The Fritzi Gallery, located on the second floor of the Great  Canadian Theatre Company, is unique in the way it curates it art.  Run by Don Monet of the Cube Gallery, it engages the artist to interact with the current play.  The artist reads the script, sometimes attends rehearsals, and puts together a show that resonates with the theme of the production.  Currently, Paula Mitas Zoubek is the curator.

September is an exciting time to be working at the Great Canadian Theatre Company right now. It's a month that's only six days old and has already seen the 1 year anniversary of our buddies at Urban Craft, and there's lots more to come! We've got the beginning of our 2012-13 season with the opening of The Secret Mask (a terrific, heartwarming show, with a great dose of humour). Our new Artistic Director, Eric Coates will be starting in September also.

Sunday was the annual National Capital Pride parade, the end of a week of celebrations of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans communities. As outreach manager here at GCTC  this is an event that I would not miss, with an estimated 30,000 people not only watching the parade but later gathering at Festival Plaza to get information on goods and services available to the “queer” community and of course theatre is a big part of that.

As the summer shortens, so does our season prep to do list. Time now to transition into "show mode". New staff have been hired, volunteers have been signed up, floors have been waxed, walls were painted, subscriptions have been renewed, ticket envelopes are stuffed and everyone is eagerly awaiting that first night when the curtain rises and the lights dim on the new season.

It's back to school at GCTC. On Tuesday, our production crew rouse from their midsummer languor and join us back at the Irving Greenberg Theatre Centre for our upcoming 2012/2013 GCTC Season. Hugs were given, tears were shed, epic stories of love and loss were told; it was a lengthy 5 weeks.

On the extremely hot long weekend, GCTC had decided that they wanted to participate in the Rideau Canal Festival and have a boat in the Flotilla of Lights on Saturday Night and the Sunday Floatilla, the main event. New banners were created and printed, decorations decided on and purchased, and now the challenge of not only finding a boat but a captain to drive it. We were lucky enough to meet Bill Joliffe, a GCTC member with his wife and the owner of the “Unbelievable” who agreed to represent GCTC.
