Hello UWRA members!
Put your detective skills to the test as the hair‐raising murder mystery comedy Shear Madness is presented by the UWSA and UWRA! Plan now to spend an evening off campus with your friends and peers from UWaterloo.

The UWSA’s social committee has booked the St. Jacobs Schoolhouse Theatre for a private performance of the hilarious whodunit, “Shear Madness” on Wednesday, November 28, 2018.

Shear Madness is a production of Drayton Entertainment, one of Canada’s most successful professional theatre companies.  Hairdresser Tony Whitcomb and manicurist Barbara DeMarco comb through the tasks of a normal day until concert pianist Isabel Czerny is murdered. Tony, Barbara, and the Shear Madness customers – Eleanor Shubert, Eddie Lawrence, Nick Rosetti and Mikey Thomas – are all suspects. But whodunit? Witness the fun and take a stab at solving the crime!

We encourage you come early for a Cocktail reception, with a cash bar and delicious food to enjoy while mingling with friends from UWaterloo.

Tickets are $40.00 and are available through Eventastic. The Schoolhouse Theatre is set up cabaret style, with chairs of 4 surrounding cocktail tables. Seating is first-come-first-served. Parking is free at the theatre and a coat check is complimentary.


COCKTAIL RECEPTION: starts at 6:30 p.m.

PRIVATE PERFORMANCE: starts at 7:30 p.m.
