever-popular playwright at the festival. Director Ashley Friemark returns to Fort McMurray after being away for several years, jumping right back into the theatre community! This zany comedy eavesdrops on a lunch hour as three construction workers share increasingly amazing secrets of their past, and features Jon Q-Pid, Justin Shaw, and Diana Moser.

Two-time ADFA regional festival Outstanding Director winner Hanna Fridhed returns with The Myths and Bricks Project by Dustin Robert Blakeman, a one person play featuring Zenon Campbell. A man sits in a room, his only companion a brick that refuses to speak. Unfaltering, he tells it stories of life and love, disappointment and disillusionment, comedy and tragedy, all the while aspiring for one simple commodity: an answer.
