MAT’s seventh and last film of this season is The Lady in the Van.

This film tells the true story of the relationship between Alan Bennett and the singular Miss Shepherd (Maggie Smith), a woman of uncertain origins who 'temporarily' parked her van in Bennett's London driveway and proceeded to live there for 15 years.

This film will be shown on Wednesday, May 4 at Orillia Galaxy Cinemas at 4 p.m. and 7 p.m.  Tickets ($10, cash only) go on sale at the door beginning at 3 p.m.

Shout Out!




Building on the hugely successful inaugural presentation of live theatre in our newly converted performance space in June 2015,Mariposa Arts Theatre is excited to announce its June 2016 show.

On June 2nd, June 3rd, June 4th, and June 5th , 2016,  MAT will present The Melville Boys,  a full 2 act play by Norm Foster. The play begins with plans for a relaxing weekend trip full of fishing, football and beer for the Melville brothers -  along with confronting eldest brother Lee’s terminal illness. But their plans are altered when the boys meet two attractive sisters, who inadvertently change more than just their agenda. The Melville Boys is a lighthearted comedy full of vigor about brotherhood and the unexpected.

The shows will be held in our performance space at 12 Brammer Drive, Orillia. Tickets are $20 per person and will include a delicious tart plus coffee or tea at intermission.

Show time will be 7:30 on June 2nd, 3rd, 4th and at 2:00 p.m. on June 5th.  Only 160 tickets will be available for all four shows – so hurry and get yours early.  Contact us at for tickets.
