A bit more about Winesday
It all started on an oversized couch...
There we were, five female friends a few bottles in, watching some ridiculous political event and yelling at the TV. We were talking about our next musical theatre project while feeling exhausted from the day's events - and wondering why there wasn't a show where we got to just sit around and drink wine. That very night the idea of Winesday was uncorked as Jenne, the bookwriter/lyricist, began to ferment our offhand comments into fine musical form.
Knowing audiences might be feeling just as exhausted as we were that night, it became important for them to share in the bottles-up experience. That's when the show became ready to pour as Winesday the Musical + Wine Tasting.
The show was produced by Five Cork Productions at various venues in South Western Ontario pre-pandemic and then had an extended run in Niagara Wine Country in 2022.

Coming to you from Niagara wine country!
The most recent production of the Winesday was at Hernder Estate Wines in the Niagara Wine Region in summer/fall 2022. (DIgital Winebill available.) The show has also appeared around Ontario at the Olde Walkerville Theatre and the Chatham Capitol Theatre and in Cleveland, Ohio at Theatre in the Square. PLUS there's a French language version called VINdredi that recently premiered at the Chatham Cultural Centre.
