The Norwegians: a Many Hats Production

Norway hath no funny as a woman scorned!

Many Hats Theatre Company is pleased to announce that tickets are now on sale for The Norwegians the third show in our tenth anniversary season!

Have you ever wondered what it would look like if Thelma and Louise got lost in Fargo?  Here’s your chance! The Norwegians is a quirky black comedy about heartbreak and what you can do about it, if you have the number of a really nice Norwegian gangster.

Set in the middle of winter in Minnesota, the Scorpio is definitely compatible with the Leo, but the Italian may not mix so well with the girl from Kentucky.  Add in a little baseball and too much wine, and someone might just get killed!

The Norwegians by award winning playwright C. Denby Swenson, opens July 6 and runs until  July 29. Performances are ThursdayFriday and Saturday at 8:00PM with a SundayMatinee at 2:00PM. All performances are on the Cannery Stage in the Cannery Trade Centre, 1475 Fairview Road, Penticton.

We’re having TWO gala opening nights! First, on July 6there will be our traditional opening featuring wines of our official winery sponsor Play Estate Winery along with tasty treats from The Nest and Nectar. 

THEN on Friday July 7 there will be a reception immediately following the performance in The Nest and Nectar featuring the most excellent craft brews of official brewery sponsor The Cannery Brewing Company, scintillating finger snacks from The Nest and Nectar and as as added feature there will be door prizes furnished by Andre Martin of our official print sponsor, Minuteman Press.

The Nest and Nectar (right next door!) will be open Tuesday through Sunday with full dinner service on show nights when they will also be staying open late for a nosh or a cocktail after the show!! And they also have a dynamite Sunday Brunch which has proven extremely popular! May we suggest you phone 250-493-7275 for a reservation to avoid disappointment?

“We’re the kind of guys you want to bring home to your mom. Depending on how you feel about your mom.”
