The Classic Theatre Festival is returning to Perth for a fifth season. Mark Wednesday, July 30th on your calendar. That day is CARP Lanark County Chapter 55 Day at the Perth Classic Theatre Festival. The festival is moving to a renovated, brand new theatre facility at 54 Beckwith Street East (the hall at Perth’s historic St. James Anglican Church). A pre-show talk starts at 1:30 PM to explain the history, story, background and social and cultural context of the play. Neil Simons comedy Come Blow Your Horn starts at 2 PM. Tickets for CARP members are discounted to $27.50.

We have arranged bus transportation from the Almonte area at a cost of $38.00 including the theatre ticket ($44.00 for those not CARP members). The proposal is to bus from Almonte to historic Perth for lunch and maybe a stroll around town. We are also currently working on arranging bus transportation from Carleton Place and Smiths Falls. Contact Karen Timmons at 613-807-2005 to enquire about bus transportation.
