Self Help


Studio Theatre productions presents « Self Help ». There’s a body in the study, a detective in the hall and a nosy reporter prowling the second floor. What are stressed out, self-help gurus Cindy and Hal Savage to do? Make out behind the bar, of course. Everything about this wacky Norm Foster comedy is larger than life could ever be.

Second rate actors who are reduced to performing at a cheap dinner theatre somewhere outside of Flin Flon, Cindy and Hal are bored and discouraged. They long for that big break that will transport them to stardom. They decide to reinvent themselves as evangelists of self-awareness, a brash and brassy duo dispensing platitudes and selling their books to the emotionally and socially disadvantaged, achieving overnight success.
But what happens when there’s trouble in paradise, when Hal and Cindy lose connection with their own, now comfortable lives? That’s where playwright Foster leaps out of his usual situation comedy and into the world of the full-blown, black-hearted and very funny farce.
Tickets: $22 at The Book Nook (cash only)

Thanksgiving Weekend
Saturday, Sunday and Monday

10 am to 5 pm.

*Admission is free*

Located within 25 kilometres of picturesque Perth, the Tour showcases one of Eastern Ontario’s finest selections of contemporary fine arts and crafts against a backdrop of Mother Nature at her best.

The real heart of the Perth Autumn Studio Tour is of course, the creative process that allows us to produce the work we love. Some studios are able to give demonstrations but many are given over to the studio tour and guest artists so this is not possible. To help you see us at work we have started a PHOTO GALLERY of the actual work process. As well, our studio links provide some preview images of the wide variety of wonderful works you will see when you join us on our tour.

Now celebrating it’s 23nd year, the Tour has added many new artisans for a total of 25 participants. Most are from the Perth area while others have been juried and invited to attend from other parts of Eastern Ontario. To minimize your driving time we’re presenting our works in 6 different rural studios clustered near Perth in very accessible and beautiful locations. There are demonstrations at many of the studio stops, and several feature outstanding garden walks.

Help us celebrate over 20 years being one of Ontario’s most prestigious studio tours!

Jewellery, etchings, canoes, pottery, furniture, stone sculpture, and wood carvings are only a few of the media you will see on the tour. Start at any location number, the routes are well marked. Besides the map provided, there are several important pieces of information on the details page.

The Perth Autumn Studio Tour is a very special showcase for contemporary fine crafts. In 1999 this extraordinary group of artisans was awarded a grant by the Ontario Arts Council in recognition of the high standard of work presented over the previous ten years. It was the only studio tour in Ontario to receive such an award.
