The annual Summerworks Theatre Festival runs this August 5th-15th. As the largest juried festival in Canada featuring predominantly New Canadian plays, SummerWorks looks to program a festival that uniquely reflects Toronto and Canada’s cultural zeitgeist. 2010 is Summerworks’ 20th year, and one of the venues for both the theatre festival and the sole venue for their music series is The Lower Ossington Theatre.
The Music Series is every night of the festival, with acts performing on the main stage upstairs, and in the new Performance bar downstairs. A great list of Canadian talent kicks off August 5 with The Hidden Cameras playing two nights on the mainstage, and other names like Laura Barrett, The Mountains & The Trees and more. The schedule for both theatre and music at The Lower Ossington Theatre is here:
Individual tickets for theatre and music shows are $10, with package deals available and shows run Aug 5-15.
