At the crumbling but historic Aristocrat theatre, Shine Mionne and her chosen family of sexpots and misfits struggle to save their home from imminent gentrification in the guise of smooth-talking money man Richard Suit.
Along the way Frankie, the newbie actor from out of town, and Grace, the dimpled graduate student who can't seem to keep her clothes on, are drawn into the vortex of life at The Aristocrat by a diva named Lulu. As Suit and Shine fight for control of the show, Lulu finds her leading-lady status jeopardized by Suit's meddling and a series of whirlwind affairs threatens to throw the impending opening into chaos.
SHINE is an award-winning original musical theatre show written and composed by three Vancouverites. It has been mounted to critical acclaim in Vancouver, Seattle and New York City.
