Snapshots Short Play Festival

Waiting For Winnie by Conrad Boyce
Early Bird by Craig Martin

Theatre on the Ridge presents new work by six Southern Ontario playwrights at the 2nd Port Perry Snapshots Festival. The festival, which began in 2021, continues to draw on moments, or “snapshots”, from our community in Scugog, that could define a single life, or life in a small Ontario town. This year, in recognition of the company’s new partnership with Scugog Shores Museum Village, we’ve reached into the past and six snapshots taken on the museum grounds were selected as writing prompts to inspire new one act plays.

There will be a post show conversation for the audience with the playwrights and artists after each performance. The readings will be directed by Theatre on the Ridge Artistic Director, Carey Nicholson.

 

Something From Nothing Beyond Words

July 12 – 17th, 2022

It’s been two years of sitting behind screens, standing six feet apart and not making physical contact with each other. This season, we put our successful Something From Nothing playwriting workshop on its feet and welcome physical theatre maker extraordinaire, Andy Massingham to create a new work on our summer company that gets off the page, onto the stage and back into our bodies.

Celebrating the power of theatre to communicate beyond words, this collaborative new piece will exercise our artists’ creativity and entertain and engage our audiences in a way that we haven’t been able to experience for far too long.

 

PUNCH UP

July 26 – Aug 6th 2022

Duncan has always been a pretty boring guy. Then he stumbles upon Brenda, a sad young woman who’s about to end her life. Convinced he’s fallen in love, Duncan strikes up a desperate deal: if he can get her to laugh, she’ll give life another shot. There’s just one catch: Duncan isn’t funny. At all.

A contemporary life and death tragicomedy of three misfits, Punch Up navigates a hostage situation and a life-or-death comedy lesson to show just how far we’ll go for a laugh.

Cyrano

August 16th – 27th, 2022

Immerse yourself in an evening of love!
In our exciting, site-specific production, Cyrano tells the story of the original swashbuckling, swooning adventure-poet, while also reminding us all of the tender sacrifice we make for those to whom we give our hearts.

Loosely based on the real life Cyrano de Bergerac, a French novelist, playwright and duelist, Edmond Rostand’s classic tale of a consummate hero and underdog was first written and performed in 1897. Our new adaptation of this famous unrequited love story invites audiences to celebrate, cherish and be part of a timeless tale that is as potent now as it ever was.
