I’m not back in town two days and my schedule is already packed with show after show that I want to go see.
First up, A Company of Fools have been running wild in parks across town with A Midsummer Night’s Dream. That’s until August 2nd. Click the link for schedule information.
Today, Arts Court launches it’s “Summer Fling” with Educating Rita until August 1st. They have a bunch of other shows lined up as well: Satin Dolls (August 6 &7), the bilingual play Les Inséparables (August 10 -22), and Swimming in the Shallows (August 12-22). The fling continues in other market venues as well – check out the link for full schedule and info.
Oh and if that’s not enough for you, the areas around Ottawa are booming as well. My old stomping ground, the Upper Canada Playhouse in Morrisburg has got The Long Weekend until August 1st; Perth has a new Classic Theatre Festival that presents Blythe Spirit (also until August 1st) and The Voice of the Turtle (August 6-29); and in Prescott The St Lawrence Shakespeare Festival runs two shows: Macbeth & the Trouble on Dibble Street from now until August 14.
With so much going on, you can be sure that I will see you at the theatre!
