Our fearless Artistic Director Eric Coates is everywhere lately. Besides being a general fixture of the Ottawa arts scene, Eric gets around the media circles too. Posted on the weekend, Eric conducted an interview with Jim Murchison of the Charlebois Post Canada. For anyone wanting to know more about Eric, where the "Fearless" theme came from, how the bee ties into GCTC and much more, check out this article (link below).

Yesterday morning bright and early I headed down to Arts Court for the media launch of the 2013 Ottawa Fringe Festival line-up. If you think there is nothing going on in this city, boy you could not be more wrong; the line up for this year is nothing short of fabulous. But I skip ahead. Before you even enter the upstairs theatre lobby you passed yoga with Sarah Lotus Blossom who will be part of Fringe with Occupy Me. Ok this is the fringe.

Box Office

With the unveiling of Eric Coates' new 2013-2014 season, the box office has been operating at full capacity to keep up with the demand for tickets and subscriptions to this exciting new season. Imagine, Ann-Marie MacDonald and Mary Walsh in the same year! Audiences won't be disappointed with this line up, and GCTC won't either with the amount of people we will see through our doors next year. But let's get through the summer first, and mourn the first round NHL playoff exit of our beloved Toronto Maple Leafs (sigh).

Hello,

We are very fortunate to have such an amazing law community in Ottawa. They are true community leaders and committed to making a positive difference in our city. For 14 years GCTC has been partnering with the County of Carleton Law Association to produce the lawyer play fundraiser. The funds raised go to benefit two charities – GCTC and another charity of the lawyers choosing. The play this year was The Best Man by Gore Vidal and it was another fun and successful event. The other charity to receive support was the Youth Services Bureau.

There are a few sure signs of spring in Hintonburg: the opening of the patio at the Royal Oak; construction on Holland Avenue; flowers at the Parkdale Market. Another: the GCTC is filled – PACKED – with lawyers.

In case you aren’t aware: every year, 20 (or more) members of Ottawa’s legal community come together to raise money for GCTC and a partner charity (this year was Youth Services Bureau of Ottawa). They donate their time and energy into selling tickets, sponsorships, and of course, attending rehearsals.

Well opening night has finally happened, and I can’t believe the Lawyer Play experience is coming to an end.  After countless hours of rehearsals plus line runs, costume fittings and tech days that turn into tech nights we finally have a show (and a pretty stellar one at that!).

Tonight is the night! Tonight is the first official performance of the CCLA/GCTC 14th annual Lawyer Play. Ask anyone around the office, any of the actors/lawyers, designers, or anyone else involved in it, and they'll tell you that this work really is a labour of love. Every year the legal community and the theatre community work their collective butts off and come together to put together a show to entertain, enrich, and raise some money for some great causes (this year our charity partner is Youth Services Bureau of Ottawa).

Beside the mainfloor entry to our theatre there is a large display with the names of people who contributed to the capital campaign for GCTC's original home at 910 Gladstone. Interestingly, the photo on this display is an image of the former facade, complete with a marquee that advertises the Magnetic North Theatre Festival. I suspect that the photo was taken circa 2003. Ottawa has a lot of theatre going on at any given time.
