Special Announcement

Garden City Productions regrets to announce that our scheduled performances of Sister Act will be cancelled due to the outbreak of COVID-19.  We regret the short notice and disruption to our patrons, volunteers and performers’ plans.

Ontario’s chief medical officer, Dr. David Williams, has requested that assemblies greater than 250 people be cancelled or postponed.  Concern for the health and well-being of our patrons is an important factor in our decisions.  GCP is committed to presenting this show, hopefully in the fall, and details will be available once we have worked them out.

We appreciate your understanding and patience in this situation.

Unfortunately, this will have a significant impact on our non-profit community theatre company.   We encourage you to consider making a charitable donation for the value of your purchased tickets.  This would assist the organisation in this difficult time and we would be pleased to offer a tax receipt in the appropriate amount.

More information will be posted here as it becomes available.

Director and Choreographer: Brady VanVaerenbergh   Musical Director: Tom Inglis

ABOUT THE SHOW – Sister Act is the feel-good musical comedy smash based on the hit 1992 film that has audiences jumping to their feet! Featuring original music by Tony- and eight-time Oscar winner, Alan Menken …. READ MORE

The Production of Sister Act is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI). All authorized performance materials are also supplied by MTI.

Who is GCP?

Since its inception in 1956 as The Operatic Society of Grantham United Church, to becoming Garden City Productions in 1963, it seems we have come full circle recently purchasing our new home that we lovingly call ‘The Kirk’, formerly St. Andrews Church in St. Catharines.

Entertaining audiences with musicals like The Pirates of Penzance, Oliver!, Oklahoma, The King and I, Jesus Christ Superstar, Sweet Charity, Gypsy, West Side Story, Cabaret, The Full Monty, White Christmas, Annie, Godspell, Fiddler on the Roof and the list goes on!

Without the support of the many volunteers and of course you, our audience, we would not have been able to accomplish this huge achievement.

Many of our members have continued on to professional careers as actors, singers, dancers, choreographers, stage managers, lighting designers and teachers.

We are so proud to be able to say, “We knew them when“.

Sponsorship Opportunities

Not only does it take an army of actors and volunteers to produce a show for an audience to enjoy…. it takes money.  To offset the costs incurred we have several sponsorship levels for individuals or businesses to participate.

It is a great opportunity to advertise or simply support local theatre in your community.
