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.

For 27 seasons 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 2018 season, two plays will be presented including:

Crow Hill: The Telephone Play

July 3rd - 28th, 2018
Production Sponsored by: The Pyle Group Scotia Wealth Management 

Written by Ian McLachlan and Robert Winslow
Directed by Deb Williams
Starring Robert Winslow as Doc Logie
Crow Hill The Telephone Play
When the local country doctor opens the first telephone service in the area, fifteen-year-old Alice takes on the job of switchboard operator. This decision will direct the course of her life for the next thirty years. It isn't long before the potential to make money is clear and into town comes a fast-talking salesman who wants to open a telephone company and bring the town into the modern age. This decision puts him into direct competition and conflict with the doctor and Alice. Based on interviews with locals, "Crow Hill: The Telephone Play" has been praised by critics and audiences alike for its deeply moving portrayal of life in the early 20th century rural Ontario. This play, which had its world premiere in 1997 and was produced again in 2004, is a poignant and humorous look at love, friendship and community in
a world where technological changes can irrevocably alter the fabric of society.

Who Killed Snow White?
August 6th - August 25th, 2018
Production Sponsored by: Lakefield College School and MENding Program at Kawartha Sexual Assault Centre. Developed with the support of Peterborough's Art for Awareness.

Written by Juditch Thompson
Directed by Kim Blackwell

Serena is a normal fifteen-year-old girl. She loves her
mom and dad, she has loyal friends and she Who Killed Snow Whiteis struggling to find herself and her place in an increasingly complex world. An act of violence shatters Serena's world and shakes a community to its core, pitting young people and neighbours against each other as sides are taken and lines are drawn. This 'ripped from the headlines' play is an unflinching exploration of social media and cyberbullying among today's youth. Playwright Judith Thompson dives deep into the heart of our culture to examine the roots of sexual violence and the culture of toxic masculinity we struggle to understand. This 4th Line Theatre world premiere features a large cast, youth chorus and elements of the epic and the intimate.
