FAQ

Q
I’ve had a look through your website and have a fairly good idea of what you’re about. However I still have some questions.
A
    Fire Away.
Q
COVID?
A
    We will follow whatever provincial guidelines are in place on the date of the performance and trust you will do likewise.
Q
How does Muskoka Players differ from other professional groups?
A
    Quite simply: we bring the theatre to you. Theatre is story telling. Therefore one could make the case that there has been theatre in Muskoka since the first indigenous peoples told tales around a campfire. You supply the “campfire”. We supply the “tale”.
Q
What is a staged reading?
A
    The only difference between a staged reading and a full blown performance is that the actors remain in a set position and, as the name suggests, read from a script. In the hands of professionals a staged reading loses nothing in the translation and, as previous audiences have observed, they feel in a way more complicit with the actor. “It’s like getting a look behind the curtain.”
Q
Can I request a play that isn’t on your list?
A
    Sorry, you are limited to a choice from our menu. We explain why on the OUR PLAYS page.
Q
When would you perform?
A
    Matinee and/or evening. 2:00 and 8:00 are the usual “curtain times” but we’re flexible.
Q
Where would you perform?
A
    Indoors. Outdoors there are too many distractions.
Minimum playing area we require is 8’ x 12’.
Q
Can I charge admission?
A
    Once our fee is met it is entirely up to you.
Q
Is there a limit to the size of the audience?
A
    The only limit is what your home or cottage will accommodate.
