Upper Canada Village’s successful new theatre event adds extra performance date August 25

Canada 150 production Eve of Confederation ‘a smash hit’

MORRISBURG – The appeal of an old-fashioned romance is alive and well at Upper Canada Village this summer. The new theatre production Eve of Confederation running on Saturday evenings at the Village has been a smash hit. With almost every performance selling out since its Canada Day debut, Upper Canada Village has decided to add one more show on Friday, Aug. 25.

The special Ontario 150-supported production — also playing each Saturday through Aug. 19 — follows a small-town romance between Elizabeth, William and Edward. The story plays out in and around Upper Canada Village’s original 19th century buildings. The production is unique as the audience moves through the Village to different settings.

The play features a family-friendly script based on archival documents and historic newspaper. It is a memorable production that will make you feel like you’ve stepped right into the eve of Confederation in a way that can’t be experienced anywhere else!

A limited number of tickets — just 120 per show — are available for each production; advance ticket purchase is highly recommended. Purchase tickets online at www.uppercanadavillage.com.

Shows are scheduled 6:30  to 8 p.m. and cost $19.95 per person (plus HST and fee).

The Village also reminds patrons they may dine before the performance at historic Willard’s Hotel for $23 (plus HST); a theatre ticket must be purchased in advance. For dinner reservations call J&A Food Services at 613-543-0660.

Eve of Confederation is made possible through an Ontario 150 program grant and is sponsored by Pommier Jewellers of Cornwall and Stormont Dundas Glengarry Counties Tourism.
