Stone Fence Theatre

New from Stone Fence Theatre in 2022

Tom Thomson lives again at the Bonnechere Caves

After two years on hold due to the pandemic, Stone Fence Theatre is eager to launch a remarkable new musical about the life and death of Canada’s most famous artist: Tom Thomson & The Colours of Canada: Love, gossip and murder in Algonquin Park.

The show was written and composed by Ish Theilheimer, with Peter Brown and is directed by Chantal Elie-Sernoskie. It is being staged in a unique setting, beside the Bonnechere River at the Bonnechere Caves near Eganville. It will be performed on Tuesdays and Thursdays from July 12th to August 18th, outdoors, beginning at 6 pm.

The play itself is based to a large extent on the book, Northern Light, by Ottawa journalist and novelist Roy MacGregor, who grew up in Whitney and Huntsville and is related to one of the story’s main characters – Winifred Trainor, Thomson’s presumed fiancée and whose grandfather was Chief Ranger of Algonquin Park.

Tickets, which cost $30 or $15 for students are available online or by phone, once tickets go on sale.
