(Roseneath Theatre is thrilled to welcome the company of Wired to Ontario. We are delighted to be presenting this Green Thumb production on tour until December 6th. The cast and stage manager sent us these words from the road at the end of week one.)
We hit the ground running for our first week with 11 shows! They included a special performance for theatre students at Humber College. Although they were quite a bit older than our target audience, they were still one of our best audiences with lots of laughs throughout. It was a special treat to perform in a theatre with full theatre lighting. We were also very fortunate that they had a full workshop available because our set actually fell apart while we loaded in! The fabulous production students helped us fix it up and even made it better than before! We were extremely grateful for their help.

In the evenings, we have enjoyed exploring Toronto and catching up with old friends. We were also very pleased to get to go see the first preview of Green Thumb Theatre’s Moss Park at Theatre Passe Muraille. It’s an excellent production directed by Wired’s very own director, Patrick Macdonald, with strong performances from Graeme McComb and Haley McGee. We highly recommend it.
We ended the week with two public preview shows at the Roseneath Theatre, which just happened to be up 3 flights of stairs! No need to hit the gym that day, we all definitely got a workout loading our set up and down those stairs. We were very pleased to welcome the cast of Moss Park to our afternoon show as well as our long-lost director, Patrick MacDonald. It was lovely to have him back to see the show.
We immediately felt a part of the Roseneath family and we’re very proud to be able to represent Green Thumb all the way over here on the other side of the country. So, one week down. Five more to go. We look forward to more good times and getting to explore some more of Ontario in the coming weeks.
