Wonder and Magic on a Winter Night

Dog&Angel-ad-Contributed by Jenny Salisbury

 

Theatre Columbus is back at Evergreen Brick Works with The Dog and the Angel by Martha Ross.
Winter Theatre defies logic. Preformed outdoors at the coldest and busiest time of year, this maddening season becomes wondrous — especially when doing something unexpected, like following a troupe of actors and musicians across a snow-covered field. This is Toronto’s new, beloved December tradition – Theatre Columbus at the Evergreen Brick Works.
This year welcomes The Dog and the Angel, written by Martha Ross and directed by Jennifer Brewin (the award winning team from The Story).  Brewin is a winter theatre guru, with over a dozen productions under her belt.  When asked why she loves it, Brewin confessed “every opening night I marvel at how it all comes together, as a thousand moving parts converge to create something remarkable. I think of it as the art of the miracle.”
The Dog and the Angel is about one family’s annual holiday party run amok; the dog is in a coma, the christmas tree angel is missing and the litigious neighbours threaten to crash the party. This year’s production features, an all-star cast, a fifteen member choir and a cameo performance by George, the golden doodle. Join us December 11-30, 2014.
