4th Line Theatre Box Office



4th Line Theatre logo transparent backgroundIdyllic, rural, and quintessentially Canadian, each year the 4th Line Theatre Company presents Canadian plays - written by Canadians; small town stories or broad national sagas that touch a nerve in all of us.

Approaching its 28th season, 4th Line Theatre has been bringing history to life on the barnyard stages of a rustic 5th generation farm in Millbrook Ontario, between Peterborough and Port Hope. Founded in 1992 by Creative Director Robert Winslow, this outdoor theatre company is committed to preserving our Canadian cultural heritage through the development and presentation of environmentally-staged historical drama. 

During the Summer 2019 season, two plays will be presented including:


Bloom: A Rock 'n' Roll Fable

July 2nd - 27th, 2019

Written by Beau Dixon
Directed by Kim BlackwellGuitar

Bloom: A Rock 'n' Roll Fable follows the lives of two small town best friends from Assumption, Ontario, who share a lifelong love affair with rock 'n' roll music. From their childhood in the 1950s, to the heady music days of the 1970s. Bloom is based on stories collected from some of Peterborough's most renowned rock and roll personalities. The play will feature original music written by Beau Dixon and others. The barnyard will be rocking the entire month of July!

Carmel
August 6th - August 31st, 2019

Written by Ian MacLachlan and Robert Winslow
Directed by Robert WinslowFred Winslow

Carmel is the third in the Barnardo children series of plays (Doctor Barnardo's Children, 2005 and 2014; Wounded Soldiers, 2014) and will feature characters you already met and fell in love with. This play is filled with music, dancing, and farm families trying to get on with the job of living their lives. Set on the Carmel Line in Cavan Township in 1937, the play follows the struggles of a family to hold on to the farm during the Great Depression. This bittersweet work also explores Peterborough labour history and features original music inspired by country and western, and folk music traditions of the 1930s. Carmel is dedicated to Harold and Lillian Lunn.
