Community Theatre Productions

Collingwood, Ontario

NEW COVID – 19 UPDATE. July, 2021

At our June board meeting, the directors made the disappointing decision to cancel our Fall Tour once again. Regrettably, there are still several “unknowns” that prevent us from moving forward. Our five plays will remain locked in the vault until October 2022.

In the meantime, Gaslight Community Theatre Productions has some intriguing new offerings. We will be holding an outdoor event called Cemetery Stories. The dates for this event are October 23rd and 24th, 2021. Stay tuned for the July Gaslight Greetings Newsletter when we will reveal the details of this event…as well as some other interesting plans.

As always, we thank you for your continued support and flexibility.

CEMETERY STORIES

The dates are October 23rd and 24th. The venue is an outdoor location – First Presbyterian Church Cemetery located on Poplar Side Road in Collingwood. Our Gaslight Writing Team has researched and written five wonderful ten-minute scenes.  Each scene is distinctly different – some will bring a tear to your eye and others will make you laugh out loud. Our Gaslight Guides will meet each group and take you on a tour of the cemetery. You will stop along the way to watch local actors bring these stories to life.  The Guides will keep you entertained with local folklore and tell you about some cemetery customs, traditions and superstitions. The tour groups will be kept small, in accordance with Covid health standards.  The first tour will begin at 10:00 a.m. and the last tour will begin at 3:10 p.m. You will choose the time of your tour when you purchase your tickets.  The length of each tour is approximately one hour and 40 minute (including a time for a light refreshment). The tours will involve short walks and standing.  If you prefer to sit, bring along a foldable lawn chair.

Ticket sales to the public are starting at 12 noon*** on Friday, September 24th, tickets may be purchased online, by phone, or in person, until sold out. We hope to see you there.

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.”
