Administrative history

Arbor Theatre began in Peterborough, Ontario in 1976 when John Plank arrived to direct "The Effect of Gamma Rays on Man-in-the-Moon Marigolds" for the Peterborough Theatre Guild. The following year, local support led to the creation of Arbor Productions and John Plank directed "Private Lives" followed by "Belle of Amherst" and "Lady Audley's Secret" in 1978. In 1979, the group was reorganised as a professional theatre company performing during the summer months at Trent University's Wenjack Theatre. The company was disbanded in the mid 1990s
