Love speaks again this February, when Theatre 3x60 returns to Sunnybrae Golf Club to share Valentine’s Day, and a love of theatre, with an evening of dinner and live performances, savouring the surprises of love and relationships.
Last year’s inaugural event was a sold out success, and Love Speaks Again! promises to be another special evening of dining and entertainment. Start the evening with a complimentary glass of champagne and a perusal of the silent auction tables for that special Valentine’s gift, then your host, emcee Johnny Soln, will invite you to enjoy a plated dinner, specially prepared by Sunnybrae’s Chef Basil. The evening is completed with dessert and coffee, as Theatre 3x60 performs an entertaining selection of love related readings and songs.
All proceeds from 'When Love Speaks' will benefit Theatre 3x60 and its programs, including the annual school and community tour, which, since 2013, has brought socially relevant Canadian theatre to over 2,500 Durham students and residents. Theatre 3x60 is committed to enriching lives through theatre, on and offstage, with increased accessibility, education, audience engagement and the development of new theatre work and artists.
In 2016: Theatre 3x60 provided mentorship to local community and school theatre productions; made tickets to local productions available to students, through its Save a Seat Program; and launched the first season of Port Perry Summer Theatre, at Town Hall 1873, which included the first Durham Minifest educational play festival.
Show your love for theatre in Durham; support Theatre 3x60 and enjoy a very special Valentine’s celebration with Love Speaks Again!

UXBRIDGE: The Uxbridge Secondary School Dramatic Arts Department is putting on a production of Louisa May Alcott’s Little Women, starting next week.
Come out to support the dedicated students of Uxbridge Secondary School, and experience the wonder of Louisa May Alcott’s world. Shows are Jan 17th, 18th, 19th, 20th and 21st. Doors open at 6:30 p.m., curtain at 7:00 p.m. Tickets are $10, and will be available at the door.
The play follows the lives of the four March girls: romantic Meg, shy and musical Beth, willful and artistic Amy, and, of course, passionate and fiery Jo, and their journey to adulthood, set against the backdrop of the American Civil War. These four young daughters of a Union army chaplain find their lives touched by love and loss, as they struggle to help their kind-hearted mother make ends meet. Together the March family learns to endure both good times and bad, as they share the joys and pains of growing up.
Little Women was first published on September 30th, 1868, and was based on the author’s own experiences as a child in Concord, Massachusetts, with her sisters. The version of the story, in this production, incorporates many of the real life historical characters, that peopled Alcott’s childhood and helped to shape the events and perspectives of her novel.
