We’ve talked about the 4th Line Theatre in the past. They have been presenting first class theatre locally for 28 years. Bringing history to life on the stage, the theatre is set on a farm in Millbrook between Peterborough and Port Hope. Thousands of visitors have experienced unforgettable plays while enjoying picnics, local birds and sunsets.

You have two excellent choices right now. You can see the latest production, “The Other: A Strange Christmas Tale” in December or you can purchase 2019 gift certificates for yourself or as a gift this holiday season.

“A mysterious woman arrives in Millbrook on the night of the Christmas pageant. Who is she and where has she come from? A girl and her grandfather search the streets of Millbrook to find out, with audience members following them closely.”

“The Other: A Strange Christmas Tale” will be presented at the St. Thomas Anglican Church. Written by Beverley Cooper and Directed by Kim Blackwell the play will run December 5 at 7:00 PM, December 7, 8 at 7:00 PM and December 12, 13, 14 at 7:00 PM. Tickets can be purchased online at:

Your second option is to purchase tickets for yourself or as a gift – for the 2019 season. “Bloom: A Rock ‘n’ Roll Fable” and “Carmel” will be featured.

“Loosely based on the story of The Band, Beau Dixon’s “Bloom: A Rock ’n’ Roll Fable” follows the lives of two small-town best friends from Assumption, Ontario, who share a lifelong love affair with rock ’n’ roll music.  

Carmel is the third in the Barnardo children series of plays (Doctor Barnadro’s Children, 2005 & 2014; Wounded Soldiers, 2014) and will feature characters you already met and fell in love with. This play is filled with music, dancing and farm families trying to get on with the job of living their lives.”

If you are looking forward to your own home garden, you can buy vegetable and flower seedlings to get you started.

This years’ opening day for the Market is also Earth Day. To help celebrate, there will be a ‘local seed swap’. Just bring any extra seeds you have in envelopes that have been labelled – and trade them for something new to try in your own garden.

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.

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!)
