During the summer months, some cities celebrate the warmer weather with outdoor performances, major musical festivals, busker attractions or alfresco movie nights. In Orillia, we celebrate with a jam-packed summer theatre season
at the Orillia Opera House. Williams and McDaniel Property Management has put together an overview of Orillia’s upcoming plays in anticipation of the 2015 summer season.
This summer, the season runs from June 25th to August 29th and features four live theatre shows, including Outlaw and The Ladies Foursome, both written by Norm Foster and directed by Jesse Collins, as well as On Golden Pond by Ernest Thompson and The Vaudevillians by Peter Colley.
The first show of the season, Outlaw, runs from June 25th to July 4th, and is followed by On Golden Pond, running from July 9th-25th. The Ladies Foursome opens on July 30th and runs until August 8th, and, the last play of the season, The Vaudevillians, runs from August 13th-29th. All shows include Thursday matinees and evening shows, as well as weekend evening shows on Fridays and Saturdays.
If you’re walking to the Orillia Opera House from Noble Towers, Era 67 (64 Mississauga Street West) is a great spot to stop for a bite before or after the show. Located less than a block away from the venue, this five-star restaurant offers patrons a classy dining experience rooted in the versatile heritage of Canada, hence its name, referring to 1867 — the year of Confederation.
Whether you’re a diehard play-lover, or a first-timer for live theatre, the summer lineup at the Orillia Opera House is sure to have you coming back for more. Different ticket pricing options (flex packages, single or group) are available for purchase here.
