Get an Umbrella and Come on Down!

We know. It’s cold outside and you feel like it’s midnight when it’s only five o’clock. You’ve been eating crackers for dinner for weeks. It’s time to get out your umbrella and brave the November chill, because inside at the Staircase Theatre, it’s warm and cozy and we’ve got stories to make you laugh and cry. Join us for the last show of 2019 tomorrow night – Thursday November 21st! Doors open at 7:00pm, Stories begin at 7:30pm.

Graves of Bones That Do Not Make a Sound

Pablo Neruda famously once wrote of “graves full of bones that do not make a sound”, but his own bones may be telling a story, and a scientist is listening. Come on out Thursday night to hear researcher Debi Poiner from the Department of Anthropology at McMaster University share her passion for uncovering the past – solving mysteries through bones and archives to rewrite the histories we think we know.

Tickets available now!

She is equally as passionate about creating memories with her family through travel and being in nature.   She grew up on the west coast of California, has lived in Germany and France, and in 2003 moved to Hamilton with her family.

Serenity Now… or Not

Myron Groover is, in escalating order of insufferability, a librarian, archivist,  and epicurean. He has lived in four countries on two continents and once crossed the Bosphorous just so he could say he’d visited Asia.

We know it’s cold out there – it’s November. But, we think you should bundle up anyways and come hear Myron tell you about that time he just needed to get away for some peace and quiet. (Spoiler alert- hilarity ensues.)

Show starts at 7:30, but come early for the best seats in the house. Tickets available here!

Fun at the LIVE MUSIC CONCERT– A Cautionary Tale

This is Tim.

Come on out to the Staircase Theatre Thursday November 21st and hear six stories of survival and triumph… or something like that. Squeaky Wheel and the human spirit? Or at the very least, that time I thought I wanted that thing.

Tickets on sale for $10 until noon on the 21st. Get yours here!
