Globe Theatre acknowledges Drs. Morris & Jacqui Shumiatcher for their generous donation, which enables the bold, imaginative traditions of the series to grow and develop.
Featuring a complete cast of Saskatchewan talent, Mr. Marmalade stars Amy Matysio (The Shape of Things, Dogbarked, Cinderella, George Dandin ) as Lucy, Joey Tremblay ( A Man for All Seasons, Sylvia, Twelfth Night, Just So) as Mr. Marmalade.
The full cast of Mr. Marmalade includes Jayden Pfeifer (Dogbarked, George Dandin), Briana Buckmaster (Cinderella, Disney's Beauty and the Beast), Sabryn Rock (Honk!, Just So), Rob van Meenen (The Shape of Things, A Guide to Mourning), and Brian Boley (Regina Debut).
In Noah Haidle's outrageous new comedy Mr. Marmalade, adult behaviour is interpreted through the characters Lucy (Amy Matysio) and Larry (Jayden Pfeifer), two very smart children. Lucy has a precocious vocabulary, killer skills in the kitchen, a husband who spends too much time at the office, and she's just four years old! Unfortunately, her imaginary world revolves around her friend Mr. Marmalade (Joey Tremblay), a too-busy businessman, who doesn't have much time for the child that adores him. Mr. Marmalade is a savage dark comedy about what it takes to grow up in these difficult times.
