Chez MainLine, 12/21

Il y a moins d’un mois, le Théâtre MainLine a lancé une campagne de financement d’urgence, avec un but qui semblait impossible à rejoindre: 15000$ en trois semaines. Aujourd’hui, je suis fier d’annoncer que la générosité incroyable de notre communauté nous a permis non seulement d’atteindre notre but, mais de le surpasser en temps record. La fin du mois est encore loin, et nous avons reçu la somme étonnante de 20000$!

An Urgent Plea from MainLine Theatre

In 2005 we received a grant from the Canada Council to produce Johnny Canuck and the Last Burlesque in our own space. We decided to make a home for emerging artists, seasoned ones too, and perhaps most importantly, for the spirit of the Fringe to live on throughout the year...

We few, we lucky few. We who were chosen in the Fringe lottery shall rejoice and revel in Fate's good graces. E'en admist our merriment we shall shed a woeful tear for those who suffered the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune and found themselves on the acursed Waiting list with naught to do but hope until the last syllable of recorded time that they too will strut and fret their hour upon the stage.
-William Shakespeare (sort of)

Now that I've seen Interim General Manager Al Lafrance get robbed of wrestling glory by the dirty, cheating Jiant Tyger in a no holds barred Battle Royale last week, it's finally official: I have now seen everything. Which coincidently is not unlike our MainLine programming for the next couple of weeks....EVERYTHING. We got so much going on you may want to move in here for a while. Let's get started with...

I must confess, I spent more of my early adolesence then I care to admit, sitting in different rep theatres on Saturday nights yelling clever retorts to hapless hunchbacks, sweet transvestites and neckless narrators. 30 years after I first pelted people with rice and toast at the Seville theatre, I finally have the pleasure of co-producing the live stage version of the ultimate cult classic and I am simply shivering with ANTICI....

A big thank you to all who came out to help celebrate our seventh anniversary. I myself was unable to stay and party as much as I would have wanted to but I have spent the last three days lost in a Neo citron and Nyquil enduced haze. Hopefully all the phlegm will clear up in time for this week's shows because they are going to be AWESOME!
