Globus Theatre creates a new patio at Arts Barn so show can go on

There will be play readings, concerts and more

By Lindsay Advocate

With Stage 2 of the Provincial Re-Opening comes an exciting new option for audiences looking for their fix of summer theatre. Because of the ongoing provincial restrictions that prevent live theatre from happening indoors, Globus Theatre at the LAB is pivoting slightly from its original summer season plans to bring audiences a patio theatre series.

Spanning from July 2-18, this newly established patio at The Lakeview Arts Barn will host a variety of performances, from play readings to concerts and beyond.

From July 2-3, audiences can enjoy a play reading of Norm Foster’s Here on the Flight Path, starring James Barrett, Sarah Quick, Anna Silvia-Broks and Rebecca Anne Bloom.

On July 8 and 9, the stage will showcase the world premiere of Broken Glass, a modern reimaging of the Tennessee William’s classic: The Glass Menagerie. This play reading features live musical accompaniment and contemporary dance alongside a story of despair, resilience, and hope!  

Audiences can escape the heat for a night of friendly competition during Globus Theatre’s Trivia Night on July 10 or join in on the laughs provided by some of Canada’s greatest improvisers during the Improv Comedy All Stars! on July 18

If concerts are more your vibe, Globus Theatre has you covered there too. Enjoy classic Beatle’s tunes performed by fan favourites The Maple Beats (Rick Johnson, Terri Crawford and Randy Read) on July 4, or songs from the Great American Songbook sung by Leisa Way and members of the Wayward Wind Band in Happy Days are Here Again from July 15-17.

Globus has not forgotten the youngest audience members, either. For parents looking for some new kid-friendly entertainment, gather up your little ones for Globus’s patio theatre series for kids on the mornings of July 4, 10 and 18.
