June 2 – June 11
Centrepointe Theatre, 101 Centrepointe Dr
Community organizations often ask for their councillor's help to draw attention to worthy causes. In this case, it's the Orpheus Musical Theatre, a longtime Ottawa cultural institution — founded in 1906 — that puts on top-quality musical theatre performances using mostly amateurs and volunteers, and also supports other charities around town.
Their latest production, Ragtime, set in New York City in the early 1900s, combines great music, acting and dance with a contemporary social justice message concerning racism, immigration and discrimination — issues that unfortunately still touch us today in Canada, in Ottawa, and even in Capital Ward.
Until May 24, you can take advantage of their special two-for-one ticket sale. Go to www.centrepointetheatre.com/promo and enter the code RAGBOGO.
