Critics Have Spoken
“Iain Moggach is the whip-smart, creative artistic director of Theatre by the Bay in Barrie, Ont. I have found his productions inventive, unusual but still embracing theatre. If anything he strives to attract an audience that might not necessarily go to the theatre.”
“Theatre by the Bay’s latest play [Mno Bimaadiziwin] is not only funny, emotional, intelligent and timely, but it is also quite simply the most important production the company has ever put on. Period.”
“[Mary of Shanty Bay is] a lovely, inspiring and touching production told with grace and class by a committed cast.”
“The brilliant [Bobbie] has everything an audience would want in a show.”
“BEST THEATRE COMPANY EVER!!!!! Amazing people and work and they always put local arts and stories first. TBTB will always be my favourite.”
“Fantastic organization & lovely people. I had the pleasure of doing a co-op with Iain and Patricia last winter after one of TBTB’s collaborations with Eastview SS. TBTB’s determination to reflect local history in their work and educate people is what makes everything they do so special.”
“Bobbie Rosenfeld’s unconquerable spirit in her need to play sport marks Romanek’s script [Bobbie] one for the Canadian theatre canon.”
“Iain Moggach has taken Theatre by the Bay to award-winning new heights since he became artistic director”
