Patio Theatre Festival
KAWARTHA LAKES: With Stage 2 of the Provincial Re-Opening comes an exciting new option for audiences looking for their fix of summer theatre. Due to ongoing provincial restrictions, Globus Theatre at the LAB is pivoting slightly from its original summer season plans to bring audiences a Patio Theatre Series!
Spanning from July 2nd to July 18th, this newly established patio at The Lakeview Arts Barn will host a variety of performances, from play readings to concerts and beyond!
From July 2nd to July 3rd, audiences can enjoy a play reading of Norm Foster’s Here on the Flight Path. The reading stars James Barrett, Sarah Quick, Anna Silvia-Broks and Rebecca Anne Bloom. On July 8th and 9th, the stage will showcase the world premiere of Broken Glass, a modern reimaging of the Tennesse William’s classic: The Glass Menagerie.
This play reading features live musical accompaniment and contemporary dance alongside a story of despair, resilience, and hope! Audiences can escape the heat for a night of friendly competition during Globus Theatre’s Trivia Night on July 10th. Or join in on the laughs provided by some of Canada’s greatest improvisers during the Improv Comedy All Stars! on July 18th. If concerts are more your vibe, Globus Theatre has you covered there too! Enjoy classic Beatle’s tunes performed by fan favourites The Maple Beats (Rick Johnson, Terri Crawford and Randy Read) on July 4th, or songs from the Great American Songbook sung by Leisa Way and members of the Wayward Wind Band in Happy Days are Here Again from July 15th to 17th. Of course, we couldn’t forget even the youngest audience members! For parents looking for some new kid-friendly entertainment, gather up your little ones for Globus’s Patio Theatre Series for Kids! in the mornings of July 4th, 10th and 18th.
