During her travels, she meets Bruce Lovell, who sweeps the romance-craving Cecily off her feet, marries her, and takes her to his out-of-the-way cottage in the country. However, Lovell is not the charming gentleman he appears to be. Instead, he is a homicidal maniac of the most eerie, repulsive type, and is resolved to murder his new wife, just as he has murdered several other women before her. When a series of circumstances leads Cecily to realize the ghastly fact, she finds herself caught like a rat in a trap, unsure of how she will escape…

Future Planning for The Station Theatre

Monday, October 28th, 2013

The Smiths Falls Community Theatre has recently begun Strategic Planning Sessions with Victoria Steele, a theatre management consultant from Ottawa. Ms. Steele has had extensive experience in theatrical management ranging from a small town theatre like our own in Gravenhurst Ontario to working at the National Arts Centre in Ottawa.

The first session was held on Sunday October 20th on the stage at the Station Theatre. Seven members of our theatre board as well as four other interested people from our community of volunteers met from noon until 5:00 pm to set the groundwork for the Strategic Planning process.

Those of you who took the time to respond to our survey have been a big help in this process. Your thoughtful answers and comments gave us a good idea of what we are doing right and where we can improve.

We learned several interesting things at the first session.

  1. The Station Theatre is responsibly managed by the Board.
  2. Our financial status is good.
  3. We have a dedicated volunteer Board of Directors.
  4. We have talented actors who enjoy performing at the theatre.
  5. We provide a safe environment for all of our actors and backstage volunteers who devote countless hours sharing their talents for the community at large.
  6. We provide high quality and enjoyable entertainment for the public.

The one thing that struck Ms. Steele above anything else is that we have an over 90% satisfaction rating from our survey respondents. She said that she has never seen that high a rating in all of her years in theatre management. “You should all be extremely proud of what you have accomplished”, she added.

Does that mean we can sit back and rest on our laurels? No, there are lots of ways we can improve. Some suggestions have already been acted on. You’ll find more seating in the lobby for pre-show and intermission chatting. We’ll be announcing subscription packages for our 2014 season very soon. These are just a couple of items we can tick off our list easily. The rest will take a bit more time and planning. But rest assured – The Station Theatre has an even brighter future ahead.

We have two more session in November with our consultant. From those sessions we will have a Strategic Plan for the foreseeable future for The Station Theatre.

We would like to thank Valley Heartland for their support in providing some of the funding for these planning sessions.

What Do We Mean By “Mature” Theme

Tuesday, October 1st, 2013

We have heard that some people have expressed a concern about the “mature theme” description we have added to the publicity about The Game, one of the Trio of One Act Plays opening this week at The Station Theatre.

If you are shying away from attending these three fine plays because of the “mature” designation, please don’t let that stop you. There is no sex, no violence and no bad language in this play. You’ll see and hear far worse any night on television.

The Game is a short morality play that was written in the early 1900′s. It’s two main characters are “Death” and “Life”, who try to determine the fate of a “Youth” and “The Girl” by rolling dice and moving their playing pieces around a game board. Director Tim Bisaillon chose the play because he felt that it had relevance for today’s society and especially young people (three of the four actors are teens).

At one point the “Youth” mentions suicide and that is dealt with in a subsequent brief few lines. The play ends with a relatively satisfactory conclusion and leaves the audience with food for thought (after all, isn’t that what playwrights, actors and audiences usually want from theatre).

Sixteen actors, three directors and the backstage crew have worked many hours to bring our theatre patrons some thought-provoking (The Game), touching and heart-warming (Plum Hollow) and hilarious (Erica & Me) theatre. Don’t miss it!

Tickets are available for all performances HERE!

Volunteers Needed

Sunday, August 4th, 2013

Volunteers are the lifeblood of community theatres everywhere and we are no exception.

Producers, directors and actors and actresses are the first to come mind, but there are lots of other skills that we need to run a successful theatre.

Technical people are always in demand. For instance, we are in need of people to run our projection system to show the movies we feature at the Station Theatre. It involves loading a DVD and making sure the audio is working. Then dimming the lights and pressing play. Then sit back and enjoy the film. Not hard, but we need several people who know how to do this and are willing to commit to being there when needed.

Backstage craftspeople are need for set building, painting and cleanup after a show. Seamstresses and hair and makeup people are required for every show we put on.

Wanna help? Just call us at 613-283-0300 and leave a message or click the Contact Us link above and send us an email.

Thanks for your support!
