Background Artiste

Mary decides to spice up her life and join Alfredo Leache's Background Artistes Agency. But spending just a short time in the office Mary learns that being a walk-on artiste isn't all glamour. She faces the eccentric, elderly couple Walter and Enid, who pepper their speech with malapropisms, but later reveal their true surprising identity; secretary Jessica, who ceaselessly acts out her ambition to be an air hostess; and Alfred, the tireless boss who works hard for his actors against the odds.

Because we want to keep our audiences and performers safe from COVID-19, Naked Stage is not presenting physical performances right now.

We will also be staging a live show of Murder By Default at Theatre in the Country once Covid restrictions have been lifted. 

You can still view our first on-line presentation, The Velveteen Rabbit

At Naked Stage, we are fully committed to the health and safety of our performers and our guests. 

In order to comply with government and Provincial Health Authority requirements regarding social distancing, we have postponed our scheduled in person productions. 


This was a heartbreaking decision for all of us, but it's the right thing to do for our community and for everyone's sake to help slow the spread of Covid-19. 

We're currently assessing and monitoring the situation to plan our next shows whether we bring it to you online, in the theatre or a combination of both. Thank you for your support and understanding. 

​Please stay tuned to this site or sign up for our newsletter for updates.

"I've missed only one or two of the performances so far, and I really enjoyed all of them. The chain-rattler in the play about Scrooge was excellent and the Southern Belles in the Sipping Society - I just loved them all!"
