GNAG Community Theatre has to postpone the Sound of Music. We will update you as soon as possible regarding new dates and refunds.
Dear GNAG Families,
As you all know the City if Ottawa is working very closely with the Ministry of Health, Health Canada, Ottawa Public Health and the World Health Organization to manage the spread of COVID-19 virus in Ottawa.
Yesterday, the Ontario Government announced that all publicly funded Ontario elementary and secondary schools will close for two weeks after March break.
The health and safety of our staff and our community is a priority and in light of that, we have decided to reduce the risk of exposure by cancelling all GNAG programs effective Saturday, March 14 – Sunday, April 5 or until further notice.
The Glebe Community Centre will be closed Monday, March 16 – Sunday, April 5
We continue to remind all staff and clients that if you are showing any signs or symptoms of the virus to please stay at home. If you are feeling ill with fever, cough or difficulty breathing, self-isolate from others and follow up with your health care provider.
Public officials are recommending you do NOT travel unless absolutely necessary. If you are returning from travel outside of Canada, we strongly encourage you to self-isolate for 14 days.
We know there will be lots of questions regarding the status of your programs and childcare. Our immediate goal is to address the health and safety of our community. As more information unfolds, we will be in contact with you on our next steps including course make-up, online course options, credit-on-account and refunds. We ask that you be patient as we work through this challenging time. More information will be sent to you.

COVID-19 Assessment Centre
The city will be opening its first COVID-19 Community Assessment Centre at the arena at Brewer Park (the rink). Ottawa Public Health contacted city recreation staff to identify a location, and Brewer Park was identified as the most suitable in the core.

The final collaboration between Rodgers & Hammerstein was destined to become the world’s most beloved musical. When a postulant proves too high-spirited for the religious life, she is dispatched to serve as governess for the seven children of a widowed naval Captain. Her growing rapport with the youngsters, coupled with her generosity of spirit, gradually captures the heart of the stern Captain, and they marry. Upon returning from their honeymoon they discover that Austria has been invaded by the Nazis, who demand the Captain’s immediate service in their navy. The family’s narrow escape over the mountains to Switzerland on the eve of World War II provides one of the most thrilling and inspirational finales ever presented in the theatre.
Eleanor Crowder directs the staging. Lauren Saindon directs the music. Together, along with their incredible production team, we present a show which will make more than your voice soar. You know you love this epic musical based on the real life story of the Von Trapp Family singers so mark your calendars and book your tickets.
