4 Scenes and a Cup of Tea

 

Four scenes were chosen from the Winter 2020 Scene Writing Course (taught by Dan Needles) and were performed on stage at the Simcoe Street Theatre on June 12th, 2022. Two performances were offered, and the cast, crew, and audience members had a blast! This year we introduced some new lighting and sound effects and some very creative use of props. Kudos to Anne Raciunas (Director) and Janet Wilkinson (Producer and Stage Manager) for bringing these scenes to life for all of us to enjoy.

We all enjoyed seeing:
Princess Louise by Jake McArthur
TABATA by Janet Wilkinson
Doors by Drew Murdoch
What Goes Up by David Gee

Cemetery Stories 2021

If you were lucky enough to get tickets to Cemetery Stories, you enjoyed a top-notch tour, at the Presbyterian Cemetery on Poplar Sideroad. You witnessed the culmination of several months of planning and hard work.

I loved every one of this year’s comeback performances on the beautiful grounds of the First Presbyterian Cemetery. C.O.N.G.R.A.T.U.L.A.T.I.O.N.S. all round.

We’re Social

“Amateur community theatre is one of the last places in our culture where we can get together and make something out of nothing, just for the fun of it. It’s an experience that opens our minds, forges great friendships and sure makes a Canadian winter go by faster. We’ve been doing live theatre in various halls and churches in the Collingwood neighbourhood since first settlement.”

Town of Collingwood Land Acknowledgement:
For more than 15,000 years the First Nations walked upon, and cared for, the lands we now call home: Anishinaabek, Haudenosaunee, Ojibwe, and many others who cared for their families and communities, the way we now seek to care for ours.
The Town of Collingwood acknowledges the Lake Simcoe-Nottawasaga Treaty of 1818 and respects all of the Nation-to-Nation agreements that have formed relationships with the original inhabitants of Turtle Island; the reality of our shared history; the current contributions of Indigenous people within our community and seeks to continue empowering expressions of pride amongst all of the diverse stakeholders in this area.
We seek to do better, to continue to recognize, learn, and grow, in friendship and community, Nation-to-Nation.
