The St. Lawrence Acoustic Stage has received word that the OETIO/Morrisburg Meeting Centre is no longer able to rent their facilities to them as of the end of June, 2015.
Member of the board, Sandra Whitworth said, “As our audience, musicians and supporters know, the stage at the OETIO facility has beautiful acoustics and is uniquely suited to musical performances. We have been proud to be able to make use of it since 2007 to bring so many amazing musicians and performers to this community.
But, as the saying goes, when one door closes another one opens.”
Whitworth went on to say that when the Upper Canada Playhouse learned that the Stage was faced with the loss of its home in Morrisburg, UCP stepped up. Artistic director Donnie Bowes and the Upper Canada Playhouse board have found dates in their already very busy schedule next year so that the Stage can remain in this community and continue to present live original music in Morrisburg.
The 2015-2016 St. Lawrence Acoustic Stage lineup will be housed at Morrisburg’s fabulous Upper Canada Playhouse.
This comfortable 275 seat theatre has many of the same intimate features Stage audiences expect, in a setting designed to be inviting to audience members and performers alike.
The St. Lawrence Acoustic Stage will announce next year’s lineup as dates and performers are confirmed. For now, the Stage is delighted to have found a new and welcoming home that keeps them in South Dundas.
“Our thanks to everyone at the Upper Canada Playhouse who helped make this happen,” said Board member, Sandra Whitworth.
