Theatre Collingwood celebrates International Women’s Day
In keeping with Theatre Collingwood’s annual tradition of hosting an all-female comedic show celebrating International Women’s Day, they will present Girls Nite In on March 6.
“This would have been our third year working with the Girls Nite Out comedy troupe, so we are really thrilled to be able to get comedy legend Elvira Kurt with Jennine Profeta back to perform for us again, even if it is online,” said executive director Erica Angus.
The company has discovered a real bonus to doing this show online, since friends (who may not have seen each other in a long time) can safely meet online and share the show together.
“Elvira and I are so excited to be part of this virtual event. It’s been a long year and we’re looking forward to being with the ladies again,” said Profeta, producer for Girls Nite Out comedy troupe.
Profeta is an actor (NBC, The Comedy Network, The Second City National Touring Co.), writer (CBC, Chatelaine magazine) and corporate improv facilitator (Women in Leadership and Business, Meridian, TD) with more than 20 years of experience.
Kurt has worked with some of the most prestigious comedic institutions as a stand-up comic, a television script writer, and a stage actor. She has appeared on both large and small screen. Elvira got her start with the infamous Second City Theatre of Toronto and London, and went on to work for both Comedy Central, the CBC and HBO.
Theatre Collingwood has partnered with Gibson & Company in Collingwood, who are offering special take-out charcuterie and drinks, so that you can really make your Girl’s Nite In a special celebration.
