9th Hour

I am delighted to have another opportunity to blog on GCTC's website. After our production moved into the studio this past Sunday, I came to the realization that both 9th Hour's Agnes of God and GCTC's Fly Me To The Moon feature all female casts, and are opening on the same night, this Thursday, in the same building. How cool is that? And how rare even?

9th Hour

I would first of all like to express appreciation to GCTC for giving me the opportunity to blog about our upcoming production in the studio, Agnes of God, showing November 1-10. Before I share more about the show, allow me to introduce myself and the company: my name is Jonathan Harris and I’m the founding artistic director of 9th Hour Theatre Company. 9th Hour was founded in 2009 with a mandate to creatively engage theatre in order to explore, examine, and express questions of faith and spiritual themes.

Playwright in Residence

It’s now official, I suppose, since they’ve issued the media release … Thanks to a generous grant from the Ontario Arts Council, I am the playwright in residence at GCTC.

 

What does this mean, exactly?


It does not appear to mean that I can save a little rent by camping out in the green room at the theatre – which is a pity, because it’s not a bad space at all, and the theatre’s in a great neighbourhood.

Now that our season is completely in full swing, we've started giving some thought to some additional things we can offer our patrons. After some lengthy discussion, we've come up with some great ways for our patrons to save money on shows throughout our season. The first of which you might have been privy to if you attended Urban Craft at the beginning of October. The first 500 attendees were given discounts of 20% off performances of Fly Me to the Moon in November.

Artistic

Everyone should have the opportunity to be the new kid on the block at least once in a career. I am enjoying this moment in some entirely unexpected ways. For the last ten years, I have worked as the artistic director of the Blyth Festival, situated in the heart of rural Southwestern Ontario. Life in the village is quiet – the kind of quiet that amplifies every voice on the street. It got so that I could tell who was passing outside without glancing up from the desk. In this context, the corner of Wellington West and Holland is like Times Square and Piccadilly Circus, rolled into one.

I am the new girl on the block. Funny thing that. It can be exciting, scary, challenging, fun. I count myself lucky to experience all these as a new member to the GCTC family. And I do mean family. This is an organization that has welcomed me warmly with open arms, laughter and friendship. Everyone who I have met from the Box Office to the Board has presented themselves as a tight knit family of the theatre. A family that cares for one another, looks out for each other and shares both the ups and downs that close proximity brings in spades.
