Like everyone else in the entertainment business, we at Stone Fence Theatre are uncertain what 2021 holds in store. We still hope to stage Tom Thomson & The Colours of Canada: Love, gossip and murder in Algonquin Park as soon as possible, but, because it is a large show, we may not be able to produce it in 2021. We'll know better in time.
Meanwhile, we are contemplating a number of options for smaller shows, if that's what we have to do to get through the year safely, which is our highest priority.
In the meantime, we are surviving, thanks to enormous and generous support from our sponsors and donors, who contributed enough for us to meet the many administrative expenses we had to pay in 2020 despite not being able to put on a single performance and having to refund quite a few ticket sales. THANK YOU!!!
We did keep the homefires burning in 2020.
In June, Stone Fence Theatre produced a music video called Essential Little Things, which is available on Youtube for free viewing. It provides an Ottawa Valley take on the pandemic. Please check it out and share it.
In November, we produced another music video called I'm the Law, which is taken from our 2019 mega-hit - Up at Fred's - Allons-y! and is also posted on Youtube.
And we produced a DVD of Up at Fred's - Allons-y! that features a full performance shot at the Rankin Culture and Community Centre in October, 2019, with the full cast and all your favourite songs and scenes. The price is $25, including tax and shipping, and everyone who donates $100 or more gets a DVD free.
These DVDs are the perfect holiday gift for the special Valley someone! To buy a DVD, go here. To make a charitable donation and get your complementary copy, please go here.
Thanks for sticking with us. We look forward to sharing more stories of the Valley with you, our wonderful audience!
