It's a HIT! Must close April 5: Critical and public acclaim for  our final production of the season, UBU Roi, says this one of our most outstanding works in recent memory. Congratulations to MFA Director (and Monster Theatre AD) Ryan Gladstone who has given Alfred Jarry's landmark absurdist play a delightfully 'twisted' modern twist - as a play within a play put on by "Alfred Jarry's School for Wayward Girls". Only 3 more performances - book your tickets now. Wear your laughing pants and your thinking hat.  Video teaser at the link: "What is Ubu Roi?" - The Jarry School for Wayward Girls +The University of British Columbia

Our  BFA Alumnus Torrence Coobs takes a lead role in TV series premiere of REIGN tomorrow night!

Reign will take viewers back into history to tell the fictional story of Mary, Queen of Scots (Adelaide Kane). The story begins with her arrival back at the French Court after surviving an assassination attempt. 

She's been engaged to Prince Francis (Toby Regbo) since she was a young child, but whether they will marry or not is questionable. On her arrival, it's immediately apparent that Francis' half-brother, Bash (played by BFA acting alumnus Torrance Coombs), is smitten by the Queen. Reign premieres on Thursday, October 17 at 9 pm ET on the CW Television Network. See Coombs in a preview and interview about his role in the new series:
