Over the river and through the woods

6

The Grandmother of all comedies. A warm-hearted story about family, faith, and food.

Nick Cristano is a single, 29-year-old and has just been offered his dream job, but not in the same town as his grandparents. His grandparents, whom he has had Sunday dinner with every week of his life, did not take the news so well. After all, family is the center and the heart of life they say. With his parents and older sister having already moved away, the grandparents get creative to keep Nick in town. Outrageous plans are hatched, hilarious games are played, a blind-date is arranged, and stories are told; resulting in a hilarious situation taken to an extreme that can be shared and cherished by any family. This show is guaranteed to make you love your family all over again this Christmas season.

10th Annual Dorothy Griffith Memorial Golf Tournament

14

 

This August 10, 2016 the Perth and District Chamber of Commerce will be hosting the 10th Annual Dorothy Griffith Memorial Golf Tournament at the Perth Golf Course. This tournament is a huge attraction for the business community. The day includes 18 holes of golf with fun games streamed throughout the links, and participants then head back to the club house for a great dinner packed with prizes and a silent auction.
 
In 2007 the Perth & District Chamber of Commerce lost one of our most active members and avid volunteers. Over the years Dorothy Griffith’s name became synonymous with the Perth & District Chamber of Commerce. Rarely did Dorothy miss a Chamber event or function. Many of you will remember Dorothy as the score keeper for the Chamber’s Annual Golf Tournament, the first face you’d see when arriving at the Chamber’s Annual Dinner, AGM or Christmas Social, or the generous and giving person who could be called upon to lend a helping hand at any time. This year marks the 10th Annual Dorothy Griffith Memorial Tournament which was renamed to honor what a wonderful person Dorothy was and the huge impact she had on our chamber and it members.

Barndoor Theater : Ghost Stories

BarnDoor Theatre Presents: “Ghost Stories”!

11

GHOST STORIES

The Legend of Oliver’s Landing

A musical chiller
by David Jacklin

August 5-21

Ghost Stories is a full-on, Broadway-style musical, all based on a local legend.  It has been a huge success in numerous previous productions:

In 1833, John Oliver and his wife were making a comfortable living ferrying travellers across Big Rideau Lake at a place people called,  naturally enough, Oliver’s Landing. They were both murdered in a dispute involving a Native woman and their dead son. When the cabin was torn down, years later, a “large number” of skeletons were found in the basement.  David Jacklin has turned this local legend into a chilling, soaring piece of musical theatre, dramatic, funny and filled with exciting music.  A major hit in 1984 and 1992, it has been revamped for 2016 with some new music and an exciting new libretto.

A New Musical by Grant Tilly – Directed by C.Lee Bates

Lucky charms, big dreams and a troll named Thor. It’s Friday night at the bingo hall and the gloves are off! Carol needs to pay off her debts. Sandi’s hot for Lou, the rock n’ roll bingo caller.  And there’s Irene, the cranky old know-it-all, oxygen tank in tow, who always wins. When Carol steals Irene’s lucky spot, it sets off a course of events that none of them could have predicted. A brand new musical about friendship, gambling and just how far you’ll go for the big win.

Bingo Ladies is co-production of Studio Theatre and Indie Women Production.  This is a charity event in support of the Jillian O’Conner Children’s Education Fund. There will be a silent auction and other fun event in the theatre lobby at each performance.
