Box Office
Kenneth DeBaeremaeker's picture

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.

This time of year is all about renewal. The days get longer, the temperatures get milder and Ottawans come out of hibernation to enjoy patios, festivals and great Canadian theatre.

Lawyer Play rehearsals have begun!

 

In the chasm of the Artscourt Studio, 25-odd members of the Ottawa legal community read A Midsummer Night’s Dream formally, for the first time, this past Sunday. The cast is succinct, knowledgeable, and hilarious. Shakespearean text is difficult language to understand, at times, but the text coaching sessions the cast attended with GCTC’s Artistic Director Eric Coates in January, and an introductory lecture to Shakespeare by this year’s Lawyer Play Director, Patrick Gauthier, really paid-off.

Aren’t we all happy to be seeing this dreary and dismal February coming to an end? After a great time at undercurrents and the closing of This is War, what else does February really have to offer anyways, right? Not much. The end of February offers plenty of possibilities though! As if you didn’t already know, the fabulous (never has there been a more appropriate use of the word) Mary Walsh is coming to our fair theatre with her incredible one-woman show Dancing with Rage in just a matter of weeks.  If you haven’t already booked your tickets, WHAT ON EARTH ARE YOU WAITING FOR?!!!

Intern
Tommy Nguyen's picture

My name is Tommy Nguyen, a second year public relations student at Algonquin College. I’ve had the privilege of interning at the Great Canadian Theatre Company for their 2013 to 2014 theatrical season. By being a part of the GCTC, I’m pursuing my passion for the arts and building my dream career in art and entertainment publicity.


Performance, in many ways, reflects what we do on a daily basis. Whether you are politician on “the hill” or a barista interacting with café goers, there is an interaction happening which defines how people react to you.

Hello,
Last night I got to see the last two shows of the undercurrent festival - A Quiet Sip of Coffee and Morro and Jasp do Puberty. Who knew puberty was really that funny! A Quiet Sip of Coffee I am still thinking about – the sign of a good story they say… It definitely caught my attention and I recommend it. After you have seen it let me know what you think.

This is a crazy busy time at GCTC with the opening of the undercurrents Festival, the main stage play This Is War by Hannah Moscovitch, an Acoustic Wave concert and the Fearless Women Panel, but we think “the more the merrier”.
