What better way to celebrate Canada’s 149th Birthday than enjoying an evening of true Canadian history brought to life on the outdoor stage at 4th Line Theatre?
4th Line Theatre invites you to join them on Friday, July 1st and celebrate Canada Day in 4th Line fashion. Enjoy an evening of entertainment at the Winslow Farm and enjoy the world premiere of Maja Ardal’s The Hero of Hunter Street, which tells the story of the December 1916 Quaker Oats factory explosion and fire in Peterborough that irrevocably changed the lives of local families.
To add to the festivities, July 1st is red and white night at the Farm, so in true Canadian style, wear red and white and receive a FREE ‘soft’ item from the concessions stand. This will be the first Festival Friday event at the farm which runs from 4 to 5:30 pm before the show. Come on out to celebrate Canadian history in their picturesque setting and experience an engaging presentation of regional history including an all-star cast, unforgettable musical numbers, and the sights and sounds of one of the most treasured cultural attractions in the country.
The theatre has brought the popular “Show Me Wednesdays” feature back a second year, featuring live, hands-on demonstrations and workshops led by professional arts practitioners, artisans and community members. Each demonstration and workshop will be related to themes found within the show and will take place from 4:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. on four Wednesdays this summer: July 6th; July 13th; August 10th and August 17th.
Festival Fridays are back by popular demand on Friday evenings before the show from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m. All summer long there will be offerings from local farmers and culinary partners who will have tents and booths from which to sell their products. There will be lots of ready-to-eat food available for purchase before the show. Also on Fridays, there will be a variety of talks and presentations to further enrich the 4th Line experience for audience members. Artist Talks will also take place from 4:00 to 4:30 pm, with expert presentations and demonstrations from 4:30 to 5:15 pm.
