GLT Loses Two Greats

It is with great sadness that Georgetown Little Theatre Productions Inc. announce the passing of two of its senior members. These two Grand Dams were instrumental in forming GLT to what it is today.


Vera Macdonald, was one of GLT’s founding members 60 years ago. Vera was an actress and director with the group. She demanded perfection from her cast and got it. Her critiques on a show or performance were given as a learning tool. Very nurturing to budding actors and youth members, Vera often gave workshops on speech and other acting skills. Vera loved going to theatre shows, whether it be at The Shaw Festival, Stratford Festival or local community productions. She was a big supporter of all types of theatre. More on Vera’s involvement with GLT will be forthcoming.


Dorothy Hunt, was a power house behind GLT. Dorothy worked behind the scenes at GLT. A fabulous producer, often working on shows her husband Ron directed. She also looked after the costume department, where she knew were everything was, and all catalogued. Dorothy sat on the Board of Directors and was President when the studio burnt down. During this time GLT did not stop. Dorothy found rehearsal and building space, and new costumes. Her tenacity when dealing with the Town and local businesses rebuilt the studio we have today. Though Dorothy’s activities with GLT slowed down, she continued to support the group. More on Dorothy’s involvement with GLT will be forthcoming.

As Georgetown Little Theatre moves into its 60th year, these two ladies will be honoured.

Sweeney Todd: On the Razor’s Edge  Adapted by Michael Bigelow Dixon and Jon Jory        A Dark Comedy

November 6-8, 12-15, 2020

Sweeney Todd is a fictional character who first appeared as the villain of the Victorian penny dreadful serial The String of Pearls (1846–47). The original tale became a staple of Victorian melodrama and London urban legend possibly based on dubious pie-fillings. A barber from Fleet Street, Todd murders his customers and turns their bodies over to Mrs. Lovett, his partner in crime, who bakes their flesh into meat pies. Todd has since been the focus of British-American media like films, plays, and novels.


The Diary of Anne Frank   By Frances Goodrich & Albert Hackett        Drama

January 29-31, February 4-7, 2021

The Diary of a Young Girl, also known as The Diary of Anne Frank, is a book of the writings from the Dutch language diary kept by Anne Frank during the Nazi occupation of the Netherlands. The play is of the time the Frank family was in hiding for two years in the sealed-off upper rooms of the annex at the back of Otto's company building in Amsterdam. They were later joined by Otto's business partner, Hermann van Pels and his family. In August 1944, they were discovered and deported to Nazi concentration camps. The diary was retrieved by Miep Gies, who gave it to Anne's father, Otto Frank, the family's only known survivor, just after the war was over. The diary has since been published in more than 60 languages.

About the film:

The year is 2020. Humanity has reached out beyond the stars and formed a prosperous civilization lead by the United Galactic Council, a unification of all human controlled planets in the Galaxy.

Unfortunately, peace is ending. The UGC has been stuck in a seemingly endless stalemate with the evil Lord Galdar, Commander on the Keltian armies, and leader of the Keltan system.

As Galdar continues to terrify and strike at the peaceful UGC, only one man can be called upon to stop them.

Racing down the river the first few ducks to reach the shoot in the fence gets a predetermined prize. This year, GLT has a group of dedicated volunteers that have stepped up to the plate to keep the tradition alive!
