The Stories From the Mystic Mountains

With Shivamanohari School of Performing Arts

November 14, 2021​

This show brings forward the ancient art of leather shadow puppetry, with puppets from India, Java, and Bali. This show is mainly targeted towards children with disabilities to help break down barriers around communication. It is aimed towards children with language/speech delays or even for children who find social interactions challenging. Puppets are a useful strategy to implement as they are simple and effective, they provide children with the opportunity to portray a completely different character. Children with additional needs including Autism can learn how to engage in social situations through role-play with puppets. Through puppet play, children increase their confidence, sense of identity, and language development.

There will be an interactive workshop following the show where audience members can build their own shadow puppet, and present on the small puppet theatre.

The World Premier of


February 12-14, 2021

Created & Performed by 

Bruce Hunter & Erica May-Wood

The duo that brought The Gin Game to RuminariLive last February returned with a romantic comedy like no other.

In ROM30 & JULEE8, we followed a couple of ancient souls as they tried to uncover the mystery of their longstanding curse in love, and whether the course of it can be changed. There was a little bit of history, a little futuristic pondering, some love, and a whole lot of laughs.

This show was premiered virtually, with audiences tuning in from all over the country!



January 30th, 2021 

This storyteller extraordinaire will have you laughing right to the end. His phenomenal stand-up show doesn't have a theme or a twist or require any trigger warnings. It is life packed with laughter, and the journey is unafraid of truth. Come ponder why the world's gone crazy and why it doesn't seem to be getting any better. Join one of Beaumont's own comedy stars as he tries to make sense of it all. 

This event was live-streamed to people right across the country!

I, Claudia

October 16 - 18, 2020

Directed by Daro Solina, Denmark

Solo Show Starring Jenn Townsend

Who doesn't like butterflies?  Everybody likes butterflies.  

Claudia is not a butterfly, yet, but she has the potential to be any butterfly and infinitely more.  Through I, Claudia, Kristen Thomson shows how incomplete the common image we have of metamorphosis is.  As idyllic as it is, the thought of that one moment in a lifetime when we turn into our most beautiful self and fly freely away is just an illusion.  Metamorphosis does not last one moment but continuously throughout a person's life.

I, Claudia raises the question of not only of what we are and what we will become but of all the life that is in between.  Life is made of moments, and a decision made in one moment can have a huge impact not only on our life but through generations.  Some may call this the butterfly effect...

The 2020 Beaumont Fringe 

August 21 - 23, 2020

Alberta's own Comedians Bob Beddow and Cindy Rivers took the studio stage on Friday and Saturday, while Martin Kerr and Andrew Scott took over the outside for a night of live music on Sunday Night. 

Tiger's Hearts Collective premiered their new work-in-progress, Soror Cara (Latin for Dear Sister).

The research behind this gem of a piece was when the writer/performers came across a letter.  A birthday invitation from the year 100AD, written in Roman Britain from Claudia Severa to her friend Lepidina.  This is the first sample of a woman's handwriting in Latin ever discovered.

And so the play so beautifully presented on two balcony levels came to Beaumont in 2020 on August twenty-second.

Bad Baby Presents

Rules Control the Fun

Directed by Briana Brown

Solo Show starring Janelle Hanna

Rules Control the Fun ​is a hilarious play about love, vulnerability, and shame. Self-proclaimed Fringe expert Bad Baby wanted to become an actor so that she could sleep in and kiss boys. But lately, she hasn’t gotten to do either of those things. Now, all of that is about to change. Showcasing exceptional acting skills, unmatched good looks, a huge range of emotional faces, a balloon arch, and a surprise you can’t miss! 

Janelle Hanna brought Bad Baby to life in a performance that Mooney on Theatre called “Emotionally moving...flawless.”

Hailed as “A true Fringe gem!” The Show was part of the line up at the Edmonton International Fringe Festival and kickstarted the  Beaumont Fringe in 2019.
