World Theatre Day is March 27th. The Ottawa Theatre Challenge is also March 27th. COINCIDENCE?
Not a chance! The Ottawa Theatre Challenge is hosted each year by a Company of Fools Theatre as a celebration of the creativity of the Ottawa Theatre Community. For a few hours Ottawa’s bravest and boldest theatre companies will strut their stuff in this competition of creativity, creating short plays based on 3 MYSTERY ITEMS provided to them by their fellow competitors 48 hours before the main event. The fierce competition will be judged by a carefully vetted panel of illustrious judges each selected for their flexibility and willingness to accept bribes. Hilarity is the result! Up for grabs is the coveted Rubber Chicken Award and bragging rights as Ottawa’s Best Theatre Company.
As well as a convivial evening of exaggerated rivalry, our goal is to raise funds to support the Actors Fund of Canada. The Actors Fund provided financial assistance to cultural workers recovering from illness injury or other circumstances causing severe economic and personal hardship.
Join us at the National Arts Centre 4th Stage, 53 Elgin St.
The doors open at 7 pm and the fun begins at 7:30
Tickets available now! through Ticketmaster or in person at the NAC box office.
