Now entering its 5th year, Theatre 3x60 is changing its name to Theatre On The Ridge, but will continue to be Durham’s entertaining and innovative professional theatre company that captivates on and offstage. Since 2014, the company has consistently committed to artistic excellence, accessibility, education and audience engagement while nurturing new artists and theatre works.
Through its summer theatre festival, held annually in Port Perry, Theatre On The Ridge presents professional theatre and musical productions of new, Canadian and international works that entertain and engage audiences, pairing a quality big city theatre experience with the welcome and appeal of small town rural hospitality. Summer 2018 will also see the return of the popular Pine Grove Plots cemetery walks and the premiere of an original theatre production for young audiences at the Scugog Memorial Public Library entitled Monsters and Milfoil.
Theatre On The Ridge will also have a new rehearsal and program space as it partners with the Utica Memory Hall to create a home base for its theatre education and community performance programs. Watch for youth and adult classes in stagecraft, playwriting and production skills, along with regular staged readings and studio scale productions.
