Charles and I wish you all the best of the holiday season, and we thank you for your support this year.
Watching a live performance, or enrolling in a class and performing for an audience are memories that stay with people for a lifetime. Consider giving the gift of a lifetime memory this year - take a loved one to see A Christmas Carol, the musical, or enrol a young person in our Little Stars or Stage Right acting class, or give them the experience of being in a major musical with our Musical Theatre Class.
Tickets for A Christmas Carol include special pricing for Seniors, Students and Children. Balcony seating is at a special rate, and the Saturday matinee is priced to favour families. The show opens soon - December 17 (Thursday) and runs for four performances over three days, closing Saturday December 19. You can get tickets from the Grand Theatre box office in person (noon - 6pm), by phone 613-530-2050, or online here: http://kingstongrand.ca/node/1940
The Winter Term of our Stage Right Acting Classes begins Jan 9 (first week back to school!) on Saturdays. We offer classes for young people ranging in age from 6-17. http://www.bottletreeinc.com/acting_classes.htmlOur popular Musical Theatre course is offered in January and begins Jan 4. This year's project is SHREK the Musical JR. This is a musical theatre intensive, designed to give your child a taste of what being in a full-scale production is like. Everyone enrolled in the class takes on at least two roles (one major role and at least one minor). Training is second-to-none as we bring in top vocal coaches and choreographers, as well as excellent direction and support. http://www.bottletreeinc.com/musical_theatre_class.html
We want you to know that we are independant artists, active in the greater community, teaching performance arts, producing our own new work, and presenting community theatre shows as part of our arts practise. Every time you buy a ticket to one of Bottle Tree Productions' shows or enrol in one of our classes, you are directly supporting artists - not only us, but local musicians, actors, and directors. This is a rare feat in an industry that favours paying administrators instead of artists. So thank you.
Best wishes of the season - and thank you again for supporting local artists!
Anne Marie & Charles
