INCIDENT AT GLT STUDIO

Incident at GLT Studio

On Wednesday evening, August 12, 2017 the back door of Georgetown Little Theatre Productions Inc. Studio was compromised by a break in shortly before 10:00 pm. The perpetrator then proceeded to ignite a fire at the bottom of stairs leading to the props and costumes rooms. Due to the quick response by the Halton Hills Fire Department and Halton Regional Police the fire was extinguished containing it to a small area.

Damage was minimal, mainly smoke damage through the building. As the site was considered a crime scene, the Police instructed the President, Virginia Bancur and the Board of Directors of GLT not to discuss the incident with outside personnel. The Fire Marshal, Andrea Gaynor, released the building on Thursday afternoon, once she completed her inspection.

An out pouring of support has been received from community theatre groups in Halton, as far away as Thorold and Woodstock, Ontario theatre organizations and the Town of Halton Hills.

Cleaning the building of smoke damage and repairing any damaged areas has begun. The GLT Studio will be open and begin its 57th Season on August 25 and 26 with a presentation of improvisation by GLIC.

If anyone knows or has heard of anyone who may have committed this crime please call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS), through the website www.haltoncrimestoppers.ca or by texting “Tip 201” with a message to 274637 (CRIMES) OR contact the Halton Regional Police One District Criminal Investigations Bureau at 905-878-5511 ext. 2416.

Character Synopsis:
You have the sarcastic yet caring mother, Hilda Fluck, who ends up being the brains of the family; the hard working and scruffy father, Sam Fluck, who’s the symbol
of grit and perseverance; and throw in two misfit children, Gary Fluck and Janey Fluck, and you have the outline of any number of thirty-year-old sitcoms, this isn’t
a bad thing, for it really helps to solidify the sense of nostalgia. The remaining characters are what set it off the edge. You have the cool-cat, trombone-playing
girlfriend of Gary’s, Bobbi Jakes, and the friendly neighborhood thug, Beverley Woytowich. Add the fact that the children are both dead-end thirty-year-olds trying
to move back home, and you receive a clearer picture of the madness that takes place on stage.

Cast:
Hilda – Mid – fifties.
Sam – Her husband - Mid – fifties.
Gary – The son – 33 yrs old.
Janey – The daughter – 30 yrs old.
Bobbie- Gary’s girlfriend – early thirties.
Beverly – the “Gangster” – around 40 yrs old.

Of course, casting will depend upon who is available during auditions and will be adjusted accordingly.

This is a period piece set around 1956 and is a true ensemble play.
A very good comedy in the best Norm Foster tradition.

Any questions should be directed to Geoff at 905-339-6456.
