Upper Canada Playhouse opened its doors September 7. The first show of their Fall Season, Johnny & June, sold out and their second show, the new Norm Foster comedy, Old Love, is already filling up its 5 ½ week run until October 30th. The Playhouse has added nine additional performances. “Our re-opening has been amazing,” adds Artistic Director Donnie Bowes. “Not only have people been enjoying the shows, but they’ve also expressed their appreciation for all the COVID protocols we’ve put in place and how safe they feel attending our live shows again.”

Old Love is the story of one man’s obsession. For 25 years, Bud has loved Molly from afar. Molly, too, has been waiting but she just doesn’t know it. Now he’s recently divorced and she’s newly-widowed. At her husband’s funeral, Bud sees his chance to win her at last and emerges to pay his respects, leading to a re-awakening of forgotten emotions. It’s a story of romance, courtship and relationships between older adults.

Filled with humour and heart, this sparkling Foster comedy is driven by hilarious situations, witty dialogue and unforgettable characters and poses the age-old question about whether or not it’s ever too late to start again.

Old Love plays until October 30, with matinee and evening performances Tuesday through Sunday. The season continues in November with Sweet Dreams: The Music of Patsy Cline and Lucien in Trumpland and concludes in December with the new Leisa Way concert Rockin’ Round the Christmas Tree.
