How to Fight a Cold Snap in Ottawa

Winter in Toronto, this year at least, has been amazing. Most days have hovered somewhere between 1 and 5 degrees (Celsius for any Americans reading this) and the snow melts away as soon as it arrives.  But I will be in Ottawa this weekend, in the middle of what is being dubbed a “cold snap”.

I don’t like the sound of that at all.

So here’s what I plan on doing about it – stay in one spot.  More specifically, the Studio Theatre at the Irving Greenberg Theatre Centre for the undercurrents Festival.

Care to join me?

Saturday

2:00 pm HIGHWAY 63: THE FORT MAC SHOW
4:00 pm LIVE FROM THE BELLY OF A WHALE
7:00 pm AND THEN IT HAPPENS
9:00 pm FALLING OPEN

And on Sunday, I’ll be closing out my festival adventures at 2:00 pm with recent Canada Reads winner CARMEN AGUIRRE’S BLUE BOX.

You can also expect some Live Tweeting between shows and maybe a blog update or two thanks to the Great Canadian Theatre Company’s free public WiFi. How most other theatre companies have not gotten on board the WiFi band wagon, I do not know, but kudos to GCTC for leading the charge.

 

As always, I’ll be seeing you at the theatre!

  1. Cold snap? We’ve been sailing positive temperatures all week (daytime, anyway). I guess if it goes to -10ish this weekend, that’s cold in comparison, but for a typical Ottawa February? Psh. I’ve been wondering where winter went.

    Regardless of whether we have a spring or winter-type weekend, enjoy the shows!
