Ottawa Theatre Challenge is Back!

The Centre for Gender & Sexual Diversity wants YOU to go to the Ottawa Theatre Challenge on March 27!

This amazing event celebrates World Theatre Day and raises funds for the Actors’ Fund of Canada (offering emergency financial aid to help entertainment professionals in Canada).

At the invitation of a Company of Fools, all theatre companies from across the region have been invited to compete in a friendly Contest of Creation in celebration of World Theatre Day. Those brave enough to participate will have only 48 hours to write, rehearse, and produce a brand-new piece of theatre based on items of inspiration provided by their fellow competitors.

Who will be crowned Ottawa’s Best Theatre Company and take home the coveted Rubber Chicken Award?

When:  Tuesday March 27th
Where:  Arts Court Studio – 2 Daly St., Second Floor
Time:  Doors at 7pm, Show at 7:30
Price:  Pay-What-You-Can Afford: Advance Tickets here or cash donations at the door

A panel of esteemed judges (including the CCGSD’s own director, Kate Smith (Skeleton Key) and the Fools’ new GM Keith Jackson) will adjudicate the performances.  Bribes are encourged and trash-talk, laughter, and silliness are sure to abound – all in the interest of dethroning last year’s champions – Suzart, taking home bragging rights as Ottawa’s Best Theatre Company for the coming year and walking away with the esteemed privilege of holding the coveted Rubber Chicken Award.

Participating companies will be announced soon. If your company would like to take on the challenge or for more information, please email today!

This event is sure to sell out fast and not to be missed!

Proceeds from ticket sales go to support The AFC (formerly the Actors’ Fund of Canada).
