BOBCAYGEON: Globus Theatre is delighted to announce the 2021 Summer Season. From May 20th to September 4th, Globus Theatre will offer guaranteed crowd-pleasers as well as new and exciting Canadian works. The Summer Season has been extended from 10 weeks to 16 due to the limited audience capacity. COVID-19 measures are in place, and Globus Theatre welcomes patrons to join our safe and social live events at the Lakeview Arts Barn.
Firstly, after hearing how much audiences loved our reading series in 2020, Globus Theatre has sprinkled in a couple of play readings throughout the season. On May 20th, Ellen Denny (co-creator of our recent outdoor show, February: A Love Story) brings her new play, Pleasureville. A story about Leah, a city gal, who moves to a small town and opens a sex shop, of course! On June 11th and 12th Armon Ghaeinizadeh and Justine Christensen bring Broken Glass, a modern reimagining of Tennessee William’s The Glass Menagerie with live musical accompaniment.
Globus Theatre kicks off the season with audience favourite Leisa Way and her Wayward Wind Band! This year, Leisa Way brings us a concert that celebrates Gordon Lightfoot’s legend, Early Morning Rain. Audiences can enjoy the hits of one of Canada’s greatest ever singer-songwriters from May 25th to June 5th.
Another Globus Theatre audience favourite joins us in 2021. Norm Foster’s Here on the Flight Path follows John Cummings, who has three very different women as neighbours over the course of three years. As he interacts with them on the balcony of his apartment each, has a unique impact on his life. Globus Theatre’s Artistic Director, Sarah Quick and Artistic Producer, James Barrett, star in what has been described as Norm Foster’s funniest play from June 16th to July 3rd.
The Three Men are back! Globus audiences will remember the award-winning Three Men in a Boat in the Summer of 2015. This year, the very same hapless trio gets caught up in the Great European Bicycling Craze in Three Men on a Bike. Starring David Difrancesco, Matt Pilipiak and Victor Pokinko, this disastrous biking trip full of shenanigans run from July 6th to July 17th.
Globus Theatre has a new murder mystery coming out this summer for all the detective wannabes out there! The Great Cottage Catastrophe is about the killer real estate market in the idyllic town of Doncaygeon. Bidding wars are turning cottage country into a battleground. When a body turns up, it appears that someone has paid the ultimate price. An interactive show that allows you to solve the mystery plays from July 21st to August 7th.
The loveable Brit and audience favourite is back, Shirley Valentine by Willy Russell. In a recent survey, patrons voted this show as one of their most treasured moments at Globus Theatre. It’s the perfect show to bring back to the stage when we all long for some inspiration and hope. A must-see for anyone who’s recently started talking to the wall! It is starring Sarah Quick and running from August 11th to August 28th.
As the season closer, Globus Theatre welcomes Gabi Epstein to the stage. Gabi Epstein, multi-award-winning stage and cabaret performer, shares her journey of self-discovery through reimagined versions of her idol Barbra Streisand’s greatest hits. Gabs Sings Babs reminds us to remain true to ourselves by celebrating, not hiding from what makes us truly unique. On stage from September 1st to September 4th.
Artistic Director, Sarah Quick says, “Great consideration was afforded to what we could produce safely. Our mini-seasons in the latter half of last year provided an excellent learning experience as to how best to provide quality entertainment in a safe setting. We are continuing with our limited audiences of 50. This means that even if allowed to open to higher numbers as the summer progresses, we will not. Booking now means you can be assured you will be distanced from your fellow theatre lovers regardless of a loosening in restrictions and you get an exclusive VIP feel with every show!”
Tickets will go on sale on April 6th for Donors and April 8th for the General Public. Tickets can be booked by calling the box office at 705-738-2037.
