This year marks a special occasion: our 30th anniversary!
In 1990 a group of fresh theatre graduates took to the streets of Ottawa’s Byward Market performing iconic scenes from Shakespeare under the banner ‘a Company of Fools’. Over the next 30 years our organization would create over 40 productions, employ hundreds of artists, and put thousands of smiles on faces all across our region.
Since we can’t gather together to celebrate this milestone, we’re asking our past artists, volunteers, community partners, and audience members to share their experiences from the last 30 years. Every week we’ll update this page with a new collection memories.
We want to hear your favourite stories and memories of the Fools! Send a video, audio clip, piece of writing, or picture, to firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll share them here!
To kick things off we asked a few familiar Fools their memories. Here’s what they had to say!
