Fall 2016 – Waiting for Ringo
Directed by Helen Weeden
All proceeds from this show will go to the West Carleton Food Access Centre.
(Update: We raised over $1000 for the Food Access Centre)
This upbeat comedy, written to be performed in a diner, chronicles a night in the life of three members of a third rate Beatles tribute band. How long can they keep putting on flea bitten wigs and frayed suits and doing their act? It depends on which of them is asked and their answers are at turns hilarious and touching.
WAITING FOR RINGO was originally produced by the Grace Players, Natalija Nogulich, artistic director, at the Egyptian Arena Theatre in Los Angeles on August 16, 1997. The production was directed by Tom Parks.
“Froliciking comedy…strong characterizations and reflections on friendship.”
– Los Angeles Times
“There are delightful insights into these determined almost musicians. Delightful…very funny…priceless.”

One-Act Play Festival
Each year in November, the Eastern Ontario Drama League (EODL) holds a one-act play festival with participation from many community theatre groups across Eastern Ontario from Deep River to Belleville, and everything in between. Each year 9 theatre companies bring their play to the festival for a fun weekend of theatre and friendly competition. This year, the festival is being hosted by Studio Theatre in Perth. In 2017, Rural Root will be hosting the festival in Constance Bay. As 2017 is the 150 anniversary of confederation, all participants will be performing plays by Canadian Playwrights.
If you would like to attend the festival, there are 3 sessions being held (Friday, November 11th evening, Saturday, November 12th afternoon and Saturday, November 12th evening), with three plays per session. Tickets are $20 per session.
