Acoustic Waves

Hello everyone,

My name is Mack Johnson, and I'm the producer of the Acoustic Waves concert series here at the Irving Greenberg Theatre Centre. Music has always been an important part of my life - not just professionally in my work, but also personally. GCTC as an organization has also always been a big part of my life (I worked in the box office for seven years!), bringing great musical acts from all over the country into this wonderful space is really something of a labour of love for me.

As the daylight hours get shorter, so too, do the days left in my honeymoon phase with GCTC. I have been employing the "I'm new" response in every conceivable situation since arriving here last month, but I know that I will not be able to rely on that trick much longer. To everyone who insists upon asking me, "Well, are you settling in?" I can categorically say, no, I am not settling in. In fact, the last thing that I want to do is to settle in. Settling in implies a certain comfort that is not part of the artistic director DNA.

On Saturday Nov 17th the Great Canadian Theatre Company was buzzing with the sounds of excited Holiday shoppers, and friendly helpful artisans. More than 600 shoppers and those being dragged around by shoppers, came through the doors to view the amazing work of some 32 crafters. Vendors where set up in the upper and lower lobbies as well as the studio. Everything from specialty soaps and pashmina's to wooden growth charts and jewellery was available. If you needed a gift for someone it was here.

Ottawa Fringe Festival

I have a great job: traveling around the country, seeing great theatre, and bringing my favourites back home to Ottawa to share (also, sometimes there is free food and beer). Not to mention, of course, Ottawa's own thriving independent theatre scene, which keeps me firmly glued to theatre seats across the city week after week.  

 

Now, after weeks of keeping secrets it was great to officially launch the 2013 edition of undercurrents: theatre below the mainstream in the Fritzi Gallery last night (thanks for coming, everyone!).

Today we had the please of hosting some terrific students visiting from Queen's University. These students are part of the Artist-in-Community Education program at the Queen's Faculty of Education which focuses on arts and arts-based teaching. All the students have arts backgrounds, many at the professional level. The program aims to prepare students to be able to both teach in a classroom and to be able to be able to work in educational roles at arts agencies.

Thanks to the cast and crew of Fly Me To the Moon. Opening night was a fantastic performance filled with energy and life! The icing on the cake was the post show party hosted by one of my favorite caterers The Foodery. Chef and owner Bernard Durand excited the pallets of guests with a innovative and distinctive array of food. His staff was a fantastic group of smiling servers who blended effortlessly throughout the crowd to provide a taste of what I would call fine cuisine art!

Tonight is opening night – always an exciting evening. For us, it is the end and the beginning. It is the end of the rehearsal and production process and the beginning of the run and sharing this story and our work with the public. We start the night off with the opening of the Fritzi Gallery exhibit for the show by Nan Griffiths. Nan has read Fly me to the Moon and created art from her interpretation of the story and themes in the play.
