NSC News – October 2021

Hello and Happy Fall!

A new season is upon us and we are excited to be gearing up for a new theatre season!  We are planning on having our first show, OPAL’s HUSBAND by John Patrick, in January 2022. 

We are working diligently to cover all Covid protocols, making sure that cast and crew are safe while rehearsing and our patrons will be safe attending.  Stay tuned for details in November’s newsletter.

September’s Radio Shows

Thanks to the super effort of our casts and crew of our September (10th & 11th) Radio Shows, MY FAVORITE HUSBAND and MY FRIEND IRMA.  Both shows were a huge success!  Everyone worked as a team and patrons really enjoyed the shows.  Congratulations to all!!

Thank you to Newmarket Mayor, John Taylor for making a special appearance at the shows!

Sad News

It is with sadness that we acknowledge the passing of former NSC member, Rick Koury this past August. For at least 10 years, Rick was very involved with the Newmarket Theatre Centre and Newmarket Stage Company.  He loved playing the ‘dame’ in pantomimes and was on the Board as President for many years.  He left the NSC when he went on to manage the Newmarket Theatre. He will be missed.

We also lost former member, Frank Johnston this past August.  Frank acted in several plays and was also Treasurer on the Board for a few years.  Our condolences to his family.

In this season of Thanksgiving, the NSC Board is most thankful for all our members, both past and present, who have supported us over the years.

We will open our doors again …..SOON!

Newmarket Stage Company is a proud member of the
Association of Community Theatres-Central Ontario (ACT-CO).

The past year has halted all theatre and our community theatre sector is doing their best to stay alive during this horrible time. Many groups have tried their best, but sadly some have had to shut down permanently.
