ABOUT MUSKOKA PLAYERS:
Muskoka Players is Joan Bendon and William Colgate. Although Joan and William call Muskoka home, their work has taken them across Canada and the world. Married for 42 years, Joan and Bill’s combine theatrical experience represents close to a century of “trodding the boards.” Theatre is, in its essence, storytelling. Therefore, one could make the case that there has been theatre in Muskoka since the earliest indigenous peoples shared tales around a campfire. Since 1934 when John Holden’s Actor’s Colony Theatre became the first summer stock company in Ontario there has been professional theatre in cottage country. Thus began a tradition which begat, among many others, The Straw Hat Players which begat The Muskoka Festival which begat Dot The T Productions which begat Muskoka Players.
