Its Christmas Eve and a young newspaper reporter on the brink of being fired has been assigned a last-chance story about a typical family Christmas - his family's Christmas. He goes home to his recently widowed mother, his crazy uncle, his eccentric grandmother, and his battling siblings and their neurotic spouses, who provide no shortage of material.One by one, we learn each family member's secrets, problems, and dysfunctions, and when they learn that he's writing an article with some very personal information, the fruitcake hits the fan. The question is, will the magic of Christmas bring this family back together?

Our Approach

Our goal and our passion has been to work hard, entertain our fans, and just plain have fun. Shows go up twice a year - in the late fall and early spring. We like a good laugh, and our repertoire reflects our diverse sense of humour - from the classic wit of The Importance of Being Ernest to the rollicking comedic action of our 20th anniversary production, Til Beth Do Us Part.


"Taking the starry evening ride to Mile Hill is a special treat. I guess you could say, MHM is like a box of crackerjacks. Some might say the shows can be corny, but they can also be caramel sweet, slightly salty, and full of the greatest surprises. That's why audiences return - they know they are going to be filled up with a great big, low-cal, guilt-free happy." -- Cambrian Players, Thunder Bay, ON

"We have enjoyed live theatre in Thunder Bay, Grand Marais, Minneapolis, Winnipeg and Palm Springs. Mile Hill tops them all as pure entertaining theatre!" -- Doreen and Harry Sitch, Hymers, ON
