One of the most active and visible organizations of the Parish, St. Olave’s Arts Guild is pleased to be celebrating its 16th anniversary this year. During worship services, the Guild has been privileged to share the Word of God through Christmas Pageants, Easter Pageants, Epistle Plays, Sermon-Length Plays, and Dramatic Readings. We have also presented Puppet Plays during coffee hours and Junior Church assemblies for the enjoyment of young and old alike.
Reaching out into the community, we are particularly proud of our “Triple Crown” in the 1990’s––presenting three major productions in three consecutive years: “The Importance of Being Earnest” (1994), “Blithe Spirit” (1995), and “Murder is a Game” (1996).
The Guild has had a leading role in St. Olave’s social activities, including theatre outings to Stratford, Dream in High Park, Mystery Dinner Theatre, and several community playhouses. It hosted successful Fall Parish Dinners in 2001 and 2002; and was the co-producer of the remarkable revival of the Mini-Caravan in October 2006. It served as convenor of a Parish Pot-Luck Dinner in late October 2007.
