The “Stages” of Community Theatre in Almonte

Friday, 28 January 2022 via Zoom

Speaker: Kris Riendeau

Lecture Summary:

From the very first Valley Players’ production back in 1983 to the 2021 theatrical fundraiser for Puppets Up, community theatre has played a dynamic role (pun intended) in this area. On stage, backstage or in the audience — there’s a place for everyone! In this lecture, Kris Riendeau will walk you through some of the past highlights and key players, examine ways in which amateur theatre has evolved locally, and attempt to infuse you with her passion for this creative community-building tool.
