Upper Canada Playhouse Message to Our Audience



After cancelling its two Spring concerts, Upper Canada Playhouse is also postponing its 4-show Summer season and shifting the Spring and Summer shows to 2021. This difficult decision was made in compliance with advisories from our Health and Governmental agencies with respect to the inherent dangers of large groups attending live performances. The theatre is also cancelling its summer theatre school sessions.

We look forward to the possibility of keeping our Fall and Christmas shows on schedule at this point. We will announce any update on those shows by the end of August.

Our chief focus right now is keeping in touch with you, our audience, and letting you know what our plans are going forward. Our Box Office staff will begin calling patrons on May 4 and onward to offer a refund or gift certificate for next year’s season. We ask everyone to please be patient as we’ll be overwhelmed with calls and emails. We ask that you do not visit our Box Office in person until further notice. You can contact us by phone, email or fax ONLY.

Finally a note to our loyal audience. Our staff, actors and technicians value your support. In fact the cover of our 2020 Season Brochure says it best:

It’s all about the laughs, the stories, the music and….YOU!

In tough times the theatre has historically helped folks feel a little better. Vaudeville thrived like never before during the Great Depression. We can’t turn to theatre right now. But just imagine how great it will be when we can all enjoy live music & laughter again. And we will. You can bet on that. Pandemics are hard to get rid of. But so are theatres.

Stay Safe & Stay Tuned! We’ll be back!

Contact the Playhouse Box Office at 613-543-3713, 1-877-550-3650 or boxoffice@uppercanadaplayhouse.com.
