Globus Theatre Opens Sweet 16th Season!
Bobcaygeon, June, 2019 - Globus Theatre opens its sweet 16th season of professional summer theatre this month including five fabulous shows that are guaranteed to get your toes tapping, heart aching and the laughter ensuing. The season opens on June 19th at the Lakeview Arts Barn in Bobcaygeon and the final show will close on August 24th.
Globus is delighted to have an all-Canadian season bookended by two World Premieres this year, in keeping with their mandate to foster new works. Kicking off the season is a clever Italian comedy from playwright Rose Napoli called That’s Amore! and rounding out our season is the newest comedy from Globus’ own Artistic Director, Sarah Quick, the raunchy and hilarious Kama Sutra. Globus Theatre is a proud recipient of the 50/50 Applause Award from the International Centre for Women Playwrights for championing the works of female playwrights in an industry where they remain underrepresented - we are happy to continue this trend!
That’s Amore! (June 19-29) features Lynne Griffin as feisty Italian grandmother, Katerina; Katherine Cappellacci as her independent and witty granddaughter, Carina; Marcus Haccius as Carina’s playfully stubborn love interest, Michael; and Linda Goranson as his peppy (and opinionated!!) grandmother. Directed by Globus Theatre’s Artistic Director, James Barrett, the professional and charming cast will bring audiences a big fat Italian comedy about love and marriage and how the two might not be as simple as the moon hitting your eye like a big pizza pie.
More laughter is promised in July with romantic comedy, The Numbers Game (July 3-13) by John Spurway and The Great Kooshog Lake Hollis McCauley Fishing Derby (July 17-27) by audience favourite, Norm Foster.
Thanks to funding from Celebrate Ontario we will be experimenting with a brand new cabaret-style set up for Leisa Way’s Opry Gold (July 30-Aug 10). Fans of the talented Leisa Way and her Wayward Wind Band will enjoy more interaction with this grand old opry setting and will walk away humming some of the best country classics!
The season’s final show, Kama Sutra, will run from August 14th until August 24th and will be performed by Globus Theatre’s James Barrett and Sarah Quick.
