GLT Loses Two Greats

It is with great sadness that Georgetown Little Theatre Productions Inc. announce the passing of two of its senior members. These two Grand Dams were instrumental in forming GLT to what it is today.


Vera Macdonald, was one of GLT’s founding members 60 years ago. Vera was an actress and director with the group. She demanded perfection from her cast and got it. Her critiques on a show or performance were given as a learning tool. Very nurturing to budding actors and youth members, Vera often gave workshops on speech and other acting skills. Vera loved going to theatre shows, whether it be at The Shaw Festival, Stratford Festival or local community productions. She was a big supporter of all types of theatre. More on Vera’s involvement with GLT will be forthcoming.


Dorothy Hunt, was a power house behind GLT. Dorothy worked behind the scenes at GLT. A fabulous producer, often working on shows her husband Ron directed. She also looked after the costume department, where she knew were everything was, and all catalogued. Dorothy sat on the Board of Directors and was President when the studio burnt down. During this time GLT did not stop. Dorothy found rehearsal and building space, and new costumes. Her tenacity when dealing with the Town and local businesses rebuilt the studio we have today. Though Dorothy’s activities with GLT slowed down, she continued to support the group. More on Dorothy’s involvement with GLT will be forthcoming.

As Georgetown Little Theatre moves into its 60th year, these two ladies will be honoured.

About the film:

The year is 2020. Humanity has reached out beyond the stars and formed a prosperous civilization lead by the United Galactic Council, a unification of all human controlled planets in the Galaxy.

Unfortunately, peace is ending. The UGC has been stuck in a seemingly endless stalemate with the evil Lord Galdar, Commander on the Keltian armies, and leader of the Keltan system.

As Galdar continues to terrify and strike at the peaceful UGC, only one man can be called upon to stop them.

Glen Williams Duck Race 2019

This year Georgetown Little Theatre (GLT) was approached by the organizers of the Glen Williams Canada Day Celebration Committee to host and organize the Glen Williams Duck Race.

The duck race has been a long time Glen Williams tradition on Canada Day, where upwards of 3000 rubber ducks are tagged and dumped into the credit river. Racing down the river the first few ducks to reach the shoot in the fence gets a predetermined prize. This year, GLT has a group of dedicated volunteers that have stepped up to the plate to keep the tradition alive!
