Morrisburg’s Upper Canada Playhouse announced its 2024 Season with a line-up of shows to entertain audiences all year long. The popular theatre company is one of Eastern Ontario’s major cultural assets and embarks on its 41st year providing professional live theatre and music to local audiences as well as patrons from a wide catchment area including Ottawa, Brockville, Montreal and the many towns and villages within these urban areas and beyond.

It has also become one of the area’s leading tourism generators and significant contributers to the local economy. The Playhouse’s 2024 season provides a show for every season by adding winter, spring, fall and Christmas programming to its flagship summer theatre series. It also continues to offer a mix of live theatre and concerts to its playbill.

Leading off the summer shows June 6-30 is Perfect Wedding by Robin Hawdon. It’s a knee-slapping comedy about the big day gone wrong when the groom awakes to find a strange girl in bed beside him leading to unexpected chaos.

Upper Canada PlayhouseNext up July 4-28 is Bedtime Stories by popular playwright Norm Foster. The lives of fifteen different people in six different bedrooms are all connected in this clever and hilarious comedy. Audiences will be treated to the premiere of the new comedy Leaving Marjorie Bliss by John Spurway running August 1-25. In this laugh out loud comedy, three female residents of a seniors home decide to escape to a better facility when an attractive widower appears on the scene and disrupts their plans. The summer series concludes September 5-29 with a new Foster comedy, Those Movies. Harry and Millie finally plan their first date. But Harry’s friend Patrick and Millie’s friend accident-prone Chelsea arrive on the scene and join them. Will romance follow for any of them like in those movies? Another sure-fire hit comedy by Canada’s most-produced playwright.

The Playhouse season also offers live concerts throughout the year which have become a popular addition to their programing. Their Wild Weekend Concerts have been a particular hit by bringing back those shows that sold out their original runs. Off–season concerts continue in the Fall with Memphis to Motown, a new McHarge concert celebrating hits of such artists as Diana Ross and The Supremes, Smokey Robinson, The Temptations and Marvin Gaye to name a few.

The 2024 Season concludes with a wonderful production of the Christmas classic Miracle on 34th Street which tells the story of a store Santa claiming to be the real Santa Claus and forced to prove it in court. It’s a large-cast holiday show complete with a fabulous concert and tons of Christmas spirit.
