The Theatre Group: The Caledon Townhall Players (CTHP) had their first performance of “Angels Unawares” in June 1962 in the Old Townhall, in the Village of Caledon. Subsequently, a series of short-term leases to continue use of the building were drawn up between CTHP and the Town of Caledon, and they have been presenting live theatre productions in that venue ever since. On Feb 20th, 1985, a 20 year lease was signed, and it in turn was renewed for a further 20 years commencing Dec 31st, 2004.
The Building: The Old Caledon Township Hall was built in the summer of 1875 to be used as a court house and hall. The building was used as a meeting place for the Church of England and Grange No. 174. It also served as a social centre and fondly remembered as the place where many dances, showers, euchres and public meetings were held. It should be noted that at that time there wasn’t any running water or washrooms! In October 1963, a new municipal office building (now known as Caledon Village Place) was officially opened in Caledon Village. The Town Council meetings were held there until the official opening of the Town offices in Caledon East in June 1976. Thus in 1963 the Old Townhall became the home of CTHP, and CTHP undertook to pay operating expenses and maintenance costs of the building. Read More …
