DINNER THEATRE

Cast of “Hello….Is there Any Body Out There”

In the Spring and Autumn, the Buckhorn Community Centre is transformed into a theatre.  The Hall’s Bridge Players – no, they’re not bridge players – these players act out or up and bring comedies to life for the enjoyment of sold-out audiences.

In the Spring, the event takes place over six nights in April. Tickets go on sale in February/March. The Autumn dinner theatre happens in November for six nights and tickets are on sale in September. We always perform comedies. (See below for exact dates.)

We are always looking for actors, kitchen help, table setters, and young people to serve the meals.  If you’d like to help out, email us at judy@buckhorncommunitycentre.com or call the Centre at 705-657-8833.

SUMMER THEATRE 2017

We are excited to be launching our Spring play for summer residents and visitors sponsored by Sales Representative Rhonda Brewster, RE/MAX All-Stars Realty Inc . This hilarious play was sold out in the Spring. This summers performance by the Hall’s Bridge Players will be Wednesday July 19 and 26 and Thursday July 20 and 27. Doors open at 6pm and the plays starts at 7pm. Tickets are $22 dollars. Groups of 10 or more are $21 and can secure this discount by calling the BCC. Dessert and beverage between acts is included. We are licenced. This is good clean comedy but is rated PG.  Tickets are non refundable. Listed below are restaurants that have partnered with us……check out the links to their information.

Fall production comment – “The play was hilarious, the actors were enthusiastic and amazing. It is so great to go out for an evening (so reasonably) with friends and share a laugh. On top of the play you add an amazing meal served by smiling young people!”

Testimonial:
Let me start with thanking all of you for the July 1 festivities. It was so amazing and very well organized. We live in Ajax and ever since we bought our cottage 8 years ago, we only go to the Buckhorn Canada Day festivities.

KenJen Petting Zoo

KenJen Petting Zoo

Our kids love the climbing rock, the free petting zoo, the different magicians, the $1 Kawartha Dairy ice cream, the homemade grilled onions on the hamburgers, the jumping castles (one year, you had the Velcro jumping castle, that was great fun for teens), the hundreds and hundreds of homemade Canada Day cupcakes, the free watermelon everywhere, the friendly vendors with their great deals and so on!!! Thank you to the great volunteers of the Buckhorn Community Centre!”
