Enjoy the Theatre and Support Nature

Calling all friends of nature and the stage -- enjoy an exciting night out and support Nature Canada at the same time!

Bear & Co., Ottawa’s newest professional theatre company, is offering a special deal that will offer you discount tickets at the same time as raising funds to support Nature Canada.

When you buy tickets (at a discount) to see a rollicking performance of Shakespeare’s The Taming of the Shrew at the Gladstone Theatre, Nature Canada will receive a portion of the ticket profit. It’s a win-win-win: a discount to you, funding for a cause, and a helping hand for the arts in your community—specifically, new audience members for Bear & Co's shows.

Just go online to buy tickets to the performance of your choice (April 19-May 4). Be sure to enter the Bear Cares code “Nature Canada" to receive $4 off your after-tax price, and to redirect $5 of your purchase to Nature Canada. Or simply mention the code when you purchase tickets from the box office (613-233-4523).

Then enjoy the show! The Taming of the Shrew plays with the issue of gender relations and the question of who holds domestic power. Bear's production explodes with energy. The all-male cast goes for broke, letting us in on a giddy, gender-bending attempt to tame a wife.
