Freddie Wood Turns 50, Again

The Frederic Wood Theatre’s season of 50th Anniversary activities kicks off Nov. 18 with the opening of Stages of Success: Theatre at UBC Since 1916, an exhibit featuring over half a century’s worth of memorabilia from the theatre including old programs, photos and reviews. It will be on display from Nov. 18 to Dec. 5 at UBC’s Robson Square campus, open Monday-Friday from 8 a.m. - 8 p.m. and Saturday 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. Admission is free.

Ever wondered what it would be like to trod the boards for a living, or work behind the scenes? In conjunction with the exhibit, alumni now working in the theatre and film industries will talk about life in the business in a series of free public presentations. The seminar series begins Nov. 22 with a talk given by two of the three “lone gunmen” from the X-Files TV series. Tom Braidwood and Bruce Harwood will talk about acting in TV and film.

Other alumni scheduled to talk include Morris Panych, John MacLachlan Gray, Bill Millerd and Chan Centre architect Bing Thom. All seminars begin at 7:30 p.m. at UBC Robson Square. For more information and a complete seminar schedule visit www.theatre.ubc.ca or call 604.822.0050.

Freddie Wood anniversary activities will culminate in a grand homecoming party for alumni the afternoon of Dec. 7, followed by a Fundraising Gala in the evening. Both events will be held at the Frederic Wood Theatre on campus. The homecoming runs from 1 - 6 p.m. and admission is free but let organizers know if you plan to attend by e-mailing them at fwt50@interchange.ubc.ca or calling 604.822.2678.

Tickets for the Fundraising Gala, being held to support the Frederic Wood Foundation and student scholarships, are $125. The event includes a variety show with well-known theatre alumni Nicola Cavendish, Joy Coghill, Jane Mortifee, Richard Ouzounian and others. To purchase tickets call 604.822.2678.
