Obviously it was gutting when we had to make the sad decision to pull the plug, for the second year in a row, on staging a panto this year. But we will be back online with Christmas Crackers 2, featuring three brand new plays by Gabriola playwrights.
A warning that this is not a show for the kiddies. We’ll get something up on our YouTube channel for them.
We very much hope that by spring 2022 it will be back to business as normal and plan to offer the following.
The 2022 One-Act Play Festival will feature two works by local playwrights: Miracle at Elder Cedar by Wendy Phillips and an adaptation of A Divine Comedy by Anne M. Holmes, along with Working from Hideout by Jack Karp.
The Festival will be performed at the Rollo Centre June 9, 10 & 11 at 7pm and June 12 at 2pm
Back by popular demand, the play that first put the Bard in the Garden on Gabriola, Shakespeare’s delightful A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Once again you are invited to bring a chair or a blanket and a picnic. As always, 50% of ticket sales will be donated to People for a Healthy Community.
Three staged readings of A Midsummer Night’s Dream at the Commons on Friday and Saturday July 22 & 23 at 6pm (note earlier than usual start) and Sunday, July 24 at 2pm.
