Over the last 25 years or so I have penned over 100 scripts for Jubilations / Celebrations Dinner Theatre and I still very much enjoy the entire process. Whether it be an original story idea, or a spoof on well-known movies or television shows it is always fun to come up with a humorous twist of our own.
For this show I had the pleasure of coming up with a story for the much loved characters from the TV classic “Golden Girls” and also 2 characters from the movie franchise – “Pitched Perfect.” Both of these shows have brought us strong, hilarious female characters who it has certainly been a blast to write for.
I thank Artistic Director / Director – Mr. Bob Cunningham, whom I have worked with for many years, for all his fantastic input and direction of the show. As always, I give kudos to the amazing WOW production team members for their great work and whose talents never cease to amaze me! I also would like to thank all the additional cast members in all 3 cities for their contributions to each and every show. Special thanks to our General Partners, Janet Cunningham and Doug Stephen and last but certainly not least I thank the 6 incredibly talented ladies who make up our cast.
Enjoy the show!
Ahhh, retirement living is such a peaceful quiet time… well for some of us anyway. Dorothy, Rose, Blanche and Sophia seem to have a different approach. Something is always causing a stir in the retirement land of these golden girls, and tonight is no exception!
Thanks so much for joining us tonight as we put our Jubilations Dinner Theatre parody twist on a couple of comedy hits. We thought it would be fun to combine the hilarious antics of these modern female comedy characters and their perfect pitch, with the ultimate classy ladies of the 1980’s. So we assembled a fantastic group of super talented woman from all across Canada and got to work. We are so pleased with the result and we think you will be too.
So sit back and let us show you what retirement looks like in the world of the Pitched Perfect golden Girls!

Gillian is thrilled to be back on the Jubilations stage! You may recognize her from her last Jubilations adventures, More Dirty Dancing or as Endora in Bewitching Elvis, but probably not for the last one as a giant red wig can be quite transformative!

She has toured extensively, performing from coast to coast and across France and the US. Gillian is a graduate of MacEwan University's Theatre Arts program, and holds a BA in English from the University of Winnipeg.
