Culture Days Guelph 2017


YOUR turn to entertain US!

We're hoping you will come and join us for some "Culture Hub, Maker's Market" fun at City Hall Saturday September 30, 10am-2:00pm.

Come celebrate Culture Days, puppet-style!

Pandora, Prometheus and the gang will be on hand.

A Makers Market? Hmmm.

"Hey Prometheus, why don't we bring some props, a puppet stage and some spare puppets. Maybe you and Pandora could share some puppet secrets regarding what makes for a really good puppet show? At Maker's Market everyone can make theatre. How's that sound?"

"Sounds spectacular Jay!"

We Must Have More Men: Barrie and The Great War.

The team at Barrie's Theatre By The Bay have done a masterful job creating "We Must Have More Men Barrie and the Great War".

A cliche, yes, but the phrase back by popular demand is apt. For that's just it you see, We Must Have More Men is back!

Christmas 2017

Isn't That The Dickens! A re-telling of Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol.

This "Theatre-of-the-mind" piece is a wonderful way to welcome the Christmas spirit at your special event.

Performed live with a myriad of atmospheric sound-effects, Dicken's  "A Christmas Carol" is performed as an original 8 minute poem.

You can give a listen, but as I said, it is a treat to see this performed live right before your eyes!

Looking for something longer than 8 minutes? Invite us to come and perform "The Christmas Variety Show": Puppets, Christmas sing-a-longs and Christmas stories. Book now! 519 820-3269

More Live Theatre

Acting up!
If you want to see Prometheus, Pandora and the others just ask. Meanwhile...

Summer 2017 I had the pleasure of writing and producing a play, Guelph In Postcards - the McCrae Years for the Guelph Museum.

Autumn 2017 I return to Theatre By The Bay to re-create the role of Mr. Boys in We Must Have More Men - The Story of Barrie During The Great War  

Project-To-Project Theatre keeps me busy writing The William Harvey Story. Ever the wishful thinker, I'd love to see it go into production sometime during 2018/19.

More news to follow!
