Today is World Theatre Day, a day intended not only “to promote theatre in all its forms across the world,” but also “to enable theatre communities to promote their work on a broad scale so that governments and opinion leaders are aware of the value and importance of theatre in all its forms and support it.” (https://www.world-theatre-day.org/goals.html)

It was my second week on the job when Eric called me into his office and kindly asked Andrew and I to help coordinate our season launch video. I, of course, was thrilled to be a part of the fun. I was delighted when I was informed of what plays we would be presenting in our upcoming season and knew they deserved a great video to unveil them.

C’est toujours palpitant de mettre en scène une pièce qui s’inscrit dans un événement hors du commun. Parce que « Les Passants » c’est vraiment un projet unique! Depuis que le Théâtre la Catapulte a créé le « Projet Rideau Project », nous rêvions de créer avec le GCTC. Alors quand Eric Coates, alors nouveau directeur artistique du GCTC, m’a approché pour unir nos efforts dans une coproduction, je n’ai pas hésité un seul instant.

Part 1 – Can you build this for us?

In mid-October, Artistic Fraud of Newfoundland’s Producer, Patrick Foran, approached GCTC looking for a group to construct a touring set piece for their upcoming co-production with the National Arts Centre, "The Colony of Unrequited Dreams”.   The requirements were intriguing: a 24' long 'floating' cloud that needed to be erected, appear to float, dismantled, sometimes rigged and flown, and toured throughout three different venues all over the country.

I think I said yes before he finished asking the question.

In the late fall Artistic Director Eric Coates had called me up to his office. The previous evening he’d had been at a meeting with the Lawyer Play Committee and they had made a couple of decisions about the 2017 Lawyer Play fundraiser hosted by GCTC. First, they had decided they wanted to do MacBeth; second, they wanted me to direct. Was I interested?

 

Yes. Certainly, yes.

So, January is a fantastic time to be at GCTC. There is so much going on - Brooke Johnson’s Trudeau Stories is running on the mainstage, Les Passants is in rehearsal, and prep for 1979 is underway both here in Ottawa and in Niagara-on-the-Lake. And that’s just the mainstage shows! Up in the office, we’re hard at work putting together next year’s season, while down in the lobbies, we’ve got pre-show events like Chefs & Shows and Prologue, and post-show events like … drum roll, please … Late Night in the Lobby.

Have you been to one of our Community Nights lately? (Also known as the second preview or the first Wednesday of each show) Well, you may have noticed something a little different going on. Perhaps a couple of microphones set up as you walked in the door? Or echoes of an interesting conversation bouncing off the walls? Well, that’s the GCTC Prologue, a new, engaging pre-show event that is free to the public and hosted by Sandra Abma! The next one is coming up on Wednesday, January 11th at 6:45pm, and I’d like to tell you a little bit about it.

Oh boy....holiday shopping. We’ve all been there; a lot of us are there right now. You’ve got that person on your list that you’ve wracked your brain about and you still can’t find a gift for them. You’re days out from Christmas Day and all the standard gifts just won’t work: an LCBO gift card is too impersonal; you don’t know what restaurants they like; and they’ve already got plenty of socks. That elusive gift that can satisfy almost anyone is hard to find, but we’re pretty certain we’ve found it.
