Globus Theatre Is Partnering With Foster Fest To Bring A Touching Tale To Audiences At Home

KAWARTHA LAKES-Globus Theatre has partnered with The Foster Festival to bring another inspiring story from renowned Canadian playwright Norm Foster to audiences at home. Theatre lovers can now book a Dinner & Show package from Globus Theatre that includes digital theatre tickets for the live online play reading of Norm Foster’s 1812, plus dinner from the Lakeview Arts Barn in Bobcaygeon!

Through humour and Foster’s trademark witty dialogue, Norm Foster’s 1812 examines the meaning of friendship, love and loyalty.

Two towns. A bridge connecting them and a border dividing them. When the war of 1812 breaks out, the neighbouring border towns of St. Stephen, New Brunswick and Calais, Maine are reluctant to go to war against each other. The people in each community have built life-long friendships – freely crossing the bridge that connects them for daily visits. Literally overnight, the war quickly redefines their world as they know it and their lives are forever changed.

Ellen Denny and Mari Babb who recently performed in and directed february: a love story, Globus’ first outdoor show, will star in the live play reading along with Dora Award winning Jon-Alex MacFarlane, Artistic Director of Theatre Orangeville David Nain, renowned actress Patricia Yeatman and Dora nominated performer Andre Anthony.

“While we had hoped to have been welcoming audiences into the theatre as of this week, we are not able to do so. However, that doesn’t mean the entertainment needs to come to a standstill! We are delighted to once more partner with the fine people of The Foster Festival to bring you this great show that you can enjoy in the safety and comfort of your own home.” – Globus Theatre’s Artistic Director, Sarah Quick

The Lakeview Arts Barn’s 3-course dinner menu includes many crowd favourites like Roast Beef and Yorkshire Pudding, Rioja Braised Lamb Shank and for dessert Sticky Toffee Pudding with Kawartha Dairy Ice Cream.  The full menu can be seen on their website www.globustheatre.com.

Dinner & Theatre tickets are $105 per couple with single ticket and family pricing also available. They can be booked by calling Globus Theatre’s box office at 705-738-2037. Once booked, dinner can be picked up at the Lakeview Arts Barn between 4:00pm and 6:00pm on June 6th with the live play reading beginning at 6:30pm.
