Thursday, February 8, 2024

We are pleased to announce principal casting for our 2024 Summer Season! As previously announced, this season, our 32nd, will feature two highly-anticipated world premieres. The season will begin on July 1, 2024 with Onion Skins & Peach Fuzz: The Farmerettes, written by Alison Lawrence, based on the book by Shirleyan English and Bonnie Sitter, and directed by Autumn Smith. Beginning on July 30th, 4th Line will present Jim Watts: Girl Reporter, written by Beverley Cooper and directed by 4th Line's Managing Artistic Director Kim Blackwell.

"I am thrilled at the talent level of the actors who will be involved this coming summer. There is a wonderful mix of new actors and others who have worked with us often," explains Blackwell. "We have many returning professional actors from our region where there is an amazing talent base."

Onion Skins & Peach Fuzz: The Farmerettes will feature Rebecca Birrell who audiences may recognize from last year's production of D'Arcy Jenish's The Tilco Strike, as well as several actors making their 4th Line mainstage debut this season: Peterborough's own Aimée Gordon, Reena Goze, Megan Murphy (not to be confused with playwright and local performer of the same name), Carina Sălăjan and Alicia Salvador.

Jim Watts: Girl Reporter will feature 4th Line's founder Robert Winslow, Thomas Fournier and Mikayla Stoodley, most recently seen in the 2023 production of The Cavan Blazers. Making their 4th Line debuts: in the title role of Jean "Jim" Watts, Katie Ryerson, who recently appeared as Moaning Myrtle in the original Canadian company of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, José Andrés Bordas and Anita La Selva, who will also work as a dialect coach and assistant director on the play.
