POSTPONED TO 2024! To Perfection, by Meghan Gardiner, directed by Renee Iaci of shameless hussy productions and a Delta Stageworks company member, is onstage at the Genesis Theatre in 2024 with new dates COMING SOON!. Wholesome and hearty. Fresh and frosty…Is it cake? Or is it To Perfection? Gloria, a former celebrity TV chef, played by the inimitable Patti Allan, is reuniting with her estranged grandchild, Alex. The temperature rises when Alex, (CeCe Ludwar), comes out as non-binary and opens a ‘genderational’ divide between them. Can Gloria and Alex find the perfect mix for their family recipe? Or will it all bubble over and explode? To Perfection tackles issues of modern life without the sugar coating, showing us family conflict in a relatable and hilarious way, and ensuring audiences discover all the right ingredients for the perfect food-for-thought theatre outing.

Then & Now – an online mini web series
Back in the spring 2020, as the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic went from something happening ‘’over there” somewhere; to something fearfully immediate and visceral in our lives, at Delta Stageworks we started thinking about creating a storytelling theatre piece around these lived experiences in our local community. We invited members of the community to join us in documenting and creatively processing what was happening around us and created a theatre event. We figured that sometime down the road we might all want to reflect back on some of the monumental impacts to our lives the pandemic wrought.
Flash forward to 2023… working with filmmaker Cliff Caprani the company has come together again to take a retrospective look at the impacts of two years of lockdown living. In a ‘docucomedy’ digital mini series that delivers humour and hope, you’ll meet members of the Delta community and the Delta Stageworks creatives who put the original project together.
