I know it’s still summer vacation, however, it’s time to also be thinking about what’s happening this fall!   I do hope all you young actors out there – ages 11 to 16 years –  will think about joining us at COMMUNITY THEATRE CLUB starting Tuesday, October 11.   Just send me an e-mail and let me know you are interested – I will definitely put your name on my list.   THEATRE CLUB will run through the fall and winter on Tuesday evenings, starting October 11, 7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.  Total annual fee is $350; payable $250 at registration; and $100 January 3, 2023.   There are compulsory dress rehearsals booked for Saturday morning, February 18, 9:00 to noon;  Saturday morning, February 25, 2023, 9:00 to noon; and Sunday afternoon, February 26, 1:00 to 4:00.  Our annual performance will take place Friday, March 3, at 7:00 p.m.  If you think you might have the “theatre bug”, come and join us!


The first practice for our fall session of COMMUNITY CHILDREN’S CHOIR will take place Sunday morning, October 16, 2022, at 11:30 a.m., right after Thanksgiving.  We will return with lots of energy, and ready to focus on seasonal music leading up to Christmas.  We will sing as guests at Trinity’s Sunday Morning Christmas Family Service in early December.  As well, our singers will join the Trinity Senior Choir at their annual evening Christmas Cantata

We run our choir sessions in separate, relatively short, blocks of time.  This makes it easier for families to commit to attendance.  Attendance at practice every Sunday is really important in order for our singers to have a rewarding experience in our Community Choir.  All practices will take place in the sanctuary at Trinity United Church, 400 Speedvale Avenue N.

We are looking for boys and girls, ages 7 to 14, in our community who like to sing!  We offer an opportunity to learn the joy of singing in an environment of love and fun.    There is no fee.  Just come and sing with us!!!


GUP COMMUNITY THEATRE CAMP Season 2022 was the BEST!!!!  Four Performances for our families and friends.  Morning Camp, ages 6 to 10, stared in BIRDS OF A FEATHER, EH!   What an adventure that was!!!   Birds everywhere, and one Flamingo way off course.   Afternoon Campers, ages 11 to 16, told us all about POPPY’S.  The most popular pizza shop in town!  Poppy makes the best tomato sauce in Ontario, and it’s time everyone heard about it!    Two daughters, a goofy boyfriend, a rat, a collection of crazy customers……   Lots of fun for everyone!

Next summer, our Theatre Camps will run the weeks of July 10 to 14; and July 24 to 28, 2023:   Morning Camp, 9:00 to noon –  6 to 10 year-olds.  Afternoon Camp, 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. – 11 to 16 year-olds.  

Contact me anytime with any question you may have.  Word of mouth is the best form of advertising.  We appreciate your telling other friends and families all about our programs.
