We appreciate, especially in such a challenging and uncertain time, the number of charitable requests our supporters receive and we are grateful to all who were able to include Theatre on the Ridge in their generosity this year.

 As we approach the close of our 10th Anniversary year, we are very proud of the work we have accomplished to date and, with the support of our donors, we look forward to beginning our second decade of creating captivating theatre.

It’s not too late to share in our journey – donations of any size are always welcome and can be made here –

 And remember, the easiest way to support our work is to see it!

Theatre on the Ridge is a not for profit professional theatre company performing throughout the year in Port Perry, Scugog Township and the Durham Region. Our annual Summer Festival takes place on the grounds of Scugog Shores Museum Village, just east of Port Perry.

Theatre on the Ridge has collaborated with up and coming playwright Uju Umenyi, to create a new play based on the life of Port Perry’s first black resident.

Samuel Stout arrived in Scugog in the later part of the 19th century and worked as a barber, married a white woman, became an important member of the community, and died a centenarian and the oldest man in Scugog.

Scugog Shores MuseumTheatre on the Ridge acknowledges that we are situated within the Williams Treaties and the traditional territories of the Mississaugas, a branch of the greater Anishinaabeg Nation, which includes the Algonquin, Ojibway, Mississauga, Chippewa, Odawa, Delaware and Potawatomi peoples. We recognize that land acknowledgements are not enough. We must pursue truth, reconciliation, decolonization and allyship in an ongoing effort to make right with all our relations. In our work here, we seek to honour the generations of Indigenous Elders and knowledge keepers who have gone before us, as well as those yet to come.
