Theatre Collingwood presents: A Scandal for All Seasons
August 2 @ 7:00 pm - August 6 @ 9:00 pm
Collingwood, ON: Fresh off the heels of its 2nd annual PORCHSIDE Festival, which brought theatre lovers into 13 beautiful backyard settings for an incredible outdoor entertainment series throughout July, Theatre Collingwood is heading back indoors to the Simcoe Street Theatre with more summer entertainment. A Scandal for All Seasons is a brand-new Canadian comedy that will make you laugh-out-loud with its racy political satire. This fun-filled production entertains audiences now through August 6th.
“A Scandal for All Seasons is a quick-witted production that is guaranteed to entertain,” says Erica Angus, Executive Director of Theatre Collingwood. “The fun, flirty nature of this farce makes it the perfect summer theatre experience.”
Written by Burke Campbell, A Scandal for All Seasons is set in Barrie, Ontario where fabulously rich socialites, Doris Lester and Augusta Peacock, form an unlikely alliance to promote the mayor’s progressive agenda and get him re-elected. Biff Worthington, Barrie’s young, handsome and athletic mayor, wants to rocket Barrie from a safe, cozy small town into a bustling grand metropolis. Instead, the city’s ultra-conservative forces try to foil Biff at every turn.
Behind the scenes, the women’s mutual lust for Biff becomes a rivalry of gigantic comedic proportions as they engage in a “battle of the bulge”. The flurry of sexual innuendo, gossip, backstabbing, and political intrigue promises to have you laughing hysterically! Who will be the successful winner of Biff’s heart? The outcome is sure to be outrageous!
This hilarious farce is on stage at the Simcoe Street Theatre in Collingwood for seven performances only, from August 2nd through 6th, 2022.
