Photos: Blyth Festival opening night

Another season has begun at the Blyth Festival, one of the five great rural theatres in Ontario, according to The Ruralist.
Thanks to the Festival’s Facebook page for these great shots.

The Cockshutt 30 was the first production tractor built in Canada. The 30 was the first production tractor with a live PTO system (it’s only fitting that this model has been the workhorse for a theatre that develops Canadian plays).

Tony Munch (who you will see later in the season in The Devil We Know) on that sweet little Nuffield.

David Armstrong, Vice-President of the Board, offers a toast to the season just before the tractor ride to the theatre.

Kevin Winson, Technical Director, also got conscripted to drive.

At the opening night dinner, the inimitable Peter Smith was our guest speaker. Inspiring, hilarious, profound – as always!
