THE TESTAMENT OF MARY – 5 W’s

THE TESTAMENT OF MARY

WHO: Testament of Mary stars Holly Turner (last seen onstage at NLT in THE BUSY WORLD IS HUSHED). Holly brought this script to NLT A.D. Trevor Schmidt as a vehicle for herself, and at 70 years old, she’s delighted to be the most mature actress to have performed the role! Did you know that before her successful career as a lawyer she appeared on Broadway playing opposite Henry Fonda?

WHAT: Did you know that the show was protested in its original (and subsequent) productions by members of the Catholic Church and other religious groups for its controversial depiction of an earthly mother of Christ who questions the divinity of her own son? And that the Rosary Rally of Edmonton has already applied for permission to demonstrate against NLT’s production?

WHEN: The Testament of Mary runs for ten performances – Tuesday to Sunday at 7:30PM October 26-November 4. With a Sunday Matinee at 2:00PM on October 29th.

WHERE: The black-box theatre of the newly-minted Studio Theatre will be transformed into the mindscape of our Mary, as she wrestles with the past, her memories, and the ever-shifting notion of human vs. spiritual belief. How can you believe what cannot be seen with the eye –and doubted by the heart? (10330 84 Ave NW, Edmonton, AB T6E 2G9)

WHY: NLT enters its 42nd year continuing a tradition of programming fresh, thought-provoking, controversial scripts that examine our society, our hierarchy of values and the way we fit into the world as it is – and how we want it to be in the future.

BINGO!

BINGO

Northern Light Theatre has a number of fundraising projects, one of which is bingos. We work 12 bingos a year, and raise an average $7,500 a year. The much needed funds go toward our artistic programming and represent one third of the budget for any given production. Each bingo requires 9-11 volunteers; all of whom are provided a light meal, valuable coupons from sponsors, and a free ticket to one of our shows. The time commitment is less than 5 hours, and we have afternoon and evening shifts available. An ability to walk and make change is needed, but training is provided and we generally have a good time together as we raise funds essential to NLT.

The next six events are being held as follows:
Thursday November 9th – 11:00AM – 3:45 PM
Wednesday November 29th – 5:00PM – 9:30PM
Friday December 15th – 11:00AM – 3:45 PM
Friday January 5th – 11:00AM – 3:45 PM
Monday January 29th – 5:00PM – 9:30PM
Wednesday 28th – 11:00AM – 3:45 PM

If you would like to help us with any of these events, please contact Catherine Wenschlag at artisticassociate@northernlighttheatre.com or the office 780-471-1586.
