The Curtain Club is pleased to announce its participation in Doors Open 2010. On June 12th along with various other locations in Richmond Hill, The Curtain Club will open its backstage space to fans and patrons.
Joan Burrows, President of The Curtain Club, notes: "Theatre is enjoyable and thrilling to an audience because of the illusion that’s created on stage. Opening our backstage doors may destroy this but I know that our patrons will also find the experience fascinating. Much of what we do is created in a very small space. Our regular audience only gets to see the lobby and the auditorium but Doors Open will allow them to tour backstage and check out the dressing rooms, storage spaces, workshops as well as the technical area of the booth for lighting and sound operation. Also, our wardrobe room will fascinate as well as entertain as we plan to pull several items out for you to try on - so bring your cameras!"

Congratulations to The Curtain Club and it’s members on nominations and awards received during the Association of Community Theatres - Central Ontario Gala.
Congratulations to Colleen Sibeon who was awarded best performance by a female in a supporting role in a drama for her portrayal of Louise MacKeigan in Marion Bridge. Congratulations also to Dan Suplido for his nomination for best set design for Marion Bridge. This production was the only one entered into the festival this season due to the renovations of The Curtain Club and was staged at the Richmond Hill Centre for the Performing Arts.
We recently moved to Richmond Hill. I just found you guys on the web and was thrilled that our little town has a theatre. I was all prepared to order season tickets and apply for membership. I was very excited about the new Center for Performing Arts. Imagine how I feel now that I discover you are in CANADA and I am in Richmond Hill, Georgia- a place really wanting for performing arts…sigh. BTW - your sets look amazing!
