Ghosts of The LaSalle Theatre

What We’ll Do

All theatres have a ghost. Or, at least, they should. Well, The LaSalle Theatre is blessed. We have 6 – 8 ghosts and spirits (there is a difference) in the theatre. Come with me – Michael Rawley – raconteur and Managing Artistic Director of the theatre – on this entertaining and informative tour of our theatre and it’s otherworldly residents.

In this online 40 minute experience, you will be taken on an interactive tour of the building and it’s residents. You will hear their stories and how we found out they were in residence. You will be asked about your personal experiences with the other world. Your belief or lack thereof will be affirmed, changed perhaps – tested even. Maybe you will find out that you have ‘the gift’ and can sense their presence. Full disclosure: I, Michael Rawley, can’t – to my constant chagrin.

This tour is fully approved by our residents. I know because, through a medium, I asked their permission and was granted it. See you at the theatre.

Meet your host, Michael Rawley

My name is Michael Rawley and I am the Managing Artistic Director of The LaSalle Theatre and the charity SaveTheLaSalle here in Kirkland Lake. I have had a 42-year career in the theatre as an actor and theatre artist. My career has taken me all across Canada, the USA and Europe. My claims to fame are playing SCAR in Disney’s The Lion King in Toronto and on the American National Tour and performing the role of SCROOGE in A Christmas Carol every Christmas for 13 years now – all across Canada. This passion has been with me my whole life since the age of three when I sat in my family’s seats at The Royal Alexandra Theatre in Toronto watching every show that came to town. My grandfather Ernest Rawley, you see, was the General Manager of the Royal so, you could say, I went into the family business. And here we are today. I mentor young actors in The LaSalle Theatre Company through our very successful Shakespeare in the Park series and many other productions in the theatre. I am passionately committed to achieving the restoration of the LaSalle back to its original 1939 opening night glory and giving the town of Kirkland Lake the beautiful jewel of a theatre this district deserves as the premier arts centre of North Eastern Ontario.
