Get ready for a hot mid-winter's night! If music be the food of love....ROCK ON! The Ottawa Theatre School presents a rollicking, contemporary take on William Shakespeare's
"Twelfth Night, or What You Will." Director Andy Massingham has assembled a team of stellar performers to create a hip, physically dynamic staging of the Bard's timeless work. Veteran performers Pierre Brault, Greg Kramer, and Alix Sideris are joined by Brad Long and the graduating class of the Ottawa Theatre School in a hilarious chain-reaction, fuelled by mistaken identity, music, cross-dressing, gender-bending and comic duels. The Ottawa Theatre School is Ottawa’s only Conservatory Acting Training Program. Offering an intensive and rigorous 3-year program, the OTS encourages students to develop a unique artistic voice while honing specific acting skills. The school’s graduating students were featured in last year’s hit musical “Blood Brothers” at the Gladstone Theatre. Twelfth Night or What You Will When: Dec 1-18 (Tuesday-Saturday)
Time: 8 p.m.
Tickets: $20.00 Where: The Natalie Stern Studio Theatre, 294 Picton Ave. in Westboro Directed by: Andy Massingham Featuring: Pierre Brault, Greg Kramer, Brad Long, Alix Sideris, Diego Arvelo, Kyla Gray, Kaitlin Miller, Jodi Morden, Greg Shand and Henry Austin ShikongoFor more information call (613) 567-6788 or visit http://www.ottawatheatreschool.com

Free Admission ARTIST STATEMENT MEASURE-SPIN-CUT In my work I use my experience as a filmmaker to explore the dynamic possibilities of time and transition inherent in what appears to be a static moment. Projecting and blocking things out are selective operations used in filmmaking. Projections of the protagonist and the viewer are simultaneously represented by the screen. In mass media the face has become the ultimate focus through which the play of showing and concealing has been played out. Larger then life close-ups give us the ‘comfort’ of knowing what is going on in the face of the subject, and the chance to project our own inner feelings and desires onto the perfect projection screen. WHEN: NOVEMBER 24, 2010 - JANUARY 12, 2011 OSA Exhibition Schedule:
Metamorphish 2010 - a year of evolution - Dec 2/10 to Jan 11/11 vernissage Dec 5, 1-3pm - Trinity Gallery, Shenkman Arts Centre, Orleans Tin Fish first appeared in Ottawa in 2006 in a shop window in the Glebe, and now are about to make a big splash in Orleans. Shiny armoured fish sculpture built from recycled metal. Tin cans transformed into flying fish. Scrap copper roofing used to create leaping black bass. A crazy quilt of copper skin for an ancient Ichthyosaur on steel wheels. Catfood can lids glittering golden and silver scaled striped bass. A year of work and the "metamorphish" of that work. The slow creative evolution from one piece to the next captured over the period of one year. Come out and enjoy Trinity Gallery's transformation into an undersea aquarium. Alanna Baird has worked in metal since 1991. This is the first major showing of her work in Ottawa www.tinfish.ca
