Stroll the streets of Orillia — "Mariposa" as immortalized by Canada's greatest humourist, Stephen Leacock — and then visit his historic home on Lake Simcoe in a quiet bay with amazing views. You'll be able to visit what is now the Leacock Museum National Historic Site, where he wrote Sunshine Sketches of a Little Town. A delicious lunch will be prepared for you by FARE Restaurant, and you can take it as a box lunch to eat by the lake or in the gardens, or eat in the restaurant itself. A visit to Leacock Museum is a perfect way to spend a summer's afternoon.

FARE Restaurant Patio View

Later that day, either for a matinee or an evening performance, see a fantastic professional comedy in one of the most glorious turn of the century theatres you will ever see. Recently renovated with modern seating and comfortable climate control, you'll be entertained at the Orillia Opera House by some of the best professional actors in the country. This year's cast includes veterans of Stratford, Shaw, film and television.

DINNER: Your Choice

Two Dining Experiences

After (or before) the show, visit either the Grape and Olive Martini Bar at the Best Western, or Fionn MacCool's beside the Champlain, for a sumptuous meal.

(Remember, your choice of hotel doesn't change which Dinner venue you choose. You can stay at the hotel of your choice and select between one of our two wonderful restaurants for Dinner.)

When Mark and Gretchen decide to move in together at fifty-something, they think they’ve got it all figured out. But their grown-up children have other ideas. Mark’s son Brett is a wannabe rock star who says he'll lend a hand – but never quite gets around to it. Gretchen’s daughter Rachel is a cop who flies across the country to arrest her mom's midlife crisis. Sparks fly and jokes crackle in this new and hilarious show by Canada’s comedy genius.

Directed by Opera House Artistic Director Jesse Collins, and co-produced with Upper Canada Playhouse.

When Brett’s Aunt Maggie dies and leaves him a gorgeous old house in a charming tourist town, it’s a chance to start anew. From nosy neighbors to renovation disasters, they face one hilarious challenge after another.

Halfway There

by Norm Foster

Stewiacke, Nova Scotia, is a small town with a big claim to fame: it’s halfway between the North Pole and the equator. But that’s not the only thing that makes it special. It’s also home to Vi, Rita, Mary Ellen, and Janine, four friends who know everything about everyone in this tiny town. Well, almost everything. They didn’t see Sean coming. He’s a handsome doctor who just moved in for a temporary job at the clinic. And things are about to get interesting in the lives of four old friends.
