Valerie Robertson

Domino Theatre is sad to learn that Valerie Robertson, one of the founders of Domino and later of Theatre 5, has died. Valerie and her late husband Gordon hosted the meeting in October 1952 at which Domino began, soon after they arrived in Kingston. The Robertson family has been at the heart of theatre in Kingston ever since that year.

Thurs.-Sat., Oct. 19-Nov. 4, 7:30 p.m.
The Davies Foundation Auditorium
52 Church St., Kingston, ON

This is the love story of Ethel and Norman Thayer, who are returning to their summer home on Golden Pond for the forty-eighth year. He is a retired professor, nearing eighty, with heart palpitations and a failing memory-but still as tart-tongued, observant and eager for life as ever. Ethel, ten years younger, and the perfect foil for Norman, delights in all the small things that have enriched and continue to enrich their long life together. More

Man Eight

by Tony Houghton
Tues., Oct. 24, 7:30 p.m.
The Davies Foundation Auditorium
52 Church St., Kingston, ON

In Man Eight, the great Scottish composer Edgar Manlius composed seven symphonies, a violin concerto, and a famous short piece called “Scotlandia” which became Scotland's unofficial national anthem. At the age of 50 he stopped writing. He has now lived for 20 years with his wife, Mary, in a comfortable house overlooking Loch Lomond, living off the royalties from “Scotlandia”. One day an unexpected visitor arrives, a young African lady with an unusual and disturbing request that poses a severe quandary for the Manlius household. More

In this hilarious Christmas classic, a couple struggling to put on a church Christmas pageant is faced with casting the Herdman kids--probably the most inventively awful kids in history. You won't believe the mayhem - and the fun - when the Herdmans collide with the Christmas story head on! More

Season

Since its unusual beginning between feature films at the old Odeon Theatre, Domino has grown to a full seven-play winter season. Each season offers an appealing mix of drama, comedy and mystery from the Canadian and world stages.

Domino is truly a "community" theatre. People from all walks of life pool their skills to present productions of a consistently high calibre. As a member of the Eastern Ontario Drama League and Theatre Ontario, Domino is actively involved in the Ontario amateur theatre community and has acted as host to several annual festivals. Many Domino people and productions have been recognized for their excellence at the regional and provincial levels.

With a Board of Directors elected by the membership, and with advertised auditions open to all, Domino welcomes the participation of interested volunteers both on stage and behind the scenes.

The Lounge Gallery

Domino Theatre displays original artwork by local artists in the theatre lounge throughout our regular season. For more information and to apply click here.
