ericaThis weekend is a very exciting weekend at Theatre Collingwood for so many reasons!  Our one-night-only production of Shirley Valentine is this Saturday, October 24th at 7:30pm at The Gayety.  We are thrilled to announce that we only have a few seats left for this show.  If you don’t have your tickets please call the office and grab one of these seats.  Robin Clipsham will play Shirley and she is wonderful in the role. 

If you would like to join us for our Red Carpet Reception with Robin, it is not too late to upgrade your tickets.  Just call the office at 705-445-2200.  When you purchase Red Carpet Tickets you are not just upgrading your experience, you are also truly contributing to an important fund raiser for Theatre Collingwood.

Also at Shirley Valentine we will be drawing for the winner of our 100 Bottles of Wine Raffle.  If you don’t have a ticket yet please come by the office or call to get yours.  Tickets are $10 each or 3 for $20.  This is just in time for the holiday season, as well as holiday gift giving.  We are also still looking for donations of wine for the draw from individuals or businesses.  If you have taken tickets out to sell please bring any unsold tickets and money in to the office by Friday at the latest.



One more exciting thing we will be doing this Saturday at the show is we will announce our 2015 Summer Theatre Festival Season!  Early Bird Subscriptions will then go on sale Monday, October 26th.  This is the very best way to get your tickets at the lowest price.  Don’t wait to order your subscriptions, and when you do please consider becoming a Member.  If you are already a Member, please consider raising your donation to a higher level this year.  We really need your help and we promise to bring you great programming and educational programs.  

Also of note: 

  • Thank you to everyone who participated in our Putting for the Arts Tournament!  We were able to raise $12,000 for Theatre Collingwood.  Special thanks to Blue Mountains Resort and Coppers Blues for their generous donations to the success of this event.
  • We have a fantastic Christmas show coming up December 17th & 18th.  Join us for Santa and Apple Cider and Leisa Way in Have Yourself a Swinging Little Country Christmas!  A great show for the whole family. 
  • Mark February 8th on your calendar for our annual Valentine’s cabaret Love Is All You Need!  You won’t believe the talent coming our way!
  • Are you like me and think that the Collingwood Federal Building could make a beautiful Arts Centre?  This iconic building seems to be wasted as a Service Canada kiosk.  If you feel the same way let your town Councillors and MP know.  I think they feel the same way!

Thanks so much!  Have a great week and I look forward to seeing you at the theatre!
