Playhouse gives back to the community


Upper Canada Playhouse is launching its 11th annual Charity Fundraising Event which will benefit 15 area non-profit charitable organizations on a first come first served basis.

Upper Canada Playhouse has released details about this year’s Charity Fundraising Event which assists area organizations with their important work in the community. 

This marks the 11th year that The Playhouse has held this Fundraising Event which has helped over 170 local charitable organizations.  

The Playhouse will be donating all of the tickets this year to a special August 25th matinee performance of this season’s hilarious comedy, Wife Begins at Forty, to 15 area non-profit charitable organizations. 

Interested organizations are asked to submit their group’s name, mandate, contact name, phone and fax number along with a statement that declares their organization is a non-profit organization. 

Each organization receives 18 tickets and they are encouraged to sell them at The Playhouse’s regular adult price of $32 to get the maximum benefit for their organization. 

The organizations keep their ticket sale revenue for their charitable work. 

“It’s a fun and easy way for our valuable community organizations to raise some funds,” says Artistic Director Donnie Bowes. “They receive their tickets, sell them and keep the revenue for their group’s work. It’s as simple as that.” 

Selection will be on a first-come first-served basis and organizations are asked to send in their request to The Playhouse by Fax Only at 613-543-4388. Attention: Charity Event.

E-mails and phone applications cannot be accepted.
