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.

It's May 1st today and we're rolling into the last month of our Indiegogo Capital Campaign run. Thanks to the generous donations from over 120 individuals, our campaign is almost at $10,000 now. With 19 more days left to go, there is $15, 000 more to raise and plenty of opportunities to promote the campaign.

Today is my last day at GCTC. I’m not great at goodbyes; I can’t imagine anyone being that good at them.

There was a lot of excitement this week for GCTC. Our new 13/14 Season took a long awaited launch on Monday, taking audience members by surprise and fearless attitude, starting with the sparkling wine in the mainstage theatre, followed by the bold and dazzling appearances of some of the new season stars. Curious to know who? Check out the recent blog by Eric Coates and you will know who and what's in store for our next 13/14 season at GCTC.

We launched the 2013/14 season on Monday night and we did so in style. From Nhanci Wright's opening toast to the final announcement of the night, we relished the chance to share our excitement with GCTC's audience. During twenty-seven years in theatre, I have heard many audience members say, "it looks like you're having so much fun up there." And we were. Our season launch reminded me that GCTC has an audience that is smart, inquisitive and objective. If you were not able to attend, here is what you missed: solo performances by Michael Healey, Maja Ardal and Ann-Marie MacDonald.
