Having a “hot time” at the Blackhorse Theatre     

April 28, 2022   ·   0 Comments

Kristen Da Silva’s high stakes, no holds barred, chilli cook-off “Five Alarm” comes to the Blackhorse Village Player’s stage.

More than sauce simmers in this zany comedy, as a fierce rivalry ensues between Ava Rose (Cheryl Phillips), the contest founder’s daughter and her mean-spirited childhood ex-best friend Connie (Rose Craig) .

For 26 years, Ava has tried (and failed) to replicate her father’s famous recipe, but the recipe’s notes on that critical ingredient that made the chilli such a winner mysteriously disappeared years ago.

Of course, Ava is saddled with Ellen (Jo-Anne Pulfer) a ditzy assistant who definitely lacks food prep experience while Connie has Tucker (John Sellens) a “Cordon Blue” chef to aid in her court.

To add to the hijinks Tucker idolizes Rose, and develops a crush on Ellen, so is only too happy to help when things are starting to go sideways. Things are really slung in motion when Caleb (Robert Redden) an old friend from the past arrives as the commentator for the local TV station.

You certainly do not want to miss this hilarious comedy as these intertwined characters entertain us with their intense energy and flawless timing as they try to work through old feelings and unusual predicaments.

“Five Alarm “ runs Friday and Saturday evenings at 8:15 pm and Sunday matinees* at 2:15 pm (April 29, 30, May 1*, 6, 7, 8*, 13, 14, 15* 2022), For tickets contact the box office at 905-880-5002 or visit:

The Blackhorse Theatre is located at 17272 Mount Wolfe Rd. & Hwy. #9 Caledon ON. So, for a hot time in the old town come on out to our spicy new comedy, “Five Alarm.”
