Last fall’s inaugural Great Canadian Theatre Company Bike-A-Thon was such a huge success that it has become an annual fundraising event. This time riders had a choice of two routes. Both groups started off from the theatre on Wellington St W and followed bike paths along either side of the Ottawa River. The 18km ride I led crossed the Island Park Drive bridge to Quebec, then back over the Alexandria Bridge, before heading back along the river towards the theatre.

Playwright in Residence
Sean Devine's picture

As the new playwright-in-residence here at GCTC, developing a new work which centers on the famed Franklin Expedition, it was with just a wee bit of excitement that I turned on the news a few weeks ago to learn that one of the lost ships had in fact been discovered on the cold seabed of the Northwest Passage. As a playwright whose previous works have focused on obscure but pivotal moments in human history, it’s rewarding to learn that the subject of my fascination has just entered the realm of national relevance.

Fritzi Gallery

This September, the Fritzi is glad to welcome to the space local artists Josée Prud'homme and Joejene Santos. They are artists that have a great passion for what they do and what they create.  Both working with abstract forms, their works are landscapes of shape, movement and textures. Exploring themes from Emil Sher's The Boy in the Moon, the artwork asks the viewer to look for deeper meanings, for layers, new interpretations and new truths.

Hello everyone! GCTC has a long history of providing our audiences with an opportunity to discuss what they have seen on stage or what they are about experience in the theatre. It is part community outreach, part education and always informative. It is a long standing tradition that I’m happy to say continues as we open the 2014-15 season with the World Premiere of The Boy in the Moon.

Hello,

I am very proud to be able to say that I have been involved with GCTC for 14 of those 40 seasons. It is great to be back from summer and into production with The Boy in the Moon. A beautiful story about unconditional love, life and what it is like to be human. Don't miss this heart warming story.

This morning we had our first read for our first play of the 2014-15 season, The Boy in the Moon. The “first read” traditionally signals the first day of rehearsals for a play in our studio theatre and commences with presentations by designers on how the show will look and feel, and then concludes with the cast reading the script from beginning to end. Because of the strong visual nature of this piece, the director, our very own Artistic Director Eric Coates, decided to change things up a bit.
