Welcome John Koensgen

We are sad to report that John McCarthy, originally cast to team up with Joan McBride, had an accident earlier this month. He is recovering well, but will not be able to perform in our production. We wish him a speedy recovery.

We are pleased to share the news that Ottawa based actor John Koensgen has been engaged to perform the role of David Kilbride in this humorous and poignant play. A very accomplished performer, John has been a professional actor for 42 years, and he is "thrilled to be working with this wonderful group of people on Norm Foster’s warm-hearted play." You can find out more about John here. We are delighted to welcome John to the team.
