At 10C Shared Space at 42 Carden Street Guelph
An indoor walking tour whereby you never leave your seat.
Images and sound effects compliment the true tales of Guelph Scandal
Many years ago I lived on a farm near this building.
I have been speaking with Oro Township, asking for some history about the Community Hall to include in an upcoming press release about the show. Lori from the Township of Oro has been most helpful. She sent me this school picture she came across from 1893.
I also like the way the photographer has not only lined up the children according to height in each row, he has also placed tree branches across the front row, giving it a country feel.
You can also conclude that there are some students likely connected to the nearby African Episcopal Methodist Church who are attending S.S. #6.
I look forward to learning more about The Edgar Hall and I especially look forward to animating the space with some charming Irish stories.
Imagine life in this area in 1893!
For those following this blog you will recall that Alison was commandeered into creating an image of the Ennotville Library so that I could include it in a poster for the Father's Day performance of Lilt of Laughter, Trace of Tears which will take place at this charming venue.
She started by doing a pastel, but quickly abandoned that idea preferring to do a pencil drawing.
Fathers from all over Ontario are going to love the poster...and the show!
And here is the incompleted pastel, which no longer exists.
Don't miss this delightful Irish show. Sold out performances July & November 2023.

The Red Brick Cafe is the perfect venue for this show.
A wonderful way to celebrate St. Patrick's Day
When discovering the stories for the Scandalous Guelph Tour, I came across pictures of old buildings, tombstones, newspaper headlines, and obscure photographs of people. "One day these will come in handy", I said. At the same time, when reading these true tales I would often hear sounds, howling wind, thunder, a distant train whistle, voices, and music.

The outdoor tours are marvelous because we often stand on the very spot where the event took place. I seek out unique locations to visit and we are in nature, surrounded by striking architecture. We feel the wind on our face or the heat of the sun while listening to these fascinating stories.
An indoor tour removes the distractions, the screeching of cars, loud sirens, trucks backing up and airplanes. The pictures transport us to another time.
All three of the walking tours, Gwelf Early Days, The Unfortunate Man and Scandalous Guelph have indoor versions and I am very excited to be bringing Scandalous Guelph to 10C Shared Space on Saturday April 27, 2024

The summer theatre season has always stirred up intense feelings of joy and excitement.
It is no surprise then that I have come up with a summer theatre tour of my own in my "golden years".
The Show - Lilt of Laughter, Trace of Tears, a one-man show featuring delightful Irish characters in amusing and unusual situations.
