Winter Woodland Theatre

Winter Wonderland Theatre header - comedy/tragedy masks, pinecones and snowflakes
Nine scenes from popular stage productions created by local theatre companies at Riverside Park Skate Trail (located just off Marilyn Drive, south of the playground on the west side of the park) on display until March 13, 2021.

The Downtown Theatre Project, Royal City Musical Productions Inc., and Guelph Little Theatre have teamed up with the City of Guelph to animate the Riverside Park Skate Trail with painted scenes from popular stage productions using life-sized snow people.

The City’s Culture Department works to creatively animate public space and broaden the community’s experience of the arts through temporary installations like these. Thanks to Guelph Tourism Services for their support of this project with Regional Relief and Recovery Funds through FedDev Ontario.

Additionally, this project allows theatre professionals a chance to engage with the community while their stages are dark due to COVID-19.

Visitors are invited to try and guess the scenes and can enter their answers into an online form for a chance to win one of five theatre prize packs valued at $860. Read the contest rules and regulations for further details.

We hope you find share-worthy moments during your visit and invite you to use the hashtags #winterwoodlandtheatre and #exploreguelph in your posts.

Remember to wear a mask and stay 2 meters away from folks you don’t live with.

Those unable to visit the park in person before March 13, 2021are still able to enter the contest by viewing the scenes in the online gallery below until the end of March (draw will be held April 7, 2021).
