GHOST RIVER announces the premiere of an exciting new signature work!

The Last Voyage of Donald Crowhurst to premiere at Alberta Theatre Projects in February 2015!

February 24 – March 14, 2015

Workshop presentations coming in August and December!

LastVoyageGhost River Theatre is very pleased to be teaming up again with Alberta Theatre Projects for the premiere of our next big premiere: The Last Voyage of Donald Crowhurstby David van Belle and Eric Rose.

A visually stunning multimedia journey into deep waters. In 1969, British amateur sailor Donald Crowhurst seemed poised to win a solo, round-the-world sailing race. Suddenly, he went radio silent. Weeks later Crowhurst’s boat was found, hundreds of miles off course and with no sign of its captain. Only his logbooks remained to tell the tale of one man’s desire to win at any cost. How far would you go to win?

Our partnership with Alberta Theatre Projects made The Highest Step in the World happen in 2010.  We're thrilled to play with our friends again!  Stay tuned to our Facebook page and our website for updates as they come!

News Bites

  • GRT Co-Artistic Directors David van Belle and Eric Rose had their 5-minute work, The Program, produced in Edmonton in January as part of Theatre Yes's National Elevator Project.  A friendly customer service program went horribly wrong for one unlucky patron nightly--all in the confines of an elevator!
  • Our new venue is shaping up!  We are at over 93% on our fundraising target to re-equip the former Dancer's Studio West space on 10th Avenue.  We are working closely with our partners The Green Fools and Calgary Young People's Theatre to make the space a beautiful home for us and an accessible rental space for the whole community.
  • Ghost River Theatre has been invited to pitch its new work, The Last Voyage of Donald Crowhurst at a special session at the Magnetic North Theatre Festival this June in Halifax.  The pitch sessions provide a great opportunity to expand options for touring and finding partners for our work.
