Popular local performance group, the North Grenville Community Theatre, is putting on a series of performances in support of non-profit organizations. The so-called “Romance on the Road series” is intended to raise funds for local non-profits.
This year, the performance is called “Romance on the Road: The Many Faces of Love”. The performance’s director is NGCT’s vice president Darrell Nunn. He shared a glimpse of the program for the upcoming series. The introduction reads:
“Whatever your personal life journey has been, it’s likely that you have encountered at least some of love’s many faces: euphoria, lust, disappointment, rediscovery, contentment, and, with any luck, a growing wisdom resulting from reflections on these events in your life’s journey. And love features in so many classic stories we have encountered in myths, fairy tales, the theatre – and Netflix!. [These] three short plays are comedies that explore the foibles of this emotion. They are larger than life. Let me say again: they are COMEDIES. Laugh, even when some of the humour is dark.”
Four performances will take place at:
- Pierce’s Corners Community Hall in Pierce’s Corners on April 13 at 7 pm.
- St. James Anglican Church in Kemptville on April 21 at 7 pm and April 22 at 2 pm.
- St. Paul’s Anglican Church in Osgoode on April 23 at 2 pm.
Darrell explained more about the significance of the concert series. “During COVID when we at North Grenville Community Theatre were not sure if or when we would perform again, we rehearsed two half-hour, small-cast comedies in members’ homes,” he explained. “We then offered them to local charitable venues to see whether they wanted us to perform there in the spring of 2022. They would sell tickets and reap whatever profits. This project was very positively received, so we decided to offer such a program again this year.
