Orlando

Written by Sarah Ruhl

Based on the Novel by Virginia Woolf

Created by Merlin Simard and Raven John

Five Points Theatre

1 Dunlop Street West, Barrie

Based on the Virginia Woolf novel, this is the story of a young nobleman who is drawn into a love affair with Queen Elizabeth I. For a time, life at court is interesting enough, but Orlando yearns for something more. As he strives to make his way as a poet and lover, his travels keep him at the heart of a dazzling tale where gender and gender preferences shift regularly, usually with hilarious results.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.

-Proof of Vaccination & Valid ID upon entry.
-Patrons complete a Covid-19 Self-Assessment for contact tracing purposes.
-Patrons wear their mask at all times when in the building (except when actively eating or drinking)

We will do our best to keep you informed, as safety measures can change at any time.
