ITR is a rural theatre company dedicated to providing people in the former Osgoode and Rideau Townships and surrounding areas with an opportunity to indulge their interests in amateur theatre. Our main activities are geared towards a spring and fall production of 2 and 3 act plays, that are usually comedy, farce or melodrama. From time to time, we also do additional shorter productions at various locations throughout the community. We welcome anyone and everyone who shares our love of theatre, no matter what your interest or level of past experience. To find out more about the ITR Theatre group - it's activities, history, and newsletter - check out the About ITR. If you are interested in auditioning for future plays, working behind the scenes or providing support in any way, check out our Auditions Page and our Volunteers Page.
by Robert Chafe
Tempting Providence is a simple and often humorous tale that recounts the true story of nurse Myra Bennett who left her home in England in 1921 for Newfoundland to serve a community in great need on the remote Great Northern Peninsula. It follows the trials and joys of this courageous woman who became known as the Florence Nightingale of the North and a true Newfoundland legend.
by Oscar Wilde
The Importance of Being Earnest is the most renowned of Oscar Wilde's comedies. It's bright and witty and it remains a favourite of modern audiences. The play tells the story of two bachelors, John 'Jack' Worthing and Algernon 'Algy' Moncrieff, who create fictional excuses to escape their conventional lives. They attempt to win the hearts of two women who, inconveniently though enchantingly, claim to only love men called Ernest. The fellows struggle to keep up with their own stories and become tangled in a tale of deception, disguise and misadventure.
