It’s getting closer and closer to closing time at GCTC. Every year for the holidays, the office, theatre and box office close down so everyone can recharge their batteries and enjoy time with their families.  So right now everyone is focusing on wrapping up their final duties of the year. We launched the fourth annual undercurrents: theatre below the mainstream festival last week.

Monday,  December 2nd was my first time at the Capital Critics Awards Gala in the Salon of the NAC. The NAC imagine that. I've heard of the Capital Critics Awards before, but this was my first up close and personal experience.  The Capital Critics Circle began in 1980 with a group of theatre critics with backgrounds as varied as the plays they review.  They have a number of categories similar to most theatre awards: Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Design, Best Production etc. They review local work, both professional and community.

Opening night of Ann-Marie MacDonald’s Goodnight Desdemona, (Good Morning Juliet) was fabulous. The audience loved the show with its smart writing and fun energy.  Whether the battles were with words or swords everyone was engaged in the theatrical magic. The five Ottawa actors Margo MacDonald, Pippa Leslie, Sascha Cole, Zach Counsil and Geoff McBride play numerous characters so there are lots of costumes and quick changes that keep the story moving at a fast pace.

Recently I ventured into our studio theatre to check out rehearsals of our upcoming show Goodnight Desdemona, (Good Morning Juliet) and to snap a few pictures. I was treated to some nice snippits of scenes from the show that were being rehearsed at the time. It started out with just Zach Counsil and director Ann Hodges rehearsing one scene. Because it was in the rehearsal hall, there were stand-in props and no real stage or set.

Some might say that the first day of rehearsal is similar to the first day of school. That may be true, if the first day of school requires you to sit with a group of peers and read aloud for two hours under the scrutiny of roomful of theatre lovers, including staff, stakeholders and volunteers. For the actor, the first read can be an agonizing, if sometimes delicious, experience. Everyone has waited for this day and each actor feels the approach of their first cue knowing that all in attendance have a arrived with a full compliment of expectations.
