Bobcaygeon, July, 2019 - There’s nothing like a good fishing story…and this is a great one from audience favourite Norm Foster! The Great Kooshog Lake Hollis McCauley Fishing Derby brings in a professional cast of actors who have all made Globus Theatre audiences laugh before and runs from July 17th - July 27th at the Lakeview Arts Barn in Bobcaygeon. A fish-out-of-water comedy complete with romance, broken hearts and small town hospitality will resonate with both local residents and summer visitors!
Ambitious investment banker James Bell is on his way to an important conference but instead finds himself stuck in the sleepy town of Kooshog Lake on the weekend of their annual fishing derby. The warm and welcoming locals invite him to join them in hooking the big prize …and a few of them see him as quite the catch!
Anna Silvija-Broks has been performing in Globus Theatre productions since the company opened its doors! For Globus’ sweet 16th season, Anna stars in The Great Kooshog Lake Hollis McCauley Fishing Derbyas Sienna, the general store owner who knows everyone in town. Artistic Producer of Globus Theatre,James Barrett, will play Kirk Douglas - no, not the film actor but the man responsible for starting the fishing derby in the first place. Tara Koehler, who our audiences will fondly remember from Sugar Roadlast year, comes back again to play Melanie Morningside. The role of James Bell, the city slicker we can all giggle at, will be performed by Canadian Comedy Award Winner, Connor Thompson. Artistic Director, Sarah Quick, has taken on directing the play and at the same time performs the hilarious Rhonda Borkowski, a small town girl with a huge personality!
"I am very excited to bring together a dream team of Globus favourites to perform in this exceptionally funny play by Norm Foster. Norm's plays are always a huge hit with audiences and we anticipate a busy two weeks so audiences should get their tickets now!" - Sarah Quick, Artistic Director
