Tom Fooling Around in King Lear, March 29 - April 1st, 2012

 It's a bold amateur company that takes on Shakespeare's great tragedy, King Lear.  So when the Glebe Neighbourhood Activities Group (GNAG) did just that, under the able directorship of Eleanor Crowder, how could I resist auditioning for a part?  And, as foreshadowed in a song I wrote several years ago, "...I ended up playing the Fool."
 It has been challenging and fun, and our performance dates are coming up fast (March 29 to April 1st, at the Glebe Community Centre, 175 Third Avenue, in Ottawa). Tickets are $20  ($15 for students, or $10 for the March 28 "preview"-- otherwise known as the final dress rehearsal).  To get tickets you can drop by the Centre or call 613-564-1058.  Seats are limited, so you'd be wise to get your tickets in advance.  Hope to see you there!
