HAPPY NEW YEAR 2021, THEATRE FRIENDS!

If you were like me you opened up the back door of your house and swept that old 2020 year right out at midnight on New Year’s Eve, and then ran to open the front door to welcome 2021 in! This tradition has come down in our family from my grandmother, Helen Haggerty, an Irish woman who did not mess around when it came to superstitions and traditions!

This past year has had some incredible highs and some very low, lows, but through it all we have come to realize, at Theatre Collingwood, what incredible support we have from our audience members and from our corporate and personal donors. Thank you all so much for this.

In our effort to acknowledge this past year, our arts community, and our members and donors, we have created an electronic 2020 Commemorative Brochure. This brochure is a collection of interesting contributions from our various arts & culture friends, some reflections on the year, as well as recognition of our shows and our corporate partners. When you read some of the advertisements you may notice events that sadly never happened, however we want to recognize the visionaries in our community and we look forward to when such events can take place again. Please take the time to read this brochure and share it with friends, and then consider the many companies who continue to support us when you are making future purchases. This is OUR community.

We hope that you enjoy our efforts and we look forward to celebrating 2021 with you. ENJOY!

We’ve Moved Our Office

Thank you so much to Katherine Huycke for making this beautiful sign for our new office! We love it!

We are working hard to get settled and will reopen on September 1st at 150 St. Paul St., Suite 201.😀

HOW CAN I HELP?

Dear Theatre Lovers,

We don’t have to tell you what a difficult time this is for live theatre around the world.  You get it. Theatre companies, artists, and musicians are all struggling with no income and no “end” date to the situation.  The ARTS as a whole is what feeds our souls. The good news is that we know from history that artists come back after disasters, stronger and more creative than ever.  At Theatre Collingwood we are celebrating our 36th Anniversary this year and we look forward to when we can entertain you once again! In the meantime, if you are looking for a way to help us, here are a few suggestions:

1) Please do not cancel your tickets but rather consider turning the dollar amount into a 2020 tax receiptable donation.

2) Consider making a donation or, if you have not already done so, to become a Theatre Collingwood Member.  Any amount/level will be greatly appreciated.

3) If you do not want to donate your ticket value to Theatre Collingwood please consider leaving it in your TC account as a credit for 2021.

4) Buy Gift Certificates that may be used for any future shows.  This could be for yourself or for someone else as a way to say I’m thinking of youThank youHappy Birthday or Merry Christmas!

Theatre Collingwood is monitoring the on-going Covid-19 situation.  Feel free to book an appointment to visit our new Box Office at 150 St. Paul Street (please wear a mask) or if you have any questions please email us at info@theatrecollingwood.ca or call 705-445-2200.   We look forward to when we can enjoy a live performance with you again.  Thank you for your understanding and support.
