We have partly cast The Kitchen Witches by Caroline Smith, and are looking for a 30-ish actor (or looking 30-sh) to play Stephen. Please contact us if you are interested.


Synopsis - Isobel Lomax and Dolly Biddle are two "mature" cable-access cooking show hostesses who have hated each other for 30 years, ever since Larry Biddle dated one and married the other. When circumstances put them together on a TV show called "The Kitchen Witches", the insults are flung harder than the food! Dolly's long-suffering TV-producer son Stephen tries to keep them on track, but as long as Dolly's dressing room is one inch closer to the set than Isobel's, it's a losing battle, and the show becomes a rating smash as Dolly and Isobel top all the celebrity chefs.

Jean Jardine Miller is directing.

Rehearsals - Wednesdays or Thursdays (to be decided) 7:00 to 9:00 pm and Sundays 1:00 to 5:00 pm. August 20th to October 12th

Performances - October 20th, 21st, 27th and 28th at 8:00 pm and October 22nd at 2:00 pm, 2017.


Ticket are available online and at the following locations during the weeks prior to performance dates:

   - Holmes Appliances & Music Shop

   - Caravaggio IDA

   - Shelburne Town Hall

When ordering online, if there is adequate time, you can use the 'Special Instructions' box to request that tickets be mailed to you. Otherwise, they will be waiting for you at the theatre for half an hour prior to the performance.


When purchased for the season, i.e. for each of our three productions, tickets are available at a 20% discount until the final performance of the first production of the season.


For a club outing, a local business, an alumni reunion, birthday party or just for you and some friends and family, a Tipling Stage Company performance could be just the ticket - excuse the pun! You're certain to find one production during the season (perhaps more than one) that will appeal to all the members of your party.

A $5 discount per ticket is available for groups of 10 or more. Group tickets are non-refundable and must be purchased in advance of the performance that you wish to attend. Contact us.


To assist charitable organizations in Shelburne and area, we present a "preview performance" of each of our productions on the Thursday evening prior to opening night. Tickets are made available to them for fund-raising purposes - i.e. you determine how much you will charge your members/volunteers/associates and pay us just a nominal $2 per ticket for administration costs. Please use our contact form to request more information or to order your tickets.


Sponsors at any level receive 2 tickets to the performance or their choice. Check out our Sponsorship Opportunities page for more information on how you can help support your community theatre.
