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.
