‘OUTSIDE’ GALA at The 519 on March 19th

Tickets are now on sale for Roseneath’s OUTSIDE GALA at The 519 on March 19th. Join us for an evening of great theatre, food and special guests, as we raise money to take Paul Dunn’s OUTSIDE across Ontario.

Outside tells the story of Daniel, a teen who triumphs over homophobic bullying, depression and suicide.  At his new school he shares his story at a meeting of the Gay Straight Alliance.  Meanwhile at his old school, struggling to come to terms with what happened, his friends Krystina and Jeremy attempt to start their own GSA.

Outside Fundraiser Jim






This one-time gala performance includes hors d’oeuvres, special guests, a silent auction and a fully-staged performance of Outside.
The work Roseneath is undertaking with Outside has the potential to make a significant impact in the life of a young audience member – perhaps most significantly so in the rural communities on the tour. One of our more salient goals in programming Outside is to get the play out to those communities beyond the GTA – communities in which a young person coming to grips with their new found LGBTQ-identity might not have the breadth of support offered to a teenager in Toronto.

Outside made its premiere last year, and received Dora Mavor Moore Award nominations for Outstanding New Play and Outstanding Performance. This year the play tours across Ontario for a second time, from March 21 – May 13, 2016.

All money raised from this event will support the cost of touring Outside to remote areas of the province, starting conversation and promoting understanding and support.


And if you want to get an idea of how much fun the event well be, here are some photos from our Family Friendly Fundraiser on February 28th.

February Update

Dear Friends of Roseneath,

This winter we’re offering two brilliant ways for you to support Roseneath Theatre while having a fabulous time. Our afternoon Family-Friendly-Fundraiser is suited to younger kids and their caregivers, and our Outside Gala in the Grand Ballroom of The 519 will prove a great night-out for an audience of adults (teens are welcome). Feel warm and fuzzy in the dead of winter, as you buoy our efforts to bring world-class theatre to young people clear across the Province!

These events are an excellent chance for the public to see two of three highly-acclaimed productions Roseneath Theatre is touring Ontario this season. Proceeds from these events will enable us to reach farther into the Province, reaching communities that don’t as-often have access to this type of arts experience.

-Andrew Lamb, Artistic Director 

Money Tree Fundraiser February 28

Roseneath Theatre throws open its doors on Sunday, February 28th for a FAMILY-FRIENDLY FUNDRAISER in the heart of Toronto’s Dundas-West Village.  The event promises a fun-filled day, with something for younger and older attendees alike.

The day will be anchored by a performance of Robert Watson’s The Money Tree and will highlight food offerings from local Dundas West hotspots.
