Behind the Scenes at Ontario’s Theatres
- We are pleased to announce that the Ontario Electronic Cigarettes Act, 2015 new regulation includes an exemption for stage productions provided the e-cigarette does not contain nicotine, and that there is no consideration for the use of the e-cigarette (i.e. product placement.) Thank you to everyone who supported this advocacy initiative.
- A tense opening night for Take Two Theatre in Timmins on November 20th: storm knocked out power, and it wasn’t restored until fifteen minutes before opening. They held the curtain briefly, and performed without a hitch to an appreciative audience.
- The Quinte West council agreed to renovations to the Old Town Hall in downtown Trenton. Building code violations had closed the second floor theatre venue used by Bay of Quinte Community Players.
