Kenneth Grahame’s wild tale about the thrill-seeking, lovable menace Mr. Toad comes to life in a brand new musical with a book by Oscar-winning screenwriter and “Downton Abbey” creator Julian Fellowes and Olivier Award-winning composers and lyricists George Stiles and Anthony Drewe.

This riotous comedy follows the impulsive Mr. Toad whose insatiable need for speed lands him in serious trouble. With his beloved home under threat for the notorious Chief Weasel and his gang of sinister Wild Wooders, Toad must attempt a daring escape leading to a series of misadventures and a heroic battle to recapture Toad Hall.

We guarantee a heart-warming and memorable experience, as we recreate this beloved tale at our centre. Eleanor Crowder directs the staging. Lauren Saindon directs the music. Ciana VanDusen choreographs the dance. Together, along with their incredible production team, they present a musical that will make your heart and voice soar.

The community’s support of our theatre program is vital for its continued success. We hope to see you there!

Women’s March Canada: Ottawa Chapter

On January 19, 2019, We March Again!

The march starts at 11:00 on Parliament Hill.

Women’s March Ottawa would like to acknowledge that Ottawa is on the unceded territory of the Algonquin people. We keep this acknowledgement at the forefront of our March and thank the Algonquin people for allowing us to gather. And we thank the generations of Indigenous women who have taken care of this land before us and continue to fight for mother nature.

We also make it clear that Women’s March Ottawa does not tolerate violence, racism or sexism of any kind, including cissexism and heterosexism. We do not support ableism, colonialism or any other forms of oppression. We strive to create an event that centres the experiences of marginalized communities, especially folks impacted by racism, anti-black racism, colonialism, ableism and transphobia. It is intended to celebrate diversity, inclusion and empowerment of ALL who are women!

Importantly, the work of Women’s March Canada and Women’s March Ottawa is centred on Martin Luther King’s principles of non-violent protest and peaceful civic demonstration. If you cannot adhere to the core values, please do not attend our events. If you believe in these principles – we can’t wait to see you there!

WE MARCH AGAIN. In solidarity with women and human rights groups from across the world, we will march again to show that the progress made in 2017 was not enough. There is still so much work to do to protect and advance the rights of women and the rights of all vulnerable citizens in our country.

​Women’s organizations in Ottawa, along with us, invite you to save the date for a timely conversation about women’s issues and practical tools for community-organizing and lobbying in Ottawa.
