STONE FENCE THEATRE IN 2020:
ORIGINAL CANADIAN MUSICAL THEATRE
Up at Fred's - Allons-y!
Show returns by popular demand in October
For fifty years or so, "Fred's" - the Hotel Chapeau in Chapeau, Quebec - was the destination of choice
Up at Fred's - Allons-y! is a musical trip back in time that tells the story of Fred Meilleur, his family, his guests, and the remarkable Ottawa River hotel. It features an all-star cast and is sure to bring back happy memories - or introduce you to a very special place in Valley lore.
This is definitely Stone Fence Theatre's most popular show ever. We had planned to bring it back in May for four performances and have sold quite a few tickets. The COVID-19 crisis forced us to postpone these performances from May, when we had planned, to October 23-25 at the Rankin Culture and Community Centre. Those with tickets for the May shows will be offered refunds or exchanges.

Tom Thomson & The Colours of Canada
A musical,in ragtime, about Canada's most famous artist and one of the Ottawa Valley's most famous stories
In 2020, the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Group of Seven, Stone Fence Theatre premiers a new musical, in ragtime, about Canada's most famous artist, Tom Thomson, who brought the Group together, his mysterious death in 1917, and his presumed fiancee, Winnifred Trainor, of Huntsville. The action takes place in Algonquin Park, so it's another great Ottawa Valley story. The play is written and will be musically directed by Ish Theilheimer. Chantal Elie-Sernoskie is Director. Peter Brown has worked with Ish on the music, which is based on classic ragtime, the style of the day. An outstanding cast of terrific singers, with an all-star band including Peter Borwn on keys, Gord Tapp on trumpet, and Bill Pinkerton on drums is getting ready to bring this most-famous Canadian mystery to life.
Due to the pandemic, the show has been postponed until 2021.
