Happy 2013 from the Great Canadian Theatre Company! Today everyone returned from their well-deserved holidays with stories about relaxing, stressing, travelling, being with family, getting sick and all sorts of other tales. The time off was great, but everyone is thrilled to be back in the theatre getting back to what we love to do.

Halfway there. 3 down, 3 to go. We have hit our mid-season break here at GCTC but business is business as usual. Every year around this time GCTC offers a special on tickets. We offer or Holiday "Evergreen" pass that gets you 2 tickets to any performance of any remaining play in our 2012-2013 season. This is available through the box office at a discounted rate.

There's nothing like intensive production meetings, whiteboard markers, post-it notes and 20 message email streams to compliment a cup of mulled apple cider and a glowing holiday fire. ...... Oh wait. It's the season for undercurrents: theatre below the mainstream planning, my friends! Pat Gauthier and I have been hard at work in the confines of the GCTC Holiday Workshop (aka Administration Offices) preparing for the hottest theatre during for the coldest time of the year in our fair city.

On Thursday November 29th bus number 5931 was parked in front of the Irving Greenberg Theatre Centre not such an unusual site you say.

It was definitely a huge hit at opening night of the play now running at the GCTC called The Number 14.
