Yesterday GCTC (along with the rest of the world) celebrated Halloween. There were an abundance of colourful costumes (nobody really went the spooky route) and fun activities. Best of all the activities was the pumpkin carving contest! The staff was split up into four teams and each team came up with their own design for their pumpkin. You can see some of the carving and the finished pumpkins below.

In the play that is touching our audiences right now called You Fancy Yourself,  Maja  Ardal shows us what it’s like to try and adapt to a new country, a new culture and new people. Told through the eyes of a child whose family moves from Iceland to Scotland, the struggles to fit in are sometimes hilarious and sometimes heart breaking. Although the story is a true one it takes on a whole new meaning when it is told by other women.

So by now you've probably seen You Fancy Yourself at least twice, so you know exactly what the reviews are talking about, right? NO? Well clearly you've been missing out on what people have been saying. You Fancy Yourself opened on October 17 and the great reviews started rolling in almost immediately!

It’s been nice to see family and children at GCTC recently! Historically, dramatic cutting-edge contemporary Canadian theatre is not always conducive to ‘happy-theatre family time’ but, for the first time in years, GCTC is working with 2 local children’s theatre companies to help produce and promote a Children’s Sunday Series in our Studio Theatre at the Irving Greenberg Theatre Centre, running regularly throughout our 2013 - 14 Season on select ... Sundays.

I'm An Acadian-Canadian, Eh!
Jeanette Arsenault's picture

“A poignant, humorous tribute to my rich Acadian heritage through storytelling & song.”

 

I am going back to my roots.  My musical upbringing was the amazing fiddle-playing soundscape of my Acadian relatives from Prince Edward Island where I spent the summers of my youth.

 

I took it for granted that all families had those kinds of musical parties. I have come to appreciate just how lucky I was to have such a rich musical childhood that impassioned my love, not only for the music but for the Acadian culture as well.

It seems like every time my name comes up in the blogging rotation, I write about how things are busy at GCTC currently. Well, it’s no different this time as we’re heading into our third consecutive weekend of special events (in addition to Proud coming to the end of its run of sold out shows). So yes, it’s a busy time at GCTC!

As Culture Days sweeps across the country Ottawa is offering up hundreds of FREE activities for families, adults, seniors and kids. If you have children between the ages of 6-12, GCTC should be first on your list of events to check out! If your child longs for the stage or if they are shy and reserved, theatre may be something to introduce them to. What better way for a kid to learn about live theatre than by attending an acting workshop taught by talented and dedicated senior students from the OYP Theatre School.

Most of the conversations I have these days begin with my response to a statement that goes something like this: “You must be happy with Proud.” Let’s cut to the chase and say that “happy” is vast understatement. I am thrilled – and not just because the production is selling like hotcakes. I am thrilled because people across the spectrum are paying attention. The mainstream media, notorious for its dwindling interest in theatre, devoted an unprecedented amount of airtime and column space to the show prior to opening night. And once it did open, the reviews came fast, furious and positive.
