Lawyer Play
tberish's picture

It’s less than a week until we open.  Less than a week before we charge the stage wearing mops, horns, and cobwebs,  fighting for our loves and lives.  Some of us are nervous.  Many of us are tired.  But I think it is fair to say that all of us are having a ridiculously good time.  And why on earth shouldn’t we be?  We are working with a talented, professional (and patient) production team.  We are playing with respected members of our legal community.  We are dancing.  We are yearning.  We are hurling colourful insults at each other (w

Do you know about our annual Lawyer Play fundraising event?  It is next week – April 24-26. Annually, we partner with the CCLA and the law community to produce a play with the proceeds going to GCTC and another charity partner.

If your favourite lawyer in town has not sold you a ticket yet you can always get one from the GCTC box office (613-236-5196).  I am proud to say that I was there for the first one 15 years ago and it is a real pleasure to work with the law community each year on this event.

The GCTC is a pretty remarkable place, with some pretty remarkable people working hard to make the artistic director’s vision come to life. This was really apparent at our recent 14/15 40th anniversary season launch where all of us behind the scenes were made a part of the announcement.

Wow! What a whirlwind it has been leading up to last night. If you didn't know, last night, GCTC launched its 40th anniversary season. It's a season that has a little of everything: Bollywood style dance, Ottawa's favourite clowns, a hit from Vancouver, an adaptation of an acclaimed book, a new play from Daniel MacIvor and the return of a sold-out show from undercurrents that tackles a career in the public service. You can have the entire season laid out for you by our Artistic Director Eric Coates in the video below.

A Midsummer Night’s Dream is soon to become a big reality. We are two weeks away from the performance dates and all the teams – from production to box office, and to our cast of dedicated lawyers, are working hard and looking forward to making this year’s Lawyer Play another big success.  The selection of the play was not traditional, which may have raised some doubts and fears... But, after a couple of text coaching lessons, the lawyers proved again that they can succeed in pretty much any play given to them.

March 27 is World Theatre Day! I know that most of you are already well aware of this and you're probably taking time off from the celebration just to read this post, but just in case you didn't have it on your calendar, here's a link to the World Theatre Day Message:

Did you hear? Mary Walsh is coming to GCTC. Well the time has finally arrived and Mary Walsh/Marg Delahunty is actually HERE! She’s been on the GCTC stage and performed her show Dancing with Rage once already. So, it’s kind of a big deal.  Yesterday was the media call: a day where a scene is performed several times for media and interviews are given. Yesterday was a media call unlike most others though. Instead of preparing a scene Marg Delahunty actually ambushed the media like she’s done to so many other unfortunate politicians and Canadian figures.

Box Office

It was once speculated that if Simon and Garfunkel performed a reunion concert the only suitable venue large enough to accommodate the demand for tickets would be the desert. Equally true is the current production arriving at GCTC March 18 - April 6. Mary Walsh`s Dancing With Rage has been consistently selling since we launched single ticket sales back in July. It is an exciting time to be a part of the box office team.
