Globus Theatre Optimistically Planning For 2021 Summer Season

KAWARTHA LAKES-The show must go on and Globus Theatre has announced it will doing just that for the 2021 Summer Season.

From May 20th to September 4th, Globus Theatre will offer guaranteed crowd pleasers as well as new and exciting Canadian works. The Summer Season has been extended from 10 weeks to 16 due to the limited audience capacity. COVID-19 measures will be in place and Globus Theatre is welcoming patrons to join safe and social live events at the Lakeview Arts Barn near Bobcaygeon.


Globus Theatre kicks off the season with audience favouriteLeisa Way and her Wayward Wind Band! This year, Leisa Way brings us a concert that celebrates the legend of Gordon Lightfoot – Early Morning Rain. Audiences can enjoy the hits of one of Canada’s greatest ever singer-songwriters from May 25th – June 5th.

Another Globus Theatre audience favourite joins us in 2021… Norm Foster’s Here on the Flight Path follows John Cummings who, over the course of three years, has three very different women as neighbours. As he interacts with them on the balcony of his apartment each have a unique impact on his life. Globus Theatre’s Artistic Director, Sarah Quick and Artistic Producer, James Barrett, star in what has been described as Norm Foster’s funniest play from June 16th – July 3rd.

The Three Men are back! Globus audiences will remember the award-winning Three Men in a Boat in the Summer of 2015. This year, the very same hapless trio get caught up in the Great European Bicycling Craze in Three Men on a Bike.  Starring David DifrancescoMatt Pilipiak and Victor Pokinko, this disastrous biking trip full of shenanigans runs from July 6th – July 17th.

For all the detective wannabes out there, Globus Theatre has a new murder mystery coming out this summer! The Great Cottage Catastrophe is about the killer real estate market in the idyllic town of Doncaygeon. Bidding wars are turning cottage country into a battleground…and when a body turns up it appears that someone has paid the ultimate price. An interactive show that allows you to solve the mystery plays from July 21st – August 7th.

The loveable Brit and audience favourite is back – Shirley Valentine by Willy Russell. In a recent survey, patrons voted this show as one of their most treasured moments at Globus Theatre. It’s the perfect show to bring back to the stage when we all long for some inspiration and hope. A must see for anyone who’s recently started talking to the wall! Starring Sarah Quick and running from August 11 – August 28. 

As the season closer, Globus Theatre welcomes Gabi Epstein to the stage. Multi award-winning stage and cabaret performer, Gabi Epstein, shares her own journey of self-discovery through reimagined versions of her idol Barbra Streisand’s greatest hits. Gabs Sings Babs reminds us to remain true to ourselves by celebrating, not hiding from what makes us truly unique. On stage from September 1st – September 4th

Artistic Director, Sarah Quick says, Great consideration was afforded to what we could produce safely. Our mini seasons in the latter half of last year provided an excellent learning experience as to how best to provide quality entertainment in a safe setting. We are continuing with our limited audiences of 50 – this means that even if allowed to open to higher numbers as the summer progresses, we will not. Booking now means you can be assured that you will be distanced from your fellow theatre lovers regardless of a loosening in restrictions – and you get an exclusive VIP feel with every show!

After hearing how much audiences loved their reading series in 2020, Globus Theatre has sprinkled in a couple of play readings throughout the season. On May 20thEllen Denny (co-creator of our recent outdoor show, february: a love story) brings her new play, Pleasureville – a story about Leah, a city gal, who moves to a small town and opens a sex shop of course! On June 11th & 12th Armon Ghaeinizadeh & Justine Christensen bring Broken Glass – a modern reimagining of Tennessee William’s The Glass Menagerie with live musical accompaniment.

Tickets will go on sale on:  April 6th for Donors   |    April 8th for the General Public

Tickets can be booked by calling the box office: 705-738-2037
