Opening Night September 25th at 1:30 pm

Come down to the Seaway Valley theatre on September 25th at 1:30 pm to watch Opening Night by Norm Foster

The story

Ruth Tisdale, a theatre lover, wins a pair of tickets to the opening night performance of a new play. She drags her husband Jack along with her to celebrate their 25th wedding anniversary, but he’d much rather be at home watching the seventh game of the World Series on TV. Comedy ensues as they mingle with guests in the VIP lounge, including the show’s cynical director, his needy girlfriend, and a motley assortment of actors. It all peaks with the “performance” of what’s got to be one of the worst plays ever written. A witty and fast-paced love letter to the theatre by Canada’s most produced playwright.

Advance tickets are now available online here on The Ticket Wicket or by phone at 613-933-3998. Seats will also be available at the door from one hour before curtain time. A cash bar will also be on site.
