It is hard to imagine, but this is the 26th season for the 4th Line Theatre. The Season started off with David S. Craig’s Bombers: Reaping the Whirlwind. It’s now time for Robert Winslow’s “The History of Drinking in Cavan.”

Bethany.Ontario.Blog.4th.Line.Theatre.1

The 4th Line Theatre is a production company and outdoor performance venue on the grounds of the Winslow family farm near the village of Millbrook. The company performs two main plays each summer. They are usually about historical subjects and premiers works by local playwrights.

“The History of Drinking in Cavan” looks at alcohol consumption or the lack thereof in the local area over the past 200 years. Robert Winslow and his alter-ego, King, take audiences on a historical adventure, covering the early days of Irish settlement in the township through to present-day habits. Along the way the audience will follow outrageous anecdotes and serious tales of local residents.

Bethany.Ontario.Blog.4th.Line.Theatre.2

Managing Artistic Director Kim Blackwell shares her excitement…

“In our 2017 season, I am proud to share these two new works with audiences.  I have been waiting since 2010 to produce Robert Winslow’s insightful, funny and deeply personal story of alcohol consumption.  David S. Craig is a well-respected and talented Canadian playwright.  We are lucky to have him telling this important story at our theatre.”

There is a licensed concession and picnic area where you can get drinks, snacks or a full meal. You can also bring your own picnic (but do not bring your own alcoholic beverages!)

It’s simple. The Buddha is smiling because he has recently been released from a storage crate in time to greet visitors at the Cham Shan Temple Open House on June 19th, 2017.

 

Bethany.Ontario.Blog.Cham.Shan.Temple.Open.House

The Temple is the first of the Buddhist Association of Canada Cham Shan Temple’s project to build four Temples that mimic the sacred Temples in China. Years ago the Buddhist Association of Canada purchased about 1,700 acres of land for this purpose. The Wutai Shan Temple is on 530 acres and is the first to be built. The remaining three are planned for Manvers Township.

The Temples will take at least 20 years to build for one simple reason – they are funded only by donations.

The doors will be open at 10 a.m. on June 19th for the annual open house. If last years open house is any indication, you will want to get there early as almost 2000 visitors enjoyed the 2016 tour. Admission and parking are free, but remember how critical your donation is to the ongoing development of the project. You will be able to tour all 530 acres by car, on foot or by tour bus.

The Cham Shan Temple is a recreation of a series of sacred sites of China, designed to be a smaller version of the sacred pilgrimage of the Four Sacred Buddhist Mountains in China.

The main building at the Wutai Sham Temple site is the Main Dharma Hall – it faces Devil’s Elbow Ski Hill. The main reception area, gift shop, tea room and dining hall are on the first floor. You will also find a display of 88 Jade Buddha Statues, all carved in Myanmar from white jade.

Below is an artist’s rendering of the Temple.

Bethany.Ontario.Blog.Cham.Shan.Temple.Open.House.2

This year’s event will feature a prayer and blessing service to celebrate the Buddhist Association of Canada Cham Shan Temple’s 50th Anniversary in Canada.

Visitors will be welcomed by the massive Happy Buddha statue – smiling above!

Here is some trivia to mark the special open house on June 19th: the Happy Buddha weighs in at 126 tons and makes the landscape around it look small. The statue reflects the Buddhist philosophy of tolerance, compassion and the belief that you reap what you sow.

Enjoy the open house on June 19th!
