Snapshot Productions

Quebec-based commercial theatre company formed by Allan Sandler and Roger Peace in 1988.

It began as a dinner theatre troupe performing highly successful works like Shear Madness, A Tribute to Broadway, Nunsense (I and II). Soon the company had too large a following and began to expand to bigger houses with works like Piaf: Love Conquers All and Lady Day at Emerson's Bar and Grill.

In 1994 Snapshot struck a co-production agreement with the Saidye Bronfman Centre and for the house produced Beau Jest, the unbelievably successful Sisters Rosensweig (starring American Gavin MacLeod), Crazy For You, and the tryout for the Joan of Arc musical Jeanne.

In 1997 Snapshot mounted a larger production of Jeanne, in French, at the Place des Arts with translation by Antonine Maillet. Directed by Martin Charnin, it was not a success. The company has not produced a work since (though Sandler and Peace have gone on to produce works separately).
