Our virtual production of Work from Home Blues is now over. We have our fingers and toes crossed that our next production will be a live show in late fall. Given that this may well be our last virtual show of the pandemic, we would like to take the opportunity to thank everyone who participated in helping us keep the lights on.
We would first like to thank our audience members, both those of you who have stayed with us during the pandemic and those who took the opportunity to get to know us from much further away. Your support has been amazing. And thank you for the very generous donations to the charities we selected. We know they have put this money to very good use.
Thank you to the many actors who performed in our shows including Andrée-Cybèle Bilinski, Dave McIntyre, Dirk Visbach, Karin Murray-Bergquist, Greg Geisler, Dennis Sakalauskas, Paola Della Malva, Tanja Puchala, Kevin Anderson, Len Trembley, Abigaile Gagnon, Chuck Therien, Shauna Akkermans, and Shawn Langille. Whether you signed in from here in Ottawa or from Newfoundland, Toronto, Windsor or wherever in the world you were, you have helped make the ITR family even bigger and more widespread and having you perform for us has truly been a gift.
Now for the crew, and what a crew we have had. Myrna Ferris and Helen Visbach did an amazing job as producers. We were blessed with a series of wonderful directors including Lynda Daniluk, André Dimitrijevic, John Cook and Len Trembley. Catherine Potts-Halpin worked her incredible magic as Artistic Director on all three shows. Suzy Potts did our close captioning which provided access to those who might not otherwise have been able to enjoy the shows. Promotion was taken on by Jorie Basque and Sheila Dubyk. Last but not least are our Technical Producers. Paul Richmond worked sound and John Garrick, well, without John, none of our virtual productions would have taken place. We are deeply indebted to you for giving so much of your time to make these shows a success.
Thank you again to everyone. We are really looking forward to seeing you in person this fall.
