Theatre Collingwood presented Shirley Valentine October 24th to a SOLD OUT audience. Robin Clipsham was outstanding in the role, and never missed a beat in the entire two hour, one woman show. Many know that Theatre Collingwood is collaborating with other regional theatre companies now. This production came from Director Dave Campbell and The Gravenhurst Opera House. "These collaborations have allowed us to present a broader range of performances in Collingwood, as well as the very best of talent", said Executive Director Erica Angus. The show was sponsored by Blue Rock Wealth Management who had many of their people in the audience and at the Red Carpet Reception following the show, which was deliciously sponsored by Santiniâ€™s Restaurante.
