Geordie returns to venue at Concordia
Theatre company Geordie Productions will be celebrating its 35th anniversary this year by bringing back some of its most popular shows and returning to a familiar venue, the D.B. Clarke Theatre at Concordia University.
“Our audience has told us that they find it [the D.B. Clarke Theatre] to be more accessible in terms of parking and public transit,” said Heather McCuen, the communications and marketing manager.
The first show of the season will be Hana’s Suitcase. Based on the novel by Karen Levine, the play tells the true story of 13-year-old Hana Brady, a Jewish girl born in Czechoslovakia who was separated from her parents during the Holocaust. A suitcase with her name on it also had the word “orphan” scrawled across it, which sparked an investigation into her life. The show is recommended for children 9 and up and will run from Nov. 5 to 15.
And just in time for Christmas, Geordie will present the classic A Christmas Carol. There will be an evening show on Dec. 11 and a matinee and evening show on Dec. 12.
In the spring, a fan favourite, Beethoven Lives Upstairs, will be performed. Through the eyes of a young boy, audiences will get to know the famous composer and learn about his music. This play is open to kids 5 & up and runs from April 29 to May 8, 2016.
