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.

We are delighted to welcome Sean Devine to GCTC as playwright-in-residence, supported by the Canada Council for the Arts. From September 2014 through February, Sean will be developing his new work Glacier, a political and historical ‘ghost story’ set on an ice shelf in the Canadian Arctic. Recently arrived from Vancouver, Sean is a playwright, producer, actor, and co-artistic director of Horseshoes & Hand Grenades Theatre, Ottawa’s newest theatre company.

Well, they’ve been very kind to me, more than the obvious: ‘Yippee I got work in the season’ kind too. Just very generally good and kind.

 

For instance, when my family was contemplating our move to Ottawa I wrote to a couple of theatres to find out what was going on in the city and where, if anywhere, I might find work. The only person who replied was Lise Ann Johnson at the GCTC. She offered to meet with me in person and we spent some time chatting about the theatrical landscape of Ottawa. Nice, eh?

It has been a very full season for me of productions and festivals in Ottawa and Calgary but now that GCTC's final show, George F. Walker's The Burden of Self Awareness, is closed I can more fully focus on the 2nd Annual Bike-A-Thon FunRaiser.

 

Compared to last year we got started much earlier with the planning and organizing of this event.
