Default Orillia Opera House - GL Auditorium

hey there, at a gathering this past weekend, my family from Orillia drove down (following big storm) and while visiting they showed me a 30 min historical documentary of their local opera house that has been playing on local cable tv - quite enjoyable, my niece performs there a few times a year, i dont get up there enough

anyhow, there are a few images (most we have seen) attached from a section that included Gord chatting away - he and his young pals first attended old movies that were shown there - the first tune he performed on this stage at age 10 was This Old House - better add that one to the next GL Trivia board game edition

Gord wrapped up by commenting that although they play many wonderful venues, Massey and the local Opera house are his two most important concert dates every tour - I still dont think my family from Orillia and other locals realize just how well-known their local boy is - I showed them a short DVD (the hospital fundraiser version) production from our last Massey gathering and they were actually a bit taken back after seeing footage of so many of the GL faithful collaborate, lol ...they did say it sounded great, so thanks again, mandomyk! - I will soon send a copy of this latest doc to the GL museum in Whiteby
