General Questions

1Do you have talkback or question and answers sessions after every performance?
Our 2Play touring shows are always followed by a question and answers period. Our Mainstage shows also have a talkback after most performances, with some exceptions. Of course, if you attend a performance that does not have a talkback, or if you don't get a chance to ask your question, feel free to contact us and we will be happy to answer you!
2Is Geordie a charitable organization?
Yes! Geordie Productions Inc. is a registered charitable not-for-profit organization. Our charitable registration number is #11893 6962 RR0001. Please support us by making a tax-deductible donation.
3Where does the name Geordie come from?
A “Geordie” is a name for person from Northern England, sort of like how we call someone from Nova Scotia a “Bluenoser” or from Newfoundland a “Newfie”. Elsa Bolam, Geordie’s Founding Artistic Director, is originally from this region in England. She’s a “Geordie” so that’s why she chose it for the name of the company!
4Are there children in Geordie's plays?
The plays Geordie puts on are performed by professional adult actors. If your child is interested in learning about theatre, check out the Geordie Theatre School (GTS) for classes that culminate in a year-end show. Don’t forget: one of the best ways to hone your skills as a young actor is to watch professionals at their craft!
5Who performs in your productions?
Geordie is committed to producing theatre of the highest caliber, and our Mainstage series features Montreal’s finest professional talent. We are proud to support Canadian professional actors, directors, and stage managers by working with artists who are members of the Canadian Actors Equity Association, and by working with other theatre companies who are also members of the Professional Association of Canadian Theatres (PACT).

Geordie is also committed to nurturing young talent. Every year we feature two to three emerging artists in its 2Play Tour and often draw our scripts from local playwrights. To be exact 24 plays have been premiered by Geordie in the last 10 years many of which have gone on to achieve renown both in Canada and internationally!
6Does Geordie put on plays in French?
Only under special circumstances. In the 2009-2010 Season we were thrilled to present Thrice Upon A Time… in French on Sunday, February 7th at 1pm. This was made possible as ThéâtreDynamO was touring the show in French to the rest of the province.
