Ish Theilheimer, Producer
Ish lives on the Bonnechere River near Golden Lake with life partner Kathy Eisner. He started working as a playwright in 1980 with the Upper Madawaska Theatre, with which he co-wrote, wrote or contributed to six shows.

His experience with the now-iconic Wilno Express, writing news features about Valley personalities for the Ottawa Citizen, and working in the community informs what he puts onstage today.
