Curtain Call Players News

The Executive at Curtain Call Players would like to wish you a Happy Holiday Season. We ALL believe the best part of the festive season is sharing time with family and friends ….and CHOCOLATE!  

On our path to rebuilding Curtain Call Players we have been reminded how strong our foundation truly is. The support has been heartwarming and we are grateful for the donations  received. Charitable receipts will be issued on amounts greater than $20. Thank you!

It Takes a Village!  Our team created this irresistible CHOCOLATE VILLAGE. It’s sure to make you the hit of ANY party!

Do you have any #SaveCCP items or services to auction and help us raise funds? (email us at FundraisingTeam@CurtainCallPlayers.ca )

These delicious “Single-Detached Tiny Homes” are scattered around the GTA ready for pickup! A hand crafted Holiday Card is  included!

Pickup locations available near Coxwell & Gerrard, Finch & Leslie, Keele & Dundas (business hours), and Pickering. You will be contacted by email (or phone if you leave your number during check-out) to confirm preferred location.

The Curtain Call Players is a Registered Charity dedicated to presenting and preserving the Arts …and we’ve been doing it for 40 years! (DONATE HERE)

Did you know it can cost us between $30-45,000+ to put on a Musical …twice a year! (theatre rental $16,000/yr. + rehearsal space $3,600/yr + set building unit $9,000/yr. + copyrights ranging from $5-20,000 per show + honorariums + costumes + lighting + sets and more).  Expenses continue to rise and
corporate donations and grants are harder to come by. We find ourselves searching for new ways to raise funds in order to keep ticket prices affordable.  Your support is appreciated and greatly desired!

“A Sentimental Season” – Celebrating 40 years of Community Theatre.
Prepare for some blasts from the past! Our theatre elves are preparing a series of Cabarets and Social events to showcase some of our fondest memories from the 64 productions we’ve presented over the years. WARNING …these events may cause flashbacks!
Dates and times to be announced in the coming months. STAY TUNED!

Watch for our Crowd Funding page in the New Year. Here you will be able to help Curtain Call Players revive a CCP original…

A Sentimental Journey – Featuring the GTA Swing Band!

what is this?
Original production by Gerald Petkau and Keith O’Connell 2003

This MIND BLOWING Musical was written by two long-time CCP Members and was performed in 2003 and again in 2005 to sold out audiences. 
A Big Band Musical that is sure to have toes tappin’ one minute and tears flowing the next as excerpts from actual letters sent during World War II are shared in touching monologues. It is a personal tribute not only to those who went to war, but to those who stayed and kept things going here in Canada. 
After spending a “Sentimental Season” raising funds, it is our goal to bring this show back to our audience once more! We were touched to learn, in a recent survey, how many people still remember this show fondly and it is a dream to see it come to life again. With your help we can make it happen!

May the joy of the coming season live on in your hearts throughout the coming year! Let’s spread that LOVE around People!

See you in 2019!

The CCP Executive
