2000 / 2001 Season

After a long creation process spanning eight months, we were proud to present to you the all-knew, all-original RubyCAB 2000. Created in collaboration with music ensemble Talking Pictures, this raucous evening of jazz cabaret picked up where our 1998 hit The Ruby Cabaret left off, ushering in the new millenium with enlightened, offensive, highly entertaining skits, songs and social satire. RubyCAB 2000 featured most of the original artists including Shawn Macdonald, Ian Ross McDonald, Dave MacKay, Diane Brown, Carmen Aguirre, Katrina Dunn and Talking Pictures jazz Ensemble. RubyCAB 2000 was a huge critical and popular success.

Mission Statement

Multi award-winning Ruby Slippers Theatre produces provocative text-based theatre from the vanguard of the English and French Canadian canon. We further the voices of women in theatre, empowering them on and offstage, and are the only company in Vancouver whose mission includes producing the contemporary Quebecois canon in English. Our work illuminates diverse and underrepresented perspectives and social issues, inspiring independent critical thought, communion, and diversity.
