Solstice and Stories

A Winter’s Eve Celebration

On December 9, Join Odyssey Theatre in celebrating the rebirth of the sun and the countdown to our 34th season of Theatre Under the Stars.

Each December, the Winter Solstice occurs on the longest night and shortest day of the year. The midwinter celebration symbolizes rebirth, regrowth and renewal, and is a reminder that the light will grow brighter and things will begin anew. For all of us at Odyssey, it marks the official countdown to our summer of Theatre Under the Stars.

On December 9, join us as we welcome back the light in anticipation of our 34th season. In the spirit of the Solstice, we’ll be sipping on mulled wine and enjoying Yuletide stories and songs from around the world.

Tickets are $25.00 and include:

  • Mulled Wine, Winter Solstice Punch and Traditional Wassail
  • Baked goods from your favourite local bakeries and caterers
  • Winter Solstice stories and songs by Ottawa’s renowned tellers Gail Anglin and Tom Lips
  • A chance to bid on some exciting gift packages, including winter holiday experiences and gifts made especially for our patrons by talented crafters and artisans

 Come in from the cold and get cozy with Odyssey.

All proceeds from the Solstice and Stories fundraiser will go towards Odyssey’s new plays and productions.
